Does anyone know the name of a good on-line music dictionary?

I can't remember the meaning of "pochettino." I think it is a slight ritardando or something like that....?

I think it just means "a little bit".

This is from the online dictionary I use. http://www.dolmetsch.com/musictheorydefs.htm

pochettino (Italian) very little indeed
pochetto (Italian) very little

And there's also 'pochetissimo' or is it 'pochissimo' which I think translates as 'the tiniest of little bits'.
