Description: 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.

I discovered Vespucci's by googling best Italian restaurants in Fairfax, VA. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. I enjoyed it so much that I ate there both nights that I was in Fairfax!!

“Have Time on Your Hands”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

When we arrived, we thought the restaurant had potential. The waiter was good and we enjoyed the pianist, but waiting for more than an hour for 2 entrees was disappointing. Our waiter even agreed. The owner of the restaurant was not able to provide an explanation and really needs a lessen in customer service. If you are planning to go here, have nothing but time on your hands.

“Vespucci is Excellet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2011

Vespucci is excellent. This is a wonderful place. It has the feeling of Italian romance. It has these wonderful tables for two that just make you feel you are going to a special place just for you and your partner. The staff is attentive and they hit the mark for us each time we needed them to appear. The food was served with precision. It was hot off the grill. My guess is that it was on our table in less than a minute after it the Chef put it on our plate. The food was a delight. I must tell you that Rosie and I will return againg for another romantic dinner.

“Wonderful, gracious service, great tasting food and just a lovely place to dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2010

These people know how to treat their guests. I read the negative reviews and can hardly believe they went to the same place I did. Try it and write your review. I bet it will be like mine. Wonderful, gracious service, great tasting food and just a lovely place to dine
