Having traveled extensively in Italy for more than ten years I can recommend this restaurant as offering the most truly authentic Italian food in Northern Virginia. It is rare to find such care and attention to detail in any restaurant. The menu is complete with both regional Italian, as well as those from his native Sicily. Additionally, there always daily specials made with care and attention to great taste. One should also not forget to mention his special wine dinners in which he excels with even more superb dishes. Nino, the owner, always greats you personally in a friendly manner. Without reservation, I would say this is the place to be any day or night when good food is wanted.

The owner, Nino Pino, personally greeted us and visited our table frequently during our meal. We had never been to this restaurant before but our party of five felt at home right away. The wait staff knew the day's specials without having to look at a list; that tells me they are well trained. The service was perfectly executed. We ordered a couple of appetizers that hit the spot. The meatballs were about as fine an Italian meatball as you will find anywhere. The lasagne was delicious. One special was scallops lightly grilled with fava beans and asparagus; absolutely delicious.
This gem is in Shirlington, just across the freeway from Alexandria. We used the footbridge to walk from Alexandria where we parked the car. Parking can be an issue but eating here is well worth the effort.

This slightly off-the-beaten-path location in Shirlington was once a trendy wine retailer, but now you can find this cool restaurant there. I had the grilled octopus and one of their pizzas for lunch - all very tasty. The owner and staff are incredibly friendly - almost like they’re not from NoVA! I’ll definitely be back and bring the entire family.
