our arucola story

5534 Connecticut Ave NW Washington DC 20015


Arucola is a family-friendly Italian restaurant nestled in the heart of Chevy Chase, DC. We offer an authentic Italian experience for our patrons, including homemade pasta and breads, a wood burning pizza oven, fresh seafood, and daily specials that will keep you coming back time and time again!

As residents of the Chevy Chase DC neighborhood for 10 years, we have thoroughly enjoyed the walkability of the neighborhood and have wholeheartedly supported locally owned shops and restaurants up and down our strip of Connecticut Avenue just south of Chevy Chase Circle.

We are proud to carry on the legacy of Arucola which has been a part of our community for many years. Thank you to all of the long-time regulars of this great restaurant, and we want to continue to make you feel at home! We also wish to welcome new regulars into the restaurant, and hope that you will stop by with family and friends to experience the "new" Arucola soon.
