Our family has dined at Ziffirelli on special occasions over the last 15 years. The food and service has always been excellent, and remains consistent today. The signature veal chop was moved to a special during this visit, but is well worth a visit. The...More

Love this restaurant, the food is consistently delicious. Great wine list and the staff are always helpful with recommendations. Menu has something for everyone from vegan to meat lover. The veal chop is one of their signature dishes and well worth trying!

The atmosphere and the food are just amazing. I can't say enough. I went here for a special occasion and it was perfect. I highly recommend this place, but realize that it is pricey, but worth it to me.

One of the best and true italien restaurants in Washington DC area. They are known for their lamb chops, but all their dishes are unique and excellent. I love the so called cleopatra, sea food with pasta.

I stopped in yesterday (Wednesday) for an impromptu lunch with 3 colleagues. White linen service, Frank Sinatra playing softly in the background, Veal Chop, Pasta, Grilled Salmon, Chicken Romana, fresh bread, Motto Cabernet...wonderful. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, can't wait to return.
