Al Crostino will open in its new Shaw digs tomorrow, and guests will receive 30 percent off their checks through Sunday.
The Italian restaurant, which relocated from U Street NW, will be pretty similar to its previous incarnation. Owners and daughter-mother team Lina and Juliana Nicolai will serve up plenty of pastas plus some new fried items like calamari. The first floor will be a casual wine bar, while the upstairs will host the main dining room.
Reservations can be made by calling (202) 797-0523. The restaurant should have an OpenTable page next week.
