We come here every year on our anniversary! We come early to get a table on the balcony. They make us feel special and the service and food are consistently outstanding.
The service and food is really good,
we had Mushroom Ravioli!! OMG!!! One of the best dishes I had !!
and Tortellini Carbonara, very creamy and full of flavor !!
I super recommend this restaurant ❤️
This is a great old school Italian restaurant. What a Gem!!!! Definitely enjoy the atmosphere as well as the fresh made pasta👍
The food was delicious and filling (but not overwhelming). The customer service was great! I came to celebrate my birthday and the manager surprised me and had their violinist come play happy birthday to me. The waiter was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the menu. Overall, I had a great first experience! Would highly recommend.
It was a nice time
The food was exceptional, as always, and I enjoyed the recommendation of the salmon carpaccio on a hot summer day. The restaurant has nicely expanded into some socially-distanced tables on the sidewalk and street, giving it a nice vibe of a bistro in the old country. The service was expedient and friendly.
An awesome time with great food
Piccolos is our favorite restaurant for all special occasions, from birthdays to anniversaries. They are consistently outstanding!
Great food and great service.
Nabil is the greatest!!
I wanted to like this place so much, but was ultimately let down. I asked if the gnocchi was homemade since On their Facebook there is a video of them making it. The server told me yes but once I received my dish, it was clearly not home made but store bought. The sauce they used was entirely too sour and didn’t complement the gnocchi. I thought perhaps I had found an authentic Italian restaurant in the area to make my go to, but I guess my search continues. I was really looking forward to some homemade gnocchi too. Instead all I got was store bought mushy gnocchi for $28. Blah.
Excellent food and service. Top notch
The appetizers were okay, but the entrees, desserts and service were outstanding. Has always been one of my favorite places in Georgetown.
Our food was excellent, our waiter attentive, and the seating on the balcony was ideal for us. We had a wonderful anniversary celebration.
Friendly staff - adorable outside seating on a charming street. Delicious pasta!!!
Service was appropriately attentive, well timed and very professional. The quality of the food was excellent, each dish was well seasoned and portions were more than adequate. Prices were very reasonable.
Food was mediocre
Service was good
Delicious food and wine! Quaint lovely restaurant- attentive service.
Will definitely be back!!
The food was decent but I would say go try somewhere else for the price.
Food is amazing!!! I’ve been to Venice and Rome and I felt like I was back there. Could not say anything better
Outstanding food and service!
Great service, great meal. A little cramped, warm and noisy upstairs where we ate, but well worth it. We'll be back.
Such a fun experience! The food was incredible. The entire restaurant was very cozy. Live violinist was a great touch!
food was amazing. super nice waiter, it was just so so so loud. could barely have a conversation at the table.
This as a very small, cute little Bistro with excellent food. The black Cod was incredible. Very few restaurants have black cod because it is so expensive. My wife’s Osso Bucco was wonderful. Tender and juicy. Our waiter was a pro and the bartender made the best Martinis.
Perfect for our family group of nine that is unable to get together often enough. Food and service were outstanding from appetizers through dessert. Kind and thoughtful staff. Highly recommend!
One loud horrible singing table lol
By far the best restaurant I've been to in D.C. and the best Italian food I've had ever - even better than the restaurants I've visited in Italy itself. The waiter and manager were very kind and efficient - the service was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious. We had two pasta dishes and an appetizer. The pictures don't do this place justice. Definitely a great date-night spot!
Prompt seating on a Friday evening, great service, good noise level for conversation. Tasty Italian food.
A little pricey for entrees. Inside is very quaint, however we were seated just inside the entrance and got the cold air whenever opened so took away from our experience.
My husband and I have eaten here on numerous occasions. We live locally and can walk to this location so in Georgetown, where there are numerous dining options, Ristorante Piccolo is our "go to" whenever we have friends in town visiting or just want a consistently excellent meal and service.
It can get a bit crowded on a Saturday nights, so reservations are a must. My favorite "Main Plate" is the Fettuccine Oceano--Pan-roasted lobster meat, shrimp, scallops with a light lemon cream sauce. It is so delicious I often order a second one to bring home.
There is a reason Ristorante Piccolo has been around since 1986.
Visiting our daughter!
This is my second time going and my second time being IMPRESSED! The food is amazing and the customer service matched. The food is definitely made to order, not one time did it taste boxed or frozen. I also enjoyed their raspberry soda, yum yum! It's a cute quaint little intimate spot full of delicious surprises, JUST GO!
The food was amazing and our Waiter was fun and engaging
Celebrating 7 children and 1 grandchild...and being away from them all on Valentines Day weekend. We highly recommend romantic dinners here and the food and service are excellent. You’ll be tipping well because of how great it is. Our dinner lasted a lovely 2.25 hours!
Street closed due to massive construction, which resulted in a low rumbling/vibration during the entire meal. Not the restaurants fault with all the canal work being done, but dampers the ambiance. Would definitely go back once the construction is done
The food was absolutely amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. Nabil was our waiter and provided great recommendations for our meals. Thank you so much for making our Valentine’s Day dinner incredible!!
