Diner Reviews
  • "Don't forget to try their veal chop. It is the best."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Ever since our friends introduced us to Da Domenico a couple years ago, we have not been disappointed. We have passed along the favor by introducing our friends to this notable restaurant. The food is very tasty and quite authentically Italian. The servers aim to make our dining a pleasurable experience."

  • "I had not been to Da Domenico in about 8 years and that was a mistake. I should have come back sooner. Note that we came for lunch so the crowd is more businesslike than for dinner. We arrived at 12:15 and there was plenty of seating space but for a Monday that was not bad at all. We both ordered the Salmon special which was priced a little on the high side given that it was lunch but kind of expected for this particular Italian restaurant. It was cooked very well and I would order it again. Definitely returning."

  • "As soon as we walked in, we noticed the average age of the wait staff is 55 or 60, often a great sign. It was clear they were veterans of the well run restaurant. The service was a little slow, though the result of being understaffed and not any lack of intention by the waiter. The wines by the glass were a little too pedestrian for the very good food."

  • "We found out about this restaurant on Open Table. We saw that it had great reviews and it was close to our daughters school ( GMU), we were taking her and her best friend to dinner for their Birthday. From the moment we walked in the door the service began. We were greeted with warmth and a genuine feeling of welcome. The wait staff were very pleasant and every suggestion was spot on. The food was amazing, not heavy and the portions were just right. We brought our own dessert of cupcakes, which they had no problem with and then they brought tiramisu for the Birthday girls. We will go back again and again. Great last minute find. Don't be put off by the fact they are located in a strip mall."

  • "The fettuccine con vongole was the most flavorful version that I have ever had of this dish anywhere. The insalata Mista was delicious and both of our desserts, pana cotta and Sicilian cannoli were excellent."

  • "Great food, good time, good service and loved the entertainment! Would recommend!"

  • "Very good dining experience--excellent food and service (JB was an outstanding server). The kitchen was slow apparently due to several large groups. The server made up for the time it took for the meal to be served with attentiveness, and Italian meals should be gradually enjoyed, anyhow. However, I recommend that the restaurant should better staff its kitchen AND limit the number of large groups."

  • "After reviewing the long list of awards you say to your self , can't be that bad. WRONG. It's day has come and gone. Interior needs a make over. It's just too bad. After receiving our appetizers which where dishes that had the opportunity to be great. We sent them both back . spoiled food. ask for our check and explained the situation and left. No one tried to stop us we left a half bottle of wine."

  • "I loved the food there ! I lived in Rome, Italy for eight years and I can say that the food was really authentic. Great service as well. I would go there again."

  • "We had not been Da Daminico is several years. I was so happy to see it is still as delicious as always. Eating there is like stepping back in time when going out was an event, where you were welcomed and waited on and not rushed! The shrimp in the scampi were delicious. I topped it off with a fabulous panna cotta! The restaurant was not very busy on this past Friday night. I hope people rediscover this landmark. It is too good to lose!"

  • "We went to Da Domenico for my Mom's birthday. We enjoyed the fried mozzarella appetizer and calamari. The marinara sauce was fresh and flavorful. My chicken dish with prosciutto and fontina cheese was so delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meals except for my brother who ordered the lasagna. He said the pasta layers were not tasty and he didn't like the meat sauce. My mother loved the ravioli filled with sausage and spinach. It wasn't heavy at all. My husband especially loved his salmon with peppercorn cream sauce. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. The menu is sure to please everyone and the service and price are unbeatable. We will come back again."

  • "This restaurant is fantastic - delicious, warm, and outstanding service. We came earlier than expected, and we were taken immediately with a "no problem" attitude - the restaurant wasn't even officially open yet! Our meal was delicious, the timing of each course well done, and overall just an amazing time."

  • "We have been eating at Da Domenico s annually for 10 years when we make out once a year trip up Tyson's Corner. The food is always consistently excellent. However the service these last 2 years was so awful that we cannot justify returning."

