Haven’t been since just before Pandemic hit. It was wonderful to enjoy this fine restaurant once again. The owner, Sergio, always goes around to the tables to make sure everyone is satisfied and enjoying themselves.

We had tickets for Wolf Trap and wanted to have a good dinner before the performance. A friend recommended Bonaroti. We were four and all had a different entree. All of us couldn’t be more pleased with our selection. I had the scallops with risotto and it was delicious!

This is now officially our favorite Italian restaurant. Always an extensive list of specials. Service from Chris is exceptional. The Osso Bucco is the best I've had. Try the shrimp calimari special it's really tasty.

We'll be back.

Classic old-fashioned high-end Italian restaurant. Wonderful selection of very well prepared food, outstanding service, a real throwback to a different era -- which I found refreshing and enjoyable.

The restaurant is always first class. The wait-staff are all knowledgeable and friendly. The food is perfect ! There are not enough good things to say about this restaurant. We dined on a Tuesday night. The owner wasn't there, but things ran as smoothly as always. We just missed the amaretto cordial he usually brings to the table !!!

Food and service was excellent, a very popular dining spot in Vienna. Homemade pasta was delicious. Crowded even on a Monday evening, a little loud for our taste though.

Except for the dining tent out front, the pandemic has no apparent impact. An extensive menu remains with their printed menu, an extra insert and the always numerous daily specials recited tableside. Sergio has retained a well trained, attentive staff. My wife had one of several seafood specials of the day - dover sole plated tableside by Sergio himself. He was quite busy that night as we observed many diners trying it as well. You cannot go wrong choosing Bonaroti for a special birthday or anniversary celebration!

We have been there 4 times now and we have a hard time justifying going to any other Italian restaurant. My wife is Italian and cooks wonderful food. But even she says that Bonarati's is a cut above anything else. The prices are high--but you get a ton of value for the price. I've paid equally elsewhere and felt like I got ripped off. I leave Bonarati's feeling like a spent a good chunk of change and got every penny's worth.

The service as always is impeccable. The food as always, perfectly cooked. Wine list is a bit pricey but.... The owner's attention to detail is amazing. We never felt rushed at all. This is , in my opinion the best restaurant on the east coast.

Classic Italian restaurant. This is our favorite place to go for classic Italian food. It’s a bit old fashioned looking, but if you don’t mind excellent service and delicious food, you should go there! Everything is prepared well. It’s not trendy, just good.

We had to wait a while after our reservation time, but the staff was incredibly apologetic and the service was phenomenal. We were a party of 6, so ordered a wide variety of appetizers and entrees, and every dish was cooked and seasoned to perfection and beautifully plated. Bonarati served up an amazing dining experience at an incredible value.

A local treasure. A storied restaurant in Vienna with an excellent reputation. Service is excellent, the ambiance is a bit dated but appropriate, and the food is high quality, though portion sizes vary greatly by dish. The cost is relatively high which tends to influence the clientele. Not loud, few children, etc.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and are willing to accommodate any order. I was torn between two dishes and they were able to make a half order as an appetizer of one so I could have both. The food was delicious as always and the desserts are homemade and amazing.
