On a positive note, the food was really good. We got a tomato and moz salad that was on special and homemade pasta which was very good. Our waiter however, had no personality. At some point he stopped coming to our table and so another waiter took over our table. They did not have a cocktail menu, but said they had a full bar. I ordered a lemon drop martini and I about dropped out of my chair when we got the bill. We were charged $20.00 for each cocktail. This place is good, but way over priced! We will not be back.

People at our hotel recommended we check out Landini’s, and we certainly were not disappointed! The food was wonderful, the drinks were better, and the service was second to none! We really enjoyed our evening here!

The restaurant was quiet because this was during Covid times, but the wait staff did everything they could to make the experience one of our best ever. It was the first time we had gone out to a restaurant since quarantine began, and the staff really took care with every precaution and treated us wonderfully!

This was a very nice dinner in old Town Alexandria after touring
Mt Vernon. Pablo, our server, was excellent and went out of his way to make our dinner exactly what we wanted. We tried the grilled squid appetizer but didn't love it. The squid tasted fresh but could have used a little more time on the grill. Our main dishes were very good (tortellini with marinara and chicken bolognese). The marinara has a decent spice factor so be aware if you don't like spicy. All in all a nice dinner in a quaint location with great service

We were really disappointed with the food and our overall experience here which was surprising based on the reviews and recommendation we received. The hostess at the front door was rude and the service lackluster at best. The bread they gave us at first was stale. Our pasta dishes were mediocre and the chocolate cake we had for dessert was dry. Not sure if it was just an off night for them. As frequent diners of Old Town restaurants, we won’t be returning.

My wife and I have dined a Landini Brothers for the last 4 years and we were disappointed in the level of service. The variety of items on the menu and the list of specials were very good but the wine list was basic and not a wide variety to choose from. Granted, Covid-19 restrictions make it difficult for all restaurants and help may be hard to find who are willing to work indoors. We will continue to dine at Landini Brothers with the hope that things will improve. We were glad to see that outdoor seating had been expanded with the closure of King Street.

Always a favorite neighborhood spot, Landini's is within walking distance of our home and we dine there or just partake of those great martinis at the bar, often, and are always rewarded with great specials, wonderful standby dishes such as the gazpacho with crab and avocodo chunks and attentive service.

I have been to this Lindini's several times and have had to excellent waiter. This time our waiter seemed to have no patience with the fact that we couldn't decide on the wine choice. I requested someone that knew what they served and who could suggest a good quality wine at a moderate price. She suggested an excellent wine and we were happy with it. Our main waiter after that forgot about us. It was already 8:30 so we were hungry it took him 15 minutes to come back and take our order. As if he just forgot about us. The other staff filled in by supply us with bread and water to try and make up for the slow waiter. Needless to say my tip was less then generous. for hundred dollar meal I will usually tip 30%.....For this waiter he got less than 10%.

We sat at our table for a good 15 minutes before someone came over to give us water. I believe it was the busboy that actually took our order. He only did it because not one person came over to introduce themselves or take our order and we asked him if we could order. We overheard a waiter at the next table say that there was dinner specials! We wouldn’t know because no one told us! Someone brought or food and just placed it on the table and left. No one asked if we needed anything else or how the food was. The food was just ok. We were not impressed and the creme brûlée was cold when it was brought to our table. Overpriced for the quality and service we received. Will not go back or recommend this place to anyone!! I review almost every place we eat at and this is the first time I’ve ever left a review like this.

It was my husband's birthday, and from start to finish they made it festive. Our table had silver and gold star confetti, and a lovely birthday card. The waiter was superb and attentive. And they finished with a beautiful tiramisu cake with a lit candle (on the house)> My shrimp an scallops were superb, as was my husband's salmon. Great atmosphere , also, like dining in a Tuscan villa. Very highly recommended!

Hostess wasn’t the brightest. We ask for outdoor seating and she said none was available in shade and tried to give us a table in complete sun, when there was an opportunity to sit in the shade under the tree. She did change us once we mentioned the other options. Server did not treat my friend and I the same way he treated other tables. He did not offer drink options and seemed put off by our presence while he was very hospitable and attentive to the other two tables that were seated after us. A little disappointing that we were maybe prejudged by staff for our age and dress (athleisure wear). Unfortunately the lack of service did result in a 20% tip). Food was amazing though and ridiculously affordable and a steal for the price. I love a place that makes all their pastas in house and take pride in a unique menu that sets itself apart from the typical Italian fare you see.
