DaDomenico seemed authentic. The food was good but nothing outstanding for the cost. Most of the party ended up getting the specials as presented by the waiter which in all cases was priced more than most menu items. The only person getting the lasagna on the regular menu said it was good. The sauces were good, the pastas seemed authentic but not served al-dente as I would expect at higher priced restaurant. The mussels were disappointing and the sauce seemed a bit thin on flavor--i'm used to sponging the sauce with bread and it wasn't worth it. I've had better at home.
We all felt so special, we were treated with smiles and extremely courteous service. The food heavenly, my chicken Marcella so tender I thought it was veal! Our guest could not stop complementing her delicious choice of a meal! Delicious, delicious, delicious.
Food and service were excellent. Authentic Italian food. Appetizers (San Gennaro, calamari and prosciutto/mozzarella) very tasty and done well. Chicken parm was a if hit as was the ravioli and fish special. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area.
The food was amazing. Delicious and authentic. The atmosphere was quiet and enjoyable. There was also a larger group seated who were having a great time talking and laughing and it was not bothersome at all. Good restaurant for a date or for a family dinner.
The food is very good; it was authentic, the portions were good and presentation and the service was good too. It is family business that is very comfortable but nothing fancy.
I returned to this resturant after 17 years (anniversery dinner) and can honestly say noting has changed. As I remember, the food and service remains great! What I did expect some change was the inside decor and furnishings, but it has not. The place looks exactly as it did way back when and therefor looks very dated. If you can get past that, then not a bad choice for casual lunch or dinner.
Yummy. The food is excellent and the staff is very responsive. Hard drive to get to though with all the Tysons road work. Worth the hassle.
Excellent dining experience for special occasions and for hosting friends from out of town
The meal was excellent. The waiter did not rush us. Construction is a bit of a problem, hope they finish soon.
The veal dishes are sublime. You can cut the veal with a fork.
Good food and good service. Only complaint was that we told the waiter that we needed to be out by a certain time to go to a play, and he was not responsive. Kept us waiting for the check
Nice setting, good service until it was time to pay the bill. Always good food
The temperature was freezing. It was very unpleasant.
Service and food was a terrific surprise. We will return soon.
It's been about two years since we last had dinner at DaDomenico and frankly we were disappointed. The service was extremely slow and the food was average. Two years ago we had such a great experience...the manager/owner (pigtail) visiting us, violins, great food and service. A true ristorante. Our tab was nearly $300 this past Saturday and while the food was good, all things considered I will think twice about going back. I hope the evening was an anomaly.
Very busy for 6p. Mom Day Eve was also prom night. Veal Rib special and sauces/gravies were all top notch. But veal scallopini & filet mignon were less tender than normal.
I live in DC, but regularly go to DaDomenico because it is AUTHENTIC. This visit they had a special appetizer of grilled octopus served with lemon caper sauce that was fantastic. I had the frutti di mare and my dad had the house specialty veal chop...no complaints!!! We ate everything!! The service was lovely and it was quiet so we were able to talk and catch up.
A very good venue. The food was excellent, service good, prices acceptable. The atmosphere pleasant. Recommended.
Great authentic home made Italian food! Signature dishes are: broiled marinated double veal chop; and homemade pasta with shrimp, scallops, mussels and large lobster tail. Great wine, outstanding service, and reasonable prices.
Great Veal Chop
Great special Lamb Shank
