We have been to Bonarati many times and it was great this time, as always. Sergio is a fine host.
Love, love this restaurant! Food is always superb as is the service.
My wife and I always enjoy the food and service
I highly recommend this restaurant
First time dining. Nice experience and I would go back. Very knowledgeable staff.
Another excellent birthday celebration at Bonaroti. The food, service, and attention to detail are fantastic. Sergio also provides best veal chop on earth!
Classy place with the best authentic Italian food. Staff always professional and friendly. Sergio runs a top tier restaurant best all around. We love going there and would recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing dining experience.
I have been there three times for lunch. There are not many diners there at lunch so it is very quiet. The food is exceptional and the service is great.
First time I'd been here at lunch time -- what a lovely setting for a friend's birthday lunch. The wait staff is always so professional and attentive. Great lunch spot!
Excellent service, atmosphere, and food. The perfect spot for a nice dinner.
We have celebrated special occasions with Sergio and his team for 3 decades and they continue to over deliver. Very Italian, very good and very special. How many restaurants do you know that survive more than 30 years?
Excellent service, outstanding Italian homemade pasta dishes. Osso Bucco was excellent. Bread was delicious real crusty Italian along with house made focaccia. Calamari was fresh and tender. Dessert was good too! This is actually the best Italian restaurant I’ve been to in this area!
Constantly fantastic! Recommend not even looking at menu because daily specials are spectacular
The pastas are fantastic!!!
This dinner celebrated my 80th birthday and Ristorante Bonaroti, Vienna, VA came through with another very outstanding celebration for my wife and I. The anti pasta was terrific as was the rack of lamb. A trio of waiters sang happy birthday Scott.
My little girl 9th birthday, she felt in love by the age of six with the restaurant service and the authentic Italiano cuisine. We appreciate the attention,
We had a lovely dinner at quiet table in the corner. Service is excellent. After dinner Amarone was a lovely surprise!
We dined here before our Wolf Trap show, as it’s only about 10 min away and this is a jewel hidden in a small shopping center. The best Italian food I’ve had in the DMV area, at least since AVs and Pines of Rome closed. Great pasta fagioli soup and cannelloni. My husband had their special cream of asparagus soup, very fresh, and excellent veal saltimbocca. I wished he had shared more! Imported gelato for dessert was a nice finish. We will be back! Service also excellent.
Ristorante Bonaroti was the perfect choice for an intimate (10 people) birthday celebration. The 80 year old birthday boy wanted Italian cuisine. The food was traditional enough to feed his preference, yet innovative enough for the rest of us foodies! The wine list could meet anyone's needs. Given our average ages, having a quiet restaurant was unique. The only issue I had was the specials menu, which was fantastic, was too long to follow with only the waiters description.
Generally, an excellent choice for a special occasion!
I have not been to Bonaroti‘s in years. And this trip did not disappoint. Service and food was outstanding as usual.
Excellent food and service but dining room was a bit loud
Service was attentive and friendly. Menu offered many options and food was well prepared. It was our anniversary and the waiter offered us a complimentary dessert. A very nice evening.
Celebrating friends engagement
My wife and I have dined here on many occasions and it is excellent every time!
We arrived Sunday for dinner before concert at Wolf Trap. The staff was very accommodating in serving us in a timely manner so that we could make the concert on time. Next visit we will plan to make it a more leisurely dinner. The half price wine menu on Sunday was a nice surprise. We will visit again.
Really enjoyed everything about this visit, from the attentive and friendly service to the elaborate menu to the amazing flavors!
Sergio the owner was not there and it showed.. been a customer since he opened in 1981 i believe..always sergio would bring out parmigiana to nibble on.. i had a party of 11 and was told that service is only for expensive wine! I bought 6 carafes of wine.. had a veal chop to die for
Service was good till entrees were done then waiters got lost for 20 minutes.. i got irritated..almost left
Then got white mousse cake as i have done for almost 40 years.. was different.dry .. sergio or his son would have never allowed my issues.. but overall one of my top two restaurants.. sorry sergio but they need u there! U make things perfect
My husband and I went for our 47th wedding anniversary. We were seated at a lovely table and each server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We each started with a drink and split a salad. My husband had one of the nightly specials and I had something off the main menu. Both were very good and most important for my husband his meal was served hot....doesn't happen all the time at other places. We were presented with a special anniversary desert which was amazing and after that, we were brought liquor glasses of Amerato with small biscotti cookies. It was wonderful. We felt like we were valued diners and this does not always happen so this was a great experience for our anniversary.
The best Italian food on this side of the Atlantic. When you go, take your time and enjoy! Sergio and his staff will take exceptional care of you.
It was great!!
Explosions of flavor; the way Italian food should be. Old school ambience and service. Slightly worn, accoustic tile ceiling, waiters who've been there 20 years. No misfires on any of our dishes. Highly recommended!
I brought my mother here for her 95th birthday because I knew the owner and staff would spoil her. They did. She loved the food, service, and memories of her birthday at this very special place.
Four of us spent over two hours for dinner not because we wanted a diner that was quite that leisurely but because the service we received was very slow. While the menu had an appealing variety of meals, it even took a long time to be given menus. It seemed that many of the other tables had customers who were repeat customers who were known to the staff and that they received quicker service. The food was good but not great. It would have been nice if the menu had indicated that the main meals came with a vegetable and potato (or if the server had told us this) so that we wouldn't have ordered side dishes of vegetables which were not really needed.
One of the best-kept secrets in Northern Virginia. Fantastic Italian cuisine with attentive, welcoming staff and quiet elegance. Local and national celebrities know and love it-don't miss out on a top-flight restaurant experience.
Great people great food
My wife and I tried Ristorante Bonaroti for the first time this evening and we were both very impressed! We were taken to our table by the owner and continued to receive excellent dinner service. The food similarly did not disappoint and we enjoyed every last bite. At the conclusion of our dinner we were bid farewell by the owner and thanked for dining at his restaurant. We could tell that the owner prides himself in his restaurant and the whole experience made it an easy choice to return in the near future.
We have been loyal customers here for nealy 30 years.
In our view, one of the very finest restaurants in all of the DC area.
We love genuine Italian cuisine and this restaurant is , by far the very best in this catagory.
In fact, it continues to somehow to always improve.
The owner , Sergio , is always there to make sure, everything is always perfect.
No place better!
Classic and classy Italian restaurant! The service, the food, the entire experience was all one could hope for.
Outstanding!! We recently moved out of the area and were in VA visiting. Bonarati was our first choice of restaurants.
The food was really good, and the menu is pretty extensive as is the wine list. Service was first rate.
