It is easy to go again and again…. Food is fabulous, service is impeccable and the ambiance is quaint and cozy. Family owned and run. We’ve had the same waiter each time over the years. Much better than chain restaurants! Check it out.
Super friendly and comfy.
We are from the Northeast where we are able to have outstanding Italian food. So, our dinner last night was a wonderful surprise. It was better than most other pasta dishes I have had. Everything we had was outstanding. The waitstaff was more than willing to help us decide what to have and we loved it all. Including all the waitstaff who were more than available at any time. And the wine they recommended was also great!! Thank you for an outstanding meal and company!!
We enjoyed a first class experience at Zeffirelli! We are trying out Italian restaurants all around Reston and so far Zeffirelli’s is the best! The ambiance is prefect, the service professional and the food absolutely excellent. Highly recommend!
Food was great as always. This was our first time back since Covid and glad to say it was just we remembered and expected. Highly recommended!
Great food. Great service. It’s our go to place.
We had a delightful evening at Zeffirelli's celebrating a family birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meal, the noise level was low, table was elegantly set with white linens and the service was excellent.
We celebrated our anniversary at Zeffirelli’s and had a wonderful dinner. As always, the food and the service were terrific. The servers always go out of their way to make sure you are pleased with everything. I can’t recommend this restaurant more highly.
They really know Italian! The food was AMAZING and the ambiance was spectacular! Lovely place and the staff are down right friendly and warm!
A local gem, very accomodating for a larger group. The service was top-notch, very attentive without being obtrusive
Delicious food with outstanding service
Very attentive and efficient staff. Very clean and almost elegant room. Food was awesome
The food was excellent. Highly recommend veal chop. The service was great.
Wonderful food! Attentive service! Delightful environment!
Fantastic food and ambiance … as always. Happy Anniversary, Zeffirelli, and thank you for the gift!
Service was good, the wait staff available when needed and everything was promptly served.
Ambiance has an old school charm, and about a 50% occupancy on a Friday night.
Food was ok. Not sure if we just ordered wrong, but the calms casino was not recommended. There were 5 baby clams stuffed with breadcrumbs and the tiniest morsel of clam. I order this pretty frequently and this was by far the least enjoyable I've had. The ravioli was good - very heavy on the pesto cream and salty, but satisfied my hunger. The linguine with clams and cesar salad were both ok, but there is nothing we would reorder.
Nevertheless, a nice evening and would give it another shot in the future and try something other than pasta.
Wonderful food, reminded us of the meals we had in Italy.
Excellent experience all around, although the service started out a bit slow. Had the gamberi and salsicce appetizers to start, then swordfish special for the main. All was perfectly cooked and succulently seasoned. Would definitely go there again.
My wife birthday, the hosts where very educated and professional, the attention to details is amazing, food was great it is our favorite Italian. My hay the grilled shrimp to start and my wife have the house veal shop and I have the seafood over pasta..amazing found. I recommend this place fir any occasion
Excellent service and amazing food. We will be back!
The most enjoyable restaurant experience we have had in a long time. The food was superb and the ambience was charming and romantic. However, the very best part of the experience was the service. Our waiter, Pablo, served us exquisitely, as though we were the only ones there. The Best of the Best! We would definitely recommend Zeffirelli’s to all!
Fabulous food, service and ambience. New to Oakton and loved our dinner- can’t wait to frequent more.
Great service. Touch of Old Italy. Best veal chop in northern Virginia
It was a wonderful experience! It turns out my grandson’s flight was rerouted to bwi instead of Dulles and then it was delayed so my 6:00 reservation was changed from 6 to 7 and then it was even later so we arrived at 8:00. They accommodated me graciously. Saved our table although they were busy and were very solicitous when we finally arrived. On top of that the food and waitress were perfect.
This place never disappoints. We visit at least once a month and it’s always perfect!!!
I love this restaurant, services is A+ the food is delicious one of my favorite Italian!!! I am from Europe and this is very good Italian restaurant
Came up from South Carolina for business. We had a free night and came here for dinner. We came here 30 years ago when it was called the 5&dime. Pablo took care of us. It was simply amazing. Thanks to you for the amazing dinner and experience. One of the best ever!!!!
I loved the chicken alfredo sauce and fettucine, but the chicken was tough and overcooked.
I would have preferred garlic bread instead of the artisan caraway, but that may be the nature of the restaurant's specialization.
The flan they surprised me with (it was my birthday) was indescribably delicious, the most wondrous texture.
Nice cappucino to finish.
Every aspect of our lunch at Zeffirelli’s was outstanding!
Dining here is always a wonderful experience. The service is impeccable. The food phenomenal.
Had a really nice meal. Food and service was very good. We will be back.
Everything was wonderful! The food was amazing and the whole experience was terrific!!
Great environment, great service, great food! The location is wonderful as well.
Such a great experience at this restaurant. The service is impeccable, the food is delicious and the mood is perfect.
Food was very good but COVID shortage of service made it a bit slow, meals should have been served earlier and warmer.
Great food, good service and very nice little restaurant. Parking in the back its easy to park. You need to try this place.
Wonderful meal, service, and atmosphere. Would go back without a doubt.
Pablo was a fantastic captain and guided us to the best menu choices. He was very attentive. The food was superb. We will be back again!
