    ODN is hands down the best Italian food in the DC area. Love this restaurant. It is somewhere you can go for a romantic night out, a family dinner, or get together with friends, and it is perfect for each. The food is absolutely to die for. We have never had a bad bite of food here.

    The service was excellent from the moment we arrived and neither the food, nor the bill disappointed either. Highlights: our wine was opened upon our arrival in order to have breathed sufficiently by the time our first course arrived; the wine list was very extensive and included varieties from all the major Italian regions; all four of us enjoyed all three of the courses we were served, from carpaccio and a delicious roasted beet antipasto to various pasta and meat seconds and followed by classic Italian desserts with twists from Da Nino. A final limoncello after dessert, together with a chef with owner Nino, sealed the deal. We are delighted to have found this local Arlington treasure.

    We have gone to this restaurant several times, often for their enjoyable wine dinners and more recently for Restaurant Week. The food is always good, the staff is very helpful, and the owner is engaging and clearly loves running the restaurant. We will be back often, for food and for wine-related events.

    Went to Osteria da Nino for Winter Restaurant Week for the first time. The service we experienced was excellent, but the food left a lot to be desired. The chicken in the chicken picatta was rubbery, and the arancini needed more sauce. Additionally, the tiramisu was incredibly watery. We went in with high hopes for the local Italian spot; we may give it another shot in the future to see if this was just a one time blip.

    Love Osteria da Nino. Always warmly welcomed. Very nice setting. Surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening to the point that our server was not available on a couple of occasions. . .or the kitchen could not keep up. Two food malfunctions: the broccoli soup was far too salty; the chicken piccata was made with a pre-frozen, pre-flattened breast like one would find in Restaurant Depot. On the other hand, the rigatoni carbonara was outstanding.

    Nino had the Roman artichokes as a special. This is one of my favorite foods in the world. I tried the Toscana steak for the first time. Initially I thought it was very good, but not great. Then I dipped the steak in the Toscana sauce. Excellent! My buddy had the veal chop. He said it was so big he would probably take half home, but he wound up eating every bite.

    What a wonderful experience! We thought it would be a madhouse on New Year's Eve, but although the restaurant was full, the service was fantastic. Our meals were delicious and perfectly cooked. We have eaten here many times and enjoyed it every time, but the four of us agreed this was maybe the best experience we've had at Osteria da Nino. Special mention to Ramon, our primary server. He was relatively new, but he already was totally familiar with the menu and gave outstanding recommendations. He is an incredible asset.

    We were very pleased with not only the food but the exceptional care abd service delivered to our party of 4. Two arrived early for our 6:15 reservation and began to seat at the bar to take advantage of the happy hour prices. The manager, realizing that we would require a table for the dinner reservation and that we had a service dog, sat the two at a table l. We didn't have to move and they gave the happy hour prices. The food was absolutely delicious-raw oysters so plump and fresh! Our wait staff were friendly and expert. Great place, cant wait for another chance to dine there.

    Main entrees were very good. HUGE selection of wines by the bottle which was nice to see. Owner seats most tables, and is very pleasant. Staff needs a course in basic Italian cuisine though: didn't know what Fra Diavolo is or if the chef could make it since it wasn't a menu item. Very nicely decorated - parking is just a pain. In very cold temps, it's not an ideal location for eating.

    Wonderful experience, loved the proprietor, very gregarious and made a wonderful wine recommendation. Nice place, not too quiet, not too loud, which is nice when you actually want to converse with the other members in your party. Food was good, especially liked the dried beef carpaccio and the chicken piccata, it was very tender and well flavored, just wish we got the extra capers we asked for a couple of times. Definitely will be back!
