“Thank u Mr. Oscar & Mr. Jose. U pulled our leg to the very special "Cleopatra"!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Outstanding food, service, music background & atmosphere! We always come back when in the area. Excellent Mr. Oscar, amazing salesman for the specials & the best recommendation along with Mr, Jose, server, who goes out & beyond his way to meet, greet & compliment regulars. Order the lamp chops & the "Cleopatra sea food pasta with champagne sauce"! Yummy! Their deserts are fantastic too & the wine list is efficient enough. We love this place, recommend it & always come back. Thank you all guys....

“Good Italian food in Herndon!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Went with family (two teenage boys) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We made our reservation earlier in the day and were immediately seated on arrival. The place is 'cozy' - tables are just a little small and very close to each other. Service was good and efficient. As advertised, their claim to fame is their signature veal chop - excellent! Poultry dishes are ok, nothing to write home about. Excellent selection of wines... Only downside is their vegetarian options are very limited.

“Lovely atmosphere and good Italian food”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

We arrived at this restaurant this evening with no booking but were shown straight away to a nice table in the window.
The food was excellent - good minestrone soup and salicca sausage as starters, and veal entrees, served with linguini.
The wine - chianti and Nero davala - were very pleasant, as was the sambuca.
The service was very good - attentive but unobtrusive.
The only disappointment was the tiramisu - not at all Italian - literally sponge cake with cream and a light coffee flavour, not the 'pick me up' one would normally expect.

“outstanding Italian”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Best restaurant I've found in Herndon. A big step above the usual Italian menus, especially at the chains (this restaurant is privately owned). Service was very courteous; I did not feel dissed as a solo woman guest. Their ravioli is filled with meat, not cheese, and is just delicious.
