FOX 5's Will Thomas took a trip to Reston this week as "Will You Eat There?" made a stop at Cafesano.
The restaurant features Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and it's all about a quick and casual experience for lunch and dinner here. It promises to offer selections that aren't too rich or too spicy, but you can expect bold flavor profiles.
What's on the menu?
You'll see half Italian and half Middle Eastern items on the menu here. The restaurant uses a lot of olive oil in all of their recipes.
- Hummus (Tahini, lemon, garlic and chickpeas. Served with grilled pita)
- Signature salad (made with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, fresh mozzarella and a skewer of chicken, shrimp or steak)
- Falafel wrap (Finely ground chickpeas seasoned with onions, garlic, parsley and spices, lightly fried. Served with romaine, tomatoes, scallions, radish and our tahini sauce, wrapped in a grilled pita)
- Caprese panini (mozzarella cheese, pesto sauce, arugula and tomato)
- Brick oven pizza
Lunch ranges from $10 to $12. Dinner is between $14 and $20.
"It kind of makes you feel like you're in the Mediterranean, not really here just in Reston," said another patron.
As the temperatures stay warm, there is a scenic outdoor seating area that features a beautiful view of Lake Thoreau.
