    Dining area was quiet which was VERY nice - which made conversation easy. The waiter took our orders (4 of us) without writing them down and all came perfectly - impressive. Best of all, the food was excellent. We will definitely return.

    Yeah Ristoranti Bonaroti--I have relied on this restaurant for always-excellent lunches and dinners. Despite an extensive menu and daily specials, each dish is prepared to order and very superior. I don't know how they manage it! The cuisine is an excellent combination of flavors that always please. The staff have been with the restaurant for decades and truly professional and helpful. Sergio's expansion a few years ago to include a relaxing bar/eating area has been very successful--for socializing and in the event you don't have a reservation for the main dining room.

    Scheduled a lunch meeting at Ristorante Bonaroti knowing it would be easy to discuss business while having a great lunch. Everyone enjoyed their food - 2 people had the crab ravioli and they raved about it. One had the flounder w/spinach and said both were excellent. I had my favorite Red Snapper in parchment - when we ordered the Red Snapper had not been delivered yet so I ordered another special ravioli. A few minutes later the owner (Sergio) came to tell me the Snapper was just delivered and did I want to change my order back to my original request. Needless to say I was very happy to change and appreciate Sergio always being so attentive to his guests request.

    Ristorante Bonaroti never disappoints; instead exceeds expectations. Our meal was excellent. The special agnolotti was fantastic. My husband's chicken marsala along with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The desserts also were so delicious. My husband ordered cannoli. We both agree Bonaroti makes the best. I tried the pistachio and mascarpone torte, which is now my new favorite. The ambiance is impeccable. Sergio is so welcoming and his staff so knowledgeable. By far our favorite place to dine.

    We had appetizers, main courses and desserts. The appetizers were nice - especially the octopus. I had the osso bucco, which was disappointing. The shanls were cut relatively thin as opposed to being an entire shank and smothered in pasta sauce. Not sure they were really braised for long. Much of the fat had not dissolved. Would not order again. The pasta tasted like it was packaged. Overall a disappointing dinner.

    Went to this restaurant with high expectations seeing the rating (4.7 stars!), and having just gotten back from a trip to Italy a few months ago. Unfortunately it did not live up to our hopes. Service was mostly very good, but the food was no better than "fine" overall. I enjoyed dessert (tiramisu and cannoli), but the entrees and apps were all just OK. It has the trappings of a fine dining restaurant, but doesn't deliver where it counts, unfortunately.

    My husband took my son and I there yesterday evening for a Sunday dinner and it was outstanding. From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable. The food was authentic and absolutely delicious. My son who is 18 said “the next time I’m dating a girl I’m going to bring her here to eat.” Absolutely wonderful.

    Worth the drive from NW, DC to Vienna, VA to enjoy a truly Italian dining. experience. The food is superb, wine list abundant but not overpriced, service is attentive but not overbearing, and yes they make a great martini. Not my first visit, but I keep coming back for more. Take it from and Italian, this is a great place to enjoy Italian cuisine.

    Food is almost always excellent. Pasta appetizer and seafood pasta entree were excellent. Octopus appetizer was burnt. Tried to scrape off the black coal, but still burnt . Told the waiter but he just shrugged his shoulders. Didn't comp the burnt appetizer either. Disappointing response. Halibut special was good. Not excellent. Deserts were good. Tiramisu is one of the best. Macchiato was burnt. A little disappointing but we're willing to try again
