You can't go wrong at this restaurant. If you've never been there before, you'll definitely pass it by the first time as it's situated in a tiny strip mall in between tons of car dealerships. Inside decor is totally different. Super elegant and inviting. Servers are TOP NOTCH! 5 star every time. Best Italian Food ever. The only complaint I... More

We were in Washington DC for then Inauguration and staying in Maryland and needed a place to eat. We used Trip Advisor and came up with Il Pizzico. The site did not disappoint, the restaurant was outstanding. It was mentioned that it was an Italian Restaurant and in all my travels, I must say it was right up there among... More

The food is very good but extremely pricey. But the menu has great desserts. I'm not sure why they charge so much for basic ingredients.

This is a hidden gem located in a shopping center. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, the only downside is the tables are pretty close together. The timballo (eggplant) and gnocchi were delicious and the tiramisu was the best we've had in a long time (if ever). The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We had dinner on a... More

This warm, welcoming, beautiful restaurant with exquisite food and wine is somewhere you can go when you want to be transported to a magical place. The outside of this restaurant in a strip mall might make you think it is an empty ordinary pizza kitchen. Just open the door and discover how nice life can be for an hour or... More

I've eaten here for years but haven't reviewed it in quite some time. I said it was excellent in the past and, hurray, nothing has changed. We went out for a birthday celebration. Two of us had the Branzino, Mediterranean sea bass, one of the day's specials. The other person had the veal scallopini. All terrifically prepared and presented. One... More

Without going into DC most of the restaurants around here are mediocre. The homemade pasta is as good as in Italy. The food is very good and reasonably priced. they don''t take reservations, so you have to get there early.

Don't be turned off by the location in the non-descript strip mall. The interior is beautiful and tastefully designed. The service is impeccable. And theclientele is well heeled, but casually dressed. It's sophisticated without being stuffy. Unlike a lot of restaurants we go to, the sound level is low and we can always hold a normal conversation and hear each... More

The food is excellent and plentiful, although a bit pricy for lunch. The meal and service was top notch. My eggplant parmasean was delicious and plentiful. My client loved his garlic jumbo shrimp. Once you are inside, the experience is worthy of a FIVE rating. The surrounding location and parking was the only reason why I gave a four, and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the MD/DC area - and has been for 20+ years. They don't accept reservations, so we always arrive close to when they open - as we did tonight. We LOVE quiet restaurants, but by the time we finished dinner & dessert, the tables were filling in. We shared the Salmon in Filo... More
