Too noisy! Ruined the evening, although the food and service was excellent. Restaurant managers must start telling loud mouthed customers to pipe down or leave.

Overall, the food was amazing! However, I felt really bad for our waiter who was an older gentleman who had over 8 tables to tend to with several patrons per table. In addition, the main course arrived after over an hour although delicious my fiancé and I were starving!

However, I would dine here again because the food was delicious.

Overall, Landini’s was an enjoyable dining experience. The food was good, but the service was a little slow; likely just our waiter as guests the arrived after us were served their meals before us. Good bread to hold us over until our meals arrived. The ambiance is good; soft music in the background to permit conversation and the wood grains and lighting was adequate to feel comfortable. Not bad, but a little more timely service will make it even better.

My wife and I are Alexandria natives, but just tried this long standing restaurant for the first time. We were very pleased. The prices are fair for the quality of food, the decor and ambiance are just right, and staff make you feel comfortable, yet elegant. If you want to make a night feel special, this is a solid choice. We will return. Portions are generous, although sides are mostly a-la-carte. Don't pass up the sautéed spinach as a side dish!! Although we sat at a table, it looks like a very respectable bar arrangement as well.

A pleasant atmosphere. A varied menu. A wine list with reasonable price/value.
Each of the four of us went different directions on the menu, and none disappointed. The service was friendly, but a bit slow (perhaps they were understaffed, which is not good). Nevertheless, we gave it 4 thumbs up because of the food quality.

I had the Scaloppine di Vitello alla Calabrese. It was great. I could cut the veal with my fork. My husband and our friend had the Scaloppa alla Parmigiana, and mentioned their veal was a little tough.

Other than that, everything was great. Really like the way the servers are attentive, but don't hover. We were there for three hours and had a wonderful time visiting with our friends. Desserts were wonderful. Wine was good. I had the Franciscan Merlot.

Been coming here for decades. The staff is always friendly. This last time however there was a large table next to mine where I was trying to have a nice romantic dinner with my best girl. The people at the other table were drunk, loud and profane. I went to take a picture of my friend and one of the women jumped into the picture and laughed as she "Photo-Bombed" the picture. When I objected one of the men at the table just stared at me waiting for me to say something so there could be a fight. Bad for all around!

We have dine here previously. Our son, with whom we were there celebrating his 50th birthday, lives in Olde Towne. I have no doubt that we and others in our family will return in the future. We have highly recommended it to our friends as well.

We adore Landini Brothers and never miss an opportunity to treat our out-of-town guests to a meal there. For some unknown reason, our most recent visit was a tad bit disappointing although overall we all enjoyed ourselves. The service was a little slow in starting. We sat for 5 minutes before being greeted which was a bit awkward. However once our server approached us, the service was as good as we always expect. The food was good, however the tomato and avocado weren't top notch as usual on the appetizer. Our guests seemed to enjoy their entrees. So overall it was good but not really a memorable meal. Won't stop us from going back. Cannot beat the location, ambiance, and selection of wine.

Overall, I was very, very disappointed in this restaurant and the ratings certainly do not match the food nor the service we received. We dined there this past Thursday and the waiter forgot to bring two of our four meals. Tables around us who arrived after we did were already eating there meals. We had to ask the waiter AGAIN about the status of our food. Additionally, when the food finally arrived, my niece pulled-out a long black hair from her pasta. The manager came out and apologized and then we had to order and wait again for another pasta dish. - and of course we had to pay for this meal and inconvenience!!!

- Water refills would be nice once in awhile too!

Additionally, my chicken dish was nothing special or unique. Going to Olive Garden instead would have been more rewarding on this special occasion. Bottom-line, we will NEVER recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

Landini's is a regular stop on our Old Town restaurant rotation. We were with friends from out-of-town (owners of several hotel properties). They were blown away by the ambiance, and were happily surprised when the waiter made off-the-menu - and off-the-specials - recommendations. This is an Old Town gem.

Gorgeous setting inside. All the waiters were super attentive and never had to wait for anything which I appreciate. They won’t even let you pour your own glass of wine from the bottle and never let your water become empty which I like!! The bread to start was amazingly fresh and delicious and warm which I loved! Our mains were pretty good not the best of the best but were good enough to keep coming back! Bravo to your wait staff they are some of the best I’ve seen.

We have been dining at Landini's for over 30 years and it never fails to impress. Landini's offers an interesting array of menu specials nightly and a nice selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. The bread on the table is the perfect starter with the house olive oil.
