Bonaroti is my favorite place to dine. It's so nice to go somewhere you know the food and service are going to be excellent, and it's quiet enough to have a conversation with friends.
Went for Mother's Day and it was just as wonderful as always. Service is excellent and so is the food. The most tender calamari appetizer. They also are very accepting of young children, and will accommodate them with half portions.
6:30 reservation. Seated promptly. Crowded seating. Attentive service. Food is well done but not more than good. Wine is overpriced IMHO. Dessert was good in portion size and quality. The meal was around $130 with gratuity. I think that the meal wasn’t worth that but it was good.
Service, food and ambience all outstanding for our Mom's Day dinner, with 3 moms present. Sergio, as always, was gracious and attentive. We'll be back!
We will go back again. Delicious and the service was outstanding.
Dinner was delicious and the service outstanding. For years among our first choice go-to restaurants for great food and special occasions. Thoroughly enjoyed the lemon cheesecake dessert.
Pasta was over cooked!
Wonderful food accompanied by an exceptional host! Serge always makes us feel special!
I went here for lunch. It is a hidden treasure. Lovely decor, perfect service, and great food. I will go back.
Great place to celebrate a birthday! Thank you for making it special.
Ristorante Bonaroti is my favorite restaurant in the Washington DC area. And having grown up in Syracuse New York where Italian food ranks high, we have searched Maryland DC and Northern Virginia to placate my cravings we have found Bonaroti’s to be the Best Italian food by far. Thank You, Sergio for creating it!
They really made it feel like an authentic Italian restaurant. The owner himself was there to greet us and asked how our dining experience was. I absolutely loved this place and will come back again!
We always enjoy going to Ristorante Bonaroti, and this time was no different. The food is always excellent and the service well above average. Our only complaint this time was that they seated us between two other full tables - one of which was very loud 5-person business meeting (and what sounded like a party in the next room), even though the entire rest of the dining room was empty except for sporadic 2-person diners the entire time we were there. I can understand non-optimal seating in busy times, but not when they have the whole restaurant to choose from. There were certainly quieter options for a romantic dinner for two than where we were placed.
The owner, Sergio, always welcomes each guest and selects the "right" table for the occasion. He remembers you even if you have not been there in months! So nice to be welcomed in a warm, special ... Italian manner!
The ambiance is very nice and "Old Country"; with servers who are omnipresent but not intruding. Your water is always refilled and your bread basket always full of fragrant, warm, delicious bread.
What to say about the food? "Wonderful" is the adjective that comes to mind! My appetizer was great and my "Osso Buco" was fantastic ... My husband's salmon and my grandson's sole, expertly de-boned at the table by Sergio, was really grand.
Our desserts were delicious; the Tiramisu', Cannoli, and fruit sherbet were perfectly made and presented.
What a feast we had!!! Can't wait for the next occasion to go back!
Delizioso! Delicious as always. Grazie!!
I took my mother out to lunch for an early Mother's Day celebration. The staff congratulated my mother -- she was delighted! She was just as delighted by the excellent food and service. We will go back!
Wonderful menu but wait until you hear their "specials".
Simply outstanding! Best risotto I’ve ever had!
I have been eating in this restaurant for 3 times within the month. Each time I eat there, it was wonderful. The food, service and atmosphere was fantastic!! The server was very knowledgeable and offers great recommendations. Definitely a 5 star restaurant and would definitely recommend it to my family and friends.
We have been patrons of Bonaroti for almost 50 years and have never gotten a bad meal, poor service or anything other than a big smile and personal touch by the owner!
We love Bonaroti.
Excellent food, drink and service. Highly recommend.
I so enjoy the small yet exquisite ambiance created here. Wait staff are attentive and helpful. Food is well prepared and deliciously filling.
The food is outstanding with many different choices as "specials" for the evening. The wait staff is attentive without being obtrusive. As one who visits Vienna frequently, it has become my favorite place when I am in town.
Exceptional food, a charming host, superb service, great ambience.
We’d highly recommend.
We enjoyed our dinner ver much and will definitely come back soon!
A nice evening out with my husband. The food is always excellent, and we were happy to have Paul as our waiter again!
Food and service is always outstanding - a favorite of ours for all occasions.
My husband and I were to celebrate a birthday. We love this restaurant. I had the lamb and he had the osso bucco. The wait staff make you feel special and they do not rush the experience. Always an awesome evening. And the Tiramisu was incredible.
My wife and I came to celebrate our 25th anniversary and everything was perfect! The service we experienced was the best that we have had in quite a while. Food was terrific. I highly recommend this place for a romantic dinner or if you are craving authentic Italian food.
Wow! My wife and I had not been to Bonaroti's in years and were we missing out. What a fabulous restaurant! We were greeted immediately upon entering and led to a great table. The service the entire evening was impeccable. Everything about this restaurant was awesome. The menu and specials were amazing, the wine list was excellent and reasonably priced, and the ambiance was perfect. They topped the meal off with limoncello and biscotti, which was a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. We will definitely be back.
Unbelievable food and service. Top rate wait staff who gave great recommendations and even told us how to save money on our wine order. Will 100% be back!
Grad school admission
Food is not an exceptional.
I think they have been changed over the years.
Excellent meal and service. Very good place for a business lunch meeting.
This classic Italian fine dinning establishment never gets old or goes out of style. From the moment you enter the front door you are made to feel like an old friend. The food is outstanding with an extensive list of nightly specials. So many great options it’s hard to choose.
Loved this dining experience! As did everyone in our party. The food was delicious.
Always a great evening with delicious food and excellent service.
One of my favorite restaurants. Never fails to please with fantastic food and service. Have recommended it to multiple people.
I have been a customer of Sergio (the owner) for 30 years. Bonaroti is the best Italian Restaurant in the area.
