We had the sauteed clams in wine sauce that were so good that we used the bread to scoop out all of the broth. The rack of lamb is the finest that we have ever had! Try all the Cantina Ditalia restaurants in the area. They should be equally excellent.

I have been a frequent at the Fair Lakes location, so do I now, at Herndon. Their pizzas and pastas are so fresh and tasty, the salads are crisp, worth to give it a try.

We have been here several times now - three or four times with a group of 8-14 people and with just 2 or 3 of us. The food is always great - and plentiful enough that you could take some home for the next meal. The atmosphere is very nice, and the staff very helpful, and the service has always... More

This is a pretty solid restaurant, consistently good and casual. My go to dish would be the penne al granchio, which has a really good amount of crab with a nice tomato/cream sauce. Portions are large, and come with excellent bread and a nice salad. I like this for a casual night out.

Cantina D'Italia has been around for over 25 years. In the early years when the parents ran the restaurant, the food and quick service kept us returning sometimes twice a week at lunch and dinner. Now; however, under the son's management, the service and kitchen coordination is severely lacking and thus, after being seated on a Friday night we waited... More

We eat here about once a month and I have never feared to bring business associates here. The staff is friendly and will make any adjustments or requests - such as shelling clams or putting real anchovies on your Caesars Salad or substituting linguine for spaghetti that you might like. Strongly recommend the place to aircrews RON in the Dulles... More

My wife and I had our first date here more than 15 years ago - we enjoyed the food, the wine, and the Italian feel of the Cantina. It was and still is very pleasant place to dine. The prices for food and wine are surprisingly low especially since the quality is so high. We have eaten here at least... More

With the closing of Macaroni Grill and Primo Italiano the number of Italian sources has declined for reasonably priced options for dine in or carry out in Reston. Carabas restaurant has responded by raising prices and cutting out favored dishes.. We have dined with Catinia D'italia when we lived near Annapolis, but that location has closed. The Herndon location has... More

I went here for a wedding rehearsal dinner. We had a party of 40 which is a lot to fit into this location but we had reservations in months early. They were well prepared and we never waited on drinks and our food came out rather quick for the circumstances. I got my food within 30 minutes and my drink... More
