Located in the heart of historic Georgetown, 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. Piccolo has a history of being the perfect spot for warm ambiance and delicious hand-rolled pastas, seafood, grilled meats, pizzas and fresh desserts.

Piccolo will happily surprise you with its excellent food, service, wines 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 won TASTE OF GEORGETOWN's Best Dish, 3 times and People's Choice Award!, Diner's Choice award & Tastemaker Award from OpenTable and Award of Excellence from TripAdvisor for several years running.
