“Consistently good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

This is my husband's favorite restaurant so we come here fairly often, with friends, with our family, just the two of us. The service is always good and the food is consistently good. We've never had a bad experience. I can no longer eat gluten and they are very knowledgeable and willing to prepare a dish specially for me without breading, for example. Great place!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

A great place to meet others, have a tasty glass of wine during happy hour and eat some exquisite treats to go with your Malbec or Merlot.

“Dolce Vita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Excellent place to take friends, family or a business dinner or lunch for authentic Italian food, (Owner is from Italy!) I have done all three on many occasions. The servers are very nice and courteous. They give you helpful advice on food and wine and are very accommodating on busy Friday nights. A place worthwhile to try!

“Best Italian Bistro in No. VA”

This is the best bistro Italian food in Northern Virginia. The menu specials are always excellent - wine parings are perfect and service is the best!

“Good food but seating pattern is interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Was in town with friends for a business trip. Found the restaurant online. Food was really good but we noticed that they surrounded us with families with babies. We weren't going to move because we were in the middle of eating but thought that it was strange that they'd literally surround us with babies in high chairs when there were plenty of other tables available.
