Had an amazing dinner last night at il Pizzico! From apps to salad to entrees...everything we had was top notch. They surely deserve their #1 Trip Advisor ranking!

My friend and I recently had dinner at Il Pizzico, which is absolutely fantastic. Both of us vowed to return just to sample everything else on the menu, which is well rounded and full of delicious options. There were also specials in the appetizer and main course areas as well that Friday evening. The restaurant is housed in a tiny... More

My wife and I had dinner here the other night. Definitely not our 1st time, and definitely not our last. This has been one of our favorite restaurants for 23 years. We shared the salmon croquettes. My wife had their seafood pasta, and I had their Ahi Tuna special. For dessert, we shared a lemon crème tart. I had their... More

Great option for fabulous lunch. They do not take reservations so come for dinner early. Terrific menu options for everyone. Preparation is fresh, delicious and nicely presented. Interesting salads, great fish ( I do not eat meat) , great pasta dishes and nice wine choices.

The service is attentive without hovering. The wait staff and bartender do a great job of pairing the perfect wine with each course. They make the best Perfect Manhattan I have ever had. There are choices for vegetarians and meat eaters both.

We visited Il Pizzico for the first time last night and we will definitely be back. Everything we tried was stupendous, from gnocchi to seafood to pasta to masala. We started the night with an appetizer special featuring prosciutto and beretta - yum. Then mushroom ravioli with a pistachio cream sauce shared round the table. Well received by all and... More

Just wanted to share that we had a lovely romantic meal at Il Pizzico. It was late in the evening just before they closed and they welcomed us into the restaurant. We explained we had never been there before, that we had allergies and they could not have been more accommodating or kind. The food was outstanding and the service... More

Despite the horrible parking situation, the food and service at Il Pizzico are superb. However, as a couple, we spend about $150 (with tip) for a meal there and don't like to be rushed. Our appetizers came within minutes of ordering and the entrees were there as soon as the first plates were cleared. After dinner, the waiter tried to... More

Can't say enough. The food was excellent! Served fresh and hot. Service was outstanding. Only draw back was the lunch prices. Other then that I loved it.

Don't let the exterior fool you. This is authentic Tuscan-style food in a plain wrapper. The wine list has many rare gems you won't find anywhere else. You will not be disappointed with your visit.
