I was here the other night for dinner. I had the pumpkin ravioli. They were very good, The canoli for dessert were also good. The prices were fair. The restaurant was nice inside but it was very warm.

Used this restaurant to host a luncheon after my father's burial at Arlington National Cemetery. Ron was so easy to coordinate with and they have wonderful preset menus to choose from. The room can hold as many as 80 people and had a nice atmosphere and was just private enough for us. Everyone was pleased with the food and wine.... More

We recently had dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. we had the grilled shrimp and the spinach ravioli and both were delicious. Great portion sizes on both meals. The prices really reflect what you get with your meal. The service was friendly. The bathrooms needed to be attended to but there was a group of about 50 or more teenagers... More

Traveling alone on business I typically look for a non-chain mid-range restaurant that offers a quiet dining experience, great food and prompt friendly service. You'll find it all here. The salad was excellent with a homemade dressing. I ordered the pasta and found it to be excellent. The sauce was not overly spicy and was perfect for my tastes. The... More

Nice Italian restaurant near Fashion Center, Crystal City. All four of us really liked the bruschetta appetizer and pastas. Good wine selection and Tiramisu. The service was also very good.

After wandering around in Pentagon Row and not knowing which restaurant to choose we opted for Ristorante Murali and were extremely happy with our choice. The food was very good and the service excellent. Most of all we liked the leisurely yet somehow elegant atmosphere. We really felt comfortable at this restaurant and would go there again.

I had the best chicken marsala I have ever had, my husband really enjoyed his veal parm and the cannoli were fantastic.

Located in the Pentagon Row area, this gem of a restaurant is my favorite place for business meals (as well as just eating out). The international staff is wine-knowledgeable, food-knowledgeable, and most of all service-knowledgeable! They know exactly when to help and when to leave you alone. Very attentive at the right times. Food is also terrific. The cioppino is... More

This is the third time we have eaten at Ristorante Murali, twice five years ago and last night. All three times the food has been wonderful, the service outstanding and the prices good.

It was my first meal after the Marine Corp Marathon and I couldn't have been more satisfied. We had the lamb sausage and crab ravioli with the spinach and the arugula salads. Everyhing was well done. It was quiet (Sunday night at 5pm) so we had the servers' nearly undivided attention.
