About Our Restaurant-----Previously known as Vespucci’s Fine Italian Dining, our restaurant has merged with its parent business Cooking & Company Catering under the same management but with some new dishes. Branching out from its Mediterranean focus, Cooking and Company now also serves Persian food and is open for lunch, where Persian delicacies such as Zaban, the Persian Hot dog and Kabobs can be enjoyed. Our new menu also has options for our celiac, vegetarian and vegan customers. Our food is free from “MSG” and other additives and is made to order. We believe food should give you energy, not bring you down and additives like “MSG” can cause drowsiness or headaches. Eating bad food is a horrible shame and Cooking & Company is one hundred percent dedicated to offering healthy eating. All of our dishes are our favorite dishes and anything you choose is sure to be delicious and healthy.-----Our goals with our new menu:► To Select and Serve favorite dishes from 21 countries around the Mediterranean Sea!► To use fresh ingredients, following healthy recipes, to create a unique menu!► To provide a full bar with top shelf distilled alcoholic beverages, a premium wine list and popular beers.► To Enable customers to preview and order from eighty pages of catering menu with over 40% to 60% cost savings when they choose to order for off premise catering services.► To create package menus for larger events, saving the customer time and money in food and beverages.► To provide a cozy atmosphere in our dining room, bar and outdoor patio any season and any time of the year the weather permits.►To use special symbols to identify the menu items!------------------------------We assure you that you will want to share the Cooking and Company Restaurant experience with your family and friends and join us for your all special occasions, where we will strive to make it an unforgettable dining experience.

Great Food

Went here for dinner after a long day on the motorcycle. The place was empty so we had our pick of where to sit. We chose to sit outside as the weather was quite nice. We had the eggplant parmigiana to start. It was quite tasty and the eggplant was done very well. For entrees we both settled on... read more

So, my now wife and I just moved to the area and wanted to try out a local restaurant. We actually went to this restaurant the night before our wedding. I had made a reservation in advance and told them we were getting married the next day. We certainly didn't expect any special treatment, but a comp dessert or glass... More

A friend and I had lunch at this little place in Fairfax. From the street, it's brightly colored with lettering all over the exterior walls, but one can not easily see the name of this restaurant!! There is a small sign in front and a larger more noticeable sign in back, but it's simply not enough! Upon walking up, one... More

They serve mediterranean and persian cuisine, and it is hands down the best I have ever had! It's right on 50/29 and almost hidden by other businesses, but it's definitely worth looking for. Excellent service, great staff, and fantastic food! If they offered delivery I would never have to cook dinner again!

I have to tell ya that I had a terrific lunch experience this afternoon at COOKING & COMPANY in Fairfax, Va. Tastefully decorated in Mediterranean style, this small, corner lot restaurant on a very busy thoroughfare in Fairfax, Va. offers positively the best quality Italian and Mediterranean cuisine I have ever had. The menu is wonderful and offers many well... More

We came across this restaurant almost by accident because it has recently changed names (not ownership) and currently has no sign (!). The dining room is quiet, somewhat dated but comfortable, reminiscent of fine dining in an ethnic community. The menu has lots of interesting options including Italian, Greek, Persian and vegetarian. Warm Persian Bread with a spicy spread was... More

We live in Fairfax County, Virginia, and had driven by this restaurant many times but never bothered to dine there because the outside did not look so attractive. We finally decided to give it a try and boy were we pleasantly surprised. The interior looked much nicer than the outside and the food was excellent -- both the chicken kebab... More

Be very careful if you go there when they have live music. There is a 20 dollar cover charge regardless if you have their buffet or not. For example if you only have a glass of wine, it could cost you around 30 dollars (including the cover charge). The confusing thing is that they don't tell you that upfront or... More

Found the dinner to be rather expensive for what we got. Food was good, as i recall, but it was way out of line for the presentation and layout of the restaurant.

Great food, great atmosphere, great prices and great service. What more needs to be said. We were heading for a different restaurant, which was too full to seat us. We headed back down the street and decided to stop at cooking & company. We were very glad we did. this is a find.
