This was our first time visiting your restaurant (my girlfriends and I have a regular monthly birthday luncheon), we were all pleasantly surprised when we walked inside — they all loved it.

Good food, great service, a little pricey on the wine, $7.50 for a glass of $10 a bottle wine, nice piano bar, interior is very dated and would look nice if it were freshened up...Miguel was terrific.....we go there occasionally but would go more often if it were a little nicer.....but overall excellent.

Piccolo Mondo never fails to satisfy. We are always greeted warmly and seated promptly at table (which)we reserved). The service is attentative with out being intrusive. Do try the salon dish and also the chicken piccata. The spinach ravioli is also a favorite.

We have visited Piccolo Mondo many times over the years, and found it to be a very nice restaurant. The atmosphere and service remain very good, but the food was very average. The food quality did not meet the price paid.

My husband and I went for my birthday dinner. Although we had reservations and were seated right away, we were not provided with menus or water until 10 minutes later. When we requested a wine list, the waiter seemed annoyed. The food was delicious and the wine was very smooth. We went for the piano, but the voice level was so loud that we could hardly hear the music. We will likely go back again, but only for a special occasion and with lower expectations on service.

This is one of Arlington's most romantic restaurants. A wonderful piano player starts playing around 7:00, adding to an already fine ambiance. The Italian food is first rate, best in Arlington. The service is professional and friendly. Very good wine list. Nothing not to like here!

Overall we had a great experience. We went there on our anniversary and were given a complimentary dessert without even asking for one. And it seemed everyone knew it was a important night. The food was good but not amazing, not bad by any means. We both just love to cook at home and are very particular. Either way it was a great date night.

We were nearby for a conference and looked for highly rated restaurants nearby. You would never know that a location like this in a strip mall would be so lovely inside with a pianist as well. Our server was very attentive with a good sense of humor but did disappear toward the end of the meal, so we waiting quite a while before our check. Lasagna and Mahi Mahi were great! The sorbets we decided on for dessert were surprisingly each served in a shell depicting their flavor--coconut in a coconut shell, peach in a peach half etc. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a great dinner experience in the area.

Took my wife, grown children and parents for a birthday dinner. The restaurant was full and the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed. Service was slow and it was so loud you couldn’t have a conversation without yelling across the table. I love this restaurant, the food is great but it was not the ideal place that evening to enjoy special time with the family.
