Padella is a contemporary Italian restaurant near Dulles Airport serving classic fare prepared with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. The executive chef, Luca de Marchis, hails from the Italian Riviera and has designed the menu to reflect the authentic culinary tradition of the region.
The Italian word "padella" directly translates to "frying pan." The restaurant was named in honor of Virginia’s Frying Pan Farm - the last working farm in Fairfax County. Today, the Frying Pan is a local farmer’s market, serving as a source for many of the fresh ingredients used in our cooking.
Our seasonally changing menus offer a delicious variety of flavors, including fresh seafood dishes, sumptuous pastas, and locally raised Angus steaks. We also offer an extensive breakfast menu and wine list, featuring local as well as international wines to complement your dish.
We look forward to hosting your next gathering. Padella’s private dining room offers the perfect venue for your next celebration, brunch or corporate lunch. Learn more about hosting a special event at our restaurant near Dulles Airport.
