Sorriso (moderate). A lively bar, pizzeria, and ristorante near the Uptown Theater, Sorriso offers good pre- or post-movie dining. The pizzas are impressive with well-made, well-cooked crusts.

Other good choices are bruschetta topped with tomato, garlic, and basil or carpaccio of tuna to start; well-cooked pastas, including rigatoni with a splendid Bolognese sauce; and meat courses like a tender osso buco in red-wine sauce, served with polenta. The wine list has a number of good bottles in the $20 range, service is friendly and prompt, and the place is completely smoke-free.

Sorriso, 3518 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-537-4800. Open daily for dinner, Tuesday through Saturday for lunch.
