Bravo! Great Italian Food in Fairfax

Stopped in on the way home from walking the battle fields of Manassas. My wife ordered one of the daily specials, her friend had pasta and I couldn't resist the wood fired pizza. The ladies, and I, enjoyed the pasta. Very delicious. The pizza was perfect. Don't get filled up on the fresh... read more

Not a fancy atmosphere, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it! One of the best Italian meals I've had. We also got 4 entrees, 2 glasses of wine and 4 desserts for $100 plus tip so it was very reasonable. I can personally recommend the pizza, ravioli, and chicken picatta. Our waiter was very kind...

Hit a lot of restaurants on this trip, but this was a high point. Prompt, friendly service and excellent food in generous quantities; good value.

The food was just ordinary. The owner exceedingly unfriendly. Wait staff was fine. This place does not deserve the rating it has. Not better than Olive Garden. Less flavor than Pomadoro. Atmosphere dreary.

This is a very good family owned Italian restaurant. Not too fancy, but very good food and a friendly staff. They serve ample portions at a good price. Their house salad has a nice touch of pickled carrots that pump it up. The soups are good and the basic dishes are always very good. I've eaten all around the menu... More

In an area of mostly overpriced, overrated chain restaurants, Esposito's is a reasonably priced family friendly breath of fresh air. The food is authentically Italian; the service is fast and friendly.The fresh baked bread is delicious and the Italian desserts are sinful! The atmosphere is nothing fancy but the food and service morecthan make up for it. Not a fan... More

Where do I start? Looking for the perfect family run Italian restaurant? This is it. This is not fancy, but some of the most excellent Italian you can eat. Enter to the hostess who seats you, who I think was the owner! Clearly she sets the tone for the staff. They are all attentive from the server to the runners.... More

The lunch menu at Esposito's offers a tastey variety of Italian dishes. Pasta, salads, pizza, meat ball sub, eggplant parm, on and on. The servers are friendly, waiting time at the table is just right for some pre lunch conversation over delicious Italian bread. It may not be Rome, but you will be whistling "Amore" when you leave. Viva Esposito's... More

One of our favorite local restaurants, great food and service. Love their pizza and spaghetti carbonara. Deck dining is also fabulous.

We have tried all of the chains and they all stink. The service here is great. The spaghetti carbonara, the chicken, the salad was all excellent. A nice atmosphere and family owned. They really outdo the Olive Garden, Romano's and Carrabbas by far.
