The restaurant is known for the consistence of their high quality food. Very knowledgable and friendly staff.. They have a small but interesting menu. Great starters. Excellent fish dishes and excellent Italian meal and pasta selections. Good selection of wines. Very popular restaurant so I suggest you make reservations.

Pros: great atmosphere, excellent service, great value for what you get, and the food is wonderfully prepared. The staff has been there forever and are some of the best servers around. Cons: Parking really stinks and the little strip mall they are located in is very dumpy from the outside. I just wish they would upgrade to a larger place... More

When we lived in Rockville, my husband and I had two favorite date night spots-- this one and Manneqin Pis in Olney. MP changed owners several years ago and it tanked, but Il Pizzico seems so well-rooted; I don't think it will be going anywhere for a long time. The owners are always very visible and very gracious. Service is... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant with very authentic cusine. They accept reservations, & we would go more often, but the price is very steep. The food is excellent.

I've never had anything in this restaurant that I didn't think was wonderful. It's convenient to get to, a pleasant atmosphere and fresh ingredients in all its food.

My family and I have been dining at Il Pizzico for years. It is hidden away in a small shopping center with very little parking. They don't take resevations. Once you walk in, you are instantly transported to Italy. Have a glass of wine while you wait for your table. The host speaks to you in Italian, but in a... More

This is a hidden gem in Rockville. Very elegant with the white tablecloths and Italian waiter to help with the menu. I have been here twice and have loved the food. It is a little pricey, but for a special occasion it is worth it. The only funky thing is the location. It is in a little strip mall and... More

This tiny restaurant has been in its present location for MANY years. It backs up to the CSX/Metro tracks. I have not eaten there lately, but years ago, I had wonderful fish. When I asked the waiter if it was "fresh," he answered me "I was out catching it earlier." Others might be offended, but I thought it cute. I... More

After our second day of walking every inch of Washington DC's museums, we found ourselves exhausted and headed back to our hotel in Rockville far too early. So this meant we were forced to eat in Rockville ... Oh oh! Luckily, Trip Advisor steered us to Il Pizzico. It was excellent, and quite a surprise. Beware - it's a busy... More

It is located on Frederick road in Rockville,MD, in a small strip mall ,close to a large parking lot of a car dealership.It is easy to miss. However once you enter, you find a well... More
