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

Food and service are as usual, very good. Only downside is the wait on the weekends but it's worth it

Attended for a work team dinner which could have been hit or miss as the restaurant doesn't take bookings (Go early....when we left they were queuing out the door). The waiter offered a tasting menu for starters and pasta, with individuals going their own way for mains. The food was great!!!

We visited il Pizzico after recommendation from our children who live in Rockville. We lived in Italy for 8 years while in the service, so we know good, authentic italian food and were not disappointed. Since our first visit we have eaten both lunch and dinner here and service and food was great. Restaurant does not take reservations so go... More

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.
