The food is quite good. I think that is how they have survived for so many years. The service is also quite good. But the location in a cheap looking strip shopping center can make the experience bad due to lack of parking.

We were in Rockville for a memorial service for my father. With our Italian heritage, it was decided to eat Italian for dinner. We googled Italian food near our location. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. After a very difficult day, our dining experience made us all feel much better. Thank you!

It's an obvious characteristic at any Italian restaurant when the food including the pasta is freshly prepared on a daily basis. The Il Pizzico restaurant offers stunningly delicious and fresh food from top to bottom. The mixed appetizer plate was superb and offered the perfect entry to the later dishes. The freshly prepared pasta was so sumptuous and full of... More

We eat here at least once a month. The food is excellent, always fresh and the pasta is made there. Had the fish special for this lunch visit. The flounder was moist and had a great sauce. There wine list is very good. A lot of good Italian selections.

You will be shocked how such a fantastic restaurant has managed to say tucked away into an unassuming strip mall. After a lovely cosmetic renovation (new art and paint) this place is looking a great as it ever has. Your meal will start with an olive tapenade that I to die for the term “take a bath in it” comes... More

This is one of the upscale restaurants in the middle of basically nowhere. Great ambiance, nice italian food and good service. I saw a number of businessmen using it for lunch options but it is a good place for a date or any special occasion. A bit on the upper side for pricing, though.

A very well run restaurant with a wide variety of great choices. They pay attention to the details for both service and the quality of the food. The wait staff is pleasant and patient. The mains are as described and served prepared properly We had one of the special entrees (rainbow trout) and it was quite good. The pastas mains... More

And you'll be pinching yourself that this wonderful restaurant could exist in this very forlorn-looking building. Don't let the exterior keep you from wandering in. They don't take reservations, but there's a nice bar area to wait for your table. The staff is very professional and friendly. This is not your classic pasta and pizza restaurant. The food is very...

I had a great experience at Il Pizzico. The food is very good. This is as close as you can get to the original Italian flavors. The gnocchi were terrific I let me tell you something I do not eat Italian food anywhere else but at home. The decor is ugly, sorry but no ambiance. The place need an urgent... More
