I wish they would put Lamb Shank or Osso Bucco back on the menu.

As always the service and food were wonderful. We are never disappointed when we done here.
Attentive wait staff and servers. Timely food delivery. Excellent ambience . Complimentary Birthday dessert. Clean restrooms. Delicious food.
Great experience for 4.
Excellent food and service!
Absolutely wonderful evening, great Italian with lots of character, and excellent service.
Very good food. Prices on the upper end though. Ambience was okay.
Great food, service and ambiance
Another excellent meal to celebrate our 4 years together at our favorite Italian restaurant.
I am not a gourmand, but I do like veal piccata and always try it when I go to an Italian restaurant for the first time. I've never had one as good as at Zeffirelli.
We were celebrating a birthday and the staff was wonderful and our waiter, Pablo, was great. It was a very special evening.
We Loved it All ! The Restaurant was Beautiful ! The Service was Impeccable 💗The Food was Magnificent !! We will definitely come again ! We were Celebrating our 33rd Wedding Anniversary with Special Friends ! Thank you For a Very Memorable Evening 💕
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday, we had a great time.
This was our first time at Zeffirelli and it was for our anniversary. It was such a great experience. Our waitress was AMAZING and the food exceeded our expectations. It was a great choice for a special occasion. My husband had the lobster ravioli and I had the veal ravioli. Both were delicious. We are so happy that we tried something new and will definitely be back!
The food was great. The staff was attentive. Monday night is a great time to dine when they were less busy.
Another great meal at Zefferelli's. I had a veal dish this time. It was excellent - tender and moist. The brandy cream sauce and mushrooms were done just right.
Food & service top notch! Only issue — after noting in the reservation our anniversary, we were sat in middle of dining area v. perimeter intimate seating. Had to ask to be moved to a more intimate table. Notwithstanding, wish we had dined there much sooner. A great dining experience!
We celebrated a birthday at Zeffirelli, and we were treated like royalty. We had a fairly large party, and without even requesting, we were given a beautiful, private area. The service was perfect. The wait staff was friendly, and the food as always, was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Excellent food with excellent service. Herdon's own fine dining experience
Excellent service, affordable delicious food. We love Zeffirelli's!
Saw the building from outside while I was driving by and thought wow this place looks like the food will be great. I am not a fan of Italian food and my fiance usually has to bribe me to get Italian. Immediately I thought "I gotta bring him here as a surprise" and as I assumed the food was excellent!!! The ambiance was nice and wasn't so loud. The only thing with my experience that I didn't like was that we felt our server was judging us like " you don't belong here" he didn't smile not once. Not very personable. He was a great server and got us everything we needed but I wish he had a little bit more of a welcoming feel. But because the service was very good i still left a great tip.
My go to for Italian!!
Everything we ordered was fantastic. The caprese ravioli was unique and memorable and the the veal piccata was fork tender and delicious. Eggplant parm was perfection per my daughter. Portion size was also very good - plenty to eat but not too much. Also the food was piping hot which we all appreciated. Our waiter was very nice and engaging and legit- he was from Puglia. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and service every time we have eaten there.
Service was top notch! Food could have been a bit better, however I will give another chance and stop by for another visit soon.
First time at this restaurant but it won’t be the last. Everything impressed from the greeting at the door to the last sip of coffee. All the entrees were done perfectly. There might have been just a bit more calamari and zucchini on our shared appetizer however. We will still make this one of our go-to places for wonderful Italian cuisine.
Pablo, Niko and Lito are great! Best service and food in all of Herndon!
Waitress was outstanding. Really made it a celebration and made sure we all enjoyed the dinner.
Very good Italian restaurant. I have eaten at several high priced highly rated Italian restaurants in DC. This is the best I’ve found. The Tiramisu may be the best I’ve ever had. Excellent food, excellent wine list, all reasonably priced.
We had a great time. Service was excellent. We will go again.
Quaint, intimate restaurant. We took the recommendations of our server and tried her menu suggestions. We enjoyed everything from the wine to the dessert. She was wonderful and lighthearted. Delicious food and we will return.
The food was great and the focaccia was amazing. The staff was wonderful.
Also, they knew how to pronounce my last name and they even spoke Italian. This may not be that important to know but it shows how traditional they are, which contributes to the ambiance.
Great service. Took really good care of us. First visit. Will go back
Food was excellent, and the service was very efficient. The restaurant has a nice Italian motif. All around nice experience.
Great Friday evening dinner! Great Service and very, very good food.
Everything was excellent from the full service bar to the fantastic specials. Every dish was cooked to perfection and the portions were very filling. The wine selection was one of the best I’ve seen from the other sit down Italian restaurants in the area. The service was quick and extremely professional. The grappa selection and quality was better than any other restaurant I have been to. My fiancé and I will definitely be back soon as we are wanting to to make dinner at the restaurant a more frequent experience while we still live in the area.
Service was professional but brusque. Food was excellent. Had the special of fruitte de mare(?) and it was abundant and delicious and fairly priced. Wine selections were very good as well. Can’t wait to return next time I’m by the Dulles airport.
Absolutely delicious food. Great service and friendly people.
