Garden Cafe Italia at The National Gallery of Art, menu by Fabio Trabocchi

"Garden Café Italia
In honor of the exhibitions Venice: Canaletto and His Rivals (February 20–May 30, 2011) and Italian Master Drawings from the Wolfgang Ratjen Collection, 1525–1835 (May 8–November 27, 2011), as well as the Gallery's renowned collection of Italian masterpieces, Chef Fabio Trabocchi will transform the menu in the Garden Café from February 11, 2011 to March 20, 2012. Returning from New York to DC to open the highly anticipated restaurant Fiola in Penn Quarter, Chef Trabocchi has created a menu of signature Italian dishes for the Garden Café, including a buffet as well as à la carte selections.

Located in the West Building near the 6th Street and Constitution Avenue entrance, the Garden Café is open for lunch Monday to Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 4:00 p.m. It offers a special preconcert menu on performance Sundays, October to May, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. For more information or to make reservations, please call (202) 712-7454 or visit

Garden Café Italia is presented in partnership with Restaurant Associates and Executive Chef David Rogers at the National Gallery of Art."

The exhibitions are impressive and the original Gondola they have at the Mezzanine level is unique and worth viewing. We are proud to be working with The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, such a remarkable institution!
