Bar Cantinetta is a rustic Italian spot with just a few tables in a quiet part of Capitol Hill, and it’s one of our favorite places for date night. The rotating pastas are great, and the cedar plank pecorino is mandatory over a bottle of wine. If you can get a spot in the corner, you’re in for some romantic candlelight feels and the best seat in the house for staring into each other’s eyes and grossing out the waiters.
