My husband and I have visited Piccolo Mondo probably 4 or 5 times and it never, ever lets us down. Service is five-star quality, the wine list is extensive and covers a range of varieties and price ranges. The food is simply outstanding. I had the lasagne with a side of meatballs.

If you are searching for a special occasion restaurant or just want a pleasant evening out with friends, Piccolo Mondo is a good choice. The atmosphere is delightful , complete with live piano music.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. Every single thing on the menu is mouthwateringly delicious. There are hardly any places in all of Dallas-Fort Worth that you can get French food and Italian food, and have it be truly gourmet. They have live pianos and saxophonists on certain evenings. The bar also brings and very upscale and... More

Don’t let the outside of the restaurant fool you. While it may not look like much, once you step inside the restaurant, you will be surprised to see that you are stepping into a fine dining establishment. You will be surprised again when you see the menu and its affordable prices, especially when you take half of your entrée home... More

restaurant about 10 miles from the DFW Airport. This restaurant's been around for quite some time and the quality of the food is very good. The menu is extensive and the wine selection is more than adequate. It has a lot of repeat customers which speaks for itself. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and will return

I was so surprised when I saw that Piccolo Mondo was not higher up on the Trip Advisor list (It's Zagat Rated). I have been going to Piccolo Mondo since I was in my early 20's and over 10 years later its still the ONLY place to go if you are looking for 5 star service and a beautiful atmosphere... More

the taste here has been consistent for years. Friendly servers, attentive and present owner, and flavors that never vary. The chicken dishes, Marsala and piccata, always fresh tender and tasty. It's an interesting sauce (gravy to some) and it too never varies form his family formula. Not too pasty, and flavorful. Always an accommodating kitchen to changes, and the salads... More

Food was good - those in our party who had red snapper said it was outstanding! The service, however, was out of this world! Very nice atmosphere - live piano music. A bit on the pricy side, but a very nice evening out for our large party.

My family took me to Piccolo Mondo this week for my birthday. Years ago we had loved going to Portofino's restaurant nearby and they thought it would be similar. ATMOSPHERE: The pianist was fantastic; however, although the restaurant was little more than half full, it became very difficult to carry on a conversation at our table with the piano music... More

Wonderful Italian restaurant with fresh ingredients. Fantastic pasta and seafood. Amazing salads. We were not able to try everything in one visit, although we tried tilapia, sole, pasta with marinara, two salads, and the cheesecake. This is a quiet restaurant with a nice bar in the middle of Arlington. It has been in this location for 31 years. The owner... More
