Franco and Noe Landini are the proud hosts of Landini Brothers restaurant. Located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, and close to the Potomac River, Landini Brothers is a well-established landmark in Northern Virginia. It has been serving northern Italian food in the traditional Tuscan style since it opened in 1976. Franco's annual visits to his family and friends in Tuscany provide him with ample opportunity to learn about the latest advances in Tuscan cuisine—knowledge he brings home for the dining pleasure of restaurant guests. Come join us for brunch! Sunday at 11:30am to 3:00pm.

"The veal here should not be missed! Whether you prefer Veal piccata, Marsala, or whatever: it is always fresh and tender. The seafood is equally good.
The service is very on point. We had speedy refills, plate clearing, and a lot of attention. This is one of my favorites!

Richmond is the second location of Chef Mike Isabella’s acclaimed Italian-inspired restaurant. Originally opened in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Graffiato offers hand-rolled pastas, artisanal pizzas and small plates. Chef Isabella’s seasonal small plates are inspired by the food he grew up eating in New Jersey prepared by his Italian-American grandmother. With heavy influence from Chef Isabella’s Mediterranean and Latin culinary training, Graffiato is anything but a traditional Italian eatery. Roasted potato gnocchi, chicken thighs with pepperoni sauce, charred octopus and roasted cauliflower are a few of the signature dishes you will find on the menu. Much of the wine and beer are sourced domestically, and often from the East Coast. Look for unique cocktails, domestic wine and Prosecco served straight from a tap.

"It seems that Graffoato's snuch up on Richmond, and took them by surpise as there was no crowding yesterday when we arrived for lunch. The sleek modern interior was pleasing! I was thrilled with the roasted Brussels sprouts with pancetta. Al;so, the Goodfellas Meatball pizza had a memeorable zing."

"I am from New Orleans, and when I need to seek out a little nostalgic hometown food, The Warehouse Bar and Grill is my go to. It is the best Southern cooking in the whole metro Washington, DC area.
I especially recommend the she crab soup. It is heaven in a spoon: just the right amount of spice with large lumps of quality crab.

"You may want to look elsewhere for a gourmet dining experience, but in the meantime, this will do for a more Kid- friendly French experience in an unpretentious, friendly setting.
Those in our group enjoyed the onion soup, the French bread, the lamb, the mushroom risotto. Those in our group did not crow about the boeuf bourgignon, nor the quail.
The wine list is very moderate.

"If you have any appetite whatsoever, don't come here. The squash soup came by thimbles, the salads came by half portions, and the fish looked like a sardine. I left really hungry."

"I cannot get over the taste sensation of the incredibly fresh, tender as a baby's kiss, tomato sauce dusted redfish. I need to immediately go back next week and order more! And when I do, I will want more of the spicy Bhindi Okra. Multiple layers of flavors are still dancing on my tongue."
