Not what you expect from a strip center restaurant. Great food, nice piano music, and great service.
Great for date night! Highly recommend!

From the Escargot to the Lasagna everything was notably bland. Despite the nice atmosphere and service the food was a complete disaster which is why I could not, in good conscience, recommend this restaurant to anyone.

A restaurant & meal to behold, unlike somewhere else we had been a few days earlier. The food was plentiful & excellent. We participated in Restaurant Week & felt the choices were fantastic. We will certainly tell our friends to dine at Piccolo Mondo.

Cordial greeting. Attentive service. Food above average especially presentation. Some folks with hearing issues might find the piano distracting (but overall the music adds ambience).

Our meal was excellent, but for us the piano playing seemed a bit loud. It was pleasant, but almost too much.

The place was very good the food was old school and the service was amazing. You get water to start with and at no time was my glass empty. All staff was friendly. The place itself could use a update and it was nice to see a pianist playing great relaxing music.

What a gem! We were in town with my daughter for a college visit and found this wonderful restaurant on Open Table. The exterior belies what you will find inside - a warm, quaint and inviting atmosphere. The musicians - piano and sax - were talented and appropriate and the food was top notch. However, the stand out part of our visit to Piccolo Mondo was our waiter, Miguel. He was friendly and charming and anticipated our every need; we had a friend by the end of the evening. Easily a 5 Star experience! We will be back!!!!

Piccolo Mondo has an understated elegance artfully avoiding any pretentiousness. I can come here and feel like it is a special occasion, yet never feel out of place. Consistently good. The waitstaff has been there for as long as I can remember, and that is several years. It is truly a profession for them and it shows in their service. The food is excellent: well prepared, never over-seasoned, allowing the core ingredients of the dish to shine through. This is my wife’s favorite place.

I've just found my new favorite Italian restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was very attentive but not intrusive, and the live piano music and low overall noise level made for easy conversation. I will be back!

The food was good but not exceptional. The service was very good and friendly. We appreciated the desert we were served for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. You need to re think your garlic bread. It was very tough and mostly crust.

Came expecting a decent Italian meal (by American standards) and was blown away by the deliciousness of an authentic Siennese (the owner is from Sienna) meal. Fine food, fine service, fun evening. I will Definitely return.

We were in Grand Prairie from out of town and found this Italian restaurant. I read online that the owners were from Italy and everything was homemade. The reviews were very good. We went and ate there and I’m so glad we did. The Italian food was hands-down the best I have ever eaten, the service was great, everything was spectacular. We live nearly 300 miles away, and I will be driving back to eat here again. This place is a must. You will not be disappointed.

Awesome meal with Tuscan inspired Italian recipes (the owner is from Siena, Italy) along with hand cut Seafood and Steaks. Awesome wine list with impeccable service; many of the waiters who have been there for as long as we have been going to Piccolo Mondo - which is for over 25 years. Piccolo Mondo is truly an Arlington gem which offers excellent value every time we dine there.
