The restaurant is a busy one. We waited 45 minutes before we were seated. The bar was a bit crowded, but we were lucky to get a spot at the bar for a drink. We had three courses and we felt the half order of pasta was a great idea. The starters were raw tuna in four cones and cod... More

I have been going to Il Pizzico for years and it never disappoints. Ignore the strip center exterior because inside is a lovely atmosphere, excellent food and charming service. Not traditional Italian food but a great blend of old with a new style. Very good wine selection, service that balances friendly and 5 star beautifully! Their menu changes regularly but... More

You can't go wrong at this restaurant. If you've never been there before, you'll definitely pass it by the first time as it's situated in a tiny strip mall in between tons of car dealerships. Inside decor is totally different. Super elegant and inviting. Servers are TOP NOTCH! 5 star every time. Best Italian Food ever. The only complaint I... More

We were in Washington DC for then Inauguration and staying in Maryland and needed a place to eat. We used Trip Advisor and came up with Il Pizzico. The site did not disappoint, the restaurant was outstanding. It was mentioned that it was an Italian Restaurant and in all my travels, I must say it was right up there among... More

The food is very good but extremely pricey. But the menu has great desserts. I'm not sure why they charge so much for basic ingredients.

This is a hidden gem located in a shopping center. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, the only downside is the tables are pretty close together. The timballo (eggplant) and gnocchi were delicious and the tiramisu was the best we've had in a long time (if ever). The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We had dinner on a... More

This warm, welcoming, beautiful restaurant with exquisite food and wine is somewhere you can go when you want to be transported to a magical place. The outside of this restaurant in a strip mall might make you think it is an empty ordinary pizza kitchen. Just open the door and discover how nice life can be for an hour or... More

I've eaten here for years but haven't reviewed it in quite some time. I said it was excellent in the past and, hurray, nothing has changed. We went out for a birthday celebration. Two of us had the Branzino, Mediterranean sea bass, one of the day's specials. The other person had the veal scallopini. All terrifically prepared and presented. One... More
