Without going into DC most of the restaurants around here are mediocre. The homemade pasta is as good as in Italy. The food is very good and reasonably priced. they don''t take reservations, so you have to get there early.

Don't be turned off by the location in the non-descript strip mall. The interior is beautiful and tastefully designed. The service is impeccable. And theclientele is well heeled, but casually dressed. It's sophisticated without being stuffy. Unlike a lot of restaurants we go to, the sound level is low and we can always hold a normal conversation and hear each... More

The food is excellent and plentiful, although a bit pricy for lunch. The meal and service was top notch. My eggplant parmasean was delicious and plentiful. My client loved his garlic jumbo shrimp. Once you are inside, the experience is worthy of a FIVE rating. The surrounding location and parking was the only reason why I gave a four, and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the MD/DC area - and has been for 20+ years. They don't accept reservations, so we always arrive close to when they open - as we did tonight. We LOVE quiet restaurants, but by the time we finished dinner & dessert, the tables were filling in. We shared the Salmon in Filo... More

Food and service are as usual, very good. Only downside is the wait on the weekends but it's worth it

Attended for a work team dinner which could have been hit or miss as the restaurant doesn't take bookings (Go early....when we left they were queuing out the door). The waiter offered a tasting menu for starters and pasta, with individuals going their own way for mains. The food was great!!!

We visited il Pizzico after recommendation from our children who live in Rockville. We lived in Italy for 8 years while in the service, so we know good, authentic italian food and were not disappointed. Since our first visit we have eaten both lunch and dinner here and service and food was great. Restaurant does not take reservations so go... More

Had an amazing dinner last night at il Pizzico! From apps to salad to entrees...everything we had was top notch. They surely deserve their #1 Trip Advisor ranking!

My friend and I recently had dinner at Il Pizzico, which is absolutely fantastic. Both of us vowed to return just to sample everything else on the menu, which is well rounded and full of delicious options. There were also specials in the appetizer and main course areas as well that Friday evening. The restaurant is housed in a tiny... More
