I have frequented Zeffirelli's on several special occasions for an Anniversary and Birthday meal. The entree's are a bit pricey but well worth the visit. I personally like the lasagna and the Ravioli di Aragosta. The atmosphere is romantic with candlit tables adorned with fresh flowers and white linen tablecloths. A very special night out in Old Town Herndon!

Super service. Listened to what we wanted and were attentive without hovering. Always great food and kind of cool old school NY eatery

Had heard of this establishment many times when I lived in the Washington, DC area, but never had the opportunity to visit. Returned for a visit and glad I made a point of dining there with friends. A very nice and elegant Italian cuisine restaurant. Good wine selections to complement the very well presented dishes. Staff knowledgeable and able to... More

We went on Halloween night and the food was amazing. Service was a little slow, and the restaurant wasn't busy at all. Although, we were seated quickly it took over 10-15 mins to get service to order drinks, appetizers, or meals. The server left in the middle of telling us the specials and took an additional 10 or so minutes... More

This place is definitely worth a visit. The server and manager were both very attentive to guests. It did take us a while to be seated for our reservation (about ten minutes), but I didn't really mind. The lasagna was very good. Not a place that I will go to very often (due to expense), but definitely a great choice... More

Great restaurant in downtown Herndon and located a block from Elden Street. Very nice decor with great food and friendly waiters. This is a more fine dining restaurant with linen table clothes and napkins, very 1920/1930s type building with dark woods. The lamb chops are excellent, as is the Lasagne, and other dishes. But then again, almost everything I have... More

A couple of years ago, Zeffirelli bought Da Dominica in Vienna, that at the time had the best veal chop in the world. They have cloned the recipe and now there are two restaurants in the Northern Virginia/DC area that offer one of the best dishes anywhere. The ambiance is really nice, smaller and more updated than Da and the... More

Restaurant was highly recommended to my lunch companion by a local politician. Turned out to be fantastic. Had a salad and the pasta with shrimp. Best pasta I'd had in months. Service was excellent. Would like to try it for an evening dinner. hope to return again.
