 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 2, 2017

Awesome food, and very friendly staff (including the owner).
It just took half an hour for them to take us to our table (is the second time it happens, in both cases we had a reservation), but the owner couldn’t care more and he apologized multiple times, plus sent us a sweat treat at the end of our meal.
Also our waiter was a little slow, but super friendly and attentive.

The food is totally worth waiting to get seated or the small issues with the service, try the dinner specials!

I will be coming back.

Bonaroti is one of our favorite restaurants. A creative Italian menu with many non-traditional dishes, there is always something new and delicious to try. The wine list is also unusual -- a very wide variety of wines without the exorbitant mark-up found at other high-end restaurants. We've never been disappointed with the food or the service.

Over the years Bonarati has consistently been a special place where you can enjoy a wonderful meal with special people. This happens because Sergio and the staff are attentive without being hovering and recognize when there is a need or question without interfering in conversation between diners. The food is incredible and the easy willingness to accommodate and suggest special requests makes it a creative pleasure to dine with them. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This meal was outstanding in every respect. It was a special dinner party that I hosted for my wife and she was very very pleased. The party was special because it was my wife's 41st Anniversary of her 39th Birthday. Years ago, my wife became concerned about broadcasting her age. Consequently, I came up with the naming of her subsequent birthdays as annual anniversaries of her 39th Birthday. Confusing for sure, because one would have to mentally compute her birthday age and would quickly give up ... much to my wife's delight. This delight was fortified by the excellent wines that were offered by Restorante Bonaroti for our cocktails. My wife and our four guests were also extremely pleased, as I was, with the absolutely superior meals we were served. I previously dropped off a special Birthday Cake for our desert. It was very nicely served by our waiter and his helper. The cake had musical candles and we all sang to my wife with her Happy Birthday Anniversary! What very very very nice service, atmosphere, wine, food and 100% attention! What else is there? Six very pleased birthday dinner celebrants! For sure ... and we are coming back ... very soon. Last note: The price was excellent! A bargain for the very very good experience we all had.

Took a friend out to celebrate her upcoming birthday. We started with cocktails and conversation. Followed by appetizers with conversation. Followed by dinner with conversation and lastly dessert with conversation. 5 hours later (could not believe how long we stayed) we ended our evening together. No way you can spend 5 hours at a restaurant, unless they make you feel comfortable and welcomed to enjoy dinner at your pace. Outstanding evening. Would highly recommend.

We loved this restaurant as soon as we walked in! You’re immediately made to feel like a regular even though it was our first time there. The family run restaurant makes you feel like family. The owner Sergio escorts everyone to their tables, and continually pops back to check on you throughout your dining experience. Our server Arnoldo was exceptional. Professional, helpful, and all done with a sense of humor. The food was wonderfully prepared, and we appreciated the extras provided.
We’ll definitely be back!!!

We had driven past this restaurant a million times but never had tried it. I was persuaded to do so by the Open Table reviews. We both enjoyed our dinners very much and the service was outstanding -- polite, professional, and attentive but not overbearing or overly familiar. It was packed on Saturday night and justifiably so.

We went to Bonaroti to celebrate my parents' 35th wedding anniversary. We have been several times before, but not in the past two years. It was evident that the owner recognized us when we walked in. The service was impeccable as always and the food was delicious. They have a wide selection of food choices that includes many nightly specials prepared by the chef. We would highly recommend Bonaroti to friends and family and will make it a point to dine there more often.

We loved our "annual" restaurant once again; we come every year on our anniversary - this was 34! We brought our best man and his wife who are very dear friends. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, everything was attentive but not hovering. The owner is always in attendance and checking in with everyone. As always, the food was delicious, the specials always a treat - fresh fish and seafood, osso bucco, lobster ravioli....so good. Wine list is very good and our raspberries with Chambord cream is our usual dessert with cappuccino - lovely dinner, and lovely company in a lovely restaurant!
