fantastic local italian

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... read 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.

Il Pizzico is a go-to place when we have guests in from out of town. The food is always perfectly seasoned, fresh, and thoughtfully presented. The waitstaff are helpful and knowledgeable without being even slightly stuffy or in-your-face. The decor is very nice and it is small enough to be cozy. Don't miss their fabulous selection of appetizers and salads--each... More

Il Pizzavo sits in a small strip mall on Rockville Pike, that could scare you away. Go inside! The restaurant is very nice with white table clothes, excellent food and superb service. The one draw back is that it can be noisy. You need a reservation most nights, but absolutely a most on weekend nights. This is a lovely place... More

Don't let the generic view from the street throw you! Once you walk in you'll see that this is indeed a nice restaurant. If you are craving good Italian food in the Rockville/Gaithersburg area this is the place for you. Why go to some lame national chain for bland and boring food when you can come to Il Pizzico for...

The food and service is excellent. Chef even made dishes to fit our taste buds. I wish the place was a little bigger to fit large parties but I would definitely Come back again and again.

Can't miss Italian restaurant for nice night pure family or friends. Gets crowded on weekends as you would expect but worth the wait. The food and service is the best. They make everyone feel special. Never had a bad meal here from pasta to veal to fish. Their specials are great but more pricey. A nice evening out.

The food is consistently delicious. I go here several times per year. This is not a red-sauce Italian place, it's 100 percent legit. Closed on Sunday; closed in the afternoons between lunch and dinner. Sometimes the service does seem subpar/not even with its food quality, but prices are fair and despite the white tablecloths, you can dress very casually. They... More
