outstanding had the short rib special, only thing i'd recommend is when you're going to have 14+ specials, should probably provide either an insert to the menu listing the specials or a separate menu encompassing all of them. trying to remember that many is difficult, especially if you show up half in the bag already.

Landini Brothers is our favorite restaurant always where we can be guaranteed perfection in every way. Last night was no exception. It was our 52nd wedding anniversary, and we always choose Landini's when we're in town.

When we arrived, the table we requested was ready and decorated for our celebration. They also had a hand-written anniversary card waiting for us. The entire wait staff is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

The chef never ceases to amaze us with seasonal specials which are unique and flavorful. We had the pasta special which was amazing, the salad of peaches and papaya which was very sweet and a surprise dessert for our anniversary.

We always leave happy. The outside dining has been expanded and is beautiful. It's great to watch King Street come alive again in Alexandria. You will not be disappointed.

Sumptuous menu in a delightful setting made the evening enjoyable. The only suggestion we have relates to the serving staff; they are understaffed, and our waiter appeared to be responsible for the entire room. He was overwhelmed, dropped the ball on a request for a glass of ice (for my wife's wine), and failed to provide bread as we waited for our appetizers. The bread was eventually delivered by another staffer.

The bartender (male) was really bothered that the hostess sat us (two people) at a table for three across from the bar. He came and asked us to move to another table for two near the entrance. It wasn’t cool, and I didn’t like being moved to a smaller table!

If the bartender has control of the tables across the bar and who sits where, he should have coordinated with the hostess before seating guests!

The food is always high quality at Landini Brothers. And the waiters are of exceptional customer service. It’s just that one bartender that seemed like a hawk about his tables. I understand he wants to maximize his earnings by seating all the tables and all the chairs.

The food was outstanding! My wife and I each had the seafood pasta and were pleasantly surprised by the abundance of seafood we were served. One of my daughters had veal in a light alfredo sauce ,,, also very good and plentiful. My other daughter had a simple alfredo dish which again tasted good, but was certainly one of the dishes that offset the bountiful seafood dish.

Our server epitomized what you expect at an upscale Italian restaurant!

Our only complaints was that it was early (5:30 reservation) on weekday evening ... and we were seated near a larger group who were quite loud. Also, they demanded much more from the wait staff. Since the restaurant was relatively empty, they could have separated us a little more ... and maybe assigned different wait teams. That said, the food was excellent and when the staff engaged with us they were very professional and attentive. We will go back, and we will recommend Landini Brothers to others!

Love the restaurant and food. Very disappointed they didn’t honor our request - weeks in advance - for a private room for 8 people. I’ve rented private rooms here many times. We reserved one weeks in advance through open table and when we showed up they say they don’t pay attention to open table special requests. We had a great meal because the food is amazing but we spent half of what we would have if we had the private room we asked for. The hostess was so arrogant and just sluffed it off. Bummer because I love this place usually.

Landini Brothers
Responded on June 10, 2021

We apologize that we did not have a private room available for you this past Monday. It is important to note that simply because you write in your reservation that you made online "private room at top of stairs" does not mean you have reserved a private dining space with us. I trust you are aware that in order to reserve a private space it merits a phone call at the very least; given you conveyed to my staff that you'll be firing your assistant because she didn't know how to make a reservation.

COVID blues? Kitchen lost our order, and the servers were too neglectful to notice we hadn't been served - actually came by to ask how we were doing after we had been waiting for more than 45 minutes. When it did arrive, it wasn't hot. Manager was very apologetic, and comped our entrees, which was gracious, but the inattentive service was not forgiveable. No, don't go.

I have been to Landini Brothers many times. I have always been very happy and pleased with the experience. Today was a onetime disappointing experience. Many things went wrong. The service was slow and inattentive. We had to reorder a couple of times. The side dishes did not arrive until reordered and after the meal was over. I love your restaurant, I will return but, I was disappointed today.

I went to Landini Bros the first weekend that they removed the COVID restrictions. The food was great, though some entrees were over-priced ($40 for softshell crab, so I didn't get it). I was not comfortable with how crowded the seating was (a row of 2-person tables against the wall). The waiter's service was indifferent at best.
