I have eaten at Il Radicchio for years. They remember us even after being away for a while. The food is superb, all of it. And they have decent red wine, too.
Honestly, I am baffled by the high marks on this restaurant. We were placed upstairs, it was cold, loud and looked and felt like I was in someone’s empty attic. The food was okay, but I can make more delicious sauce at home. The waiters were nice but they forgot to bring our drinks until the food came, they offered a salad for the entire table of five and it was large enough for maybe two. I was NOT impressed. Well there’s an Arlington restaurant off my list.
We love the food here--especially the bruschetta on lovely grilled garlicky bread topped with chopped tomatoes and basil. The food is never greasy, but served at ideal temperature. The eggplant is great, the pastas are great, you might pass on the veal, but everything is well-prepared. Service is friendly.
Very nice and quaint place. It was a place to go to if you want to feel cozy with your family or significant other.
We were greeted immediately and seated. We are off of water and requesting our drinks upon being seated. Excellent service.
I had the artichoke ravioli. Very skimpy on the filling. The sauce and mushrooms were outstanding, almost over powering the Skippy ravioli.
The wife had make your own pasta and it was more than ample. She enjoyed it very much and that’s what I would get if I go back again.
Wish they would serve cocktails instead of just beer and wine.
This is our favorite place for Italian. It's the one place that everyone in the family loves without complaint. The food is wonderful, fresh and tasty every time. I'm the kind of person who usually settles into one thing that's my go-to at a restaurant, but everything I've tried at Il Radicchio is so good that I can't find just one favorite! As good as the food is, the people are even better. The waitstaff is warm and genuinely friendly. They're happy to recommendations if you ask, but they don't push you towards the most expensive items on the menu. We recently celebrated my son's birthday at Il Radicchio and the folks there made it truly wonderful.
Great Neighborhood Restaurant. Food and ambiance is always excellent.
This restaurant lived up to its reputation. My husband and I were in Rosslyn for a Christmas visit with family and had an evening to ourselves. Il Radiccio was walking distance from our AirBnb, so we decided to give it a try based on Open Table Reviews. We had a first floor corner table, nice and quiet. We ordered wine, salads, lasagne and chicken parmigiana, and shared the frozen lemon dessert (cannot remember the name), and both of us enjoyed it very much. We will definitely return the next time we are in Rosslyn.
Another wonderful dinner at Il Radiccio! This has become our favorite restaurant since moving back to the area from Europe a few months ago. The food and service are always excellent. Recommend sitting downstairs if they have availability- we sat upstairs and the service was still excellent but atmosphere wasn’t quite as fun as our normal table downstairs. Highly recommend this restaurant!
delicious food - consistently good - friendly service - excellent value!
Excellent! Very accommodating staff.
Amazing, definitely fresh and delicious! I got the pick your own pasta and the pesto Alfredo was beyond anything I’ve ever tasted! was a little disappointed in the bacon wrapped scallops it was 2 for $11 not great but everything else was beyond tasteful even there wine selection! will be back!

Service and food was excellent. Always a great trip to this restaurant.
Great food, exceptional wine list, attentive service in a low-key casual setting.
Wonderful food and friendly service.
The food is always good here. The menu doesn't change, but it doesn't need to. There's a full assortment of pastas, meats, pizzas, all made with care.
Just the best neighborhood restaurant; good food and excellent service.
We ate there for a pasta dinner before the Marine Corps Marathon - food was wonderful and service was great despite being very busy. Would definitely recommend.
Food was soooo good. Very friendly service, casual atmosphere.
Lovely little neighborhood gem! We we in town for one night and were so happy we stopped in.
We decided to try Il Radicchio because it was not far from our hotel. We did make an online reservation beforehand.
We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. We decided on a bottle of wine, orecchiette with mushrooms and marinara sauce, and lobster ravioli. Both were fantastic. The pasta serving was generous enough that we had some left over to save for lunch the next day.
Total bill was approximately $80.
We had reservations but ended up having to wait about 15 min past that for our table. We ordered wine, however only had 3 people drinking because I am pregnant, our waitress accidentally poured wine into my full wine glass. Next we ordered appetizers and food... she never brought one of the appetizers. My husbands veal was super tough and the broccolini tasted like cooking gas.... our waitress never came back after entrees and we had to ask another server for the check and boxes. Aside from the veal... the other meals were tasty but the service put a damper on the experience.
Good food as usual; great service as usual; a neighborhood gem!
My husband and I have been to Il Radicchio twice and it's a real treat, especially since it can be so hard to find quality Italian food in this area. Portion sizes are just right. Pizza, pasta, appetizers are all amazing: great flavors, cooked well, served piping hot. This is a perfect date night spot!
Friendly, neighborhood place. In retrospect we would have been better off with pizza or pasta rather than more complicated entrees. Will try that next time.
Delicious dinner, amiable atmosphere
Nice spot for dinner with colleagues. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. The food was good and the pasta stood out as fresh.
This is a great place for informal dining with friends or family. The pasta sauce was delicious and the salmon was huge. I’ll go back.
Food was outstanding. Very busy and the wait staff was a little slow to come back for orders and get attention for the bill. Otherwise really good. I had not been there in quite some time and will come again soon.
We were upstairs and it was painfully loud,making conversation impossible at times. I literally couldn’t hear the person across the table from me. My friend told me that’s unusual, and I do think the noise was mainly coming from one large party
It’s a neighborhood gem. Feels like I’m at someone’s home eating a great meal. Love the place and the staff!!!
