Zeffirelli Ristorante Italiano
Just RightLove this local find. Good Italian food at a reasonable price. Whenever meeting friends for dinner, we go to Zeffirelli's since it is a good location central to all of of our commutes.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodWe came here for Mothers Day, and it was a great dinner. The lamb and veal were well cooked and tender. We did bring our young kids, and there were dishes for them as well; although, this is certainly not the place to bring rowdy, messy kids who can't sit through an hour-long session of fine dining. Overall, Zef's is a great local restaurant in quaint old town Herndon that reliably serves good food and wines in an intimate setting.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the veal chop, stay for elseOutstanding Italian cuisine. Good wine list. And, the veal chop is to die for. Their caesar salad has just the right amount of dressing and it's mixed well. Your lettuce isn't swimming in dressing. We've been going to Zefferellis for probably 15 years and we've never been disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous DinnerI took friends who were visiting from out of state there for dinner. The service was excellent, everyone's meal was delicious, and we were not rushed out the door when we finished. We sat and talked for about an hour after our meal. Great restaurant!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMONE OF THE VERY BESTWords cannot express just how consistently good our many experiences have been at Zeffirelli's . We are never disappointed. The owner, Geraldo and the staff make you feel as though you have just been welcomed into their own private dining room. We have never had a bad or even mediocre meal. Each dish is prepared to perfection and never over cooked or over seasoned.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery ImpressedFirst time eating at this restaurant. Very reasonably priced wine list, excellent bolognese and lasagna. Even bread and olive oil were very good. Will definitely return.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Fantastic!Food was wonderful. Only complaint is the highest corkage fee I've ever encountered - $25!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious SurpriseEverything was excellent. The price of the veal chop which was not listed on the menu turned out to be almost twice the price of any other entrees, but it was still delicious. Next time I will ask before ordering.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was phenomenal, however,The food was phenomenal, however, the service was very slow and the restaurant was not very busy. Also, they need to be properly trained when they're pouring water and serving, as they kept reaching in, even when we were in the middle eating. Not professional. I would still recommend based on the quality of the food.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the Veal Chop and WineTheir service was outstanding. I called for directions and when I did not show up when expected - they called to make sure I wasn't lost. It was really sweet.

Other than that, the menu has great selection, the food is always next to if not perfect, and very fresh and significant as to flavor, and portion size.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy do people bring children here?Another meal that could have been superb however was punctuated by someone bringing a young child that they did not control. This restaurant is not kid-friendly!
