Best in Old TownWe've been to Landini's several times and have never been disappointed. The food is beyond excellent and the service is fantastic. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWe had a large party for Mother's day. When we arrived our table was ready as promised and we were escorted upstairs. The quarters were a bit tight (tables are close together), but otherwise very accommodating. Full menu was offered along with quite a few specials. Food was excellent and service was outstanding- helpful but not intrusive. All in all, a very nice experience. Twenty percent tip was added automatically to our bill, so pay attention to your receipt.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMParking was an issue, althoughParking was an issue, although the atmosphere and food were one of a kind. The stone walls and dim lighting added to the ambiance. Great Linguine and Clams - white sauce was nice and light - not creamy. The Linguine was the special and it was delectable - layered flavors and texture. Cannoli and cappuccino was to die for! A must to top off the fine dining experience.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a dateLoud enough to not be heard by others, quiet enough for serious conversation. My partner and I both ordered seafood specials: soft shell crab and rockfish. Tasty - I'd recommend specials as they use what's seasonal. Oysters and artichokes were good starters. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, but not annoying or trying to get personal.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWORTH A SPECIAL TRIP!A really wonderful restaurant. Great food and excellent service make this a lovely dining experience. We visit Landini each time we travel north from Florida and stop in Alexandria.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood choice, preparation andFood choice, preparation and taste were all outstanding.

thanks for making this group event even more memorable!!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWell, this was interestingWell, this was interesting for me, because it was my first time back to Landini Brothers in 19 years! My now ex-husband and I first went to dinner there on a vacation long ago, and our meal was so wonderful we went back again the very next night and had exactly the same meal, lol. So, now that my daughter has moved to DC, I wanted to go back and see if it was still great - and it was. We actually went for lunch. I had the same cream of asparagus soup I remembered so well to start with, as well as the duck pate' which was delicious. Our chicken and veal entrees were excellent. I give the desserts a B - certainly not bad, but not memorable, either. And I just love the restaurant itself - the stone and wood - very romantic...4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner in Old Town AlexandriaWe were visiting with a client in Alexandria and had dinner at Landini at their suggestion.

The food was as always delicious, did not even bring anything home because there was nothing left to bring home.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the regular menu itemsAll of the regular menu items are delicious but this time I had the lobster linguine special and it blew my mind. It was so good that my girlfriend kept trying to trade bites of her meal for bites of mine. Order anything tough because you really can't go wrong!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!Second time to this gem. Everything about the restaurant is top notch. Highly recommended.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my fourth visit toThis is my fourth visit to Landini Brothers.

Great food!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great, the serversThe food was great, the servers were even better. Reservations are recommended, but not really necessary if you arrive before late evening.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. Kitchen modifiedGreat service. Kitchen modified two dishes to meet customer desires. Casual environment, but with class.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly Enjoyable.I had'd been to Landini Brothers in years and we are so glad we made a reservation there for Saturday night. (fyi they now have valet parking friday and saturday evenies). We were sat at at perfect table next to a window. Food at Landini was great! The only drawback was a dessert which really wasn't as described, but it was removed from the check. Our salads/soups were great--very fresh. But, it was our entrees that impressed our table of four the most. Our new go-to Italian restaurant.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI'LL BE BACK.Food was great. Server was one of the best. We had a party of 10 and he met all our needs with drinks and great food. I'll ask for him again.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience as usual-Great experience as usual- it is one of my favoerite restaurants in the DC area.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been going to Landini'sI have been going to Landini's for a while now and what is most impressive based on the volume that they do is the consistent service they have with staff as well as consistency of their food. Veal, steak, seafood, pasta are all of the best I have ever had and I do travel quite frequently.
The "specials" list is always fun because they have alot of specials but even those are of top-notch quality and consistency.
They really never disappoint.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite place to eatOur favorite place to eat in Alexandria.

The food and portions were amazing. I will be sure to come back very soon. It was a little busy the night we went and even had to wait about 10 min for the table to be ready.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
