The overall experience was very good. Food was tasty and good quality. And while our waiters were kind, it seemed like our section was understaffed and the wait staff were rushing to get to everyone in a timely fashion. As a guest, I felt like I didn't want to take any of their time to ask questions about the menu or the specials because they were in a hurry to get to the next table.

The two women at the host station were pleasant but the man who was there with them when we arrived was not very friendly and seemed annoyed when I said we had one more person joining our reservation. The wait service and food was good, though some items on the menu are a bit pricey. The décor is nice but the restaurant is very loud, though there WAS a table of 10 or so women right in the middle of the restaurant who were doing a lot of LOLing, so that contributed largely to the sound around us. Overall it was an ok visit.

We went for our anniversary. They were accommodating when we arrived early and took us to a nice table that had confetti hearts on it and a hand-written card, so a very nice start. They also gave us a free dessert. The waiter was actually a bit rude when I asked for more bread -- telling us "there was plenty" when what was left was two burnt ends so we were hoping to get more of the fresh middle. He never brought more but someone else did. The food was good, but not outstanding and we were shocked when we got the bill and saw we were charged $16.95 for a plate of plain penne with butter for my son. They just told us the kids meals and said they could do a half or full plate of pasta so there was nothing with pricing. We ordered the full plate but never expected, or have seen, such a high price. When we questioned the waiter he did say he would talk to the manager -- but came back a few minutes later and said there was nothing he could do and the manager never even bothered to come talk to us. Definitely think twice before taking kids here.

The restaurant is very nice and the service is excellent. Unfortunately, we were seated near the bar and couldn’t hear each other talk. This was a special birthday with our daughter, who lives out of town. We enjoyed the food and after a while the group at the bar left so we were happy.

Excellent veal, pasta, rockfish, but flounder with crab very sub-par. Disappointed in that no one seemed to care when we complained. Wish they had more competition. ...

The food is really good as is the service there was just nothing I saw on the menu that was really exciting. My salmon was perfect as were the 3 pasta dishes at the table ( but,now wow ). Don't let my 4 Star detour you as they are a 4.4 - 4.6 but just not a 5 star. We will go back and try again and see if my opinion changes.

Landini Brothers food is AMAZING and they went all out to make my parents' anniversary special with confetti on the table, a hand written card thanking them for coming, and a surprise desert. We would definitely return and would recommend to others!

My hubby & I tried to sit outside last weekend. We had a reservation. The hostess told us we could sit at a table outdoors. Then when my husband went into the restaurant to change tables 1 table away to get out of the way of the server station and chaos. The manager rudely told me to get up. When I explained to him that the hostess sat us at the table, he told me to get up. I informed him that my husband had just gone inside to see if we can sit at the table next to us that had less traffic, he ignored me then went inside to explain to my husband that some strange woman was sitting at his table when it was me.

So I got up & sat down at the open table thaty husband was trying to get with the hostess. Then another hostess (very young & clearly junior) came over to the table & told me to get up. I said to myself, “Not again!”. I explained everything to her & she rudely told me to get up anyway. I explained that I had a bad back & asked if I could sit til my husband came back. She said no & forced me to stand up next to the table only to have my husband with the hostess sit down at the same table I was already sitting at.

They are screwed up here. Service is clearly gone. We are locals & will not be returning here unfortunately. Very unprofessional here...go somewhere else as they are tons of restaurants in OT.

3 Couples having a delicious dinner, there were so many specials wish we could have seen them written out with descriptions and pricing. Ate 2nd room lower level a nice quiet space for conversation. Interior brick walls and lighting set the tone for a special evening.

We come to Landini’s every year when we’re in National Harbor for meetings. Servers were prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding, oysters, avocado asparagus salad, rock fish and sea bass mains - all were delicious. Then the tiramisu and cappuccino topped it off. We travel and eat out many times yearly, and this is one of our fav places. We’ll be back.

We've been here a number of times, although this was the first with our newborn. The staff was very accommodating for the stroller and it worked out great. The food is always amazing and the service is great. It's a great place where you can actually talk to whomever you're with without needing to yell, which is a nice change. There were several large parties, but they were in private rooms so you could barely hear them at all.

I love Landini Brothers and have been going there for nearly 30 years. When I need a special place to take friends or to go on a date, this is my go-to choice. Consistently good food, thoughtful service, incredible ambiance and a specials menu that changes. What more could a person want?

Took 2.5 hours to serve us and we didn’t get appetizers. The 185$ bottle of wine was finished when the food finally got there and that was supposed to accompany the meal. They forgot to bring the sides we ordered and also brought the wrong meal for one of the party. There were only 5 of us.

The bread came out fresh from the oven. The list of specials extensive. Started w/ an avocado stuffed with shrimp Louis and the tuna tar tar. The entrees where a bone in veal chop and veal fungi. Both were fantastic but it was the dessert that was off the hook! The lemoncello was what is probably the best restaurant dessert I’ve ever had.
