we enjoyed the visit to Pizzicato. The reviews that we read said it was a landmark so we were a little surprised that the ambiance was kind of plain. Service was slow because there was one waitress for the whole place. She was doing her best but they should have had more help. The food, however was top notch. Only go if you are not in a rush.
perfect place to meet friends before or after a flick. my friends and i always meet at pizzicato before a film. i can't stop eating the BBQ chicken pizza with the balsamic red onions. pizzas, salads, sandwiches--all good.
Great salads--Ceasar and artichoke/asparagus--and delicious pasta. Wonderful linguini with veggies.
Had reservations for 2pm and arrive five minutes early. We were seated at a table which was not set up. After waiting for few minutes no menu was given so we had to ask for menus. Placed our order and after waiting 40 minutes we inquired as to the status of our order only to find out it was forgotten and they started preparing after we complained. Meal was brought but we still had no utensils. Asked for utensils and the order was still not complete. Order of one member of group was not prepared and they then started to prepare after we asked for the meal. Horrible service. No coordination and zero service. Never again.
I've come to this restaurant at least a dozen times over the past 15 years or more. The food is always fantastic, as the kitchen puts out delicious and interesting Nuevo-Italian dishes. Unfortunately, the service has fallen off significantly.
Pizzicato's food was good. The wine was just ok. It's a very small place and our bartender was the server for the restaurant. I'm not sure if I'd go back because the dinerish booths of the restaurant did not match the food. Maybe I'd go back for lunch but not dinner.
This spot was very very tiny. My table was 8 inches from the next table. Ditto for the opposite side. Due to close proximity a conversation with my husband was almost impossible. HOWEVER, the FOOD was amazing! I had gnocchi and my hubby had a BBQ pizza. Food service was quick but unpersonable as our server was 1 of 2 servers working. I would order my good to go next time I am in the area.
My linguine with clams was so salty that it was inedible; however, at my request, the chef did prepare a substitute dish with no salt. I shared the artichoke heart/zucchini fries appetizer. My friend and I agreed that the artichoke hearts were tasty, but the zucchini fries were not. There was insufficient bleu cheese sauce to accompany the dish. The bread was mediocre, at best. The waiter was friendly and helpful and handled my complaint professionally and with courtesy.
We love Pizzicato's salads, pizza, and pasta dishes. The artichoke with zucchini fries are delicious.
Only had time for a quick bite as we had to get folks back on their way for a baseball stadium bus tour. Service was friendly and courteous, and food--the little we had since it was early and we had eaten lunch at the baseball game--was very good. Pastas being served all around us looked wonderful. Veal sliders were excellent.
We had Father's Day lunch at Pizzicato and I wish I'd chosen a different restaurant once I walked in the door. The restaurant was relatively empty. The food was ok, not bad, not good. The restaurant needs a serious handyman. Plaster on the walls is chipping. The walls are dirty. The feel of the restaurant is dirty. It starts with the menus that are bent (at best) and have multiple food stains - disgusting. A good way to make bad impressions. Stay away until they clean the place up.
One of the best calamari I've had in a long time. The service was great and this place was very chill. Definitely will be coming back in the future.
The food was excellent! The kids had the four cheese pizza - so good! My husband raved about the lasagna. The ravioli with basil cream sauce was the best I ever had.
As always, the food was delicious and the service--from the manager to the busboy--was offered with a warm smile.
We had an excellent dinner and were served by a personable, knowledgable waitress. She clearly explained the dishes we asked about , the food was ready very quickly, and was excellent. Almost as important to us was the quiet noise level, which added to our pleasure with Pizzicato. We will definitely return for meals in the future.
