Chef Luigi Diotaiuti’s latest concept “Aperto” is named after the Italian word for “open”. Featuring an open kitchen, a comfortable atmosphere and honest Italian cuisine, Aperto offers Washingtonians the freshest Italian flavors with a contemporary twist. Aperto’s culinary philosophy combines Chef Luigi’s full-circle vision of providing patrons with the best from the past, present, and future of Italian cuisine while incorporating as many house-made, local, organic, free-range, and sustainably farmed products as possible.