  • "Went to celebrate a very special birthday which was never acknowledged by the staff. In the past, they'd bring out dessert with a candle and serenade. They also gave out roses on Valentines Day to all female diners in the past. No more. What a disappointment. Very noisy. Stale bread. Got into an argument when we asked for fresh bread. Had to ask three times before the bread was replaced with wonderfully hot, freshly baked bread. The veal chop was much better this time than the last. They used to be very consistent. The staff used to be very pleasant always. Like the roses and birthday dessert, a thing of the past..."

  • "Everything was absolutely perfect during our special occasion dinner."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We made reservations at this restaurant, but when we arrived the front of the restaurant was soooo backed up. There were about 20 people waiting by the front door. Our reservation was at 9pm and people were still waiting to be seated from 8pm reservations. Needless to say we left and had to find another place to have dinner on Valentine's Day (which was difficult). They should not have booked these reservations if they couldn't provide the space. Very frustrating. THIS REVIEW IS SAYING NOTHING ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD (WE DIDN'T GET TO EAT THERE)"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have past this location many times but wondered about its location in the Tyson's area and the quality of the food. However, always looking to try Italian Restaurants in NoVA I recently made reservation for dinner for my wife and I. We both had the Veal Chop as our main dish which was fantastic. My wife's buratta appetizer was very nice as was my sausage over polenta (both on their Valentine's Day fixed menu-Yup, first time). The homemade ricotta cheesecake was like GrandMa used to make which was also fantastic!!! So after our meal I could hear my mother whispering into my ear one of her favorite sayings, "Never Judge A Book By Its Cover." We will definitely return as I saw many dishes on their on-line menu to try."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a table for 14-16 and we had to wait for the last table to leave for over 15-20 mintes. Had some issues with separate checks, but the food was good and service OK. Food came out a little slowly, but we enjoyed the experience."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Honestly, this was one of the most disappointing attempts at a dining experience we'd ever had. We made a reservation for dinner on Valentine's Day (8:30pm). We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time - there were at least 20 couples standing in the entryway, all with 8:30 reservations (at least one couple with an 8pm reservation that had not been seated yet - and couples with 8:30 reservations were seated before them). Extremely unorganized and unfriendly, the staff of the restaurant preferred to ignore the giant crowd at the front, answer no questions, and randomly pick couples to seat at tables (who knows if they had reservations). After about 20 or 30 minutes, we gave up on ever getting our table and went somewhere else."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It had been a few years since we were last at Da Domenico's- - -new ownership in the interim. Food was very good, bordering on great- - -much better than we recalled - - - and the service was excellent. Prices were reasonable and, unlike many nearby restaurants, you could actually enjoy a conversation. Overall, a very positive experience; we will be back again soon."

  • "We had a late dinner reservation for 6. The food was terrific, particularly the calamari, veal chop, linguine volgare and eggplant parm, although the spaghetti on the side was cold. The linguini carbonara not so great (onions!). The appetizers and salads were large servings, but the entrees were average size. The service left something to be desired, though. The waitress was slow and got at least one order incorrect. We waited 20 minutes after our beverages were served for her to take our orders. Bread took forever and was not fresh. Drink refills were slow in coming and her "back in a few minutes" was more like 15-20. In summary - great Italian food, reasonable prices, nice place for all ages and appetites"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "One would think a reservation at 6:30pm would allow for great service. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Service was slow and to be honest the food was a little disappointing. We have dined at here many times over the years but have never had to wait so long for a drink order or food order to be taken. Drinks were not refilled and the food was very late in being served. we received our check before we received our desert and were never offered refills on coffee towards the end of the evening."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "A variety of specials and a great menu including the always excellent veal chop. Very nice wine list and "super" martinis."

  • "Ate here twice in 2 days. The food was very good both days the service varied. Overall they have very reasonable prices and food that is very good for price. Wine selection is adequate. Service the second time was fantastic. I wish I lived closer as this would make a great spot for regular dining."

  • "My daughter and I had an excellent New Year's Eve dinner. Although the restaurant was very crowded, we were taken to our table right away. I had their signature veal chop and my daughter ordered the filet duo. Both entrees were cooked to perfection. The deserts were excellent and the complimentary champagne was very good. We did not feel rushed and the overall experience started the New Year on a festive note."
