Capitol Hill tradition since 1988
Tom and Linda McElroy dreamed of opening their own restaurant.
In 1988 they found a cozy little corner in Capitol Hill
and created Ristorante Machiavelli. A lot has changed
in the neighborhood since then, but the Machiavelli
mission has never wavered: warm, familiar faces and
delicious, consistent food at reasonable prices. In
over two decades as a local favorite, Machiavelli has
earned a reputation for bringing people together and
making them feel like family. With the help of a devoted
staff the restaurant has nurtured a clientele of loyal
regular customers and newcomers alike.
2013 Tom and Linda passed the restaurant on to longtime
partners Suzette Jarding and Javier Arevalo. Suzette
and Javier have been with Machiavelli since 1999 and
are dedicated to continuing the Machiavelli tradition
of great food and great friends.
