This is our “go to” restaurant! Nino and his staff go above and beyond to make you feel like family. The food is amazing and the wine selection is excellent!
I invited a friend to experience Restaurant Week (his first time!). I had never been to Osteria da Nino, so we tried it out. I enjoyed the broccoli soup (tastes like how I make it!), we both had the Salmone, and he liked the tiramisu.
However, what we were both really looking forward to on the menu was the Pistachio creme brulee (pistachios are literally his favourite!), but they were already out (we ordered it pretty early on; it was only 6:30 p.m.)? *Very disappointing.* Overall though, we still enjoyed our meal, but as an avid RW goer and promoter, this was a dessert faux pas.
Note: when I initially was waiting for my guest to arrive for the 6 p.m. reservation, as other patrons walked in, it sounded like the restaurant has some regular goers, so that was a good positive I'd like to share.
I decided to try this restaurant during during Restaurant Week. I had never been there before so I wanted to try some place new. All I can say is WOW. I now have a new favorite Italian place. The food was outstanding with generous serving sizes and obviously super fresh ingredients. The owner and wait personnel were super friendly, knowledgable, and helpful. We were a family of 4 and all of us tried different items from their menu. We all sampled each others selections and ALL items were awesome. I will say that they go very light on salt which we really appreciated because a member of our party has high blood pressure and is always concerned about consuming high levels of salt. BTW we did NOT ask them to go light on the salt. I would much prefer to add salt to our taste at the table. I would highly recommend this place and we personally intend to become one of their regular customers. Well Done Osteria da Nino!
We made a reservation to celebrate my daughter’s 21st birthday. Everything was fantastic. Plus it was Restaurant week so we were able to get 3 courses very affordably. They sent out my daughter’a cannoli dessert with happy birthday written on the plate in sauce. That was so nice! The owner even came to take pictures with my daughter. We will come back every time we are in town
Restaurant manage was extremely rude and disrespectful.
The Winter Week menu was great! I got the Rigatoni Carbonara it was really good. Our waiter did a great job considering he seemed to be the only one taking orders. I’m so glad that I got to participate in DC’s Winter Restaraunt week!
The restaurant week menu was delicious, and the service excellent
Food was great, service slightly slow, but the staff was very friendly :) Will be back to check out happy hour!
Delicious food, lovely setting, kind and attentive staff.
Delightful family owned restaurant with great sense of humor. Restaurant week special was a great deal and food was delicious.
Service could use a little improvement. Thank you!
Prix fixe in Restaurant Week: good choices, great service.
Always one of our favorite places for a nice dinner. Our server this time must have been new, thorough but slower than we are used to. But we were in no hurry so we didn't care. Hey, everybody has a learning curve when they first start, right?
The owner/host, Nino, was his usual cheerful, bustling self. How he manages to recognize people with masks on amazes me.
Great restaurant. Excellent wine selection with an extremely knowledgeable waiter who knew everything about wine.
Excellent service ( Joanna) and nicely Covid-safe spaced tables. Delicious steamed mussels, home made pasta and cannoli. Biscotti served w Santo vino like Florence. A wonderful evening!
This was a casual, weeknight dinner with two friends who are recently married, and me. We frequent Nino's on a regular basis and enjoy this neighborhood treasure! Service was friendly and professional and the food was good.
I have never been disappointed when I eat at Osteria da Nino.
Fabulous service and food!
The food was amazing and the service spectacular!!
Delicious food, extensive menu, great wine selection, attentive and personal service in a refined yet relaxed environment.
It was our first time at ODN, and we will definitely be coming back. They brought water and fresh focaccia with pesto immediately. They have a fully stocked bar and tons of wine, beer, and cocktails option. The food was amazing. We had the fried artichoke special as an appetizer and then got the Rigatoni Carbonara and the Orecchiette con Salsiccia. It all tasted great. I’ve been to a lot of Italian restaurants in the DMV area and this is now my new favorite.
Best and most authentic Italian food I’ve had stateside. We love it so much that we are regulars. Nino and his family along with the rest of the staff treat us like VIPs every time. Highly recommend if you are in the area. Guarantee you won’t be disappointed!!
The owner and wait staff couldn’t have been more attentive and pleasant to our family. The food was terrific and the drinks and wine were perfect and very reasonably priced. We will be dining here again and again.
Went for wine tasting and dinner and was not disappointed! The wines for tasting were amazing, the food was amazing and as always the service was amazing.
Great evening out for dinner. Service was solid, food was exceptional and the staff is great !
Always a wonderful time and wonderful food at Nino’s!
Always one of the best for Italian in Northern Virginia!
Perfect way to spend Christmas Eve. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.
My sister was in town, so I took her to my favorite Italian restaurant.
Warm, wonderful and inviting! Nino and his staff put on an exquisite holiday meal :)
We had our first date here. We have been coming regularly for the last 4 years. The atmosphere , food, service, value , quality are all outstanding . We attend wine dinners, have all our special occasions abs date nights here. We recommend it to all our friends and family . Enough said. Come and experience it for yourself. You’ll agree.
Very bad service and food was mediocre
Always a great experience! From the food to the service, it is excellent every time!
Nino and staff are absolutely amazing! We enjoyed a quiet dinner. Nino came to check on us and took the time to sit and have a pleasant conversation about the ristorante and a little about himself. Our server was very patient and kind allowing us to have a very enjoyable experience. We will be back!
The owner, Nino, is warm and charming. He makes each guest feel special. My mom who loves wine, really enjoys discussing wine pairings with him but he is just as convivial with my 17-year-old. The food and service is consistently excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming - what more could you want from your neighborhood restaurant?
Birthday dinner with family and close friends. Service excellent. Food wonderful. Ambiance very nice.
Even a surprise birthday dessert that was not ordered by anyone at the table - along with singing!
I got one of the specials (veal chop) and was shocked when I got the bill and saw it cost twice what most other entrees do. It was excellent and I enjoyed it, but I wish the server had mentioned the price before I ordered. Lesson learned.
Everything perfect for a great evening with friends!
Met up with long time friends. Fabulous meal! Nino was a great host! Cannot wait to come back!
