Met friends there for early dinner. Food was good- pasta vongele was great- others had crab and pasta with cream sauce. Also good. Portions were adequate and very reasonable. Only disappointment was that a dessert special was not available

I went there with an Italian friend of mine. Surprisingly, our server spoke Italian! Most servers at Italian restaurants DON'T speak Italian. Good food, good service, and authentic Italian server. Great place!

The food is delicious. Our daughter and her family love the pizza and salad but we love the chicken arrebiatica (chicken breasts covered in mozzarela cheese with white wine, and green pepper sauce).

We enjoyed a family dinner here on a Saturday evening. Without reservations they seated our party of six (three generations of one family) immediately into a nice quiet corner so that we could visit with one another easily. There was no blast of air conditioning pushing down on us, which was a big plus for the older generation. Two of... More

For us, this was a rare disappointment. Pros: fast service, staff friendly, large open seating area, cost. Cons: bruschetta bread was burned and swimming in oil, chicken was very greasy and undercooked. Info: we stopped in for a late lunch and we were disappointed with the meal (see cons). We won't return.

nothing fancy, just plain home cooking. Love their pizza and calzones. Wait staff never changes which makes it very special

Good food...friendly staff...reasonable prices. No military or AA discounts offered. Even though it's a family owned business, there was adequate seating. They even have nice patio seating. I would definately return.

This used to be our "go to" for comfort Italian food and atmosphere and it was not uncommon to find a line at the door on weekend nights for this kitschy, slightly out of date but always good food spot. The interior has since been remodeled and there was no wait line on Friday night. The remodel, while it brightened... More

When we lived in Fairfax, we dined at Esposito's frequently, but now it's a long drive. We decided last week to give it a try and were not disappointed. The food is as good as always. The house-made pasta simply melts in your mouth. I had Feste de Mare...the shell fish was great. My wife had eggplant parmesan and loved... More

This is a family owned restaurant. Great service. I got the spaghetti carbonara. It's good but too salty. Wife ordered a margarita pizza but it is nothing more than a plain cheese pizza. No tomatoes and they were out of basil. The waitress told us margarita pizzas have no tomatoes. Wrong.

Thank eaglesclaw121
