Nice table cloth setting with excellent service. However, there are too many really good Italian restaurants in the DFW area that are much less expensive.

This is not a bad Italian restaurant, but it is not a great one either. By any standard their food is okay, but only that - NOT great as it is locally reputed to be. Perhaps it was once, but not so in the few times we visited it. And we have not gone back again since then.

We had the most delicious lunch at Piccolo Mondo yesterday, September 12th. It was a lunch to celebrate birthdays for two very special friends and we could not have picked a nicer place! The service was above excellence and the food was mouth watering delicious! The restaurant has been around for quite a few years and I was hoping it... More

If you want a restaurant that is above average regarding quality of food, appearance and value, do visit Piccolo Mondo! You will be treated like royalty, and your mouth will be absolutely delighted! I have been there many times over the years and was highly pleased each time!

We went at the spur of the moment on a sunday and had a great meal! It is in a strip mall so never thought much about it but it was very good! My husband has dairy allergies and they were very accommodating and made sure everything was free of all dairy products. Quiet and romantic atmosphere. We were dressed... More

My friends and I were impressed with the restaurant. We were very fortunate that we were seated before the rush came in. All the servers were very respectful and I never had an empty cup of water (because I like to drink a lot of water). Although the prices were a little bit higher than I would normally pay for...

We used to go here numerous times with a neighbor who's now passed away. It's a very old school restaurant, and I will say this in its favor, it's one of the quietest restaurants you'll find. We used to go to Portofino's, which was very nice and similar, but Portofino's had better food and better value. The Italian dishes are... More

This is an excellent, classy but not exorbitantly priced venue. Have been numerous times, always good. Last night went there for anniversary dinner. Food was marvelous. Service was superb. It can be a little busy, a tad too much noise because it lacks intimate booths, but for an excellent dinner, great food and service, go for it. Five stars.

I've been going here at least monthly for almost 30 years. Always wonderful. Service, food, wine, everything is excellent. I've even done several holiday parties there.
