Great job at social distancing diners. Great service!
We celebrated our anniversary, and had a wonderful evening at Zeffirelli. Pablo was our waiter and he gave us VIP service. We absolutely love this restaurant!
Amazing service and food
Great food. Great service. Great attention to detail. Highly recommend!
Zeffirelli's has been our favorite restaurant in the area for over 25 years now. They are consistently excellent!
Haven’t been there in over 10 years and it was great to see the same great food and service. Only minor complaint would have been the slightly over cooked lobster in my seafood pasta dish. Will definitely be back soon.
Fantastic as always. We’ve never had a bad experience here.
We have been dining at Zeffirelli's for years. Wanted to post a review to help others during this uncertain time. Food was amazing as usual. The fish special was perfectly cooked and my wife's pasta was delicious. They have implemented measures to keep everyone safe and comfortable. Tables where they actually sit people are 6 feet apart. All employees are wearing masks. They even have some outdoor seating out front at the moment. We strongly recommend visiting for a meal! Even if you want take out.
A nice place for a special evening. They are handling social distancing very well.
Always so great to visit this restaurant. The entire staff, especially Pablo, are excellent and so professional! The appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts are fabulous! We always enjoy a long relaxing meal. Fantastic calamari, mussels, veal, chicken, seafood, caprese and more! Excellent wine list also!
One of the nicest, if not the nicest restaurants in old town Herndon. Not a chain but individual service and food specialties. A little on the pricey side for some orders but worth it if you wan to have a special night out with someone special.
Everything was fantastic!
Phenomenal staff, exquisite food and overall fine dining experience.
Anne V, the server added so much to the already excellent meal. When the food and the service is top notch, it’s an truly memorable event. She knew, and offered great suggestions, was very attentive. Great night.
Wonderful typical Italian dining with white table cloth, and an excellent red wine recommended. Food was excellent. It was my wife’s birthday. It was a wonderfully tasty, and pleasant experience. Highly recommend.
Good food/service, but the decor could use an update.
Great food, great experience , never disappointed
It was amazing the food was great the servers were awesome the environment was very warm. Overall great experience
Family get together and as always this place was impeccable ! Amazing service and kindness, amazing foods and drinks, the ambiance is amazing I feel like I’m in Italy when I’m there! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Best food I’ve ever had everrrr!
Always delicious. Always feel well-taken care of by the staff. If nothing on the menu is catching your eye, just tell Pablo (my waiter) the types of things you like, and he'll have the chef whip something up for you! Pablo is also great at picking out wines...
When in the neighborhood, Zeffrellli is the restaurant of choice. You will not be disappointed.
The food was pretty good but does use normal restaurant time saving products. Highly respected in the community. The wait staff was a little crude at times when we were looking for $$$$ level service. The main waiter made our dinner better with his little added benefits here and there. We may return one day but not this weekend. We certainly understand why they are a local favorite and do recommend trying it out for yourself.
The food and service was superb! Unlike other restaurants, Zeffirelli is able to mix and match that favorite protein with a sauce or pasta to meet your needs. Totally enjoyed the food and sauces. Clam casino had to be cleaned with bread to enjoy the delicious sauce.
Food was very good and the service was as excellent as it always is. It was good to get back to the restaurant.
Great food and wine, quiret, great service too.
This place was a pleasant surprise as we went out for dinner during the CoronaVirus .
Very clean and friendly.
I suggest less sauce on the veal chop but, personal preference.
Amazing authentic Italian food and wine!! The very best service by Pablo and the entire team! Lamb chops great, ravioli, mussels, calamari - all super! Always ending with such good coffee and dessert! They are also doing a very good job with COVID safety.
I decided to take my wife here for our one year wedding Anniversary thinking it would be a romantic and authentic Italian restaurant. Food was sub par. We ordered the fried calamari and zucchini and it was very bland. We also ordered cheese sticks and when those came out they were cold on the inside and not melted. I had took one bite of it and ask the waiter to send it back to have fresher ones. When they brought them back they gave me the same cheese stick I took a bite out of and they were saturated in oil. The reviews seemed good so we decided to check it out but unfortunately were let down.
Fantastic food and service. Top notch crew. We have never been disappointed over the years. Linguini with clams, grilled/charred octopus appetizer. Don't forget the cappuccinos to top it off.
It had been a while...but we will be back sooner! Choose this for an Anniversary celebration. Excellent octopus appetizer special that was amazing! Great food! Great service. Great drinks. A treasure in downtown Herndon. Thank you for a lovely dinner celebration!
The food and service were simply outstanding.
Amazing authentic Italian food with exceptional service every time!! Pablo and the Team are so great and always make us feel special when we are there! Best chicken francaise and veal chop as well as wonderful mussels and calamari! Excellent wine list also! We are regulars and highly recommend this restaurant!
Service is friendly and professional. Food is great. My "go to" restaurant in Herndon.
awesome as usual. service was attentive and offered great recommendations
A wonderful dinner with great service. Pablo knew they menu and was able to recommend wines that would pair. Great experience, we will return!
Always top notch service !!
This was our first time here, and we will definitely be back. Food was excellent, as was the service! Highly recommend!
Zeffirelli’s food, service, cleanliness and friendliness was top notch! This was our first time here and a very quick favorite.
Definitely suggest this place if you want to have Italian and upscale services. Pablo took good care of us as well as his assistant too. Zeffirellis was suggested to me and im doing the same!
Visited the restaurant on Friday, July 10 and it was great! The food was good, wine was better and the service was excellent! Highly recommended!
