I was in the area with friends to
celebrate my birthday for with weekend! We decided we wanted a good Italian restaurant and the is exactly what we found! The decor was a little dated however the food and wine made up for the decor! We sat in the Michealangelo room where there was another large party...they were a little loud however we simply enjoyed watching them have a great time! The food was excellent from the appetizer to the mixed berry dessert! We will add this to our list of favorite "local" Italian ristorante!"

I reserved for four for a birthday
celebration ... the menu was exceptional, all dishes were prepared perfectly. The owner visited us no fewer than 3 times during the evening to check on our satisfaction. The wine list was extensive and had reasonably priced Italian whites and reds ... each special was better than the last. Service was outstanding, from the coat-check to the table service, and warmth was present throughout the evening. Thank you Ristorante Bonaroti."

A great place for great food and
equally as great service."

First husband was Italian, learned
what great Italian food was...this is not it. Portions were small, veal was overcooked, manicotti was heavy. This restaurant was rated one of the the top 3 Italian restaurants in NoVa. I was very disappointed."

The ability of our server to
recite the extensive special menu selections from memory was particularly impressive. The food and service was outstanding and the personal attention of Sergio, demonstrated by stopping at our table as well as complimentary dessert and after dinner drinks, made for a memorable 49th wedding anniversary."

This was our first time at
Bonaroti's despite living in the Vienna area for many years. It ended up being a wonderful place to celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. Sergio, the owner, is delightful and meets you at the door with a smile. The wine list is extensive, the food choices are excellent. After learning it was my husband's birthday, the waiters sang him Happy Birthday. They all had very good voices. Service was great. You should definitely try the restaurant."

We went Valentines Day Saturday
and it was very nice. Food and service was good. They had a special menu to order from which was a little pricy but it was a holiday. Overall, it was all very good."

Very nice place to go for a
romantic evening out. Just a bit pricey to eat there often, special occasion place only. Food is delicious. Easy to relax and enjoy dinner."

We had not been her for a while
and forgot how good it is! Everything was excellent, I strayed from my normal entrée and tried the veal ravioli special which was excellent. The avocado salad was beyond compare - it was caprese style with avocados and should be a permanent addition to the menu, yummy!"
Dined on 2/7/2014
Every time we dine at Bonaroti's
we wonder why we don't go there more often. We have never had anything but a fantastic meal. The staff is great . The menu is extensive as well as the specials. If you haven't been you are missing a great place. It's great for a business lunch too!"
Dined on 1/31/2014
The food, as usual, was excellent.
The wait staff is very welcoming and warm, but one of our servers wouldn't look at us when he read the specials; he looked rather disinterested. His failure to make eye contact also made it difficult to understand his heavy accent."
Dined on 1/26/2014
Top notch service and food. You
always feel welcome."
Dined on 1/25/2014
Elegant dining experience. From
the time you are seated the staff is completely, yet unobtrusively attentive to everything 'customary upscale dining'. The food is superior all across the menu---there are still dishes I want to try, but they do everything extremely well with several options each for pasta, fish, chicken, veal, etc. The prices are on the high end, which really makes it the perfect place for special occasions."
Dined on 1/25/2014
The food is fantastic, the
ambiance is intimate, and Sergio runs it to perfection. I had the Veal Lasagna and it was delicious, paired with a selected Chianti once again we had a tremendous meal. Usually utilize this restaurant for special occasions. This time it was for a Thank You to friends of ours. This was their first experience and they could not get over how good the food was. The service (waiter) seemed a bit overwhelmed and forgetful, but Sergio stepped in and helped make sure everything was spot on."
Dined on 1/18/2014
We've been here many times and
several of the staff recognized us. We have always enjoyed our dining. This time was very similar, but could have used a bit more attention from our server. We were seated in the bar area to the left as you enter the restaurant. We actually enjoyed the smaller room as it was quieter. The server could have been a bit more attentive, but I wonder if his lack of availability had to do with the fact that we were in the bar area and he perhaps had tables in another area. We'll come back, but may resist if asked to sit in the bar area..."

Our Son recieved his first Job
Offer out of College and we went to celbrate. The ambieance, food and service was out of this world. This is a gem a place for a romantic dinner or what ever wish I could go more often than I have in the past."
Dined on 1/17/2014
I took my parents here for
Christmas Eve dinner. Perfect spot for a special occasion dinner. This isn't a high end, farm to table five star spot. But for old school Italian it was perfect. I felt like I was back home in NY. The food is great, a bit of a heavy hand with the salt is my only complaint."
Dined on 12/24/2013
My wife took me to this restaurant
to celebrate my birthday. This was our 4th trip to Bonaroti's and every time has been a special occasion and we've always had great food and great service. However, this time was extraordinary. The service was wonderful from the beginning. The ambience was perfect. The appetizers, main course, and wine were all perfect. We were there for nearly 3 hours - just enjoying the dinner and drinks and at no point did we feel rushed or pressured to leave. The restaurant and staff all very classy. This is the place to go to enjoy a special night out."

We just moved to Vienna from DC
and are still feeling out the restaurant scene in the area. I think I have seriously found one of my favorite places in the WHOLE metro area. The food was amazing and the service is the best I have had in a long time. I can't wait to come back and try something else...unless the lamb ravioli is on special again. I'm not a big pasta guy, but that seriously changed my life!"
Dined on 1/3/2014
Bonaroti is always amazing, the
staff is amazing, the food is amazing. Besides the food, we really love the service. Everyone makes you feel at home, your never rushed. They give you time to settle in and actually enjoy your meal. Truly a GREAT restaurant!"

