Zeffirelli’s is consistently one of the best restaurants in the area and my favorite in Northern Virginia. The food is superb, the service impeccable and atmosphere wonderful. Waiters always know the best wine to pair with the food. I love this restaurant!!!!
This is hands down one of the best restaurants on the planet!! From the staff to the food to the environment.. THE BEST!!!!
My husband and I dined here for our 1st wedding anniversary. We saw the great reviews, went in with high expectations, and were not disappointed. The service was phenomenal, food was delicious (though my lobster was just slightly overdone) and the ambiance was perfect for our special day! We will definitely be back!
Talk about a neighborhood gem, this is like having a diamond mine in your backyard! They aren't kidding when they say the veal of the best in the city.
The food was fantastic, came recommended by a local. Highly recommend this place, outstanding.
As Always, Zeffirelli's offers SUPERB Cuisine. This has been "our place" for my beautiful wife and myself for more than 12 years. To remain the quality and consistency for these many years it in itself a magnificent achievement. My sincere completments to the Chef, Waiters and Staff.
I guess you surmise from this review that we LOVE Zeffirelli's!
We had not been there in 20 years. It was as good as we remembered. It won’t be 20 years before we go back.
We went to celebrate our anniversary. This place does not disappoint.
Great local non chain restaurant. Service seems to be declining as well as the famous veal chop which was a little dry. Delicious rack of lamb though so maybe the new specials are the way to go.
It was my birthday night, went out with girlfriend it was delicious and quiet, we are definitely going back
Great restaurant. Delicious food. Impeccable service. Heartily recommend this. My veal was almost fork tender and it was good; the most tender veal I have had in the metro area. I love this restaurant.
I've been to this restaurant a number of times 2017-2018 with my wife; small and large groups; as well as occasionally over the past 15 years. The food, service has been consistentily good over the years.
My only complaint this time, we had a group sitting behind us that were loud to the point that the Restaurant Manager should have asked them to quiet down, Other then that, my rating stands. Sayles
Food is exquisitely delicious, two thumbs up & highly highly recommend it!
While we enjoy going there on a regular basis, we were dismayed to see that their special “mothers day menu” was simply the regular menu BUT WITH EVERY ITEM PRICED HIGHER by several dollars! 😡 Very disappointed.
As always, everything at Zeffirelli was delicious for a special Mother's Day dinner. Great staff and great food!
The food, location and service was great! Highly recommend it if you are looking to try something different and cozy.
Outstanding. First time there. My girlfriend had been there before and recommended it. When you charge $54.00 for a veal chop It should be superb and it was. The clams casino were not made the traditional way as these were breaded. Still very good. Her veal piccata was delicious. I have eaten at other nice Italian restaurants in the area, but see no need to go anywhere else but here.
Zeffirelli’s is our favorite restaurant. The food is always good, the service is spectacular and their wine selection is wonderful. The Somalia is terrific and always has a very special wine to recommend. We are never disappointed in the food, service or wine.
Love the food here. It is an under rated restaurant and a good option for solid Italian food.
Grilled squid was good. Chicken parm wasn't good. It was soggy and dry. The environment was stuffy also. Not gonna go there again.
Excellent. As always
Another great dinner. I enjoyed the salmon and my associate had a seafood dish with lobster, shrimp and mussels. They have an excellent wine selection. We had a super tuscan which was excellent.
Service is always great.
escargot and veal chop were the favorites. It was nice to see the restaurant full on a Tuesday night. Atmosphere was very festive.
This restaurant never disappoints. It's quiet enough to bring my elderly parents and the food is always excellent. We love the muscles, pasta, and rack of lamb. It also has the best veal chop in town!
Firt time visit, but will definitely be back! Great service and food and very reasonable prices.
Food was very good; ambiance was very pleasant, and the service was first rate. This was a Sunday evening and that might account for the fact that the noise level was very low so conversation was easy. Also, nice separation between tables so you were not on top of your next door neighbor.
Was a favorite place for my wife and I... Got a chance to go back after leaving the area for 8 years and was happy that the food and service were every bit a good.... Get the veal chop!!!! iT's the bomb.
Food OK, but signature item (veal chop) was WAY too expensive. Wine also way too expensive. Service needs to be more professional, e.g. waiter stretching across a patron to pick up a plate.
Great food and service as always . Very consistent
Still one of our favorite places.
Service and Food was excellent. Always a good meal here.
Had another great meal at Zeffirelli. Great local Italian restaurant.
Delicious dinner to celebrate a lady friend's birthday. Excellent wine recommended by the manager, superb service by Ana our attentive server. I had added a note that it was a birthday when I made the OpenTable reservation -- Ana noted this and added a single candle to the one serving of Tiramisu without being prompted! Nice touch. We also received two sambuca snifters complete with three coffee beans (health, happiness, and prosperity!) courtesy of the restaurant to cap off our delightful dining experience.
Returned to Zeffirelli's during a now sadly rare visit to the Washington DC area and we were not disappointed. The same high standard of Italian cuisine we remember so well. We took friends who live in Vienna, VA and had not been before, they were as delighted as we were. The seafood special was an outstanding choice, and my veal picante was great.
If you like good Italian food, cooked well, and served with individual style you'll enjoy Zeffirelli's
Loved the food, yes my salad came out as less than excellent, but the server promptly noticed that I was dissatisfied and replaced it with something he promised would be better. Turns out he was right! Otherwise everything was excellent and we enjoyed our meal. Sometimes excellent service makes all the difference!! Thank you for the fabulous food and amazing wine (recommended by our server) We will return and recommend!!!
We found this place just by accident and were delighted with everything from the ambiance to the fresh bread to portion sizes- not overwhelming - to the wonderful service. We hope to make it back sometime soon when we are in the area again.
We love this restaurant. Excellent food and service.
Zefferellis has always been one of our favorites well known for great service and dinners. Before moving to Charlotte, NC in 2005 we were frequent customers. Now that we have returned to the northern VA area we were very happy to see the service is still outstanding, the staff very friendly and attentive and the food is still as we remembered, marvelous. We will definitely take advantage of ocean living close by to become regular patrons.
Really enjoyed it
