A visit to this Arlington institution was very disappointing. We ordered two of their specialties a broccoli - pasta dish and lasagne. The lasagne was okay but needed more seasoning. The broccoli pasta dish was completely flavorless and had one raw-hard garlic clove in it. Had this of been sliced, chopped and cooked or ever better roasted it would have... More

We've lived in Arlington over 40 years and Piccolo Mondo is our "go to place" for any special occasion; be it an Anniversary, Birthday or when entertaining out of towners. The ambiance is great, the decor is superb, the food & wine top drawer and on the evenings when the piano is being played, it truly makes it a special... More

We dine here at least monthly, as it is one of our favorites. One doesn't expect to walk into a strip mall restaurant and find themselves in an upscale restaurant with charming ambiance and outstanding Italian cuisine. You will not be disappointed.

OK, going to a supposedly fine dining restaurant located in a strip center had me not expecting much, but this experience was excellent and proved my wariness to be totally wrong! Great food, excellent service, an outstanding meal!

We've been eating at Piccolo Mondo for many years and have yet to find another Italian restaurant in Arlington to equal the quality of the food at P.M. Although found in a unimpressive looking strip mall, inside the restaurant patrons find a quiet, relaxing atmosphere which is both casual and elegant. Certainly, Piccolo Mondo is one of the finest restaurants... More

You would think that a wonderful Italian restaurant would not be hidden in a strip center but this one is, right next to a ship and mail. Right after entering you are transported into old Italy. While tablecloths, entertainment (on weekends, I believe), excellent service, diverse menu, comfortable venue. We have visited several times and the service, food, and quality... More

We enjoyed excellent Italian cuisine and courteous service at Piccolo Mondo. The dining room was not noisy and this meant that conversation at our table was easy.

Have been eating at this wonderful place for over 20 years. The food is some of the finest in the DFW area and well situated near Cowboy stadium, Texas Ranger ballpark, and Six Flags over Texas. The "dress code" is everything from suits to jeans and the clientele may range from politicians, ballplayers, etc. to "regular" folks like me who... More

This restaurant never disappoints! It is truly a gem in Arlington. The food is great. Pasta is always cooked al dente. We always pick this place for family celebrations. Paul at the piano contributes to the cozy atmosphere. Make sure you make time to have dinner at Piccolo when you come to Arlington!
