My Italian-American family and I dine at this restaurant at least once a month, because we think it's the closet thing you can find to the food prepared served by our grandmothers and mothers. For our dinner on 10/5 we each enjoyed an entree of fish or chicken and all were excellent. I love their salad, complete with marinated carrots.... More

We were on our honeymoon and staying in hotels, so we were splitting meals to avoid having to have left overs. We said we were splitting a meal and they still did the presentation on two separate plates for us. Even eating one meal for two, we both were very satisfied when done, so there the portions are HUGE! The... More

This is a city of Fairfax staple. You will find familiar faces of your neighbors dining there and even the mayor. Sure, its a little outdated, but it's part of the charm! The servers are excellent, and they make you feel like you at their home for a home cooked meal. The pizza is great of course, and I am... More

A restaurant in need of better management. Poor table service. Kept looking for the waitress. Tasteless bread. Mediocre salad. Only positive was my chicken, although the person next to me sent hers back because it was as tough as shoe leather. My entree came 15 minutes late because the waitress/kitchen lost the order. No apology from the management. Guess they... More

As an appetizer, the minestrone soup was perfect. Not a very big portion, and the soup was filling. For the main course, I had a sausage and pepperoni pizza. The pizza was baked on the fireside, the dough was perfectly cooked and the topping was the same. All in all: 5/5 for perfect soup and pizza.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Family owned authentic Italian food. I have never had a bad experience here. The building looks like an old pizza hut and many people have told me that they drive right by this place - and never consider going in. Don't let the looks deceive - you will experience fine dining at this... More

This is a very nice Italian restaurant, very obviously family-run (but obvious in a good way!). The food was all served quickly, refills were prompt, and everything was delicious! Definitely save room for dessert!

We went recently on a Friday night. The service was fantastic - that staff was very attention and paid attenion to every detail. Our group had the flounder, spicy shrimp&mussels dish and stuffed chicken pasta. Everyone cleaned their plate. A small dinner salad was served with each meal. Beers were ice cold and the wine paired well with the food.

My husband and I have been enjoying Espositos for 20 years. The food is consistently delicious, pasta and sauces are homemade and fabulous, fish is always tasty and well prepared and the tiramisu is out of this world yummy. The menu has all the Italian standards but also a varying selection of specials. Maria and her staff are welcoming, helpful... More
