I had never been to this restaurant before. The clientele is rather up in years. It seems like a fine place, just different than what I expected.

Food was fine but nothing special. We expected more given the review on Trip Advisor. It was also very loud. We won’t be returning.

An old fashion Italian, family, restaurant. Quite noisy, but a very nice place to take the family and friends.
Very nice place with good, attentive service.

The food was delicious and prices were reasonable. It wasn’t crowded and service was prompt. There was a piano player along with someone playing a horn. Felt like a special occasion which is how it should always be.

We've eaten at PM for years. The food and service are consistently excellent. The lasagna is the best I've eaten, including the lasagna I've had in Italy. The atmosphere is relaxing. Prices are moderately expensive. Highly recommended.

Piccolo Mondo entrees are usually exceptionally good however this time I had the Veal Scallopini Parmesan and the veal was well fried but then drowned in sauce so it lost all crispness and the sauce had a little bitter taste. However my wife’s Shrimp Pasta dish was excellent.

Best Italian I've found in dfw. A little pricey, but not too bad, and definitely worth the coin. Also lunch time, eggplant parm is the way to go. Legendary!

Piccolo Mondo is a neighborhood gem that my family adores. It’s our go-to place for special occasions. Ambiance is wonderful, upscale but not stuffy. Staff is attentive, service top-notch. Food is sometimes better than others but consistently good with nice options and daily specials. We love this place!

Food was good but not as good as similar places in the price range. Being one of the few upscale places in Arlington , the proprietors are at a great advantage. The live music was fun and nicely executed, but the mauve walls pair poorly with portions of the restaurant that are visually sparse; thus the less than perfect ambiance rating.

We've eaten at Piccolo Mondo for about 30 years and are never disapponted. Food, service and atmosphere is always the best. Valentine's dinner was no exception, although they do increase the prices which I don't understand. They had a full house but didn't rush us or bring our check until we were completely finished. Exceptional dining experience!

Very Great Experience... my daughter requested oil and vinegarette dressing for her salad, and gluten free pasta and the were kind and accomodated her dietary needs... Our waiter was busy but very attentive and engaging.... Brilliant attentive service, one of the best romantic restaurants in Arlington!

My husband and I arrived at the restaurant and was seated promptly. Our waiter was excellent !! The atmosphere was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. We loved the piano music and she played my requested song of "Fly Me To The Moon". At the end of our wonderful meal we where going to order Tiramisu but to our surprise our waiter brought us a yummy dessert dish with a light candle. I highly recommend Piccolo Mondo for great food and service.

We love Piccolo Mondo and have dined there for years. The food is outstanding and a great value. Service is always perfect! We usually meet friends before dinner for cocktails in the bar. The bar tender has been there for years and knows us and our friends; she always is friendly and takes great care of our bar needs. Can’t go wrong with cocktails and dinner at Piccolo Mondo!

After many very good dining experiences over the years, this the first time that the food was lacking and that the service was only fair to poor. Veal Marsela dish, soup of the day and Caesar salad were pedestrian in taste. Our waiter seemed mechanical and perhaps inexperienced and not attentive, which is the opposite of our prior experiences. The size of our party necessitated being seated close to the performers, so that, in addition to the fact that the table was in a heavy foot traffic area all made it difficult for us to converse. However, kudos as usual to the talented piano and saxophone performers. This is one of the very few places to be able to enjoy a lounge area with a variety of music including Cole Porter and the great songs of early and mid 20th century. We believe our Saturday night experience was an aberration and definitely will return.

The food at this restaurant was really good and quite authentic. We had difficulty understanding what some of the dishes were as many were in Italian. The waiter explained them when we asked. However, this was a department luncheon and although the food came out quickly, the service was not fast and we ended up waiting for quite some time after the meal for wait staff to come to our table. Since it was a workday, we were unable to order dessert as we ran out of time just waiting.
