Falls Church, VA
We stopped in at Argia's for a quick lunch and enjoyed our experience. The atmosphere was pleasantly dim (despite a large window at either side of the long dining hall), intimate and modern. Argia has somewhat of an urban feel, as urban as one can get in in Falls Church City, with an exposed ceiling look, solid chunky oak furniture, and simple artwork, including several textured murals and an old-world mural, which adds some warmth. There is a small bar area, a large dining room, and in the rear of the restaurant there is a small outdoor seating area that is separated from the parking lot by a tall wooden half-fence.
Our waiter Cal was knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive. We promptly received our water, our wine order and a basket of delicious hot bread. Our menu choices were basic - Spaghetti with Meatballs and Cappellini Fresca. They cheerfully accommodated our request for spicy marinara sauce, which was delicious. Both entrees come with a side of a green Mediterranean salad with a light dressing. The food was great, service was great, overall a thumbs up and a definite prospect for a return to Argia's.
