We enjoyed a pre-theater meal with friends. Since we were there in the early evening, the initial crowd was thin and the noise level was very conducive to conversation.By the time we left, the crowd had picked up nicely. Food was good but nothing I'd say was exceptional. We did enjoy the Bruschetta appetizer and the spinach ravioli. Service was also attentive.

We gathered my nieces and daughter to celebrate the end of their university year here. We all enjoyed our appetizers, salads and pasta dishes. Our waiter helped us with a tasty gluten-free pasta and suggested a good main course. Service was a bit slow as it became more crowded later in the meal, but we enjoyed our evening very much. This place looks much nicer inside than the dull strip center exterior would suggest.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening celebrating our Wedding Anniversary at Piccolo Mondo. The atmosphere are lovely and the food was outstanding. We would definitely return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed, attentive, and friendly. The noise level was actually quiet to moderate. It was a perfect setting for a wonderful celebration!!

WOW, where to start. First off, walking in you wouldn't expect the inside to be so nice. The ambiance looks like fine, and upscale dining. The lady who greeted us was very polite, welcoming and friendly. I judge the place by the bread! They give a generous amount of bread and it is fresh, warm! YUMM!!! What made this the best experience was our server, Miguel! Miguel, was so passionate about food and made the experience so special! He definitely made me more excited about trying the food. WOW-OH-WOW!!! Everything did not disappoint!!! Everything, I mean everything was absolutely delicious!!!! Thank you so much! I would say this is our new favorite restaurants. Too bad we don't live closer or we would come here everyday. Thank you, and thanks Miguel for a wonderful date night experience.

We have been coming here for our wedding anniversary for 30 years running. Antonio and his staff have always went above & beyond to make our dining experience exceptional! In my book, they are second to none! The menu has many options from which to chose and the pastas literally melt in your mouth. Check the blackboard coming in as they have some of the most outstanding dishes that are not listed on the menu. The bar is cozy complete with a baby grand piano.

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.

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!

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.
