Great meal and service. A family and friends dinner that was spaced very nicely by our waiter.
All five of us had great meals. The meals ordered were the salmon, shrimp scampi, and coupleother meals I can’t remember..But, our whole party of five was happy with their meals. The staff was attentive and special requests for food were honored quietly and professionally. For example, I had gelato for dessert and asked for some berries on top. The gelato came just as requested. Zefferillies staff really shines. The servers are so attentive to every detail, but unobtrusive. All in all, we always enjoy Zefferellis.
We fully enjoyed our dinner. We went there based on good reviews and my girlfriend's love of Italian food. It was her birthday. The staff was very attentive. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was quiet and enjoyable. The pricing was excellent. We will return.
The staff and manager were all very friendly and accommodating. The location is very convenient in town, parking was easy on street, the dining room is very nicely done. Excellent wine list.
Great as usual. I stop in every time I fly into Dulles. Shrimp scampi and a super tuscan was just what I needed. Service is exceptional.
This is my second visit and there will be more. Service is very good and the food is great. They do creative and delicious creations with fish. The wine list is quite good. The dinner is always an event, this is not just a meal, it is an experience.
Will be back soon. Without our kids :)
My wife and I have been here numerous times and I have always left happy with the service and quality of the dishes. This time I left let down. My salad look like it came from a fast food restaurant and my main course was underwhelming. The service was very slow for a place that was only 50% occupied. We have had great meals in the past so I will be back to give it another try.
Awesome as always. Awesome as always. Stating it twice since it requires at least 50 characters but saying it twice is also appropriate as a review.
My wife and I ate here for our anniversary. We were long time patrons of Da Dominicos in Tysons because that was our go to romantic place to eat early in our marriage. Zeffirelli's is similar in their semi-formal seating and very romantic setting. The service was polite and solid, but nothing over the top. My wife had their 4-cheese ravioli with a switch-up to their marinara instead of the pesto sauce as listed on the menu. She finished her meal way before I came close to finishing mine. I had their famous veal chop.
The Veal Chop.... hmmm. I have to first throw out the caveat that as stated we are diners of Da Daminicos from way back in the mid '80s. I compare them to DD because the two restaurants are related and they now use the same recipe for their veal chop or it is really-really close. Straight up... I don't like the newer recipe. The chop is beautiful - cooked to a medium and a healthy size cut of meat. It is extremely tender. I don't like the way it is seasoned nor do I like it's accompanied sauce. Again, I am biased. The veal chop from DD back in the 80s and 90s was really to die for. Anyone that ate there then knows exactly what I am talking about. The veal chop from the old DD was crispy from the broiler and seasoned perfectly to just melt in your mouth. i have NO IDEA why someone changed to the new recipe. The price is the same... the portion is the same... but the flavor and taste is no where close and both DD and Ziffs.
We will go back there again and try some of their other dishes. Like I said my wife really liked her meal, but I won't ever spend $55 on a veal chop that is no where close to the GREAT veal chop that they used to serve and Da Daminicos.... I wished they had never changed it because it was worth $100 the old way.
It was my first time to Zeffirelli's. I had heard so many good things about the restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Very good Italian food with generous potion. All four of us were happy with our meal.
As always, Zeffirelli's food and wine selections were exceptional.
Food was excellent. We have been going to Zeffirelli's for over 20 years. It is always wonderful.
It was an interesting place with old pictures of Herndon done up tastefully. The service was great, the lobster bisque and pasta with shrimp we ordered was yum. However, we ordered one of the specials of the day a fish ( cod I think) with crab meat and that was ok for a 35$ dish.
Zeffirelli's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Food and service are always excellent.
Awesome meal and atmosphere
The service and food were outstanding! Nice selection of wine!
Great meal at a local gem. A little in the pricey side but every bite was high quality and delicious. Will definitely go again to try more menu items.
We enjoy this restaurant for a fairly quiet dinner with dishes that are more varied than we prepare at home. The choice of wines is good. The service very good. This is a restaurant for adults.
You can't go wrong at Zeffirelli's. Everything is always wonderful.
Veal chops are extraordinary but should come with more than a couple of veggies or at least a salad at the price point.
We enjoyed the meal, and the service
Excellent meal. One of the best Italian restaurants in Vancouver.
Had a great time!
As on previous visits, service was impeccable, and the food was excellent. The veal chop is the best I've had anywhere, across the US and in Europe!
Food was prepared well, but the restaurant was empty for lunch on a Wednesday.
Very good old neighborhood Italian restaurant in Herndon. Excellent pasta dishes and the veal chop is the finest I have ever found. The chop is pricey but worth it!
Disappointed with this restaurant. The food was average, the ambiance was lacking and I had put in my special requests that it was my husband's birthday and they did nothing to acknowledge the occasion. We will not be returning.
This restaurant is a lovely old Italian venue. The food was excellent and the service very accommodating. We would absolutely recommend it to others and will return if we are in Herndon, VA again.
Food and service were excellent. Every single thing from drinks to dessert were exceptionally tasty. My only comment on ambience was it was so cold in there you could hang meat. LOL. But the servers were very attentive. We are from out of town and we are used to excellent food and great service and we got both.
the service was excellent and the food was very well prepared and tasty . very refined and comfortable
Great Italian food in the suburbs -- a real find. Service as top-notch -- old world, not the rushed service that you find so often today.
Food was very good. Service was very responsive without being too attentive. Menu could have been more extensive, but otherwise adequate. The bread in the bread basket that arrived immediately was also very good. Location in the historic section of Herndon, Va. was nicely situated, and parking was convenient.
This has been a long time favorite of mine and It will not disappoint you. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing authentic Italian restaurant that offers a wonderful dinning experience.
You want old school Italian...this is the place. Reminds me of Brooklyn, NY days.
Zeffirelli's was exactly what you would hope and expect. A classy old-style Italian ambiance with well executed, well presented dishes. The service was attentive without being cloying. The evening was a pleasant no-fuss experience of relaxed dining with no unwelcome surprises.
We took our mothers here after taking the to a show at the Kennedy Center as both really enjoy Italian food. All the reviews we read give us the impression this was a good choice. The restaurant itself feels cramped, there was too many tables which makes it difficult to navigate with nudging someone in their chair. I can't imagine how the staff deal with it. Which leads me to the actual staffing. We saw 3 maybe 4 staff on the floor which explains why the service was so slow. There was a complete lack of attention to details, 3 people in out group didn't have wine but the glasses were left on the table. We ordered half portions of pasta dishes to try along with our main courses which came out after we had to remind the waiter.
This wasn't an over all experience I will repeat, it was ok but nothing about it neither the food nor the service said I want to come back. Maybe it was an off night for them but in this market you can't have off nights.
Excellent evening out. Well worth giving this place a try if you are in the area. The tables are a little bit too close together for privacy, but overall a very nice place with great staff.
Zeffirelli's never disappoints!
This is used to be a favorite spot for us. We arrived Saturday evening and were seated wedged in between several large boisterous groups. The dining room is small and if appears the restaurants has squeezed in additional tables and chairs. We waited for almost 15 minutes for the server to come and take our drink order. We waited equally as long for the same grumpy server to come take our food order. If the restaurant wants larger groups they should hire additional wait staff. In truth the ambience here has been lost.
