I read a few reviews with complaints about service so I was a bit worried ahead of dinner. However, I found the service to be outstanding and we didn’t encounter any problems. Very nice bartender and waitress. Also, the food was fantastic. Just the right portions and appropriately priced. Lots of noise but festive and fun.

Server wasn’t too attentive focused on the other tables. It took five minutes+ for him to get our order. The other servers were more aware, there was a server with glasses who was more attentive and asked if we had ordered and let our server know we had not. Noise level was loud too sat near a family with kids

The wait staff was extremely attentive and the food was delicious. We both started with the gazpacho which was very refreshing on a warm July evening. We also got the specials. I ordered the veal chop and my date ordered the salmon. Both were great.

My wife and I really love this place. We live a couple of hours away but always try to come here when we are in Alexandria. On this trip we came in for our anniversary but we did not have a lot of time so we just got appetizers and drinks. As usual the food did not disappoint. Very fresh ingredients and great flavors. The wine pores were very generous which was very nice on a $15 glass of wine. My wife had the sautéed shrimp appetizer and loved it. I had the tuna appetizer which was good but I felt a little on the smaller side for a $24 appetizer. But certainly quality ingredients. We also had a very fresh tomato and mozzarella salad. The staff were very kind and also brought us a tiramisu with a candle for anniversary.
It did seem like prices have gone up since we were at the restaurant last time, but I guess we’re seeing that everywhere right now. Overall great experience and we look forward to coming back when we have more time savor the wonderful dishes.

The food and service were outstanding. Unfortunately the noise level was extreme particularly from a nearby table which significantly took away from our enjoyment of the evening. We had difficulty hearing our waiter and it was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation at our table that everyone could hear.

Landini Brothers has been a go to location for celebrations for a long time now but this birthday celebration was very disappointing. The building is charming, and the food is good but despite having two waiters that seemed to be waiting on us the service was slow. We ordered cocktails when we arrived and would have liked to order more but only had the once cocktail all evening because no one came over so that we could order more. When we were done eating it was oblivious we were done eating yet no one came to clear the plates and ask if we wanted dessert. In an attempt to make it very oblivious we were done with the meal I stacked all the places up on a corner of the table and it still took someone almost 10 minutes to clear the table and ask if we wanted dessert. The evening could have been so a lot better had we had a server that paid attention to us. We were not asking to be treated like royalty just the basic service one would expect when dining out.

This has been our go-to spot for the last 1.5 years. We found out about Landini over the pandemic and just have been in love with some of their dishes. Our favorites are the grilled squid, truffle mushroom risotto, penne with arrabbiata sauce, to name a few. Their daily specials tend to be great! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a good quality Italian food.

Wait staff was mechanical and not very welcoming. Made to wait for 15-20 minutes to be seated. Made to wait for another 10 to order. And then made to wait for an hour to get our food. Food was…meh; kind of bland, and the heat distribution was odd. We were a party of 6 so we tried a variety of things (veal seems to be the best thing on the menu, but not by a lot). In my opinion, there are better - tastier, cheaper, and more caring - fine Italian cuisine options in the area (Il Porto is right next door and is a much more deserving experience).

The weather was nice though.
