Ristorante Piccolo

Established in 1986, Ristorante Piccolo is a romantic and unique Italian trattoria with walls of sun-blessed amber hues, full of the warm-hearted wines and food that match the spirit of Italy, loved by Washingtonians and visitors alike! It is a tiny gem just off the beaten path in Georgetown, offering one of the best seats in Georgetown—a second-floor balcony overlooking Georgetown and the historic C & O Canal, and is a very popular spot for rehearsal dinners and celebrations. Piccolo will happily surprise you with its excellent food, service, wine and atmosphere--with three cozy-lit fireplaces, 2 beautiful wall water features and unique ironwork throughout, adding to the warmth and romance of the restaurant. A strolling violinist sets the perfect mood for romantic dining on Friday and Saturday evenings, and can also be hired for that special party. Piccolo has recently won TASTE OF GEORGETOWN's Best Entree, & a Diner's Choice award from OpenTable for Most Romantic

"Dinner was excellent as always, especially for vegetarians. Great wine to pair with our food.
For a wed. night, we thought they were super busy (perhaps that's their norm), service was a bit slow at times. We will still go back, as the food is good, and service is good too (we saw our waiter waiting on a larger group and was super busy too).

"I had three non-drinking age college girls with me for dinner and the only thing the waiter could think of was how to get us in and out as quickly as possible. They even brought the entrees while we were still eating our appetizers. Very rude. Food was decent but who had time to enjoy it?"

"We dined here on a busy Friday evening at 8:30 after making reservations 2 weeks in advance. The maitre'D was extremely accommodating seating us 15 minutes early. Two different veal dishes were very nicely prepared. A stuffed portobello mushroom appetizer was tasty and large enough to be split. The menu was nice and varied. The atmosphere was quite lively and pleasant. Overall, Ristorante Piccolo is a solid restaurant with very attentive service."

"Absolutely loved the dinner my date and I had at Ristorante Piccolo! The service was fantastic (not too much oversight by the waiter, just enough to keep our glasses full and plates cleared when need-be) and food was really delicious. The staff was accommodating to us moving upstairs rather than be in the nosier downstairs and it is well worth it. Would have loved to have sat on the deck, but it was a little chilly for that. So we'll have to come back to do it again!"

"The food was great. The service was good, too. The biggest downside was the large family group with kids right next to us. The restaurant is a small space, so you can't help but be close to other tables. And this group of a dozen or so at the tables next to us clearly had gotten an early start (some had small kids) on drinking and dinner, especially the drinking. They were very LOUD. The restaurant was still not very busy, so I'm not sure why the four of us were seated right next to them as opposed to elsewhere in the restaurant. However, most of this was not the restaurant's fault, but the group's; people need to realize there are other people around, and need to control their VOLUME. It was out of control. At one point, all the other tables just stopped, and everyone turned around and stared at the group. Thank goodness ours was just a dinner for four with friends. If it had been a date or romantic occasion, it would have been ruined. That being said, the food was excellent, outstanding, and the service was very good, too."

"Was able to get reservations on short notice and food was great. I had the pasta amaciatrana which had just the right amount of spice, pancetta and cheese. Could have used slightly less sauce, but maybe that is just a peccadillo of mine. It seems to me like most American italian restaurants use too much sauce. Anyway it was delicious. My daughter had the ravioli that they are famous for. She said it was delicious and it must have been; there was none to share!"

"The service was good at the door, but the waiter was a little rude, and I was shepherded into a corner. I hoped for good food, but it was extremely mid tier, and again, service did not improve. Would not go back. Thoroughly disappointed."
