“Expensive, but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant is on a somewhat expensive side (a dinner for two, with wine, tax and tips, added up to $160), but excellent in everything, from bread and butter and to main course. We had polenta porcini sout and octopus for appetizers, and they were outstanding, and truffle chestnut tortellinis and rabbit sausage stuffed quail. All of them were excellent. For a worthy occasion, it is a very good place.

“Great Find - Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We met friends at Villa Mozart for a birthday celebration. This was our first time eating at Villa Mozart and it will forever be on our list. The service and food were perfect. The ambience is comfortable and relaxing. The staff are very attentive and seem to know when to show up or stay away. The only challenge is the parking which was a tight fit for our full size car. Nonetheless, it is not an issue but be cautious.

We highly recommend this place for a great dinner.

“Outstanding Little Restaurant Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Villa Mozart never serves a bad meal. The ambience, freshly prepared Northern Italian menu by the owner/chef, and impeccable service make this place a delight for any special occasion or even a quiet lunch. The menu changes seasonally. The wine list is extensive and outstanding.

“Visited 3 times in 2 weeks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We were in Fairfax, Virginia between Oct. 26 and November 7th. After the first visit, we just had to come again, twice! The food is exceptional, the service is efficient and understated and friendly. The prices are a bit above moderate, but you will have remarkable food. The portions are not huge, so three courses are easily consumed. There is a definite Austrian bent, but clearly continental as well. Monday through Thursdays, there is a 3-course prix fixe arrangement that brings prices down.

You don't want to miss their special cocktails, and good wines are available by the glass as well as by the bottle.

Among the dishes my husband and I enjoyed were Pasta Ametriciana, Pasta with Lobster, Venison, Chestnut pappardelle with venison ragu, Shrimp and Scallop in Lobster/red pepper sauce, Fettucine with pork ragu, and the desserts: chocolate semifreddo, nougat mousse and chestnut mousse. Excellent preparations.

A must visit if you are in Fairfax, Virginia!

“good food High price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Lunched here one day. Food & service excellent. Portions small & pricey. Definitely not enough for a hungry man, but enough for a small girl like me.
