Went for my birthday. There was a piano player. Old world elegance in a strip mall location. Food was great. All the locals love this place. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Near the stadiums in Arlington. Will definitely go again next time I’m in Texas!

It was our grandsons 12 birthday. He loved all the attention everyone gave him and especially the profiteroles he was given with a candle

Who would of thought such a nice restaurant could be found in a strip center! Live piano accompaniment made for a delightful evening. I had a chicken/mushroom plate with a side of spinach and my husband had one of the veal plates. They have several Italian beers available, and the Piccolo Zephyr cocktail is definitely something you'll have to try. The restaurant is small -- but not crowded, cloth tablecloths and napkins, and our waiter was wonderful and clearly enjoyed his craft. And best of all . . . there were NO TVs in the restaurant or bar area.

The food was amazing and our server was excellent. Some of the diners around us were not so pleasant so it made the experience a little uncomfortable. When we tried to make our way to the restroom, the tables are squeezed in kind of tight, and they were rude about it. I would go back if there was a little more room between the tables to get by.

A really fine white tablecloth type dining establishment. Food is very good. Feel best in nice casual attire but also more dressy works too. Service is excellent.

The restaurant was very nice and service great. Also food was very good. However, we thought the price was a bit high for the amount of food received. Would have loved to order from regular menu since Valentine menu was very limited. Also, our reservation was the day after Valentine Day so not sure why regular menu was not offered. The space where we seated was toward the back of hotel and seem to have an excessive number of tables and chairs!

A minor wait to take our entree orders and we had a problem with waiters redressing nearby tables by just putting a new tablecloth down on top of the old ones(!?) However the food was delicious and hot-fresh from the kitchen. Veal was impeccably well prepared and presented. Out the door with 1 c note including tip, which was 2 entree's, 2 glass of wine, and 1 dessert. Very crowded for V-Day, so with that in consideration regarding the minor wait to place our orders.

We read about this place on Bud Kennedy’s eats. The atmosphere was romantic - had piano music playing - the lighting was soft - the decor is a little outdated but we like it. The service was amazing.. top notch! The salad and bread were great.. I had spaghetti and my husband had the lasagna. Both were good... was a not a fan of the sauce.. just not what we prefer. We recommend for a quiet and romantic dinner!

Excellent food and service, looking forward to our next visit. Enjoyed talking to the owner as he visited the tables. He was very welcoming.
The only problem was that OpenTable didn’t forward our reservation and the restaurant didn’t have us listed when we arrived. The owner was very accommodating and sat us immediately even though it was very crowded. He apologized and said it was a common occurrence with OpenTable. This is the second time I’ve booked through OpenTable, received a confirmation email and the restaurant didn’t have us listed. In the future, I’ll call rather than trust booking on line.

Service was average with wrong drink being ordered, mix up on credit card and gift card charging. Lasagne watery with little flavor, spaghetti had chili not on menu too spicy. Would try other choices next time. But overall disappointing.

My wife and i ate at Piccolo Mondo for the first time on Sunday, December 15th and if I am ever back in Arlington, it will be a must do. The food and service were outstanding,but a little slow. I understand though because they were busy. Good food takes a while to prepare but it was well worth the wait!
