Zeffirelli’s is excellent Italian food in old town Herndon.
Best Italian in NoVA! We go here as much as possible and were thrilled to have it back open for inside and outside dining last week. Pablo is the most amazing waiter. The food is outstanding, wine list great and service all around so good! Can't wait to go back!
Wonderful staff, and amazing food choices. It’s authentic Italian and I couldn’t be happier. Prices are a s little steep but overall a great experience! 10/10 would recommend!
Great meal..... as always.
The Italian Wedding soup is delicious!
The homemade pasta is amazing.
I would come here at least once a week, if I could.
This restaurant knows what hospitality and great food means.
The food and the service were outstanding as usual! We always love coming to Zeffirelli's!
Nice facility, nearly great food, great service, great atmosphere.
5 stars for Zeffirelli! Outstanding service. Very prompt, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious! Even the starter bread was great. Will definitely come back again soon!
Always a wonderful experience! The food and service is first class.
Disappointed in the dish I ordered: Shrimp, scallops, calamari over pasta in white wine sauce. Received 1 shrimp and 1 scallop. It was mostly pasta and handful of calamari. I said something to our waiter. He said that was what they normally serve for lunch. Nothing done. My clients meal was fine, but I left w bad impression.
Went to Zeffirelli's Saturday night for my husband's birthday and I can't say enough about the experience!! Absolutely the best meal we've had in years. We each had the Lobster and seafood combo pasta with the Diablo sauce which was superbly prepared. We went with the waiter's recommendation for our wine and it was the perfect pairing. The tiramisu was decadent yet light and the service was amazing. All in all a wonderful evening and a memorable meal. We'll return soon.
Never disappoints. The food was wonderful. I had the lobster tail with assorted sea food special.
And my girlfriend had the veal. Clams casino and buffalo mozzarella for appetizers. If I lived with n VA I would eat there every week-probably twice. Wendy was a new server for us and she was delightful. We learned of the loss of the former host and send his family our sympathy. Jeff got us seated promptly and even stopped by to make sure everything was fine. My favorite place to eat of all time
Excellent food. Dined with family. The fish was excellent and so were the pastas. High caliber food! Great service. The staff was available but never crowded the table.
Incredible service and welcome from one of the owners, Jeff. He took time to share good stories and introduce us to some of their favorite dishes. What a treat!
Zefferelli's is a little pricey but the food is excellent and so is the service. We very much enjoyed the ambiance too. It was a Wednesday night so that might have lent to the quiet dining room, however, the linens; drapes; and furnishings probably help even at busy times.
Once again, everything was great! I have been here several times in my business travels and I‘ve never had a bad experience. The service is outstanding and so professional. Never have a bad thing to say.
Phenomenal dining experience! Great wine selection too!
Great food and service as always.
It is very expensive for good food. It should be at least -$10 less for everything on their menu
Reservation through open table was easy. Our reservation was ready. The service and food was outstanding
Such a great experience! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a friendly staff, and amazing authentic Italian food.
Outstanding dinner and it was Valentines Day and extremely busy but the service and food were perfect! Our waiter, Pablo, is the best you will find around! The Italian menu is excellent and they will make any adjustments you ask for. The wine list is also great! We will be back!
The service was terrible. I had to ask for a wine list and try to catch our waiter every time I needed something. I tried to order an appetizer, and the waiter wouldn't take the order until we had decided on dinner. The food finally came out and the portions were small but served in large bowls, so it was difficult to eat. I had to transfer the food to smaller plates, and ask a waiter several times to take the empty plates off of our table. The entrees came out and they were awful. The lobster ravioli tasted like it came out of a box, and the salmon my boyfriend ordered had no flavor at all and was very dry. Not impressed at all, especially because it's pricey and stuffy in there. Would not recommend.
Zeffirelli’s is routinely a gem of a restaurant. Great service and outstanding food. It’s a bit cramped when it’s busy, which is a testament to what draws people to pamper themselves for an evening meal out. We love it!
Was very disappointed in the overall experience,, which may have been due to Valentines Day, because we were packed in like sardines. My husband and I have decided to make this a lunch place and no longer a dinner date. Food was mediocre but they do have a great wine list.
Zeffirelli’s was fantastic. Unfortunately they had no record of reservations through opentable
Excellent again.. we. One here every year for valentines
Absolutely amazing. The food and service were excellent!
The food was outstanding. I had swordfish. It was terrific. The service was excellent.
We were given a great table in the window for my birthday. Food excellent as usual.
Hadn't visited Zeffirelli in about 10 years - had a fabulous dinner and outstanding service!
Enjoyed the grilled veal chop!
Zeffirelli's is a hidden gem!
While the food was good the service was probably the worst I’ve seen in years. Not welcoming at all and very unfriendly.
Perfect location to celebrate our anniversary, food was amazing and the service was outstanding👍🏼
Absolutely outstanding food, wine and service! The best Italian in the area. The manager, Jeff, treats the customers like guests in his own home by going around and talking with customers and making sure they are enjoying their meal. Our server, Pablo, is so knowledgeable about all of the food and wine and makes excellent recommendations. We have already made another reservation for February because we had such a great experience. My husband is gluten free and they have several good choices - again recommendations by Pablo. My chicken picatta was great and the mussels as an appetizer so fresh and tasty!
Unfortunately the quality of the food has gone down substantially since we were last here, 2 yrs. ago. Chicken Picatta was not even browned, there were maybe 6 capers on it and the lemon sauce tasted like condensed cream of chicken soup. There were 5 green beans, 1 slice of carrot and a tablespoon scoop of dry polenta which were my “side of veggies”. Shrimp scampi had no flavor, you could tell shrimp had been frozen, and the pasta under it was way over cooked to point of being mushy. Crime brûlée was cold and hard. For the prices they charge it just is not worth it. Spacing is also very crammed, and room is noisy.
Always great! Food never disappoints! Highly recommend!
Great food and service as usual. Veal chop is the best you’ll find anywhere.
