Fabulous restaurant. Beautiful. Attentive staff. Delicious food. With all the construction around Tyson area it's a bit tricky to get too...until you establish the route...then quite easy. The historic access has been eliminated by the construction. Definitely worth the mild degree of effort to get there

First time there and had the Veal chop which was great. Want to try the more traditional Italian dishes next time. The corkage fee I thought was high.

The outside is nondescript (it’s in a very old strip mall with a sign maker and other semiindustrial businesses, but don’t let that stop you. Great food, excellent service, and inexpensive for what you get. Definitely worth a try.

It was pretty crowded and somewhat noisy. Table was in a corner, which I normally wouldn’t like but in this case probably afforded a bit of privacy. Food was very good. Waitress was effective, if not the best “table side” manner

Very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable staff. Thanks to Marie and Elizabeth. Perfect seating - cozy booth in the Dining room. Valentine's Day menu - Appetizers and entrees well presented and prepared. Carpaccio, Cleopatria, and Porcini. Quality selection of wines. 2017 Ripasso - 97 points. Enjoyable evening.

We enjoyed dinner mainly because it is a very pretty restaurant and lovely ambiance. Our food was good but overpriced. The service was not good. After taking our initial orders, the waiter never came back to see if we wanted another drink, to see how our food was, or anything like that. We told him at the end that we would have ordered another round of drinks had he come by sooner, and he seemed very unconcerned and unapologetic, and asked us then if we wanted another drink and we told him it was too late for that since we were about to leave. So we were not at all happy with the service.

Nice restaurant but there was a specialized menu that wasn’t publicized in advanced, so the menu options were limited

It was Valentines Day and it was the worst service I have ever experienced. Unfriendly and unwelcoming staff. It took a long time to get menus and then we waited over 30 minutes just to get the bottle of wine we ordered. The waiter seemed bothered that we wanted coffee after our meal. We would have ordered dessert but did not want to waste more time and money. We will not return.

Not the greatest on Valentine’s Day for dinner. For our 6:15 reservation we were seated right away, albeit not in a great location. The service was polite but very slow. We ended up getting appetizers, dinner and desert along with a bottle of wine. The whole experience, and by no fault of ours, went on for 2 1/2 hours. Seemed that lots of folks in the restaurant had similar long experiences. And the prices were rather steep than the usual prices they have durning normal service.

Probably my best Valentine's Day Meal ever!!! Lobster Ravioli was AMAZING!!! Everyone must try it. Tiramisu was perfect, not too soggy like other places.

We dined here Christmas Eve, so take that into account, but this was overall a very poor experience. Waters not refilled, ingredients mediocre, entrees took forever to come out and were lukewarm when they did, one of them turned out to be wrong, and wrong in that they’d subbed a dish double the cost for what we actually ordered. We pointed this out several times but accepted the error because we didn’t want to wait another 20 minutes for a replacement; we were charged for the more expensive dish. Food was meh and pricey for the quality. Seems like a place that must have had its heyday 20 years ago but most folks who’ve eaten at one of the similarly priced contemporary Italian places in the area will likely be disappointed.

We went to da Domenico after not having been there for about 20 years. We were delighted when we were served outstanding food with incredibly great service. We will definitely go back, and I would recommend this place to anybody who likes very good and authentic Italian cooking. And the service was excellent!

Our dinner was fantastic - I had the veal saltimbocca and my friends had the special ravioli - the dishes were expertly prepared and delicious. The service was impeccable. Plus that, the tiramisu was to die for! We try to make it to Da Domenico whenever we're in town.

This is the best Italian restaurant in Northern Virginia and one of the best in the Washington, DC area. The food is excellently prepared and the taste is spectacular! The service is excellent and always ready to accommodate your needs. With all the construction going on in Tyson’s Corner area, the restaurant is a little difficult to get to, but well worth the effort.

The veal chop that is supposed to be there specialty and the best in town was tough and fatty and was very disappointing. Things have really gone down hill there from what is used to be!
