The Fine Print

Our Dinners at the Chef's Table are a single-seating, fixed price, fixed menu dinners.  A vegetarian offering may be substituted with advance request.  Guests sit communally at our chef’s table in our Laboratorio demonstration kitchen and will be able to watch and interact with our Chef as their meal is prepared.  Courses are served family style and our chef will join you at every course to describe what has been prepared.  Throughout the year our dinners may be prepared by visiting Italian guest chefs, hosted by winemaker colleagues or feature a particular region or specialty.  

Dinners range in price from $75 to $200 for a four course meal, depending upon the specific menu. Wine pairings can be added for an additional $40 or guests can purchase wine to enjoy with their meal at retail prices with no corkage fee from our in house enoteca (wine store).  We call this our CYOB (Choose Your Own Bottle) program.


Our dinners start at 7:00 and you should expect to spend two to three hours in order to fully enjoy the entire experience.  Because we seat our guests communally at a single table, we ask that you arrive early to check in and enjoy a complimentary pre-dinner aperitivo.  This allows us to assign seats and to seat the entire group promptly at 7:00.  We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, but most courses are served family style and guests that arrive late cannot be guaranteed to receive all courses.


For more information visit our FAQ section. 

Why Tickets?

All of our events are ticketed events with limited seating.  Tickets are purchased in advance, on a first-come first-served basis until sold out.  Events at Via Umbria are unique and human scale experiences that are carefully crafted to create an outstanding and memorable dynamic.  By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows and ensure that we create the best possible experience at the best possible price for what we offer. 


Each month’s tickets are offered for sale all at once, through our monthly event calendar, which is typically posted at least a month in advance.  We provide advance notice on Facebook and Twitter a few days before posting of a new calendar.  Subscribers to our newsletter are given an exclusive 24 hour pre-release opportunity to purchase tickets.  For most events, the maximum number of tickets that can be purchased in a single transaction is 6, although larger groups can attempt to make multiple separate purchases.  Event buy outs and private events are also possible.  Please contact us if you are interested in more information. 


Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged for a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie. Ticket prices do not include a 10% DC Meals Tax, which will be added to your purchase, or gratuity, which is at your discretion.

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling us at (202) 333-3904 or emailing us at feedme@viaumbria.com.
