    Villa Mozart is so wonderful I am hesitant to write how good it is for fear of it being overrun, but it is absolutely wonderful. Small, quiet (now there's a revolutionary idea), great ambiance, excellent food and outstanding service. The fixed-price weekday (Mon-Thurs) dinner menu is a bargain (a la carte avaiable too). Perfect location for a romantic dinner, a business meeting or catching up with an old friend.

    Wonderful gem of a restaurant. It is my choice when I want to take a friend for a special treat and the result never fails to delight. The service is attentive and thoughtful and the food is spectacular. The dining area is elegant yet cozy with enough space between tables to assure that conversations are kept among one's guests. I have and always will highly recommend Villa Mozart to anyone inquiring about a very special place to go for a great dinner or lunch.

    [we shared the speck as appetizer, had two kinds of pasta as a main dish (one with lobster, and the rye-ravioli) and shared the apfelstrudel for dessert. All was excellent, the apple strudel was one of the best I ever had (and I have had many). The wines were also of high quality. Service was friendly and attentive, decor was tasteful, lighting was right, music was background and just the right volume, tables are far enough apart to have private conversations - all in all we had a perfect dinner out at Villa Mozart and I would definitely go there again for a romantic dinner or special occasion.

    We met some friends for dinner and everything was perfect. From the soup, pasta, risotto, filet, and fish to the incredible strudel and chocolate mousse desserts. Our friends were particularly thrilled with the wines and how well they complimented the food. Overall, a perfect night out with fantastic food and friends! We will all be returning often.

    Four of use met for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was wonderful and most impressive was that we were not rushed. We were able to sit for hours and enjoy ourselves while receiving excellent service. As we talked and caught up, we were never interrupted by the staff asking how everything was. When we needed anything, service was quick and efficient.

    Once again I had an excellent dinner at Villa Mozart. Chef knows how to highlight the flavors of each ingredient using locally grown peaches, baby eggplant, etc that evening. Staff always warm and welcoming. Ambiance elegant and refined. Not too many places outside DC can compete with Villa Mozart's delicious food, beautifully presented, professional service and cozy ambiance!

    I sent an email to OPEN TABLE yesterday describing my dismay with this restaurant. Showed the waiter the email that was sent to me in which I was asked to show it to him. He smiled and said ok, but them commented that they didn't do OPEN TABLE. Now you tell me: was a great way to start an expensive meal?

    Food was ok. Great lobster, but so-so risotto (more al dante than I like, and not as creamy as i like). Certainly not bad, but not memorable either. I don't usually have much to say about the service, but the waiter was overwhelmed on the Tuesday that we went there. He was very busy, and forgot parts of our order. Not really attentive, and we had to flag him down several times. Not sure it was the waiters fault, as the place was obviously understaffed, but, it was the restaurants fault they didn't have enough servers. Again, the service wasn't a big deal, but the food was not as great as the last time we ate here. Not sure I would recommend this place if the food/service combo was regularly at the level we experienced.

    We had driven by Villa Mozart on many occasions, but knew nothing about it. So, we decided to try it for my birthday. Wow, what a fantastic evening. First, the service was outstanding! We were never rushed, we were checked-on frequently, and our server was a genuinely nice person who truly enjoys his work. Second, the food was delicious. The chef/owner carefully and lovingly prepared everything we ate. The menu options were interesting (i.e., not run-of-the-mill), presentation was beautiful, and most importantly everything we ate tasted was terrific! Lastly, we enjoyed the option of appetizer, meal, dessert for an extremely fair price considering the high quality of the entire experience. We will definitely return and we will bring friends!

    We went for Villa Mozart's Monday summer pasta special--basically, each couple chooses three of a dozen or so regional Italian pastas, all matched with creative, seasonal pastas. With appetizer, dessert and an excellent Chianti, it was among the best of many good meals we've had at Villa Mozart, the best Italian restaurant in Northern Virginia.

    This was our first visit to Villa Mozart and we will definitely be back! The food was wonderful and the service excellent. We were there on a Monday night which is Pasta Night. They had so many varieties of unusual pasta dishes that it was hard to choose - so their 3 pasta combination solved the problem. I had noted on Open Table that it was my husband's birthday and not only did they put a candle on his dessert, but the owner came over to wish him Happy Birthday. The restaurant is fairly small, but a wonderful place to go with friends for a great meal and good conversation.

    One of our all time favorites and again we were not disappointed. Husband had the halibut special and was cooked perfect. I had quail which was equally delish. Service was great and they always remember us. For those that comment it takes too long for food..this isn't a rush through dinner kind of place nor would you want it to be. Savor and enjoy it!

    Four of us had reservations Tuesday night (July 22). I had reservations for 7:45pm but we were running late so I called to inform the restaurant. To their credit, the hostess said being a few minutes late would be no problem. Good. We did arrive before 8pm and were seated after a few minutes wait in the small entrance. Service was very slow. It seemed to take a long time between visits by our servers and to go through the usual routine: water, wine menus, ordering drinks, dinner menus, finally getting to order our meal. We received two dinner menus and two lunch menus at first. The long bread sticks and bread took a long time to arrive as did the appetizers and, finally the entrée. Wilson F Harris

    It took a while to be helped by the sole waiter, but once the staff realized it would be a while before we could be seated, the owner offered cocktails on the house to make up for the inconvenience. Once we were finally seated, we were treated very well. The food was superb! We'd recommend this quaint little gem to anyone visiting the area!

    Celebrated our 17th anniversary with dinner at Villa Mozart. Small restaurant, family business, despite their two staff short the service was very good. Food was imaginative (hot mushroom flan with arugula salad, just right balsamic dressing). Wife had nightly special of tuna, very nicely done. My penne with lobster could have had more lobster, but the sauce was very tasty and the pasta was deliciously chewy. Recommended.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/14/2014
    Great house made pasta on Monday nights. I.E., pasta only on Mondays, no other second courses. Portions are not too large and the glass of Chianti riserva I had certainly did not taste like a 'by the glass' selection, but much better. The service was interestingly slow, perhaps they wanted to give us time to talk. The service was high quality and caring, just not around very much - and did not take a wine order after our drinks were finished. I can easily overlook this, as the entire experience was wonderful as well as the food.

    As always, our food on Friday night was delicious, well-prepared, and an interesting combination of flavors. The service was pleasant and friendly. The mood is one of relaxed elegance: The perfect place to get away from the DC-area hustle. While dinners are not inexpensive, they do not need to be $100 per person as one reviewer suggested, and the quality of the food makes the price worth while.

    I brought my girlfriend here for our anniversary, and we'll never forget it. The room sits at most a dozen tables, so it's small and feels personal -- but formal enough to be suitable for special occasions. And the food was incredible. Villa Mozart finally taught me the difference between popular, Olive-Garden style dining and real, quality Italian food. I'm very easy to please when it comes to food, so it's pretty significant if I tell you the difference is night and day. Both of us were impressed at how, even at the end of the meal, our ravioli and tortellini were extremely flavorful. The spinach dumpling special we had for an appetizer was also something to write home about.
