My wife and I love this great place and drive from Annapolis to get here. The food is just the very best, great service and most of all, a very special owner who has become a great friend over the past 20 years.
Nothing better !!!!!!!!!!!!
We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Sergio continues to offer a first rate experience from authentic, delicious food to a warm, inviting dining room to outstanding service. It is our favorite special occasion restaurant where one is treated like family.
Good food, nice atmosphere. There were a few large tables nearby to cause the noise level to rise, but we outlasted them and things quieted down. I can see this being very nice not during the Holiday times, probably less small office dinner here that caused the noise, either way, everyone was having a great time, great food, great wine list. Sergio is a one of a kind owner, hands on, stops by to see if all is going well. Our server was BJ, been there 11 years, he was great too. Certainly will be back. Thanks.
This was a wonderful new find for us. We do an annual Christmas shopping trip and look for a good restaurant to celebrate at the end of the day. The service couldn’t have been better. They let you take your time. The food was excellent.
Fabulous evening. The good was fantastic! My husband and I like to share plates and we appreciate the chef individually plating our appetizer, salad and entree! Thank you for going above and beyond. We had a bit of difficulty hearing our table discussions due to the noise level. But people were happy at our surrounding tables so people bring happy is a good excuse for noise!! We cannot wait to come back and we sure hope Victor is our server! He was fantastic!
We took a friend for his birthday to this restaurant. The service was terrible, and the food not much better.
Would not recommend.
Excellent Italian restaurant with a wide selection of pastas, fresh fish and steak. We’ve eaten here many times and it never disappoints!
Bonarati and Sergio are always great food and service. I have been there many times and hope to return many times in the future. Great for lunch but also great place to celebrate anniversaries
We go to Bonaroti about 3 times a year and its always good. We had reservations but had to wait about 20 minutes.
Worth the wait. Food is excellent. We had dessert too.
Nothing has changed about Bonaroti since you went with your parents 15 years ago except that the service was simply poor. The restaurant was still charming, comfortable, cozy and the food was very good. It actually felt like the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and the portions. Unfortunately that snappy, quick and efficient service has been replaced with slow, unorganized and less-than-charming attitude that can put a damper on an otherwise lovely dining experience. If the half full dining room was any indication, others have experienced the same issue.
Always a treat to go to Bonaroti's. Excellent seafood choices. My favorite is red snapper in parchment.
Everyone was very happy with their dinner and drinks. Have been going there for a number of years and the quality is always great. Great for friend conversations. Okay to linger and talk.
There is an old school charm to this place. The service is intentionally slow in the way that allows diners to have a relaxed and intimate experience without feeling rushed. The menu is extensive with a plethora of off-menu daily options that could suit any appetite. If you’re looking for a traditional Italian dining experience, you will not be disappointed here.
Outstanding service, extraordinary diversity of menu options, excellent flavors and preparation of appetizers and entrees. Waiter was attentive and wonderful.
Hadn't been in 20 years. Heartened that it was still there but then disappointed in the food. Pasta with 3 clams and 5 mussels shouldn't cost $26. Seems like it was left under heat lamp for awhile. All in all won't go back. There are much better ones around.
It was a wonderful experience with great food and extraordinary service.
I have been going to Bonaroti since they opened over 30 years ago. The food is fantastic, the service impeccable, and Sergio always does a great job on everything.
Finally found a 'local' Italian restaurant that is worth the drive and effort. Food is impeccable and homemade pasta 'finally'. Owner is fantastic and fun and wait staff is extremely helpful and cordial.
My wife and I dine here whenever in town and it never disappoints! Excellent fresh fish and Italian specialties!
As always, a warm welcome, and attentive staff throughout the meal making everyone feel like a long lost friend. The food was as usual wonderfully prepared with many menu options and appealing daily specials to choose from. The rack of lamb and osso bucco were exceptional, as was the tuna starter and lemoncello cake for dessert.
We have enjoyed this restaurant with family and friends for over 20 years. It is our “go to” choice for special occasions.
Our table next to entrance to private room had lots of traffic.
Outstanding food and great service. Best Italian in entire DC area. Host/owner takes pride in taking care of his guests.
Outstanding choices and flavors! Outstanding service!
Been many times and NEVER disappoints. Sergio runs a great place and if you like homemade delicious food, this is the place for you. Staff is very attentive and knowledgeable.
We went to Ristorante Bonaroti for our anniversary. The food was very good and very filling. They had so many specials which our server confidently rattled off. And they gave us a small desert in honor of our anniversary which was sweet. I would and already have recommended this to a friend.
Our dinner recently was better than ever. The service was outstanding. The selection was extraordinary.
My business partner and I had a very delicious lunch along with excellent service.
Consistently delicious food and excellent service. Have dined here many times over the years.
A family favorite and, as usual, an outstanding dinner experience. Food was delicious and flavorful exemplifying true Italian flavors. Will be returning at earliest opportunity. Love this Vienna staple
Here for our 35th anniversary. Always a special occasion that doesn't disappoint. Service a little haphazard at the beginning of our evening but still allowed for a well paced and pleasant evening. Complimentary anniversary dessert - thank you! Food on point as usual. We both ordered off the regular menu for a change rather than one of their many specials. If I had any complaint is the coffee needs to be hotter!! Luke warm just doesn't cut it at a place of this caliber!
It is a wonderful romantic setting with excellent Italian fare.
Excellent service, wonderful food and romantic atmosphere. You can never go wrong by dining here. Right in the heart of Vienna. Wonderful neighborhood gem!
Staff was Awesome! Thank you for waiting it out with us. My mom had a great Birthday lunch.
We have eaten here several times, and it is always excellent. I could probably just eat their bread with their olive or sun dried tomato spreads and be happy. We always get their stuffed eggplant appetizer, but there are so many great choices on their menu, and we have never been disappointed. Elegant ambiance without being stuffy. Italian doesn't get better than this.
Wonderful service always makes for a great dining experience
We asked for a quiet table and were seated next to a very noisy party of ten. It was difficult to carry on a normal conversation.
Very good food and excellent service We were seated at table 40 which was very quiet
We visit restaurant couple times a year. Food and service are always exceptional.
The service and ambience were very good, but the food wasn't. It was good the first time we went there, but the service wasn't. So kind of hit or miss.
Very nice place for a romantic evening. The environment is very cozy, with warm colors, decor, and lighting. The service was fantastic - my glass of water was never empty, and we never had an empty bowl of bread because the servers continuously monitored and checked up on us. The food was very good, but certainly not the best Italian food I have had. The tables are a little bit close together, so if you are handicapped or not confident on your feet, I would request a table with more room/space around for walking. Overall, I had a very nice experience at this restaurant.
