Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Perfect romantic meal with delicious food. We had the special heirloom tomato salad, rack of lamb, and apple strudel. Everything was truly 5 star."

  • "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!"

    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "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"

    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "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."

  • "It was the first time my husband and I tried this restaurant. From the moment we walked through the door until the time we left everything was just perfect -- seating, service, appetizer to dessert, perfection!! There is no question that we will be returning, soon we hope!! Thank you, Villa Mozart, for a lovely Friday evening."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Dinner with someone special was delightful. We had the carpaccio w/foie gras and a strawberry soup, followed by lobster rissoto and quail stuffed with sausage. One tip - leave the Escalade at home and take the small car. Parking behind the building is a challenge"

  • "Our party of six was looking for a place where we could actually carry on a conversation in a lovely environment. Villa Mozart fills,that bill. The added pluses of superb food and great service was icing on the cake."

  • "We keep coming back here because we know and appreciate wonderful, inventive, but recognizable food. The service here is totally professional meaning that the staff knows the product and performs perfectly. The wine list is good with quality at many price points. We have been coming here since it opened and they never fail to satisfy."

  • "It is not often I can find a restaurant where everything on the menu was a hit. Villa Mozart has done this every visit, and the service is great."

  • "Of the numerous restaurants in Downtown Fairfax, Villa Mozart stands out as the top Italian restaurant. The wine menu is almost exclusively Italian. The meat courses include game. The tasty pasta choices include vegetarian and fish entries. Villa Mozart offers a cozy atmosphere and a knowledgable and attentive waitstaff. Save room for for the luscious desserts!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My dear friend and I wanted a place where we could have great food and also the ability for a quiet conversation . We choose the right restaurant to have this relaxing lunch. We both ordered the lunch special. The cost is right - $20.00 for 3 courses. The food was outstanding and our service awesome. This is a go to place in Fairfax City. Try it! You won't be disappointed."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Villa Mozart has become our go to restaurant for special occasions in Fairfax VA. The quality of the meals has been outstanding on all of our visits. The wait staff is professional and doesn't appear to be subject to the turnover that you see in many restaurants. The prix fixe menu selection offers the best way to make sure that you will have an excellent dining experience."

  • "There is an Austrian/Italian influence to the cooking because of the chef's training. The portions are small with a price tag of $124 for 2 before tax (including 2 glasses of wine and the prix fixe meal--which just means pick one item from each course). The cream of asparagus soup was set off nicely with pieces of scallops. The smoked prosciutto with "speck" (bacon) and artichoke was presented in a lovely two-part dish. The rack of lamb was succulent and cooked just as I like it. The gnocchi with sausage were good but not outstanding. The wine by the glass selection is extremely limited. Although the restaurant is housed in an old house, it doesn't have a lot of character--no color on the walls and no art work--just a room. "

  • "Villa Mozart has become our special place for celebrations. This time, we were celebrating my receiving a PhD from nearby George Mason University -- an important lifetime achievement that I mention only to let you know the high regard we have for this small restaurant. "

  • "This is a favorite go to restaurant for a special dining experience. I have always left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The food is consistently outstanding and the menu reflects seasonal fare. The temperature of the food, whether hot or cold is always perfectly served by longtime wait staff - Oscar and/or Max. The tone of the restaurant makes the diner feel welcome and valued rather than just another occupant in a chair. This location is perfect for those not wanting to travel into DC. "

  • "How have I missed Villa Mozart prior to this? "Fine dining" and Fairfax don't usually go together to me, but this has changed my mind. Each course was very well prepared and flavorful, service was very attentive without being intrusive and the meal was well paced. BYO with a reasonable corkage fee allowed me to bring in something I've been aging a while, so I can't comment on the wine list. Two things to consider that were not a problem on a Wednesday night, though. The restaurant is small so when it's full it could feel close and crowded. Similarly, the parking lot in the back could fill up quickly and there isn't a lot of other convenient parking nearby. We will be back for sure."

  • "My wife and I ate at the Villa Mozart to celebrate Mothers' Day. They offered a 3 course fixed price menu. Choices were somewhat limited but we each found something to like for each course. The small restaurant was quite crowded and service was a bit uneven. We eat here occasionally and usually the service is excellent. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "They charged us for a prix-fixed menu when it was not advertised at the time of the reservation and it was way too much ($ 75) for the amount of food received! Portions were SO tiny that it was laughable though deliciously made. They take advantage of these occasions and dont give you a choice for changing a single dish in the event you do not or can not eat some of the ingredients. Very deceptioned with our Mothers Day lunch."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Villa Mozart provides an excellent dining experience -- but the cost is relatively high: more than $100/person, including one drink and one glass of wine each, including generous tip. But the presentation and food itself are near perfect."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The service was a complete disappointment! I have been to Villa Mozart many times. The food is authentic and fantastic; but this weekend the service was terrible. The server appeared preoccupied with another table, waited 15 minutes before we even got our menus, and by the time we ordered and got our food it was another 1.5 hour; significant lack of attention; he could care less... I was tempted several times to ask for another server however I was discouraged by my guests from doing so. It dampened our our mood... Not sure I will come back!"
