For a special occasion, I highly recommend Geranio Ristorante! Chef Troy Clayton was outstanding in providing assistance & guidance with planning a rehearsal dinner for my son & his bride-to-be in July, 2013. Almost all of the planning was conducted by email with the chef's prompt & detailed answers to all my questions. Having dined there on a visit to the D.C. area 3 months earlier, I found the quality of food & service to be excellent which was again happily evident during our special occasion. The upstairs private dining area was perfect for our group of 25 with an intimate atmosphere & delicious meal. The only challenge our guests faced was selecting which of the several excellent choices to make from each course on Geranio's custom designed menus for our rehearsal dinner. The service was prompt & efficient & we had many rave reviews from guests who declared their meals to be outstanding. Whether you are located in the area or states away, you can count on Chef Troy & his staff to meet your every special occasion need. Bon Appetit !

This restaurant was a classy Italian place along the lines of what you might see in Little Italy in New York or Boston. I ordered the fettuccine and it was very good, although the highlight was the appetizer I ordered. The tomato and fresh mozzarella salad was exquisite, amongst the best I have had. Parking was a bit of an issue, but the restaurant itself wasn't too crowded. Overall, I recommend this restaurant.

We were back after a few months and had another wonderful experience. The service, the menu and the quality of the food are well worth a visit!

We entertained 10 guests here last night and it was the most amazing meal most of us could remember having. The entrees are to-die-for. Their risottos were all amazing and the filet was fantastic. Also, the service was spectacular. Perfect experience.

Wonderful Italian restaurant! This place has it all...great food (and not just Italian), great service, awesome wine list. Prices are within reason. My husband had the lobster risotto. He raved about it. I had the sea scallops. They were good, but next time I will heed the notation regarding the fact that certain dishes are prepared medium rare unless otherwise requested I think I would have preferred them a little more well done. Our daughter had the free range chicken. They were very agreeable to a request she had to swap sides. A ten percent discount was given if dinner was ordered before 7 or after 9:30 We were happy to discover this fact and because our reservation was for 6, we were given the discount...an added plus. Salads are ala carte. Good experience. I will go back.
