This restaurant has been in Rockville for years and it has never disappointed. We went when the kids were young, we've gone with couples and the service and food has always been fabulous.

A little bit of Europe in suburbia a real treat for yourself and friends. A wonderful staff and a wallet friendly price range.

This is my go to place for business lunches. The food never disappoints and the service is always friendly and professional. It's one of the best Italian places in the Rockville area. I have been going here for over 10 years and have never had a bad meal. The location is not ideal as the parking is tight and the... More

We went for lunch and it was wonderful and I look forward to returning. The lunch is more like smaller versions of their dinner menu. Though it is a little pricey around $18 per entree, it was well worth it. The waiter is very knowledgable and can assist you with making a decision. Though it is in a dumpy small... More

What a surprise to find delectable, authentic Italian cuisine in this hidden gem off the Pike. When my family pulled into the strip mall behind Exxon I was thinking "they really can't be bringing me here for my birthday"! Only to have a delicious dinner of seafood dishes, great wine, and homemade sorbet. The service was great too. Highly recommend... More

I have been here many times over the years, but last weekend it was just awesome. The food here is just very good quality and always dependable. Don't miss it. I suggest going a little earlier than you would normally to avoid long waiting in the bar and to get a good parking space. The inside is so nice and... More

The food here is really impressive. It's fine Italian cuisine (not overly centric on pasta the way many Italian restaurants are) with the kind of white apron service you'd expect from such an establishment. I've eaten at Il Pizzico three times, and each was amazingly good. The real challenge with this place, though, is finding it and parking. It is... More

I don't go here as much as I used to but it is still a dependable spot for Italian food. True, it is small, with little parking in front (some in back of the building) and you don't want to just try to drop in on a Friday night but go for a white table cloth experience.

Do not be turned off by the appearance, this place is in a rather tacky strip of businesses, but inside is great. The food is excellent, probably northern Italian, not just spaghetti and meatballs, however, they don't take reservations so go early, and parking is a problem, but it's worth the visit. One of the best restaurants in Rockville.
