We live in NOVA and finally got around to trying Villa Mozart a few weeks ago. It was a spur of the moment decision that ended up with a fabulous meal. The choices are very diverse and interesting. There were a good range of choices from pasta to meat to seafood and the waiter was honest and full of suggestions. His first choice for wine was more than we wanted to spend so he immediately found other options that were a perfect pair with our meals. We will definitely go back, and it's good to know about the price fix option during the week.
Lately it has been very hard to find a fine venue with quite atmosphere for conversations. This hit the mark on all accounts. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of Italian food, and literally wanted to try everything. I went with the Hometown 3 course with the Prosciutto, Ravioli, and Strudel. AMAZING, it was like they brought northern Italy to Fairfax City.
We have been going to Villa Mozart several times a year since it first opened and have never had a meal that has been less than excellent. The food is the right balance between traditional and creative. My favorite dishes from the regular menu are the arugula salad, the carpaccio, and the lobster risotto. The fish specials are also worth getting as every time it's been perfectly cooked. As good as the food is, the service makes this place exceptional. It's attentive, considerate, and familiar.
