My husband and I enjoyed perhaps our best dinner meal out ever. Try the five-course chef's choice option and you will not be disappointed. The service was also terrific. This is a small, intimate restaurant that offers an extraordinary evening.

The food, presentation and atmosphere were just perfection. We had an assortment of appetizers and entrees. All I can say is WOW. The staff were very attentive and professional. Probably our best dining experience ever.

We felt like we were back in Italy. Medium sized cozy space. Good wine selection (not extensive). All servers very friendly and sociable. All the food was excellent. Had a veal special with prosciutto ham and mozzarella cheese and mussels and escargot appetizer. Seafood pasta also great. Definitely will return. Moderately priced.

Very cozy and a little on the high side - price wise. Nice place to have lunch and the normal fare were good. Overall the meals were descent, but just too expensive given the taste of the meal. I would go back because of the coziness and will continue to try proven and popular menu items.

We've been here for dinner on numerous occasions but this was a first for lunch. As it was during restaurant week we tried the 3 course lunch for $22.00. A few glasses of the house chianti and The toretta mozzarella and caesar salad appetizer were great. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her chicken granchioli and my fettucine ragu was great. Finished...

Bellissimo is a cozy Italian getaway in Old Town Fairfax. Service is always excellent and the Italian choices here are numerous enough for everyone to have a favorite. The food is well-prepared, tasty and supported by a fairly good selection of wines. Free city parking is right around the corner.

I don't mind spending money on food, but I do expect the quality to match. My husband and I found our meals to be very disappointing. I had a seafood and pasta dish. The scallops were very bitter and the lobster was a little chewy. My husband had the duck special, and he said it was average, and he didn't... More

Food and atmosphere was GREAT for a date night. More upscale dress but with a relaxes atmosphere. I do not recommend for small children, but great prices for this type of establishment. Dinner for 2 with desert and a bottle of wine was less than $120.

Thank Anne D
