  • An off Night for Il Picolo Verde

    Dined on 9/23/2014
    This was my 5th time at this restaurant and by far the worse experience I have had. The service was so slow, the food was terrible and the waitress seemed like she was spacy and having an off night. It took 20 min for us to be noticed and I had to call from the outside patio to ask for menus. It took another 10 min for drinks to be served. I ordered a salad I normally order but I guess the chef did something different and it came out tasting bland and not at all what I ordered. I basically got a bunch of shredded lettuce and a few small veggies sprinkled on it. They did bring a plate of added raw veggies when I asked but still. Also, their beers are EXTREMELY expensive.

    This was our first time at this restaurant, but definitely not our last. The choices for a glass of wine or a beer were extensive and reasonably priced. The bread was pieces of pizza crust just out of the oven (light and very good) and the tapanade was excellent. We each started with an okay salad and then split a 12" pizza cooked the Naples way. This means that they had a pizza oven that was especially designed for them in Naples, one that was capable of cooking at 800 degrees and making the pizza in one minute. (They also have New York style pizzas made in a regular pizza oven.) Ours was perfect, with what may be the best crust we have ever had. We need to go back and try other pizzas and their extensive pasta list.

    This restaurant is an amazing hidden gem, quiet, gorgeous, and delicious plus what a refreshing experience with suburb service! We came here for dinner on a Friday night and ordered a salad, appetizer, and chicken diavola. Everything was delicious plus large portions. The service was incredible as everyone was very friendly and attentive. Nice patio space too! Will definitely be back

    We went here for lunch on a sunday afternoon, there was only 1 other party in the entire restaurant, so noise was not an issue. Food was good. We got their lunch special - salad and a sandwich. They left us alone for the most part, needed to flag them down for water that went completely empty and a persistent fly that kept zooming near our food.

    There were 3 in our party. I was disappointed that the waiter did not suggest any "SPECIALS" for that evening, my dinner was just ok. took half of it home and tried to "doctor it up" but it still was tasteless for me. the salad was just ok. The others in my party seemed disappointed, also. I am not sure if we will go back.

    I have been here a few times since it opened in my neighborhood. The food is always consistently outstanding. Some of the best pasta I have ever had is here. Our server was attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone--in or out of the area.

    This cute little restaurant serves beautiful food. I recommend the Carrot Cauliflower Soup! The salads that we ordered were beautiful but bland…try something else. Along with the favorites you would expect in an Italian restaurant they also have a "green" menu - good for vegetarians.

    Aside from being a very quaint place off secluded, private Brentwood Place, the food and service are fantastic. And there is a "green" section with creative salads made from ingredients like quinoa, wheatbuck, ferro, etc, that are fabulous. Will definitely be back for "take outs" as well.

    We have lived near this little place for a year and just decided to try it with a coupon. We were amazed at the quality and freshness of the food and the very reasonable prices. My wife had the cioppino (seafood in red sauce) and I had the trout in a sage butter sauce. We were both very impressed - best Italian red sauce in a restaurant we have ever had. Portions were generous, staff was friendly, and they even treated us to complimentary dessert. We will surely be going back!

    We had never been here although had eaten many times at the old estashlishment. The four of us we very pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, delicious food and very friendly attentive service. We sat outside on a lovely heated patio and enjoyed a great bottle of wine on a chilly evening. Everything from the salads, pastas, chicken piccata , white fish was execellent. We will definitely return soon!

    Cute, charming restaurant tucked away at the bottom of the S. Barrington block in Brentwood Village. Went there for lunch. I had the salmon which was absolutely moist the way I like it with a nice light sauce, included brocolini & roasted potatoes. My friend had the vegetarian pizza that she said was fresh and delicious. 2 hours free validated parking in a nearby lot within walking distance.

    This restaurant is relatively new to the neighborhood of Brentwood. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is outstanding. Everything we ordered was delicious and freshly made. The room is small and comfy and tables are placed near each other, but that is not a distraction. I highly recommend this restaurant for some great Italian food.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I've dined here 4 or 5 times, and twice I've brought my own wine and don't remember a corkage fee. On Valentine's Day, there was free Tiramisu. With a $50 bottle of wine (decent), the bill before tip was $100. The food and ambiance has always been good. The prices are reasonable, especially given he quality of the food and the Brentwood village location. I've enjoyed the pasta and well as salads. So far, because it is relatively new and unknown, tables are easy to get, even on Valentine's Day. The ambiance is enjoyable, including for intimate and/or romantic. There is a small patio just off the sidewalk with heaters and, when needed, clear plastic roll-down windows if it gets chilly.

    The restaurant was empty during my entire dine there with 3 other people on a Thursday evening. The wait staff was wonderful and the chef and owner came out to greet us. They have a green/natural section of their menu which had some nice choices. We also ordered two pastas and although simple, they were very tasty. Burrata pizza was thin and crispy. Their house red wine was nice and the tiramisu was well made and fresh. It was great to have the place to ourselves, but I would hope that more people find this lovely restaurant - great ambiance, big space, easy parking outside and good food!
