Since opening in 1991, Zeffirelli Ristorante Italiano has been established as a fine tradition in historic Herndon. The 100-year-old building adds character and ambiance to Zeffirelli’s dining experience. The formal service, candlelit tables, exquisite Tuscan cuisine, and fine wines set an incomparable atmosphere for patrons. Try the famous veal chop - 16 ounces of fine thick cut chops, marinated in tasty spices and pan-seared to perfection. Seafood is a specialty and many customers return for the Linguini Cleopatra - a magnificent combination of lobster, shrimp and sea scallops prepared in a light champagne-cream sauce and served atop fresh homemade pasta.
