A couple sits at a table on Ristorante Piccolo's second-floor balcony, peering over the wrought-iron railing at the historic C&O Canal as plumes of heat rise from plates of pasta showered in red sauce. Dishes arrive fresh from the kitchen of the lovingly restored 250-year-old building, where chef Arnaldo Rubio calls on 25 years of experience as he whips up daily batches of fresh ravioli and gnocchi. Around the dining room, Murano glass light fixtures illuminate crisp table linens and the intricate woodwork around a trio of fireplaces. Out on the ground-floor patio, patrons can digest platefuls of lasagna, ravioli, and risotto as the sun looks on enviously.