This is our traditional
anniversary dinner and it seems to get better each year. Great atmosphere, outstanding service, and I would highly recommend if you are looking for good Italian cuisine."
Dined on 12/28/2013
As a Celiac it is often hard to
find good tasting food as many restaurants simply give you boiled vegetables and a plain piece of meat. Not so Bonarotis! I had Chicken Michelangelo as it was wonderful. Chicken with artichokes, bell peppers, cheese and served in a wine sauce. The serving size was large so I had enough to take home for dinner! I highly recommend this restaurant."
Dined on 12/27/2013
We had Christmas dinner at
Bonaroti's continuing a 3 year tradition. The food and service are reliable and this is one our "go-to" restaurants. Highly recommended!"
Dined on 12/25/2013
We used to go to to Bonaroti and
for two occasions, their food and service was great. This time we were a big group and celebrated Christmas dinner. They must have a new chef and new staff because the food was too salty, meager and had no presentability. The plates of food were like those from a cafeteria lineup. It was embarrassing because I recommended the place to my group and they were not happy."
Dined on 12/24/2013
We had another excellent dining
experience at Bonaroti. The service and food are excellent as is the ambience and Bonaroti boasts a first-rate wine list that includes superb choices from Italy. We heartily recommend Bonaroti."
Dined on 12/18/2013
The food was delicious, the
service attentive, atmosphere perfect for quiet conversation . The tab a bit high for lunch so I'd recommend this for special occasions, whether lunch or dinner. My friend and I had a delightful time enjoying each other's company while feasting on delicious food at a relaxed pace. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service ."
Dined on 12/13/2013
Old school, formal atmosphere,
charming. Food was surprisingly great, plus delicious bread served with olive oil, sun dried tomato spread & olive spread. With only drinks, salad & entrees meal lasted 2.5 hours -- not really by choice. Great if you want to make a night out of it!"
Dined on 12/7/2013
They could not have been more
serviceable and delightful. The meals were splendidly delicious! We all had a great, fun time. Recommended highly!"

Very good food and service. It's a
little tight getting in and out but we were comfortable at our seats."

Bonaroti always delivers on a
great dining experience - civilized, exquisite service, and excellent food. This close to home special restaurant is #1 on our list of go to places."

Home of the redskins, Gibbs used
to bring his prospective players, seen many players dining here. Lot of dishes named after them, like the spaghetti Cooley I had again, outstanding, bread, wine fantastic , menu is huge, with daily specials read aloud . Been going here since it opened around 1982, that should speak for itself, especially since I'm in leesburg. Sergio the owner, is always on hand, usually yelling at servers as he insists on perfection. If he meets you once, he remembers you forever, it's amazing. The food is always good . Wife had rib eye in a cream and rose sauce that was to die for. The flavors the chefs deliver is amazing. Prices are fair, think my dish was $21 , wife's steak was $35 , but worth it."

Had the osso bucco, girlfriend had
pasta, both of us were immensely satisfied. Will definitely be returning"

I love this restaurant. Beautiful
decor, good food, and great service. The bread with olive and tomato spreads brought prior to ordering were delicious!l Lots of specials, and the cappuccino and tiramisu were wonderful as well."
Dined on 11/29/2013
Unless you are looking for it, you
will likely drive by without noticing this long-standing neighborhood gem, camouflaged by the shops that surround it. That would be your loss. Once inside, the setting is quaint, the Italian fare a bit eclectic (but well presented and delicious), the service staff know the menu and daily specials quite well, and you certainly do not feel rushed. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely return."
Dined on 11/29/2013
I went there for dinner with my
family on my birthday and it wqas a great place to celebrate. The ambiance, food selections, and wine were amazing. I have never been in a restaurant with so many nightly specials along with the regular menui selection. The seafood and pasts dishes were so good. The restaurant has been there since 1982 and now I know why - because it is truly a neighborhood gem!"
Dined on 11/23/2013
Always a "go to" for local dining
on special occasions. Food is consistent and prepared to order. Innovative dishes. Sergio always makes you feel welcomed even if you have not visited for awhile"
Dined on 11/19/2013
The service and food were both
very good. The decor is very tranditional but elegant. A little on the expensive side, but for once in a while, it is good."
Dined on 11/15/2013
I went into this restaurant
wanting to like it more than I did; just average Italian-American food. I think the menu is overly ambitious personally. Par it down and concentrate on just a few better prepared items. Industrial red sauce that is used in all the red sauce dishes. It tastes canned or prepared and not "fatto in casa".The food is average, but just misses the mark of being good to very good. Zucchini flowers were nicely fried, but put on top of that red sauce with mushrooms which were unnecessary. Very well prepared monkfish but again...that red sauce. The pasta needs to be more al dente. Nothing was bad, but nothing was good or special either. The waiters were very attentive and the service is good. I wish the food were better."
Dined on 11/3/2013
Had dinner with friends , all were
first timers and really enjoyed the food, service and ambience. We have never been disappointed."

I have wanted to come to this
restaurant for some time now. We walked in and thought wow, this is going to be great .The place was so beautiful, waiters in tuxs & lovely formal place settings. Our waiter was very attentive & friendly. But, our food was so disappointing, mediocre at best. Tasteless Veal Parmesan, one of the people in our party ordered one of the veal specials & had to send it back due to the fact it was like rubber & dry with no sauce. Two other veal dishes were just ok. I was so disappointed I wanted so much to have a good experience here."
