Have dined here for many years and always have had a wonderful dinner. Veal chop and tiramisu can not be beat. Best restaurant for anniversary or birthday.

We went to da Domenico after not having been there for about 20 years. We were delighted when we were served outstanding food with incredibly great service. We will definitely go back, and I would recommend this place to anybody who likes very good and authentic Italian cooking. And the service was excellent!

Our dinner was fantastic - I had the veal saltimbocca and my friends had the special ravioli - the dishes were expertly prepared and delicious. The service was impeccable. Plus that, the tiramisu was to die for! We try to make it to Da Domenico whenever we're in town.

This is the best Italian restaurant in Northern Virginia and one of the best in the Washington, DC area. The food is excellently prepared and the taste is spectacular! The service is excellent and always ready to accommodate your needs. With all the construction going on in Tyson’s Corner area, the restaurant is a little difficult to get to, but well worth the effort.

The veal chop that is supposed to be there specialty and the best in town was tough and fatty and was very disappointing. Things have really gone down hill there from what is used to be!

Da Domenico dinner was horrible. Spaghetti was terrible, was over done, the sauce looked muddy, very thick and not a juicy tomato sauce at all. It appeared as though the spaghetti and sauce was days old. They presented the spaghetti as a round thick ball instead of a layed out portion with a very nice sauce topping. The veal was hard to cut and not very tasty, and the caesar salad was so thick with salad dressing it wasn't very good. In a party of four, three of us did not enjoy this dining experience. There are far better Italian restaurants in McLean and Tysons so avoid Da Domenico.

Not being from the area, I was somewhat thrown by the entrance to the restaurant, which is in a strip mall that is sort of run down looking. But the entrance to the restaurant itself is fine. The dressed up appearance is a little surreal compared to the other stores. When you walk in, it's quite a surprise with colorful deep red walls, white tablecloths - it adds up to a nice restaurant, but not stuffy at all. We sat in a booth which was very nice.
The service was quite attentive. The food was very good-it was clearly made and presented with a lot of pride. I haven't had good Italian food in this area before, just chain stuff, but this is the real deal. My husband and I had seafood dishes which were exquisite. My cousins had fish and chicken, which were good-I think the scallops and lobster tail were better. The sauces did not smother and overwhelm.
Dessert was clearly homemade tiramisu, which was fantastic.
So if you want to get away from the sheer volume of glitzy, chain restaurants and the overwhelming eating at the mall experience-dine here for authentic Italian fare. If you come from an area or family where you are used to eating superior Italian food-you will be glad you ate here.

Traveling with my wife to see sights in DC. Celebrating birthday and we’re looking for a romantic, authentic small Italian restaurant. DaDomenico fit the bill. The halibut in wine sauce was perfect, very generous portion and the seafood linguini was a feast for the eyes as well as the appetite. An entire lobster tail, huge shrimp, and tons of mussels. Scallops were available but by personal preference I asked them to be omitted. Our waiter, Jose, was courteous and helpful and suggested a wonderful wine. An Italian Primitivo well worth the price. Tiramisu yo top it off and so we highly recommend DaDomenico’s to anyone in the DC or McLean area.

Took my parents for Father's Day weekend, Saturday night. My parents are from out of town, and Dad just requested "Italian." I'd been here about ten years ago, and remember it pretty fondly, but my dad was ecstatic! Ravioli was melt in your mouth; trust me, Dad is a total foodie and snob :)
Good wine list, I loved the cannoli, and my mom was happy too. Convenient, comfortable, delicious; and the service was top notch. Thanks!

The food was too salty for us, but the bigger concern for us is that the entree had small olives that weren’t pitted. One person in our party broke a tooth. I didn’t break a tooth, but I did have a sore tooth.

I saw high ratings and expected really good food, but turned out everything was just mediocre, nothing special. I’m a vegetarian so I’m limited and hard to pick. I was either going to pick the eggplant parmigiana or the potato dumpling with mozzarella, the waiter suggested the potato dumplings with mozzarella and tomato sauce, and so I picked that one. I should have went with the eggplant first. My 2 friends’ meals were mediocre too, the rockfish and chicken francese was nothing special. It was such a shame because a more neighborhood friendly Italian place could have been better than that. We also ordered the tomato mozzarella caprese and caeser salad as appetizers and they were nothing special either. I have had tomato mozzarella better at other Italian restaurants. I’m not coming back here for this price. Thank you.

We chose this restaurant for its Italian ambiance to celebrate our 47th Wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was sensational.
We will definitely return in the future ! Beni..
