Diner Reviews
  • "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 often go to Landini's for lunch, but dinner was even better with more options. It also helped to have reservations on a Saturday night because we were able to make our show in DC after the wonderful dinner."

  • "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."

  • "We took my husband's boss and wife to this restaurant and they were so impressed. The food was great, the service was impeccable, and the cappuccino was one of the best I've had. I love that the building is historic and looks it, inside and out. Quick walk to the water after dinner. Thank you!"

  • "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."

  • "Chose Landinis based on recommendation of my nephew, who wanted a special dinner following his high school graduation. The food was excellent, especially the veal, good Pinot Grigio, and fantastic desserts including a special one for my nephew."

  • "I took my daughter here for her graduation lunch with our family. It was perfect. The service was excellent and the fieldstone room was beautiful and with an old world charm. The food was good. My only observation is that their pasta dishes were limited for lunch. Overall we really enjoyed it and will return."

  • "Nicely prepared, served HOT! Thank you, Landini Bros., for a nice birthday celebration! The four of us had a very enjoyable meal. Great bartender as well...the Maker's Mark Manhattans were LARGE and perfectly concocted."

  • "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"

The wine list is extensive and moderately priced. I like the dining room. Thye bar side can be a little noisy, but still OK. Service was top notch, professional and not obtrusive."

  • "We like Italian food all four of our group having lived in Germany or Rome) for many years. The crusty, warm bread was outstanding. Started with the tuna tartare with avocado, others the salad. Then had the linguini pescatore and others the vangole all were excellent. The real reason to give this restaurant very high marks was the pacing of the meal. We started with cocktails and were neither rushed to order or to finish for the appetizers. The main meal was well timed giving plenty of time for animated conversation. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. The house Chianti was very nice. Since one member of our party was having a birthday, the meal was finished with the presentation of an excellent piece of Tiramasu (with candle)"

  • "Landini Bros was once my favorite restaurant when they lived in Alexandria. The restaurant used be famous for its red sauce, but I don't think there is anything to rave about at this restaurant anymore. My family had a terrible experience. The service was slow, removed, and unkind. The waiters seemed like they were all In a hurry, except for when it came to brining out our food. The main courses were unoriginal and not fit for fine dining. The entree of fried calamari was just a giant plate of fried calamari with no sides or variety- something suitable for an Applebee's appetizer. I will say the wine was excellent, but overall I felt unwelcome and dissatisfied. I think Landini brothers is solely surviving on location and tourism. "

  • "This restaurant always has great food but the service can be very spotty. We arrived on time for our reservation and had to wait almost 30 minutes for a table. Once seated (at a table that would handle 8 and we were 3) the waiter seemed annoyed that his party would be so small. There was little expression of helpfulness, we had to ask for a wine list, and he seemed annoyed at our questions. We will come back but we hope we receive a better waiter."

  • "We had an 8:30 reservation. We walked in a few minutes early and they sat us right away. The service was quick and responsive without interrupting too much. Food was great. A very nice experience."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This is in a great area but seems like it was great 10-20 years ago. It appears as if the menu, food, and staff are holding onto the old glory and have not updated much of anything. Good wine selection help also seems nonexistent."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Unfortunately, my biggest complaint is the wait time. Arrived at 7:50pm, table was ready at 8:00pm, appetizers came out at 8:30pm and entrees came out at 9:00pm. We almost left and went to McDonalds when the food finally arrived. My wife and I were very upset. I don't know why this happened but paying close to $150 is uncalled for when your food comes out ONE HOUR later. "

  • "My wife ordered lobster tails with spaghetti while I ordered Chilean Sea Bass with rosemary, lemon and olive oil, a special"fresh catch of the day". Both dishes were terrible! The lobster portion was miniscule and the meat tough; and the dish came to the table looking as if the overcooked spaghetti had been thrown on. My sea bass was obviously a frozen filet that had a texture and taste of freezer burn. I will never be fooled again into dining at a restaurant just because it has been around for 35 years. "

  • "Food was good. We asked to be seated outside since the weather was great. The outdoor dining area was very tight, so we kept getting bumped. We didn't see our server as frequently as we would have liked, but this was probably due to our request to eat outside. We had a very pleasant meal until the table next to us changed and one diner began smoking, which blew directly towards us. We left soon after. Overall we both enjoyed our meals and dining experience."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "The food was well-prepared and the service was attentive, but the noise level--bolstered no doubt by the slate floor in the dining room in which we were seated--made it difficult to engage in conversation. We were glad the restaurant was busy, but of course this only complicated the noise issue."
