My oh my, what a hidden gem My family and I have frequented the Chinese restaurant next door and never knew what was hiding next door! I think this is my favorite Italian restaurant -- not in the DMV area -- but EVER, even compared to all the restaurants I've tried in Philadelphia. I was truly blown away in all... More

Don't let the characterless front of the building fool you. The gem is inside. The owner welcomes you, the seating leaves space for conversation, the waiters know every dish. The challenge becomes not ordering a favorite yet again but instead forcing yourself to try something new. Try to leave room for dessert - I dare you.

This Italian restaurant is well worth finding. It is in a busy commercial district within a small strip of stores and is only open for dinner The food is light, delicious, gourmet Italian cuisine. The dining rooms include white table cloths and professional wait staff. One is catered to without hovering. I really enjoy dining here for a special occasion.

We were meeting some friends for dinner in a neighborhood restaurant close to where they lived. Having never been there before, my husband and I were very surprised By the choice of the place as it was in an unassuming rather small strip mall by the main road..... From the outside you could not even see that there was a... More

Meals are good but over-priced. Parking is horrible. Bar area is microscopic... long waits for a table.

Il Pizzico is a living example of hidden gem, offering an elegant relaxed dining room, efficient friendly professional service, and an excellent menu and wine list, and almost hidden from view on Rockville Pike (Frederick Road). All at reasonable prices. The dining experience is well worth extra effort to discover and enjoy this wonderful restaurant. No reservations taken, plan either... More

I hesitate to write about il pizzico. It's so good, I don't want to see it overrun. Very authentic, and very very good. Recent renovations have improved the dining room and the sound level is a little lower. But the personal greeting at the door is still present. Have a glass of wine at the small bar while you wait...

We have been dining at Il Pizzico for many, many years and this visit did not disappoint. We arrived just before 6, on a Thursday night, and had no trouble getting parking and a table. Service was efficient and friendly as ever. We started with the beef carpaccio, beef melted in our mouths with shaved parmesan and tasty sauce. Between... More

Having been in Italy many times and consider "little Italy" a regular haunt-- Il Pizzico is real world old school Italian. Don't be fooled by it's unassuming exterior and location in an old strip store front on Rockville Pike. From the minute you walk in the front door you are in Italy. The small bar opens into two separate dining... More
