The veal here is always awesome. This is one of those places that you will always get a good meal and good service. I recommend to everyone visiting the area. The menu is great and the food is prepared well. Nice atmosphere for date night.

A smaller work group for dinner tonight. When we walked inside I remembered being here several years ago and enjoying the Italian then. Tonight, I can confirm: - the calamari was a great appetizer, paired with a nice sausage and pepper sauce and with tomato and mozarella - great bread, and the olive oil and balsamic and parmasean and salt...

We've been coming here forever, through 4 managers. Great italian food, frequent specials. Good, but pricey wine selection, about 4x what you would pay in a store like Costco. Always very fresh. Service is excellent.

This restaurant has long been a fixture for local diners. It is a small place so tables are a bit closer to one another than typical restaurants. The waiters appear to be older experienced Italian gentlemen with gracious manners with attention to details. The food is authentic and delicious. The chef came from kitchen at my (Italian) friend's request so... More

They're famous for their meat, but try the lobster ravioli, you'll want to lick your plate clean. The service is good, the atmosphere is relaxed and low key.

My wife and I came here for an anniversary dinner and both the service and food were great. It was a nice quiet restaurant for a special night out. We enjoyed our meals and for dessert the tiramisu was excellent.

What a marvelous dining experience! Service was unsurpassed - friendly, efficient, genuine. My husband ordered a seafood linguine special which they gladly accommodated changes on ingredients and spice level. Pasta, shrimp and scallops all cooked perfectly in a succulent sauce. My choices were a buffalo caprese and cannoli florentine. Also excellent! Extensive wine list. Bill with wine and after dinner... More

Frequented Zeffirelli Ristorante Italiano at the recommendation of friends who frequent the restaurant often. My wife and I met them there for an evening out in early June. The Herndon Festival was taking place, so the street was active, but we were quickly able to find parking in the reserved lot behind the restaurant. Politely greeted at the door and... More

Zeffirelli's was a wonderful experience on my business trip. We had dinner with our vendor, a party of 10, and everything from bread, appetizers, and main courses came out fast and cooked to perfection. The sea bass on the specials was a popular choice among our group. I however had the seafood linguine, including a lobster tail, jumbo shrimp, and... More
