I have been to this restaurant numerous times, most recently for lunch in early December 2014. Had the Eggplant Parmigan both times. It compared to the Eggplant I had in New Haven, CT where I grew up. Service was excellent. Have been going to Espositos since 2008 and have never had a bad meal.

I went here because of the good reviews. My experience was very different than most I guess. The food was average and not as flavorful as I would expect from a classic Italian restaurant. Other items on the menu may have been better. The service was sufficient but nothing noteworthy or friendly. The prices were very reasonable.

I would like to say that Esposito's became one of my favorite restaurant. Not only because of the food. There's a waitress called "Darynna" she's so nice & welcoming & helpful. I would go back to this restaurant every day !!

We dined with six friends on a November Sunday evening. The gracious waiter honored our request for separate checks and provided A++ service throughout our dinner. Each dish was excellent from the pizza to the porcini special. The entrees came with a generous salad and an endless bread basket. We plan to meet here again soon.

I get a take-out pizza from Esposito's about once a month, and I've done it for years. Always easy and excellent, straight from the oven. I think I'll go back tonight.

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 Sure, its a little outdated, but it's part of the charm!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
