Argia's Ratings and Reviews
As always, Argia's has great Italian food - very generous portions, good (and fairly-priced) wine list, and the fact that they offer half-size plates on many items is great. Even the half-sized portions are large. A warm and fun and delicious place we come back to often.
I was expecting a little more from this place. The food (especially considering the price) was just ok. The service was incredibly slow. It took about 20 to 30 minutes to get our appetizers. It took another 45 minutes or so to get our food. It took our waiter another 25 minutes to bring our to-go dessert and pick up our credit card to pay the bill. All in all, it took over two hours to dine there on a moderately crowded Tuesday night.
This was my first visit, and obviously the restaurant is popular. Restaurant was very crowded and noisy; chairs not very comfortable. Beyond that, the food was very flavorful. Although my lamb shank was slightly dry, it tasted great. The chicken scalloppini was very good. Wine was affordable. Service was excellent. Will probably return to try more items. Monday's a good day because bottles of wine are half off on Mondays.
Argia's is like our favorite old Italian restaurants we grew up with in New Jersey, but with a wonderful upgrade in style and variety. The staff greats you like they've missed you and is willing to accommodate any whim, whether to split a few appetizers with a glass of wine or have a feast, the portions are large, always giving us a taste to take home, and the menu, unlike the places of our youth, changes nicely with the seasons to present surprises and keep things interesting. They keep us coming back.
Our waiter was helpful, cheerful, and attentive. I ordered the Italian shrimp & grits (polenta), an appetizer large enough for a meal. The shrimp was overcooked to gumminess and overall the dish was too salty. Definitely not on par with true southern shrimp & grits. Spinach salad large enough to share was fresh and the amount of dressing was minute-perfect. The gnocchi & sausage was tasty; warning: the sausage is spicy hot. The wine choices were many and of good variety. We met a friend, but it felt like a neighborhood place or dinner before the state theater. I would go again and try something that's a house specialty.
Had mussels over spaghetti. It seems the mussels were steamed separately as the broth in the spaghetti sauce had no seafood flavor. Amount of spaghetti was stingy. However, quality of mussels were top notch -- big and juicy. My husband enjoyed his spaghetti and meatballs but also felt spaghetti amount was too low.
Originally being from NY the bar for Italian food is set quite high. I made the mistake of ordering the Lasagna. It unfortunately does not compare to our home recipe. I found the tomato sauce a bit bitter for my taste as well. I'm willing to try again because the seafood looked and smelled delicious, but I'm afraid I'm not a fan of therr pasta.
Great variety of dishes and the specials are definitely worth a listen. The risotto with sea scallops was perfect. It may be hard, given how great the food is, but try to save room for dessert. Then there was the bread - WOW! We will be going back....soon and often! Parking is a challenge on Saturday night so a week night would probably be easier and quieter as well.
My wife and I returned to Argia's for the start of a date night. Our server was engaging and helpful without being overbearing, the menu and specials gave us plenty of good options to choose from, the salad and entrees were delicious, and the drinks complemented the food well. A great place to have an enjoyable dinner!
We have been going to Argias for years and really love the food and service and their house chianti is very good. We especially enjoy the mussels Argia style which are the best I've ever had (and I've had mussels all over the world). The caprese salad is excellent and especially fun when served familgia style. I always get the spaghetti and meatballs (with extra marinara sauce). Argias is a great asset to Falls Church the NoVa dining experience.
Argia's fit the bill for a quiet lunch with a very elderly relative. The tables are spaced far apart so you never feel cramped. The food is always decent and reliable and reasonably priced. I wouldn't go here for gourmet cuisine but for anything else, absolutely!
We went here for our first anniversary, as we had done our rehearsal dinner here the year before. If it was possible, it was even better the second time around. Our waitress was delightful and we really enjoyed conversing with her as she took our order. We ordered a fantastic bottle of red to start us off. The food was all fantastic - we split a salad - my wife had Chicken Marsala and I had the gnocchi. I can tell you that my maternal grandmother was an Italian immigrant and used to make gnocchi for my family growing up - it was one of my favorite memories of childhood. This gnocchi was the closet to hers I have ever had. We also had the Chocolate Mousse Cake. This is not to be missed. Lighter than any mousse we have ever had!
We have been coming to Argia's for several years and it's still a very pleasant place. We came with an elderly relative and the service could not have been better. She is very impatient and the waitress brought her soup out right away, without even being prompted! The tables are not packed in so it is easy to converse without any problem. If the food were a bit better this would be a rave. Unfortunately it is just ordinary. Large portions but nothing special. Not bad however, and on balance a very good choice for a family group or pleasant night out.
I've lived in the neighborhood for years but only just got around to trying this restaurant. The "solo" sized salad and mussels were both quite large -- I have no idea h9ow bit the "famiglia" sizes would be! The daily pasta special was simply wonderful -- it sounded good but the taste was well beyond expectations. So keep your ears open to see what the server recommends before you order! If you find the inside a bit noisy due to the somewhat echo-y walls, ask for a table outside on the lovely back patio.
Our trip to Argia's was fine. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and offered a bread basket as a starter, which was warm, fresh and very good. We had spaghetti and meatballs (very good and the highlight of the trip) and a chicken fettuccine with corn and asparagus (which was unremarkable - wouldn't recommend). We did enjoy a nice bottle of wine, a 2007 Sangiovese from Cosentino in California...it paired well with the spaghetti and served as our dessert as well.
We had a nice dinner experience here at Argia's with an old friend visiting Falls Church. The pasta was great, the service was very good. Argia's is a reliable place for dining in the City of Falls Church, has great Italian cuisine and we highly recommend it.
