Found this restaurant on Open Table during a business trip. I love locally owned places with good food and thus one is the real deal. Wonderful food, wine service. Try it - you’ll love it.

It was excellent. I think the tables should be spaced out just a bit more! Other than that...perfect!!

If you are from the Northeast and lucky enough to live near some very good high end Italian Restaurants then this place won't do it for you. That said, for the money and where it is, it was pretty good.

First time experience at Piccolo Mondo with my 'Last Love' on our weekly date night. Rudy was our server and from the start, we felt welcomed and he gave his full attention to our every need. The ambiance was romantic with the piano and sax player, the entire restaurant was happy, and the food was absolutely amazing! I had the rack of lamb special and my girlfriend had the Veal Parmesan. Both were prepared perfectly and there were plenty of leftovers that we shared the next day. Very extensive wine list and overall a genuinely great night. Thank you Piccolo Mondo for making our date night extra special! We will be back very soon!

We wanted a world class restaurant to celebrate my birthday, albeit belated. We wanted great food and service surpassed by none. This was our only choice.

The food here is just everything you want. I can not recommend a restaurant higher in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Only by going to New York City can you get a fancier meal, but not a better meal!

This is the place for one of the best meals you will ever have.

This was the first time we have visited Piccolo Mondo and it was great!! The atmosphere was so welcoming and when they say casual elegance, that is exactly what it was. The food was superb! There were 11 of us and everyone loved their choice. Miguel, our server went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for my sister's birthday. He gave us excellent service and treated us like we were his only table that evening even though I know we were not. The live piano and saxophone music were such a lovely addition to our evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be returning very soon!

We have eaten at Piccolo Mondo many, many times over the years. It is consistently among the very best in Arlington. My only personal disappointment is that on our last visit, broccoli instead of that wonderful spinach or green beans was the green vegetable, but I realize that some people actually like broccoli. Hard to beat Piccolo Mondo for a relaxing evening and great food.

I haven't eaten at Piccolo Mondo in nearly 15 years, but the the food and service are still impeccable. The wait staff is excellent, always readily available and knowledgable, but never hovering or imposing. The food is absolutely outstanding. They do what they do in an outstanding manner. This is the best Italian dining experience in the Metroplex.

This visit to Piccolo Mondo was, as usual, pleasant and entertaining. It was our 50th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent, the wait staff was courteous and attentive and the ambience was pleasant. We have enjoyed this restaurant for a number of years and plan many return visits.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was blown away. The service was perfect. We wanted to have our cocktail a while before we ordered and our server was great, checking back with us periodically to see when we wanted to order. The dish I wanted to order was only listed as a veal dish but I was able to order it in chicken. They were very willing to alter any dish to your specification. The only thing we ordered that I was disappointed with was the garlic toast. It tasted good but was brought to us in small tiny pieces. We had martinis to start with and they were very good. We had tickets to a show at the theatre in Grand Prairie so we had to travel from the east side of Dallas to Arlington on Friday afternoon (Rangers were playing that night) It took us 1 1/2 hours to get to the Piccolo, but after having dined there I'm glad we did. We enjoyed our dinner there alot. If ever back in Arlington at dinner, I will definately go here again.
