Second visit in three weeks
We have been frequent diners to the original Pizzico and are delighted to have a second location in the East Bay. Very friendly and welcoming, and the food and service are excellent.

Barrington now has a restaurant with consistently excellent food, both with and without meat. AND the restaurant is making a concerted effort to embrace a "farm to table" philosophy. The servers are knowledgeable, efficient, and pleasant. My husband and I have been to the restaurant twice in the last two weeks, and both times our servers--first a young woman, and the second time, a guy with rocking long sideburns--were awesome.

Wed night is Ladies' Night
Very good food in a nice neighborhood restaurant. We went on a Wednesday night during restaurant weeks and they had all kinds of specials available. The grilled salmon on a bed of like spinach was perfectly cooked and delicious. the only problem with the air conditioning is not working properly but our waiter told us they were installing new units in the next week or so other than that a great dating experience.

First Time Customer
This was my first visit and will not be my last. The food was fresh and flavorful, and the staff was very attentive without being annoying. The menu is extensive and impressive. Had it not been for restaurant week, it probably would have taken me even longer to discover this restaurant. (The name is deceiving. I thought it was yet another pizza place that had come into town.)

The service was outstanding--food
The service was outstanding--food was awesome. I always look forward to the Chilean seabass and it was fantastic! The only problem is it can be quite noisy. Will be back again soon!

The scrod was artfully plated and very tasty but the sauce could use a little work. It was a bit too plain vanilla. The lobster gnocchi were just wonderful. No complaints, I would order it again. Our server was delightful. The room was pleasant and the noise level was moderate. I suspect that on a busy weekend it would be noisy. I will repeat.

Great for "Girl's Night Out"
I went here on a Wednesday with 2 friends. Entrees are 1/2 price for Ladies on Wednesday (which we did not know before we went). Our food was fantastic. Cosmos were $7 on special and delicious. Our server, David was attentive, knowledgeable and fun! We had a great night and will be back soon.

Good food and good atmosphere. I like quiet places and try to go on less busy nights.
But I was there on a busy night and the noise level was not obnoxious. Certainly better than most.
My dish was wonderful. The atmosphere was good . Very nice to have this option in a town with not so many options.

A Slice of Manhattan in Barrington
This restaurant is absolutely outstanding. The menu is fresh, vibrant and feels truly authentic Italian. The decor is understated but chic at the same time. Our server, Dominic was attentive and gave great wine and liquor recommendations. This restaurant feels like you have stepped out of Barrington and into a restaurant in Manhattan. I truly recommend this restaurant to everyone who loves quality food with local ingredients.

Although it can be a little
Although it can be a little difficult to have a conversation in this lovely restaurant, the food is wonderful and the staff very welcoming and they seem to enjoy taking care of you. We will be back, again and again.

Glad I tried it!
The decor is pretty, tables are spaced wide enough apart to not feel cramped, and there's parking aplenty (outside tables overlook the parking lot--not the most scenic of views). The food was delicious--we shared a salad with prosciutto and spinach (brought to the table on 2 plates, which is always nice when sharing) as well as Tiepida (grilled chicken over greens with pistachios, mozzarella and a balsamic vinaigrette), and a side of lobster risotto. My only complaint was the lack of bread. We asked once and were told it was baking. Other tables received bread after awhile but we never did. Other than that, service was fine. We'll definitely go back.

New Location - Same great food!
Tried Pizzico's new Barrington location. It did not disappoint. Food was as spectacular as usual, special were locally sourced and staff was very helpful! Kudos to Pizzico.

Great service, great food,
Great service, great food, great soup of the day. Surprised by the cost of mixed drinks and house wine.

Rapidly becoming a favorite
The veal parmigianno, the pizza special with shaved steak, fennel and mushrooms and the roasted pear and gorgonzola salad were amazing. Our table of 4 was unanimous in the tastiness of the dishes. This is the 3rd time we've dined here and we will be returning again.

We love that as much of the ingredients as possible are from local farms. The chef and menu selections are outstanding!
