Comfortable, welcoming cozy atmosphere with good food and fabulous wines. We returned here again for another small family dinner and were happy to find it turning out the quality meals and the excellent service that we always have found to be present. Reservations are a must.

This is a small restaurant full of charm, serving flavorful dishes. We have never been disappointed. The restaurant is on King street in the heart of old town. A great place to stop after a day of shopping or just a fine dinner with your partner or a small party. Recommend getting a reservation ahead of time, especially between 7... More

It is so easy to discover places to eat when you use the trolley down King St in Alexandria, VA. Went there for dinner Monday evening. The food was pretty good, many little rooms, restrooms are up a set of stairs

Arrived just before 6:00 on a cold Friday night. Helped them open the doors, but they made us feel welcome. Given a table at the front window where we could watch the people on King Street. The waiter helped us select a wonderful wine and made suggestions about dinner. The food was outstanding, especially the osso bucco. Even though the... More

Cute Italian place in Old Town. Many standard pasta and met dishes. Decent wine list and prices are overall reasonable. Service is attentive. I was there about a week so for dinner on a Sunday night. Calamari was tender but the breaking was hit or miss on certain pieces. Some crunchy, some soggy. I had the Osso buco which I... More

We made reservation to try based on TA reviews. We were not disappointed. The food, service, and prices were all good. For old towne AX, the prices were ok. The calamari, gnocchi, and lobster bisque were very good. Calamari was a bit salty. The wrapped prosciutto mozzarella salad was incredible. The tomato base that is had with this dish was... More

There are many restaurant choices in Old Town and Geranio is consistently good. While not your typical "red sauce" type of place, the food is well prepared and sophisticated. The service is very professional and friendly. Great for business, friends, or romantic evenings!

On November 16, 2013, my wife, three friends, and I, ate dinner at this restaurant. The food and drinks were delicious, but what made our evening special was the friendly and attentive service provided by our server, Alberto, and his colleagues. There are many dining options in Alexandria, so the details matter. Geranio got the details right. We will patronize... More

We made reservations for 7 on Sunday and were seating in the window so we could enjoy the view of King Street at night. We started with appetizers - mussels for him and calamari for me. Let me back up and say our server... More
