This is the third time I have eater at Ristorante Bonaroti and the first time I've been there for dinner. My meal and that of my companion were very good. The service is attentive but not intrusive. It is a lovely restaurant and precisely run.

Squash blossoms were ok....I prefer the way they've been served in the past - filled w cheese. Tuna special, monkfish special and ricotta ravioli specials were all excellent. Would be nice to have pitted olives in the dish, though, versus pits. Tiramisu and cappuccino mousse cake were delicious. We ordered coffee but it never came. It wasn't on the bill, so I think the waiter forgot. Overall, very good and we'll be back!

Great food and great service. Take clients there often and they rave about the food. Has been in the same place forever but many don’t know about it. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Good wine selections too.

Service was excellent but chicken parm and veal parm were both tough. Table next to us was so loud couldn't hear each other.

Ristorante Bonaroti never disappoints. I go on a fairly regular basis and have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. They have a great wine list as well. I would highly recommend Ristorante Bonaroti for your next evening out.

We have celebrated special occasions with Sergio and his team for 3 decades and they continue to over deliver. Very Italian, very good and very special. How many restaurants do you know that survive more than 30 years?

Excellent service, outstanding Italian homemade pasta dishes. Osso Bucco was excellent. Bread was delicious real crusty Italian along with house made focaccia. Calamari was fresh and tender. Dessert was good too! This is actually the best Italian restaurant I’ve been to in this area!

This dinner celebrated my 80th birthday and Ristorante Bonaroti, Vienna, VA came through with another very outstanding celebration for my wife and I. The anti pasta was terrific as was the rack of lamb. A trio of waiters sang happy birthday Scott.

We dined here before our Wolf Trap show, as it’s only about 10 min away and this is a jewel hidden in a small shopping center. The best Italian food I’ve had in the DMV area, at least since AVs and Pines of Rome closed. Great pasta fagioli soup and cannelloni. My husband had their special cream of asparagus soup, very fresh, and excellent veal saltimbocca. I wished he had shared more! Imported gelato for dessert was a nice finish. We will be back! Service also excellent.

Ristorante Bonaroti was the perfect choice for an intimate (10 people) birthday celebration. The 80 year old birthday boy wanted Italian cuisine. The food was traditional enough to feed his preference, yet innovative enough for the rest of us foodies! The wine list could meet anyone's needs. Given our average ages, having a quiet restaurant was unique. The only issue I had was the specials menu, which was fantastic, was too long to follow with only the waiters description.

Generally, an excellent choice for a special occasion!

We arrived Sunday for dinner before concert at Wolf Trap. The staff was very accommodating in serving us in a timely manner so that we could make the concert on time. Next visit we will plan to make it a more leisurely dinner. The half price wine menu on Sunday was a nice surprise. We will visit again.
