My favorite restaurant in the United States

I have been coming to IL Pizzico for 17 years and I always visit when I am in the DC area. Enzo has a formula that is timeless and consistent, but he manages to make subtle changes that keep things fresh and interesting. The pastas are as good or better than anything that I have had in Italy. The... read more

I have enjoyed coming here for years and always come back when I am in the area! It never displeases. The menu is by far one of the best in the area with perfectly cooked pastas and main courses unlike other Italian restaurants in the area. Staff is always welcoming and accommodating. This is a real gem in the heart... More

Located on the Pike in upper Rockville you could easily miss this place as you fly by. The outside is non descript but the food is very good. Small location but the waits are not too bad. Word of mouth is what drives this place.

Great service, great food, romantic setting. Loved it! The outside of the building made us skeptical but once you are inside its like a whole different experience. The waiter really knew what he was talking about as well he provided good advice and conversation.

Great food selection, friendly service. They don't take reservation, but no long wait to get seated. Little hard to find in small shopping area.

My wife and I went here for dinner after someone recommended it to her. Our first attempt was on a Sunday and we quickly found out that it is closed on Sunday. We went back a week later and were not disappointed with the service or the food. This looks like an everyday strip mall type of restaurant but it... More

Although we were encouraged by the Trip Advisor reviews, we were a little concerned to be driving to a restaurant surrounded by auto servicing firms and an empty store. So much for external appearances! The lunch menu has several dishes for those with tastes that varied from traditional pastas to veal and rockfish (aka sea bass). All were prepared to... More

The food is always excellent. The service is always excellent. I have gone to this restaurant for several years. I love their salads,pasta, and main dishes. Usually I get the pasta with the veal sauce but I have also gotten their specials. I am never disappointed.
