Excellent choices of gluten free pasta with many sauce options. My daughter has Celiac Disease and we were pleased with her dish as well as all of our options. JD was the host and very helpful and friendly. Very nice servers and ambiance. Highly recommend.

Went here for dinner with a party of 4. We were thankfully seated in a smaller dining room away from the noisy one (husband is hard-of-hearing and the noise is always a factor). Obsequious waiter had a bit of an accent that was a little...More

Zeffirelli makes even the most low-key meal a special experience. Amazing food, professional service, extra touches. Dependably wonderful.

Our family has dined at Ziffirelli on special occasions over the last 15 years. The food and service has always been excellent, and remains consistent today. The signature veal chop was moved to a special during this visit, but is well worth a visit. The...More

Perhaps we're spoiled coming from the Northeast, we were told that there weren't any great Italian restaurants in the area and we'll continue to search. Zeffirelli's was a decent meal but nothing out of the ordinary. The service was very good but the decor was...More

This is a great little restaurant in Herndon, VA. We took a cab from the Hyatt Regency Dulles and it's not far. Italian male waiters, nice music ( not poundingly loud or intrusive), good service and wonderful food. Good wine. Really enjoyed this restaurant. It's...More

On the plus side, we were able to be seated promptly on a Saturday night, with no reservation. The food was very good. I had veal scallopini marsala, and my wife had shrimp scampi, for our main courses. The prices are reasonable. On the minus...More
