Don't understand the good reviews. We did not like it the first time but gave it a second chance. The food is below average. The veal parm was average but the tomato sauce ruined it. Way too strong and it drowns out the veal. My wife's manicotti was not very good at all. Previously I tried the chicken parm. It... More

We have dined at Cantina D'italia many times over the years. Our latest was the third week in November. We can count on this restaurant for very good food, excellent service and large portions. We never seem to be able to finish a whole entrée at a seating which is just fine as we always have wonderful leftovers later in... More

We went here last weekend before a movie, after not having eaten here in a couple years. We were in about 5:30, and the place was packed by 6:30. We shared a mozzarella caprese, which was a good thing because it was more than enough, 8 pieces of good cheese on fresh plum tomato slices each with a basil leaf,... More

This family run restaurant is nicely located near our home. The portions are large and the dinner price includes the entree and salad or soup. My husband particularly enjoys the salmon fortino and I like the dish that is chicken with apples. The price tag won't break your bank and the atmosphere is cozy.

I highly recommend Cantina D'Italia in Herndon. The food is excellent. The service was probably the best service we have had in a very long time. Ambiance was relaxing and comfortable and the pricing is excellent. I had a crap and pasta dish and they gladly accommodated me with adding shrimp. We plan on returning again and again.

Small restaurant tucked away in the corner of strip mall you can easily miss it. Surprise when you get inside beautiful decor. Friendly staff. But most of all real home made italian food. Love tier spaghetti and clams in white sauce. Puttanesca like my mother use to make. Lamb an veal dishes really good too. Good service great food reasonable... More

Parents in town for a visit last weekend and I planned dinner for them and a few friends on Saturday night. A few friends turned into a party of 12. The restaurant accommodated us nicely and everyone was very happy with dinner. Food quality was very good, prices are very reasonable and the service was excellent. We had 2 newbies... More

I've been to this wonderful family restaurant for years. I took my parents there last week and they loved it. The service is always good and the food never disappoints. Their prices are good and portions big. I especially appreciate to see the same management over the years greet us with open arms. I'll be back!

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for years. Managed very well, the food is consistently "very good." Reasonable value for the cost and the restaurant will absolutely cater to those with unique 'food preparation' requirements. Highly recommended...
