We came here for lunch before attending a meeting at the nearby library. I had a very good chicken caccatori although I wasn’t bowled over by the spaghetti side dish. Bucatini with pepperoncino was good but he would have liked it better if the pasta...More

This is the place to go for a nice (home cooked) Italian meal. I think this place has more "regulars" than any restaurant in McLean. Nothing fancy, but consistent quality is what you'll get

I love Mediterranean cuisine and this is my favorite Italian restaurant. Their menu is huge. They have excellent pasta dishes as you would expect and they also have excellent pizza. It’s nothing like papa johns or dominos. Your taste buds will thank you!

Loved this quaint little restaurant! Had the special appetizer, which was burrata cheese with sweet dried figs and a balsamic glaze. It was delicious! The spinach and cheese manicotti was also very tasty and authentic. I highly recommend this restaurant! I will be back!

I always try a new entree, and I I have yet to be disappointed. If I am meeting in the McLean area, I always suggest Pulcinella's for the casual atmosphere and timely and relaxed service (you never feel rushed). Their weekend brunch/breakfast is fabulous. The...More

A very good menu with lots choices. We had a pizza which was well prepared and served very quickly. Only draw back are the close spacing of the tables which could indicate how popular this restaurant is. Everybody is very friendly and welcoming.
