We went there to celebrate a family special occasion. The food was great and they brought out a surprise dessert for my son, which was so sweet! The service was a bit slow at times but they were busy.

A very nice "go to" restaurant in the NoVa area. Have been here many times. The food is always good, the staff friendly and the owners are engaged with the diners.

We thoroughly enjoyed our early dinner @ Ristorante Bonaroti! The Sangiovese wine reminded me of Tuscany long ago. Wait staff is great as is the owner. The bread basket arrives w/ 2 types of tapenade, EVOO, balsamic vinegar & parmesan. Hubby loved his mussels from Maine while I found the asparagus soup divine. The Veal Chop was enormous. My Rack of Lamb was perfect. Both came w/ mashed potatoes & green beans. No room for dessert but we did order Danesi cappuccino w/ biscotti. We shall return!

Our first time visit for wife’s birthday. Went relatively early on a week night so we were only ones for a while. Ambiance is very nice and welcoming, comfortable for nice casual or dressy.
The list of specials for the night was extremely tempting and the standard menu was extensive. Wine list looked inviting but neither of us are really wine enthusiasts.
We ordered caprese to share as starter and it was both delicious and perfectly sized for us. No skimping on tomatoes and the mozzarella was plentiful and tasty.
Wife ordered chicken parmigiana and I ordered a seafood risotto. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the tomato sauce was sweet but not overly so. There seemed to be more seafood (shrimp, mussels, clams, scallops and calamari) than risotto with some spinach and a delightful moderately spicy tomato sauce.
And almost (how would that be possible) forgot the wonderful Italian bread basket with bowls of extra virgin olive oil/balsamic vinegar along with a ramekin each of diced sun dried tomatoes and of diced olives. Could have made a meal of just that.
Service was great, attentive but not overbearing. Our server was friendly and helpful and fun.
This will definitely be the first of many visits to come.

The Bonaroti’s staff was everything we needed them to be for my son’s 21st birthday! They were friendly and fun and attentive to our party of six. The food was fresh and beautiful and delicious. We hadn’t been there for years, but we won’t let it be so long until next time!

It was just ok. They definitely cater to their “regulars”, which we were not. It made it awkward. The owner was dismissive and rude to our poor server who was new.
We wanted to try something new, it was disappointing.

Always excellent selection of food and drink. It's beautiful inside and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. The seafood appetizers are a meal themselves. Good idea to share. Really delicious. Try the ossobucco at least once in your life. It's exceptional. The fish specials (blackened halibut and monkfish in parchment paper) we're exceptional. We are regulars at this restaurant. Seems like a lot of diners are repeats too. Worth a try. We'll be back.
