Dinner at the Chef's Table
Each Friday and Saturday evening we host a Dinner at the Chef's Table, which like our most memorable meals in Italy are shared experiences around a table with others, communal and social, with simple, yet unforgettable food and wine.
We believe you cannot find a comparable experience or better dinner in all of Washington, DC.

The Fine Print
Our Dinners at the Chef's Table are single-seating, fixed price, fixed menu dinners. Typically, guests sit at a communal table in our demonstration kitchen, though we will occasionally host parties in our downstairs wine room. Diners are joined at every course for an introduction to each dish. Throughout the year, our dinners may be prepared by visiting Italian guest chefs, hosted by winemaker colleagues or themed around a particular region or specialty. A vegetarian offering may be substituted with advance request.
Dinners range in price from $75 to $150 for a four course meal, depending upon the specific menu. The Chef's chosen wine pairings can be added for an additional charge. Alternatively, our Choose Your Own Bottle (CYOB) program allows guests to purchase wine from our in-house Enoteca (wine store) without the corkage fee.
How it works: We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early for check in so that we can seat the whole group promptly at 7pm. While you wait, we will provide a glass of complimentary prosecco while you mingle and explore the Via Umbria storefront. Dinners begin at 7:00 pm; we suggest that guests expect to spend two to three hours with us in order to fully enjoy the experience. We always do our best to accommodate late arrivals, but can not guarantee that late guests will receive all courses.

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.
