We had another delicious Italian dinner at Zefferellis Ristorante in old town Herndon, Viriginia. This is our third visit and the service was as good as it was the first time. The waiter staff is very attentive and professional exemplified by their traditional uniforms. We enjoyed veal ravioli, chicken Parmesan, and simple fettuccine bolongese -- all three meals were hot and full of flavor,

Zeffirellis is a great alternative to the Reston Town Center foodies and since it located close to Reston it is a great Italian family owned restaurant.

Bon Appetite.
Bon Apetit.

Old school Italian. Prompt but not solicitous service. Good Italian wine list. If unfamiliar with the names - ask. You'll get a good recommendation which won't break the bank. The veal chop is the star. One of the best in the country and consistent time after time. The clam and mussel appetizers are both excellent. The pastas are fresh and come with the usual suspects of sauces but the house will happily adapt. An angel hair with a little live oil, garlic and parmesan is my favorite. It can be a little crowded (it really is the only place worth going) so book a table.

My friend & I, became regulars at this awesome place. The best service & the best food. We always come back & we recommend it to our friends & colleagues. The wine is on the pricey side though but no regrets there!

The place is very enjoyable. Don't look for polished service or spiffy surroundings... you'll find a homey, bit worn, close tables, friendly service and most importantly, excellent chow. They highlight the grilled bone in veal chop... with good reason, it's perfect. All of the food is solid. Wine pricing for the best bottles is very high... stick to the house chianti... very serviceable . All in all a perfect choice for our dinner while overnighting before our flight out of Dulles the next day.
