Da Domenico never disappoints. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food is always first rate, and the atmosphere can't be beat. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice Italian meal in a romantic setting.

A good Italian restaurant in Tysons. The octopus appetizer was wonderful and our entrees were also very good.

This place is a GEM ! I travel for work all over the country but I’m based in Long Island, NY and not only was this the best Italian food I’ve had outside of NY but it was also the most authentic. The service is phenomenal. Like most will recommend, the Veal Chop is amazing. Perfectly cooked and juicy as heck. They make you feel at home the moment you walk in. My girlfriend was so happy I brought her here. Extremely recommend.

This restaurant makes me feel like I'm back home in NYC back in the day when Italian food was Italian and not American Italian. Need I say more. Oh, and the bread is brought in from NY and is like Mamma used to make. One note of interest. We have a home in Portugal and eat octopus (polvo) regularly when in Portugal. Here, we have yet to find anyone who knows how to cook it like the Portuguese...until now. Tender, not rubbery and tough, grilled to perfection and the veal chop was stunning. Normally I would keep this secret to myself but please come, enjoy so they stay open. Ask for Vito or Juan and tell them Billy sent you (the guy who loves Ciopino). I won't get a kickback but the pleasure of them knowing how much we enjoy their food and service.

I judge restaurants by eating pasta carbonara. It was not on the menu however they made the dish for me and it certainly did not disappoint. My wife and I found a new Italian restaurant here in northern Virginia. The bad thing is we have lived in northern Virginia close to 30 years and I can’t believe we never had a meal here!

Fabulous restaurant. Beautiful. Attentive staff. Delicious food. With all the construction around Tyson area it's a bit tricky to get too...until you establish the route...then quite easy. The historic access has been eliminated by the construction. Definitely worth the mild degree of effort to get there

First time there and had the Veal chop which was great. Want to try the more traditional Italian dishes next time. The corkage fee I thought was high.

The outside is nondescript (it’s in a very old strip mall with a sign maker and other semiindustrial businesses, but don’t let that stop you. Great food, excellent service, and inexpensive for what you get. Definitely worth a try.

It was pretty crowded and somewhat noisy. Table was in a corner, which I normally wouldn’t like but in this case probably afforded a bit of privacy. Food was very good. Waitress was effective, if not the best “table side” manner

We enjoyed dinner mainly because it is a very pretty restaurant and lovely ambiance. Our food was good but overpriced. The service was not good. After taking our initial orders, the waiter never came back to see if we wanted another drink, to see how our food was, or anything like that. We told him at the end that we would have ordered another round of drinks had he come by sooner, and he seemed very unconcerned and unapologetic, and asked us then if we wanted another drink and we told him it was too late for that since we were about to leave. So we were not at all happy with the service.

It was Valentines Day and it was the worst service I have ever experienced. Unfriendly and unwelcoming staff. It took a long time to get menus and then we waited over 30 minutes just to get the bottle of wine we ordered. The waiter seemed bothered that we wanted coffee after our meal. We would have ordered dessert but did not want to waste more time and money. We will not return.

Not the greatest on Valentine’s Day for dinner. For our 6:15 reservation we were seated right away, albeit not in a great location. The service was polite but very slow. We ended up getting appetizers, dinner and desert along with a bottle of wine. The whole experience, and by no fault of ours, went on for 2 1/2 hours. Seemed that lots of folks in the restaurant had similar long experiences. And the prices were rather steep than the usual prices they have durning normal service.

We dined here Christmas Eve, so take that into account, but this was overall a very poor experience. Waters not refilled, ingredients mediocre, entrees took forever to come out and were lukewarm when they did, one of them turned out to be wrong, and wrong in that they’d subbed a dish double the cost for what we actually ordered. We pointed this out several times but accepted the error because we didn’t want to wait another 20 minutes for a replacement; we were charged for the more expensive dish. Food was meh and pricey for the quality. Seems like a place that must have had its heyday 20 years ago but most folks who’ve eaten at one of the similarly priced contemporary Italian places in the area will likely be disappointed.
