While the food was good, the wait staff is almost like watching the circus. They constantly trip all over each other and run from table to table. Our waiter was in the middle of telling us the specials, then shouted out to another table and walked away. The bread was stale, the salad was odd but the entree was good. I don’t think I will go back.

The food was pretty good but our server was rude. We were seated without menus and he seemed put off that we asked for them. He also made several other indications throughout the evening that he thought we were making absurd requests or asking stupid questions. The food was decent, so it may have been a whole different experience with a different server.

Food was excellent, as usual, and service was top notch. It is a little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. Been favorite of mine for 10 years

Had heard a lot about Bonaroti and thought it was about time to give it a try. It was an uneven experience. The food was very good. We both started with the cream of asparagus soup. It was very tasty. My wife enjoyed her Vitello Alla Florio, and I found the Linguini Frutti de Mare OK but for a special, not outstanding. There was an abundant amount of sea food but the white sauce was somewhat bland. The chocolate cake that we split was very good. It was definitely chocolaty but not overpoweringly sweet. The cappuccinos were good and stayed hot all the way through. What made the experience uneven was the service. Neither when the soup nor the entrees were served we offered ground pepper. In addition, when the dessert menu was brought out, we ordered the cappuccinos. They were served, but our server did not come back to ask us about dessert. The Maitre d' walked by our table and, seeing us judiciously sipping our caps, asked if we were interested in dessert. I asked a question about the chocolate cake. Several minutes later, out server came back with a cake to show us what it looked like.

We never felt rushed, even though the place was doing a booming business. We finished our meal around 8:30 and people were still being seated. The tables are very close together with just enough room for the wait staff to maneuver through. I felt the wine list was a bit pricey.

Never disappointed when we dine at Bonaroti. We had a variety of dishes, from veal to seafood to pasta. All were top notch. Even the picky kids enjoyed their meals. Waiter was a bit pushy but the owner made his rounds and made us feel like his special guests. Highly recommend this spot for a quiet, traditional, romantic meal. Especially enjoy the low decibel level. You can actually speak to your table mates without shouting!

A group of dear friends met for my birthday dinner at the Risrorante Bonaroti. Sergio and his staff did not disappoint. The wine, appetizers, entrees, special orders, and amoretto were absolutely nothing short of spectacular! For a special night, either with family, friends, business,or romance, Bonaroti is a must! I highly recommend it.

One of our favorite restaurants in the entire DC area. Sergio never disappoints and the fish is out of his world and this is why it is our ‘go to’ restaurant when we want a great dining experience.

We love going to Bonaroti's. The food is excellent and always fresh. The menu and specials are a little overwhelming, but all are delicious! The service is unparalleled as well. The only downside may be the outdated decor, but it honestly is more charming than anything.

We've been to the restaurant a number of times and as usual, the owner was there to greet us and seat us. The food was wonderful and the service attentive in spite of a really busy night. Would definitely go back again!

The restaurant was below its usual standard, perhaps because it was Valentine's Day and it was busy. There was a limited menu and service was indifferent. In our experience, it is best to go there on a non-holiday weeknight.

Great food and service. This place is the wrong pick for an intimate meal though. Too many people in too close quarters means lots of noise. If that's not an issue for you, they have a large wine list and a breathtaking number of daily specials. We'll be returning.

we picked this out of many options because of reviews and it certainly lived up to the reviews. Food and service were excellent and my only regret is we don't live in the area so we could enjoy many more visits.
