"Where would be without mothers?" asks Chef Scott Jenkins, the executive chef at Arlington-based Extra Virgin restaurant. "It's our pleasure to help people treat their mothers well on this special occasion. We start by making sure we have great food, paired with a wonderful atmosphere, topped with awesome customer service."

In addition to those, there are a number of popular dishes that moms may want to try, including fried lasagna, homemade gnocchi, portabella mushroom ravioli, and homemade butternut squash ravioli.

They also have a full wine list, with wine by the glass available.
"Our mission as a restaurant is to please our customers," adds Chef Jenkins. "We are only successful if they are happy. When they are aware of the things we want them to know, they will be providing us with more of an opportunity to offer them great service."
