    We were excited to finally try out Ristorante Pizzico but the whole experience was lackluster and expensive. First, the service was extremely poor. We got to the restaurant and were promptly seated. However it took just over 15 minutes for our server to show up. From that point it was about another 10 before she returned with drinks and to take our order. Once she took the order she got both orders wrong (just brought the wrong dishes.) It took her two more tries and another 40 minutes to get what we originally ordered. The food was unimpressive but came at exorbitant prices. For two (no alcohol) the bill was just about $ 80. The food was... okay but certainly was not good. My advice is to skip this restaurant.

    I wish they would have had a menu posted when I went to make reservations. Food was good, but was more than I really wanted to spend going out for dinner with my 3 year old. The kids pizza was huge, actually the same size as the pizza my husband and I shared. I liked that all the ingredients were fresh and local. Sadly, I was disappointed in the prices.

    We dine here on a weekly basis, usually the entire family (9 or 10) and we have never been disappointed. The specials are always diverse and the staples (some of us order the same dish repeatedly) are always prepared consistently delicious! Love the space, open kitchen so you can see the work in progress, nice distance between seating so you don't have to hear the neighboring diner's conversation! We book on line which is very convenient. Oh, the bread is AWESOME!

    Our waiter was prompt to take our drink and dinner orders but after that was scarce. My mother ordered fish which she said was good. My pizza on the other hand, was doughy and barely cooked. What was described as pizza with Parmesan, asiago cheese, onion, artichoke, prosciutto, and tomato was just some barely-cooked dough with RAW vegetables tossed on top. Took 10 minutes to flag down someone to take it back for re-cooking. At that point my mother had finished her meal. When the pizza finally returned (with a fake apology from our now-returned waiter), it didn't look much better and the veggies were still raw. I had a slice and took the rest home. If you have pizza on the menu, it should be good! I won't be going back anytime soon.

    We loved the food, very eclectic and craftily made, waiter, (Domanic), super great, knows how to be personal with customers and presents the menu items with knowledge and finesse:) Only thing I would alter is the noise coming from the restaurant (small child making a lot of unhappy noises:(. Perhaps putting something up that is more sound resistant between the restaurant and the bar area? No matter, we will be back and cant wait to bring our guests along:) Kudos to the chefs and all the staff!

    My overall experience with Restaurant Pizzico was one to remember. First it was my first time, and the service was on point. The food however was a bit of a disappointment. I did not enjoy the cold cheese topped bread & the freshly made pasta was not cooked long enough. My drink was really good though. Overall I wouldn't let the food stop me from coming again. I will definitely make my way to restaurant Pizzico I the near future, I would just order something else:-)

    Had never been there before, but was very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, food, and server. Went there with family for a Mother's Day lunch. My husband and I split a pizza and garden salad which was delicious. Will definitely have to go back and try some of the other entrees. Everything looked so good!

    We eat at Pizzico in Barrington RI at least once a week. Whether it is with my entire family and a reservation for 10 with a high chair for my granddaughter or my husband and I dining by ourselves, we are never disappointed. The food is always prepared as promised, and special requests are always accepted. The bread is fabulous! We are happy to recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    Unanimous thumbs up from our party of four from the appetizers to the entrees. With this restaurant's focus on locally grown, caught and raised products, the quality and freshness of ingredients is evident The Margarita pizza, veal and chicken parmiagiano burst with flavor. The filet mignon special was cooked to perfection. No need to travel Federal Hill in Providence for good Italian food.

    Because of the weather, we were forced to change plans a couple of times. We had eaten at Pizzico East Side once and enjoyed so decided to try this one. Very pleased with everything. It was a Sunday evening so it was not that busy. Food was excellent, we asked for nothing, and it was reasonably priced. We will go there again.

    I brought my girlfriend here for valentines day and we both loved it. There was an aroma of smoke from the brick fired oven which wasnt over bearing at all. The food was delicious and would definitely recommend the pumpkin filled ravioli with pesto sauce. Over all the food was good, ambiance was very good especially for a special/ romantic date, and the service was quick and polite.

    Bar tender did not prepare drink per request. When informed of the error he did not correct it. We were then seated at our table and ordered but were not offered bread. We eventually had to asked our waitress for bread. At one point during dinner, it got very smoky in the restaurant. Then it got very cold and breezy. Apparently there must have been some sort of kitchen incident.

    My husband and I were late making plans for Valentine's day, and couldn't get reservations anywhere. As fans of Pizzico in Providence, we happily made a reservation at their place in Barrington, and weren't sorry we did! The food was, as usual, outstanding. Everything, from the eggplant tower to the pumpkin seed coated salmon to the tiramisu, was fresh and tasty. The wine list wasn't huge, but adequate, and the service was wonderful. We showed up 45 minutes early and they still were able to seat us. On the whole, a totally pleasant experience!

    Busy Friday night yet serviced wasn't rushed. We were able to savor every bite but could see we were being 'watched' in case we needed anything. It has a different vibe from Providence - so don't go in and expect it to be the same -- there's more space, it's more open - but it still tastes delicious.

    Pizzico is a really nice niche restaurant with good quality ingredients and a menu with a variety of different meal options for all tastes. Although I liked my meal alot (filet of sole), both my husband and my daughter thought their meals (both had pasta meals), although very good, could have been better enhanced with more seasoning (salt?). The service and our server was first quality. We will definitely go to Pizzico again.

    My son, and daughter told me that there is a restaurant that has great food, service and easy parking , that was 15 min from my home. When they told me the name, I thought that they were a pizza place. Boy, was I wrong. I ordered the sea bass with risotto and it was the best I have had. There were four of us there on this night and everything we ordered, was delicious. Great restaurant to give family, or friends gift certificates, you will not go wrong.

    We have been to Pizzico on Hope Street in Providence many times over many years and it remains one of our favorite Italian restaurants. We tried Barrington expecting the same excellent food and service. We were a bit dissappointed with our experience in Barrington. An entree done with peppers when ordered without. Side of pappardelle was not cooked, not hot and then replaced with another type pasta. The waiter was adequate but not engaging and aloof. All in all, not a perfect night. A bit surprising, especially the pasta which should be perfect at a restaurant like Pizzico. It seems they may have had an off night and understanding that can happen occaisionally, we will try Barrington again sometime and definitely keep going to Hope Street.

    The setting was quite attractive.The server was attentive, but lacked a certain polish. We felt a bit rushed at times. He spoke in the third person, which we found slightly off-putting. He has clearly not been trained to provide that extra-special discrete service that you would expect in a place trying for a higher end dining experience. The food was mediocre. We always measure Italian restaurants by their red sauce. I ordered eggplant parmesan. The red sauce did not have a good taste. The eggplant was unevenly cooked. My husband ordered an Alfredo pasta dish.The taste of the sauce was mediocre. We did not care for the bread and dipping sauce. A plain Italian bread with a good crust, with plain olive oil for dipping would have been better.
