Diner Reviews
  • "I am split on how I feel about Landini Brothers. First, all of the plates at my table of six were cleaned, so that's a good sign. The food was good, not outstanding, but I have high standards for Italian food. The sauce on my vitello ai funghi was yummy, however, the veal itself was dry & disappointing. My husband ordered the clams & mussels: note to patrons - you only get shellfish- it is not served with any pasta or bread, so be prepared to order extra or eat only shellfish... Our waitstaff seemed a little overwhelmed by our party (lots of apps & wine but it was later in the evening when it wasn't too crowded). The meal and service were good but not inspiring. Nothing particularly bad, but probably will not return for a while."

  • "We love Landini brothers and have NOTHING bad to say. It is truly one of our favorites! I wish that we could make it here once weekly. The food, as always was wonderful, the wine was delicious and the service impeccable. Totally a restaurant you must try!"

  • "I booked our Open Table reservation for 4 with a sidewalk table request given the great weather and sure enough, they held one for us even though their website said it was really "first come first served" outside dining. With a great table and lots of great conversation and people watching, Sam,our waiter, gave us the run down on specials (he was a former kitchen worker and knows the menu backwards & forwards) and was patient with some indecision on our part. With a bottle of Prosecco & very good salads cleared, the crabcakes (wonderful) and penne pasta (tops) and lobster + tuna carapaccio arrived. A delicious bottle of Montepulcianio D'Abruzzo chosen from an broad wine list did a terrific job of pulling the 4 different meals together."

  • "I met a friend for dinner at Landini Brothers this week, and selected this restaurant because of the upscale atmosphere inside. The food is consistently delicious, but it is also quite expensive compared to the other restaurants in Old Town Alexandria."

  • "I've dined at Landini's many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Variety of specials, quality of food, pace of service, great wines over a wide price range, all 5 Stars. The soft-shell crabs (3) were delicious. My guest enjoyed linguini with fresh clams along with prosciutto and melon (the melon was by far the best I've tasted this summer). Overall, yet another home run."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Alas, Landini Bros has joined the retro ranks of restaurants that place female guests next to the kitchen door in spite of seven other available tables in the room. I thought we were past that behavior in the 21st century. I was looking forward to bringing my guests from out of town to this highly touted restaurant. Never again."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "A friend and I had lunch there a few days ago and had a great time. The staff was quite friendly and attentive. The only disappointment was the food. The quality of ingredients was a bit lacking considering the price point. I would go back for coffee and dessert."

  • "an Alexandria family recommended it. Being from Chicago, am always reluctant to try Italian restaurants in southern cities, but this one lived up to its billing. Its portions weren't super-size like Maggiano's (Chicago), but who needs a double order of pasta anyways. Great pasta, great seafood, and the wine list was incredible, yet not pretentious. In other words, you could get a 45 bottle of wine that was actually good (unlike places like Morton's)"

  • "I cannot afford to eat here regularly but always enjoy it when ready for a splurge. We shared an appetizer (Fried Green Tomatoes...which were just OK), then shared a special pasta (with Lobster in a pink sauce....excellent) and both ordered an entree (Grouper and Sea Bass, I think....both were superior). We had a nice bottle of Chianti Classico (which the server recommended over a higher priced bottle). And Limoncello to end :) Overall a great dining experience...as it should be for over $200. The service was excellent...not at all pushy."

  • "We had a wonderful experience, recommended by my daughter who lived in Old Town 14 yrs. ago, apparently the food & ambience, great service has not changed since then, as we experienced a wonderful evening celebrating my granddaughter's 13th birthday as well as my birthday! we will highly recommend Landini's to others visiting the Virginia/DC area!"

  • "I live in DC, so I don't often make the trek to Old Town for dinner. This is the second time I've come to Landini Bros, and just like the first visit, I was beyond impressed. The ambiance is wonderful, and I love the rustic decor of the restaurant. The hostesses and wait staff are all extremely friendly and professional. Our waiter was able to accommodate some special requests for our dishes, and the food was so unbelievably delicious - I wanted an entire second plate of food! All in all, a great place to dine, either with family and friends or with a date. Undoubtedly my favorite King Street restaurant."

  • "We went to Landini's to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and were late arriving for our reservations, but they quickly accommodated us and were so welcoming. We were so touched to find our table had rhinestones sprinkled over it and a sweet note congratulating us on our anniversary. This was quite unexpected, but made it so much more special to be there! Our waiter, Alex was amazing and treated us like royalty with a champagne toast on him upon our arrival and then excellent personalized service throughout the evening. He is a real gem and an invaluable asset to Landini's!!! The food was incredible, the atmosphere elegant yet relaxed and friendly. The entire experience was wonderful from beginning to end and we will be back again."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our evening dinner at Landini Brothers. The entire affair for the six of us was such a great experience. The restaurant is about 200 years old and has been restored to perfection, without taking away from the historical value of the times. Service and food was outstanding. We have put Landini brothers on our list to return upon our next trip north from our home in Florida."

  • "Go to Landini's for a fine evening out to enjoy super well prepared Italian dinners. Gazpacho (hey-that's not italian) was spicy, and garnished with crab and good. Grilled Veal Chop was very thick - a treat to savor. Other veal & pasta dishes rate too. Lobster and pasta was a nice treat. Fully priced, it's a special occasion treat. King St in Old Town has scores of quality restaurants. Landini's rates a return visit"
