Pasta and cannellini bean soup
penne tossed in a sauce of tomato filets, julienne carrots and shiitake mushrooms
Great food, great experience.
Dinner was delightful, and the musical entertainment was outstanding.
Been here many times and Bonaroti never disappoints.
Fabulous service, cocktails, food and wine. We had a great evening for my spouse’s birthday. Sergio the owner and Chris our server was super attentive and engaging, while giving us plenty of quiet time. The food was extraordinary and plentiful with the accompanying wine they suggested. We ended with an awesome dessert and cappuccino. We’ll be back for sure!
Outstanding high quality real old school Italian. Still THE best!!
Great dinner. Ate outside. The fetticini Sergio was great as always. The waiters were exceptional.
Ristorante Bonaroti is a genuine Italian treasure. All pasta is homemade and there are always too many specials to consider.
Absolutely loved the food, the staff, the service, and the environment. The downside was the noise during our visit. We were looking for a quiet engagement celebration so we booked late into the evening. When we arrived there was a party of 8 with four small children that were extremely loud to the point we couldn't hear ourselves over them. This persisted for our entire visit and we ended it early without dessert or finishing our meals to move to a quieter venue. This seemed like a one-off issue so we'll be returning for sure.
Second time there; food, service and ambience were fantastic. My new favorite Italian restaurant.
Friendly atmosphere, outstanding service and the food is served hot and nothing is over cooked, including the vegetables. This is one of the best restaurants in northern Virginia.
My fiance and I had such a lovely dinner, everything was outstanding: the service, the food, the ambiance. I would highly recommend for a romantic night out.
Tuna carpaccio and the monkfish pasta we’re great. Service was good up until the end. Took 20 minutes to get our check.
The food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful. The homemade sausage ravioli was amazing and the shrimp was fresh. My husband had the veal Saltimbocca and I had the veal bonaroti. Both were great dishes. I am never disappointed here.
Had a nice dinner with my family of 5. Everything was great until I made the mistake of ordering the cannelloni. It was like an overcooked manicotti drowned in meat sauce. Very disappointing. Everyone else like their entrees and the appetizers were good...but boy the cannelloni was bad.
Excellent restaurant. Extensive menu. Hard to choose. Very professional staff under these unusual conditions. Loved it
As always, Ristorante Bonaroti provides a quality dining experience. I've been patronizing this restaurant since 1987, and the overall quality and ambiance are second to none.
Sergio the manager / host is wonderful, greets me by name, and the food and atmosphere is outstanding.
Plus, the restaurant is fully in compliance with all facets of the necessary physical and social distancing guidance related to the COVID pandemic.
We will return!
Consistently some of the finest high end Italian in the DC metro area. The freshness of the fish, the homemade pasta, and hand cuts meats are complemented by the exceptional service from the moment you enter the door. In a COVID world they also are nailing with with distancing and outdoor seating.
We recently had our first meal inside - there was ample distancing, the staff was super attentive, and they even offered to do a half and half meal when I was trying to decide which main dish to order. everything is so very nice there. It is authentic Italian, family run, and part of the neighborhood while being a treat at the same time! We also ordered out for a group of people to have a distanced dinner in our backyard a while back and that was fantastic too! Love this place.
So happy they are open again. Friendly service and great pasta. Loved the tapenade.
Always fabulous food. Unfortunately, we had to eat outside due to COVID conditions so it was really hot. But service is impeccable as always.
Great food and excellent service!! We celebrated our daughter’s 25th birthday and the Birthday surprise was lovely. Our sons loved the steak, the girls loved the pasta, my husband loved the shrimp and I loved the osso bucco. They were great about social distancing and very attentive too.
Everything was excellent. Our homemade ravioli appetizer, our Caesar Salad, my Husbands Veal dish... All Delicious. However, the one reason I go back and back is because their lasagna rivaled that of Florence. It was a Ragu and Béchamel layered base. Tonight’s lasagna dinner was 98% red sauce. Not Florence style anymore. I mean Béchamel is cheap to make... Flour, butter, milk, nutmeg, white pepper, salt... I was disappointed in the lasagna tonight. This is the only Old School restaurant you can go to in this area that make their pasta from scratch and does a béchamel/ragu lasagna. I only hope they go back to their old way. On the side, the service is excellent. Cocktails on point!
Great food and service
The meal was exceptional and the service was excellent. From the time we walked through the door until we left we felt like we were the only people in the restaurant. Every single item we ordered was skillfully prepared and scrumptious. They had more specials than I have ever seen and that was on top of an already extensive menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. If you are in the area and looking for authentic Italian food this is the place.
Service and food was excellent!
Service was outstanding! The food was incredible!
Took great care especially in the Covid era. Food just as good as ever.
Food and Service was exemplary, as always. Wine list is spectacular and the prices are very fair for bottles. Food is fabulous with MANY options and specials. Again, prices are very competitive for Northern Virginia and this family-owned GEM is sure to surpass expectations!
Food was exceptional! Service wonderful.
It was good to be back inside again!! Our favorite place!!
Social distancing and service with a mask. Well prepared food in a elegant atmosphere.
This is a hometown gem and our favorite Italian restaurant. Authentic and delicious!
Food is excellent! Thank you always to Sergio and team for a wonderful dinning Iexperience.
This restaurant has always been our favorite. It has been a great place to dine since they opened their doors. Over the years it’s gotten better. Quality and service are phenomenal.
Consistently outstanding in every way. Highly recommend for special occasions. I have been going to this restaurant for 38 years since it opened and enjoy going many times a month. Great menu and many specials are offered.
Bonaroti is the best. Old school in the best way. See for yourself.
Excellent food and service.
Landini's in Old Town is so so much better.
Waiter upsold everyone's order saying an appetizer or entre was too small to share - so arrogant...then after a $400 dinner for 4 they hinted us to leave at 930PM when the place was empty... wait staff obviously wanted to go home.
Fantastic job by the entire staff
