Ristorante Piccolo opened its doors in 1986, and is an award-winning romantic Italian restaurant with a history of being the perfect spot for first dates and marriage proposals. Situated in a 300-year old historic building, Piccolo also offers one of the best seats in historic Georgetown--a second-floor balcony overlooking Georgetown and the historic C&O Canal. Featuring three fireplaces, two beautiful water features, detailed wrought ironwork, unique handcrafted wall coverings, and Murano glass light fixtures throughout, Ristorante Piccolo will charm you with its soft lighting, romantic music, delicious food and it's warm, attentive staff.
Under the watchful eye of Chef Arnaldo Rubio, who has been a part of Piccolo's family since its inception in 1986, Piccolo offers lively, updated versions of regional Italian classics, daily handmade pastas and exquisite main courses. Not to be missed is the two time award winning Taste of Georgetown hand rolled porcini stuffed agnolotti in a fresh sage and butter sauce, and its strolling violinist every Friday and Saturday evening!
Ristorante Piccolo is open for lunch from 11:30am to 2:30pm and dinner 4:30pm to 11pm Monday thru Friday, and 11am to 11pm Saturday & Sunday, with brunch offered on the weekends.
