Our favorite place for spaghetti ! Always get the pistachio cream sauce and the Bolognese.
Excellent food and service; our favorite Italian restaurant in the are.
This is a very casual place, without tablecloths or cloth napkins, but with comfortable, cushioned chairs. It was not too noisy even though it was fairly busy, so it was possible for the three of us to converse without shouting. The service was very good, although we did wait a bit for our wine to arrive. The arugula salad was good, and plenty for three people, the special risotto with scallops was excellent, as was the linguine di mare. The veal piccata was delicious, but one of the three pieces of meat was a bit tough and didn't get eaten. We would definitely go back if we need to dine in this area again.
Always a great stop in Arlington...fun place...good food...good service!!
Why this place is booked a lot is beyond me. The food was average. The pizza was not anything special, the crust and sauce were not as tasty as they looked. The place is casual with kids and young families. I was hoping for quaint Italian cafe, the outside looks so cute, but the food was a big disappointment.
Phenomenal. We loved our server, and several managers came by during our meal to ask us how it was. Just great all around. (And a quick kitchen!).
Delightful, charming Italian trattoria, with generous tasty portions of rustic food.
The food and drinks were amazing. We will be back!!
Authentic Italian in a rustic setting. Loved it. Highly recommend! Location is opposite of the busy Clarendon area, but easily walkable.
Il Radicchio is a small cozy Italian restaurant. The staff are friendly, helpful, and helped make my husband's birthday into a really nice evening. The ambiance is peaceful - the walls are decorated with cute farm animals that gives it a woodsy comforting feeling. I highly recommend the Penne Pollo - this dish was so good, I just had to soak up all the sauce into the bread before I left. My husband got the all you can eat pasta and built his own dish with all of his favorites. The tiramisu is very good as well. Not to mention, the prices are very affordable. This place makes for a nice evening out with family or someone special.
Good food, good value. Nice neighborhood restaurant. Friendly, efficient staff.
Wonderful food and service! They couldn't have been nicer to us that evening.
As usual, we greatly enjoyed our visit. The only downside is that because the gorgonzola-pistachio pasta is so delicious, we never try anything else. Our friend, for whom this was the first visit, ordered the mushroom pasta and wished she'd chosen gorgonzola-pistachio. we will definitely be back!!
Had no chicken - at all!!! I’ve never been to a restaurant that ran out of chicken, especially when it’s one of their featured entrees!!
We love this place. The service is attentive without hovering, and you can carry on a conversation without shouting across the table to be heard. The salads are great, and they have a nice selection of Italian wines (by the glass or bottle). The pizza is a good, wood-fired pizza, but we prefer the pasta dishes. There is a great neighborhood feel to the place. Good for groups, or a quiet evening for two.
Create your own pasta dishes tasted good, but for the final price, not good value.
Loved the quaint ambiance, homemade fresh pasta, and cappuccino with foam milk floating on top like what we see in the streets of Italy!
Food is consistently good. This time we’re seated upstairs and it was freezing.
Sweet Mom+Pop Italian Bistro. Casual. Great place for a date or family dinner.
Excellent menu and food execution. Ambiance is very neighborhood casual which is what I was looking for. Service was good but a little rushed.
My husband and I live in New Jersey and we come to Radicchio every year to celebrate our anniversary. It very cozy and intimate. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful.
Love the food and service was great/ will definitely recommend
Nice food and service , worth to try !
Snagged a reservation at the last minute for Sat night, and loved the homey atmosphere, attentive service and menu choices. Our arugula salad was lightly dressed and enough for 2 (maybe 3) and a perfect accompaniment to our pasta ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs entrees. Delicious. Tables included couples, families, an adult group of 8 and smaller tables on the two floors. Most seemed to be ordering pizza, which looked delicious. It was our first visit; may try the pizza next time. Definitely a friendly, home style dining experience. Prices were easy on the wallet; one-half carafe of house red was $18.
Very nice. No music, no noises, easy to have a conversation, quiet, pleasant. Good food.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this restaurant. The food was delicious, and for that we'll definitely be returning. We had marked on OpenTable when making the reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion, but the server and restaurant never acknowledged that. Was slightly disappointing, but did not take away from a pleasant evening. It's a charming neighborhood restaurant with delicious fare.
We come here at least once every 2/3 weeks. The food is always nice and tasty and the Service is always great. It’s a little crammed in their and the tables are getting a bit used, but the food and service easily makes up for it.
Wonderful service, food, and environment! Great for a date night or low-key quality meal out. Will return and highly recommend!
Got some wine, an appetizer and two pasta plates. Very good and nice service. Cozy atmosphere
We enjoyed the experience at Il Radicchio. It was recommended by a friend as one of the more authentic Italian restaurants in the Arlington area and we agree. We will return again.
Consistently wonderful...a real gem of a place. This is one place that everyone in the family agrees on every time.
Our server apparently forgot to tell us about the Valentines Day specials. Didn’t find out they had specials for the night until we overheard another server describing them to his table.
Delicious food and very attentive and pleasingly friendly service. There were one or two patrons that detracted from the atmosphere, including one person video chatting without earphones, but overall a great experience.
Amazing food, quaint and cozy vibe. I highly recommend the tomato soup!
We absolutely love the food and staff! Always delicious and excellent service.
My friends and I enjoy coming to this restaurant. We appreciate the freshness of the food and the family feel of the dining room. You almost feel like you’re in someone’s home enjoying a nice, home cooked dinner. The ultimate Italian meal is in Italy, but if you happen to be in Arlington, then Il Radicchio is definitely the place for a great Italian meal. You will not be disappointed!
Others at the table seemed to enjoy their meal. I got chicken parm and it wasn't that hot and the pasta was overcooked. I also didn't like the way they hovered around waiting to take my plate away while I was clearing still eating. Others had finished but I had not. The Caesar salad I had was great but huge, good for sharing.
Dinner date. Food was excellent. Two thumbs up!
Charming restaurant, good food, good service. Appreciate the music at a level conducive to conversation. Was touched by drawings of small woodland creatures on the walls.
