I did not have that high expectations, but this place is superb! Had my meal at that bar, bartender being the role model for all bar tenders. Dishes were served with perfect pace. Starter was excellent, the fish for main was just as good. Trust me – don’t be fooled by the outside, once inside the doors you’re in for... More

Il Pizzico is probably my favorite Italian restaurant - tasty and interesting dishes supplement standard Italian fare. The reason I didn't give this a five is that there is a lot of standard stuff there, too - I think this just means I'm not a big fan of Italian food. Pasta, red sauce, white sauce, garlic .... It's all very... More

Food was very good. Service was great. Everything was expensive (food, wine, dessert). Did not make reservation. Had to wait for 20 minutes at 8:30 pm on Saturday. So that was okay.

Service is very good and friendly; food was enjoyable but not as good as my last time there maybe because there was a change of chef...I will still attend this restaurant because my meals and stay in the past were very pleasant and hopefully the food will rise to previous standards.

We are from Boston and have lived in Maryland for three years. At last we visited Il Pizzico and it did not disappoint! We felt like we were in the North End of Boston! Best Italian food we have had in the area! We will be regulars, just sorry we waited so long!

Highly recommend this quaint Italian restaurant! The food at il Pizzico was absolutely delicious. I had the arancine which were cooked perfectly- crisp on outside, not oily. Balsamic vinegar drizzled on top. The inside had perfectly cooked rice with some taleggio cheese. The spaghetti alla scoglio was fantastic. Perfectly cooked al dente pasta with a red sauce that was both... More

At first, we had reservations - about going in that is. We're adventurous and at times do not check reviews. The restaurant is located in a non-descript strip center and you'd never know what's in store. Super friendly reception, small quaint but inviting bar for waiting, dark mood décor and delicious artisan pasta. The portions are small but well worth... More

As usual, this spot does not disappoint. Looks small from the outside but delivers a huge palatable punch! The special appetizer was a salmon purse which was amazing. I had the gnocchi -D-lish and two of our dinner guests had the pistachio ravioli - not to be missed. We paired this meal with one of their many lovely Italian wines... More

Given the exterior and location (busy road and just next to a gas station) I was not expecting much This has great food and authentic Italian dishes nicely prepared and with a good selection. It's appeared busy for our lunch and I was told it is almost impossible to get in at weekend because of high demand. Mid range prices... More
