Just like dining in Italy. Great ambience, great service, outstanding food and wines. What a nice experience!


We do not live close to Bellissimo, but try to go there a couple of times a year. We always find the food to be perfectly prepared and the service to be quite good. We do miss the waiter we met there many years ago. He was from Italy and we found it interesting to chat with him about the places we had been when we toured Italy.

The restaurant is cozy and the presentation is very elegant. I had the mussels and they were delicious. Definitely worth the price.


A wonderful dining experience! Loved the food, the ambiance, and the service :)


Had a wonderful leisurely lunch at Bellissimo with two friends who had never been there. We started with a bottle of wine and delicious bread with olive oil. I had a wonderful Caesar salad, perfectly cooked salmon and a side of pasta with Alfredo sauce and their incredible tiramisu with cappuccino for dessert. My friends were very happy with their choices and plan to put this restaurant on their “favorites” list as I have for years….. highly recommend if you want authentic Italian cuisine.


Always worth the drive from DC! She had the veal special with mashed potatoes and broccoli. I had ravioli studded with crabmeat in a light red-cream sauce. The salads were fresh and crisp, martinis made to order and a great wine, Montepulciano, that did not break the budget. Cannoli and espresso for dessert. Fantastic!!


A delightful dinner for date night last night. The veal was tender as always, and the calamari delicately fried. The cannoli was delicious, and the bottle of Amarone was one of our favorites! All with attentive and thoughtful service. Can't wait to go back. We've stayed away too long!


Fantastic meal! Table was ready and since I put Birthday dinner in the reservation notes they brought out cheesecake with a candle!


My husband and I dined here for the 1st time for a cozy Valentine’s lunch. We are locals here in Fairfax and had never dined here before. Our table looked out on the street, which was very charming on a nice sunny day. The food was very authentic northern Italian. The fresh Italian white bread with sesame seeds and olive oil dip were very good. We also drank a delicious dry white wine from the Umbrian region of Italy(where we were married 10 years ago). We enjoyed our Pan-seared Halibut and Veal Napoli as well as our Cheesecake with fresh strawberries. Everything was fresh and delicious with a nice presentation. The waitstaff were polite and kind. We will return.


Snails and mussels appetizer , beef tenderloin, and chocolate mousse were excellent


Food and service were amazing. Will definitely return. Prices were a bit high but large portion sizes made take home an option for another meal.


A small family run restaurant. Family run with authentic Italian food. No pizza or sub sandwiches on the menu. I go for the vitelllo Ala portichino. Veal in a creamy porticini mushroom sauce. Being from South Carolina, this my first dinner stop when I come to the area.

The restaurant is very small and cozy! The bread they bring out before your meal is delicious. I wish the olive oil and cheese they provided for dipping had some herbs as well. My family has Caribbean palates so we were unsure of what to order. We eventually decided and were pleasantly surprised when the food came out. Everything was plated beautifully and the food tasted okay. Service was okay- no complaints but nothing stood out to push it over average.

Kicked off The Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s (RAMW) Winter Restaurant Week (Jan. 16-22, 2023) at Bellissimo's in Fairfax. This restaurant has always been one of my favorites. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is wonderful. There is a three course fixed price menu this week for Restaurant Week which offers a lot to choose from. I really enjoyed the Tiramisu which was a perfect way to end the meal. This restaurant also seems to be popular for special occasions. While there I noticed one table with a large bouquet of roses and saw another large group sitting in a small more private room. Finally, there is free parking in a lot less than a block from the restaurant which is very convenient. Enjoy!

Service was passable. Food was way overpriced for stuff that’s not worth the value, imo. Very little flavor to speak of and small portions for the price. There was a hair in my dessert, and they didn’t care very much. Also the place was kind of dirty, especially the carpet. Not worth going back AT ALL. I could get better food at the corner Italian restaurant - without the premium price point.
