The tuna was overcooked (both dishes! ) and it appeared it was in a bad condition (maybe that's why it was overcooked? ). We end up paying $24 for potatoes with tomato sauce. My kids pasta was OK, but nothing to remember. Servers did not even care to ask how was the food, as they would know the answer. I... More

You'll find the menu on their website displays an enticing and eclectic variety of dishes that lean toward Italian but include many others so variety & choice is not an issue. Our waiter was superb, not too intrusive but not negligent and hard-to-find either. His wine recommendation was excellent as well as the main courses. The mushroonm risotto as an... More

We've been going to Geranio for years but have never taken the time to write review. Chef Clayton bought the already successful restaurant back in 1998 and has done nothing but improve it since then. He has a keen ability to keep the menu fresh while still presenting customer favorites. The service is always impeccable and you are always greeting... More

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
