When i lived in rckvl i went to Pizzico regularly on friday evenings over many years. i started with enzo when he had just opened his sandwich and pizza shop. i watched and ate with great enjoyment as he grew the place to one of the highest rated restaurants in DC metro area. i've lived elsewhere for the last eight years and was visiting rckvl this weekend. it was like coming back to family - only without the baggage. food was as terrific as i remembered. and it was flattering to be remembered by Sondra immediately as i walked in the door. kudos to enzo for keeping the quality and ambience so high. thanx to luciano for the flawless service. ola mi amigo omar.

Traveling with a group of 8, one person raved about this place so much that we had to try it. He was so spot on. A small local restaurant with a very friendly & helpful staff, the food (from appetizer to salad to entrée) was absolutely delicious! All the pasta's were extremely fresh. The next day I noticed it was ranked #1 in Rockville by Trip Advisor reviewers....deservingly so!

I have been to this restaurant ever since it opened as a carry out with no tables two decades ago. It was so popular that they gradually added tables, expanded, added a bar, and now just finished a redecorating. The owner, Enzio, who used to do the cooking, and his wife, Sandra, who now shares the reception duties greet regulars by name, know their favorite dishes and drinks.

Parking is a problem. If there are no spaces go around back.

Every bite of every course was incredible. This included the Monkfish Saltimbocca, the very inventive special of the evening.

The Napoleon is a must. Very light and flavorful.

The service was attentive and unobtrusive.

A small local restaurant with an unassuming storefront but an elegant interior. One can tell that this is the regular dining place for many of the diners by the way they are greeted by the owners. Because they don't take reservations there is usually a waiting time which can be spent by the bar area.

The food never disappoints, their soups of the day are generous and tasty.Their wines by the glass are reasonably priced. Their pastas are excellent, i usually order the mushroom ravioli with pistachio cream sauce, once in a while I try something different; most recently the beef short ribs with polenta, I think I may have found a new favorite. Hope we can get back there again soon.
