Well, where does one begin? First, I am stunned by all the favorable reviews on this site telling me that unfortunately a lot of people have low standards when it comes to Italian food. But we live in America and what do most Americans know about these things. The average American thinks a Pappa Johns pizza is the real done. Piccolo restaurant is simply not that good. Service was fine, manager or owner was congenial, waitress was OK, but food was substandard. Far many better choices in DC for Italian fod. Salad was not how it was described on the menu, and their house special pasta, Pasta Il Picolo, or something like that, was just your average run of the mill Bolognese sauce. My wife's agnolotti dish was swimming in oil. She had to pour most of it into her bread dish. On our next trip to DC we will look elsewhere for Italian food.
