Budget Friendly Georgetown Brunch

Georgetown is not the place you think of when talking inexpensive brunch. But after a long bike ride using Capital Bikeshare from Bethesda to Georgetown, we ventured away from the waterfront in search of just that. We headed up 31st Street when we spotted a cute little house that had been transformed into an Italian restaurant called Ristorante Piccolo.  The hostess explained the $20 brunch meal comes with an appetizer, entree, and 1 drink. She hooked us immediately. 

As soon as we sat down, we noticed the excellent service. The waiter and servers were extra attentive which we appreciated especially since the meal was such a deal. We kicked off our meal with drinks – there is a choice of champagne, a mimosa, or a Bloody Mary. 

Next up – time to choose food! Even though Piccolo is an Italian restaurant, the menu does not only feature carbs. There are plenty of pasta dishes but also many lighter dishes to choose from. We picked a classic brunch option and a lamb dish to try a variety of the menu. 


Ristorante Piccolo is open for brunch Saturday and Sunday.  They also have an express 2 course lunch meal for $14 Monday through Friday and a dinner menu 7 days a week.
