The restaurant was very nice and service great. Also food was very good. However, we thought the price was a bit high for the amount of food received. Would have loved to order from regular menu since Valentine menu was very limited. Also, our reservation was the day after Valentine Day so not sure why regular menu was not offered. The space where we seated was toward the back of hotel and seem to have an excessive number of tables and chairs!

The only negative thing to say is the valentines day menu. Prices were increased significantly. Other than that, the food and service is fantastic.

A minor wait to take our entree orders and we had a problem with waiters redressing nearby tables by just putting a new tablecloth down on top of the old ones(!?) However the food was delicious and hot-fresh from the kitchen. Veal was impeccably well prepared and presented. Out the door with 1 c note including tip, which was 2 entree's, 2 glass of wine, and 1 dessert. Very crowded for V-Day, so with that in consideration regarding the minor wait to place our orders.

We read about this place on Bud Kennedy’s eats. The atmosphere was romantic - had piano music playing - the lighting was soft - the decor is a little outdated but we like it. The service was amazing.. top notch! The salad and bread were great.. I had spaghetti and my husband had the lasagna. Both were good... was a not a fan of the sauce.. just not what we prefer. We recommend for a quiet and romantic dinner!

Excellent food and service, looking forward to our next visit. Enjoyed talking to the owner as he visited the tables. He was very welcoming.
The only problem was that OpenTable didn’t forward our reservation and the restaurant didn’t have us listed when we arrived. The owner was very accommodating and sat us immediately even though it was very crowded. He apologized and said it was a common occurrence with OpenTable. This is the second time I’ve booked through OpenTable, received a confirmation email and the restaurant didn’t have us listed. In the future, I’ll call rather than trust booking on line.

Our first visit to Piccolo Mondo was enjoyable. The restaurant was full but not crowded. We were promptly seated and served. The snapper and salmon were excellent. Thanks, Piccolo Mondo!

Service was average with wrong drink being ordered, mix up on credit card and gift card charging. Lasagne watery with little flavor, spaghetti had chili not on menu too spicy. Would try other choices next time. But overall disappointing.

My wife and i ate at Piccolo Mondo for the first time on Sunday, December 15th and if I am ever back in Arlington, it will be a must do. The food and service were outstanding,but a little slow. I understand though because they were busy. Good food takes a while to prepare but it was well worth the wait!

Food was fine, nothing inventive or creative on the menu. Great service, but dated atmosphere. Not a young crowd.
