This afternoon, while out and about, my wife, adult granddaughter and I were in the neighborhood of Esposito's and decided to give it a try for lunch. My wife and I visit a couple times a year, only because it is a bit of drive for us. Today I thought it would be a nice first time treat for my... More

We have lived overseas and eaten in some fine restaurants with Italian cuisine. But Esposito's has the friendly atmosphere joined with great food at a reasonable price. Every member of the family has their favorite dish and we are never disappointed. Basic dishes like Spaghetti Carbonara, their brick oven pizzas and calzones, their wonderful soups, their chicken entrees, their lunch... More

A great little family place with excellent food and great service! The pasta is homemade, the red sauce is too. Pizzas seem to fly out the door all night long! Always cheerful waiters! This is my family's "go to" place for special occasions!

Espositos is a family owned restaurant that has had the same family chef for years. Their marinara sauce is the best I have ever tasted.... even better than that in Italy. They have a varied Italian menu with weekend specials. Their lasagne is delicous, their mussels marinara great, the veal or chicken marsala with mushrooms delectable. You can try anything... More

Last night my wife and I decided was needed an Italian food fix. We have been to Esposito's before and always enjoyed it. It's just a bit of a drive, especially considering the rush hour traffic. Our visit turned out to be worth the trip. A warm, friendly family restaurant serving delicious comfort food. We arrived just before 6pm which... More

This is a good family place. The atmosphere is rather ordinary, but the server was quite good, and the Italian fare quite good. The price for a spaghetti dinner with meatballs or an Italian sausage with salad was $16.95, a bit high I thought. Other family members chose Cacciatore and Lasagna for the same price, which they thought was very... More

Espositos Restaurant is an Italian cuisine on Fairfax Blvd., offering mouthwatering pasta, pizza & meat dishes. Decor and table cloths add a genuine Italian vibe. Famous for appetizing pizzas and sausages. I had a Polpetta for $6.95 and it was great. I'll definitely try their other recipes too. Check out their photo & Try Espositos if you're in mood for...

This is the second time we've eaten here because we live on the West Coast and don't get here too often. I wish we lived closer! The restaurant appears to be family run. The folks there are very friendly and take delight in greeting regulars. And the service was very good. We started with house-baked Italian bread and olive oil.... More

Enjoyed a pizza dinner last week at Esposito's. The food was great, the service friendly and the prices moderate. It was a great evening. The pizza was done exactly as we ordered it and was served promptly. This is a great stop in Fairfax, Va.
