I make it a point to eat here every time I am in town. Fantastic Italian fare with awesome deserts. I have eaten multiple menu items here and have never been disappointed. My favorite deserts are the tiramisu and the cannoli. The tiramisu is the best. I do not drink much but must say that this restaurant has quite a... More

Excellent linguine and clams. Wife had shrimp pasta. Both were excellent, shrimp was slightly over cooked. Salad was good. Ingredients were fresh. Dessert was good. Waiters were efficient and friendly. Definitely would recommend and would return.

The entrees have always been good and the wine excellent. Expected more from the dessert. Like the option of the market.

We've been regular customers at Sfizi for a few years now. We've come with friends, with family, and just as a couple. The food and atmosphere is perfect for all. Pricing is very reasonable. The ingredients are always so fresh: salads, breads, pastas. The bronzino fish is especially delicious. We've eaten at Michelin 5 stars throughout the world and Sfizi's... More

What a nice place with friendly wait staff and good food. We had a nice appetizer and very good pasta. One cautionary note is that service can be slow. I'm told that is because everything is made fresh to order. It's hard to find a good Italian restaurant in No Virginia. This is a keeper.

We have been to Sfizi twice recently, once as a drop-in and also for a fixed menu event. Both times the food was delicious with sensibly sized portions. House red very good. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. It is European not only gastronomically but in attitude and hands-on approach to diners. Yes one had to wait a bit between... More

Every time we visit Sfizi, an unassuming looking restaurant on the main drag in Falls Church, we end up saying, "That's one of the best Italian meals I've ever had!" Their preparation is very special. I love their linguine con vongole, which is served in a delicious, garlicky, somewhat spicy sauce that is unlike any other I've ever seen. Their... More

We have eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed it, I think I even reviewed it before but perhaps not. This time I can't help wonder if they were short handed or had new staff as they seemed stressed and always behind. I had the Fruitti Di Mare Fradiavolo and my wife had the Petto Di Pollo Fiorentino.... More
