About Us

Formal Dining Service and Candlelit Tables

Since opening in 1991, Zeffirelli Ristorante Italiano has been established as a fine tradition in historic Herndon. The 100 year old building adds character and ambiance to Zeffirelli’s dining experience. Our formal service, candlelit tables, exquisite Italian cuisine, and fine wines set an incomparable atmosphere for our patrons.

Authentic Italian Dessert Options

And don’t forget to leave room for some authentic Italian desserts like: Siciliani Cannelloni, Chocolate, Vanilla or Hazelnut Gelato, or Lemon or Wildberry Sorbet from Italy, or Mixed Berries with Zabaglione. We have options for every sweet tooth with Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake and Homemade Tiramisu.

Ask About our Famous Off the Menu Entrees

Try our famous veal chop – 16 ounces of fine thick cut chops, marinated in tasty spices and pan-seared to perfection.  Seafood is one of our specialties and many customers return for our Linguini Cleopatra – a magnificent combination of lobster, shrimp and sea scallops prepared in a light champagne-cream sauce and served atop fresh homemade pasta. To complement your meal, we offer an unsurpassed selection of fine regional Italian wines.

Charming Downtown Location

Located in the one of the most historically rich areas of Herndon, Virginia, we offer a scrumptious selection of classic Tuscan Italian cuisine for a quiet lunch or a night of elegant dining. We have a phenomenal selection of wine and spirits and have private party spaces available for your next event. The charm and romance of dining in the beautifully restored restaurant in downtown Herndon is unmatched. We hope to see you soon!
