From a classic Italian restaurant in downtown Bethesda, you might expect traditional feast of the seven fishes to be held on Christmas Eve, just as they do in Positano Italy. And you will find it Christmas Eve, from noon until 10:00 PM.

And you'll also find it Christmas Day, from noon to 9:00 PM, as well. The menu both days includes Clams Casino, Fried Cod, Linguini Clams, Octopus and Calamari Salad, Fried Smelts, Stuffed Shrimp, Calamari a la Luciana.

Pricing will be a la carte. You can order individual items, or all seven. Prepare for the aromas of Christmas sweets to fill the room. For those who would like to order something else, their regular menu is also available all day.
