Mixed bag. They were having difficulty managing the pandemic situation, resulting in a long wait despite reservations. Appetizers were excellent, entrees not great. Decor is dated.
Ordered veal entrees. Did not seem of the same quality/taste as we remember. Maybe the Chef (or we) had an “off night”.
Never disappointed. Sergio is always visibly in charge, working alongside his team and taking personal interest in quality and satisfaction.
Ristorante Bonaroti consistently delivers excellent food and professional and friendly service. The Veal Chop was one of the best I ever had and the pasta con funghi and sausage ravioli with vodka sauce were delicious. It is always a pleasure to dine there.
We had dinner with friends and the atmosphere was perfect. The service was exceptional and food was amazing. The flavors were outstanding and the fish melted in your mouth. We will be back very soon.
The instruction was well-followed. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very welcoming.
Awesome! All our dishes were excellent and the service was terrific. Can't wait to go back. Far better than Pazzo.
It had been a while since we last dined here. We forgot how special the ambiance is, the excellent service and food. Great romantic spot or for a good overall dining experience.
Great restaurant always has wonderful specials so it’s not the same old food every time
Ristorante Banaroti is always the place to go if you crave excellent Italian food. Also has impeccable service. Restaurant is clean and attractive inside. Our favorite Italian restaurant in Nova. We'll be back.
Always a wonderful experience, service and food are exceptional!
We absolutely loved our dinner! The food was delicious, the service was attentive, and it was a beautiful ambiance inside. Only 3 other tables were occupied on Tuesday evening, so everyone was spread out. Even though it’s almost 40 minutes from me, we will definitely return. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent experience. Authentic food. They even had a couple of gentlemen singing in Italian for entertainment. It was a beautiful night. Highly recommend.
The food and service were excellent.
Sergio and his staff are amazing! Food was delicious.
Great authentic Italian food. Something for everyone to taste. We had Rack of Lamb, shrimp and veal. All prepared differently, yet served perfectly... Delicious
Lovely restaurant off Maple in Vienna. The decor is comforting. White tablecloths. Attentive yet not intrusive service. Best Italian in town.
Food was great, service was outstanding! Loved that the owner came by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction! There was a Gentleman singing that was a wonderful touch as people were dining, he was very good!
We have been dining here every Christmas for over a decade and it never disappoints. Creative cuisine alongside classic favorites mean we can try something new and enjoy something familiar! The quality of the meats, pastas and sauces are so obviously top notch and fresh... the meatballs fell apart and melted in our mouths- we also always enjoy the carpaccio and their exquisite wine list. The sauces are all so different on each dish and taste like they came straight from Nonna's kitchen. It's always a special experience for our family and the service and hospitality always make us feel welcome and well taken care of. Would give ten stars if it were possible!
Amazing food and impeccable service! Definitely will be returning!
Dined out in the installed tent, during COVID. The restaurant made the best of the situation and really tried very hard to be accommodating. The food was good and fresh, our waiter was kind and very attentive. The ambiance was nice and it was not cold in the tent at all despite being a chilly night. Not many people dining which is unfortunate for the restaurant, but would certainly dine with them again.
This is a wonderful, family owned restaurant that is consistently great. We usually sit in the bar area, but it was our wedding anniversary so we sat in the dining room. It was lovely and the service was spectacular. Highly recommend.
This is a lovely restaurant with wonderful people and great food! The menu is extensive and there are always specials as well. The servers are professional, and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. I had a monkfish special with risotto, and champagne sauce which was delicious! Other items had were Osso Buco, Cioppino, Veal piccata and Fettucine frutte di mare. Everything was served piping hot, the ingredients are fresh, and every dish flavorful! If you are looking for great Italian this is a place to check out!
Excellent Italian food and a nice atmosphere. On the weekends, they frequently have a wonderful opera singer who can sing in Italian, German, French and even Russian. The food and entertainment are terrific. A real gem.
Always the best Italian in the area.
I have been a customer for 20 years, always great food, homemade everything, consistent quality, white table service. THE BEST1
Amazing Italian Cuisine
Enjoy the wine, food and ambiance
Truly excellent Italian food. We started with the fried calamari, and the avocado salad, both of which were excellent and then split both the filet mignon special and gnocchi special (gnocchi with sausage ragu). The filet was very tender (better than I have had at some high-end steakhouses) and the gnocchi was terrific with a sauce that had a little kick. We were there on a Friday night when they have an opera singer who is just terrific (he can sign opera in Italian, German, Russian and Spanish).
Their outside seating at lunch was wonderful. We really enjoyed their menu choices and the service was very good.
Eder our server was most accommodating and we enjoyed our meal very much!
Excellent service, and great food, always a great experience.
We can always count on perfection at this restaurant. The service and the food are top notch.
This restaurant is truly authentic Italian. So many delicious options on the menu. We ordered the Bresaola Contadina for a cold appetizer, which was cured beef rolled with mozzarella. For entrees, we ordered the chicken special and Tortellini Casalinghi Alla Panna. Both were the perfect portion size and extremely delicious. The seasoning was perfect, and the meal did not sit heavy at all. Our server, BJ, even remembered our special request that we were celebrating our anniversary and brought out a piece of Tiramisu with a candle! He was an amazing server, not overbearing at all, very knowledgeable about the menu, and extremely polite and friendly. The price was very reasonable considering the quality of the food. The restaurant had an odd smell when we entered the door, but the ambience and lighting was nice once we were seated.
Ristorante Bonaroti is always impeccable in every way. The cocktails are extraordinary, food fabulous and wine unmatched. The service is second to none. We always have a fantastic evening there with Sergio and his staff. Looking forward to our next visit.
excellent across the board!!! The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the ambiance was beautiful with an added touch of opera singers who were perfect.
We love this place - it's our favorite Italian Restaurant in NoVa. The food is always exceptional, as is the service. Our waiter made great recommendations on wine and entrees. All the little details from the bread spreads to the aperitif were well thought out and amazing. Oh, and the biscotti! It's real Italian biscotti, just perfect. The wine prices are a little inflated, but the wine list is top notch, and the portion sizes enormous. We go back as often as we can, and highly recommend this amazing restaurant.
Wonderful food and service. The specials are always interesting as well as delicious. Just so happy this is more authentic Italian than Italian American like the chain restaurants and most of the Italian restaurants in Northern Virginia. Eccezionale e autentico !!
All of the appetizers, salads, and entrees were very well made and tasted great. It's not exceptional but very good. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. Great place for a date or just dinner with friends.
A great experience from the moment the owner/host meets you at the door to the attentive server throughout the excellent meal.
