Relaxing atmosphere with outdoor dining when weather permits. Everything I've had is delicious, but do try the white pizza because is is the best I've tasted in the DMV. The chicken Piccata, Lasagna , and pasta are all great. Downstairs meeting room available for groups or meetings. Live music is a frequent treat.

Everything was great. Especially the artichoke dish, which was just amazing! A little slow though...

We were a party of 7 and we had 2 eggplant parmesan, fettucini alfredo with shrimp, gnocci with alfredo sauce, tortellini, fillet of flounder & vegetable lasagne. All dishes were delicious. They have very good bread and there was olive oil with garlic on the table. The service was very fast and the waiter was extremely personable.

We stopped by on a Friday night for a meal after a long week. Had no expectations other than to give it a try. Friendly, competent service. Seemed to have a lot of regulars and pretty active carry out traffic which are good signs. Had a nice appetizer of roasted peppers and anchovies followed by sausage and peppers and veal... More

I've been coming here for 25 years and always enjoy my meal. Its not gourmet, but it is tasty Italian in downtown Silver Spring. For the family can often get away for $50 or 60 which seems very reasonable in this day and age - and that's with wine. Less if you stuck to water or soft drinks. I like... More

Overall I would say our experience was okay and the food was decent for the price. We ordered ravioli, chicken Parmesan and a pizza and there was nothing wrong with the food, but nothing about the meal was above average either.

Friends at our local pub kept asking "Have you been to Vicino's yet?" So, finally, I took my wife to Vicino's last Friday night (our Friday night date). After finishing my meal (and the portions are fair size), all I could think about was all the great home cooked Italian food I ate at my friends' houses as a boy;... More

At about 1pm on a weekday, I dropped in to Vicino's for lunch. The place was empty at first. After a minute or two without being able to find anyone, I left. But then as I was pulling away into traffic, I saw a waiter come to the window. When I returned, I had the place totally to myself. An... More

This is a quaint Italian restaurant, and I had a nice waiter. However, the waiter was not on the ball. I had to ask for bread and I didn't find a shaker of grated cheese on my table. The waiter didn't offer any grated cheese either. I expected the waiter to stop by my table and ask if I needed... More

It's not a beautiful restaurant, but we think they have some of the best, reasonably priced Italian food. Their eggplant parmigana is wonderful and every time my husband gets a veal chop that is out of this world.
