Always good, always great service! Our 96 year old guest was treated like a king on his birthday. Salmon was excellent as were the other menu selections. Thank you, Piccolo Mondo staff!

We've supported Piccolo's and Antonio for 30+ years. One of my families favorite night's out. Rudy, Carlos and several servers have been with Antonio since his opening. They're competent and professional and match the quality of the food.

My family and I had a graduation celebration at Piccolo Mondo. It was fantastic. The place was beautiful and the tables were nicely spaced so you could enjoy your intimacy. The food was excellent and so was the service. To top it off a piano player and a saxophonist played beautiful music. It was such a delightful evening. I wish piccolo mondo had another restaurant near me in New Jersey!!

Took my fiancé out to celebrate her birthday and it was not a good experience. When we arrived, the host/manager was rude and seemed upset that we were not regulars. He walked us over and just pointed to a table saying “you’re over there”. Not the experience we were expecting coming from the reviews we have heard about this place.

From the appetizer to the entrees and desserts I would say this place is overrated and overpriced. If you appear to be young or are younger, expect to receive a lower level of service. Being that it was our first time, I was disappointed the server did not go over any of the items on the menu or specials when I informed him.

Overall, I would not recommend coming here. There are other options close by like Spazzio’s that will give you better food and definitely better service.

Read great review of restaurant, knowing I’d be in Arlington area....made reservation. Did not disappoint. Loved the classic service....the Old World atmosphere and the best linguine with white clam sauce ever! Thank you to server who gave us his full attention (sometimes, servers are dismissive of two women dining, but not our server, a true professional).

Piccolo Mondo was our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant for over 10 years when we lived in Arlington. We return once a year now and have dinner at Piccolo Mondo on our first night back. It’s still the same great neighborhood gem that it was when we were weekly regulars, and the same great staff are still there too, a testament to its quality and popularity. We’ll see you next time we’re in town!

First time at Piccolo Mondo. The food was amazing and the service was on point - what more could you ask for? After the meal my date and I were approached by another couple who told us they had been patrons of Piccolo Mondo for over thirty years and that the food and service has always been consistent. Their comments prompted the table next to ours to respond in kind! It’s good to know that restaurants that are committed to excellence and maintaining a good reputation still exist in these times. I will definitely be back...
