A word from Piccolo Restaurant of Huntington
2009 Long Island Zagat Survey Rates Piccolo with 26 in "Food," 21 in "Decor," and 24 in "Service".

Customers crave the "stellar" dishes on the "inventive" New American-Italian menu accompanied by a "surprising wine list" at this "warm, inviting" Huntington "favorite" with a "fantastic" staff that makes "you feel like you're being served by friends"; a piano player (Sunday-Thursday) "adds a nice touch" to the "expensive" meal, which is so "transporting", "reservations are a must."

Also received the "Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator in 2008.

Diner Reviews
  • "Even with a reservation at 9pm, still waited a half hour to be seated. Needed to suggest to the hostess that perhaps she should buy a round of drinks for the inconvenience...She became defensive and said she had no control of when people leave the dining area-hence the comp drink!"

  • "We had never been to Piccolo but based on reviews we decided to go there on Valentine's Day. We were not disappointed. They had hearts hanging up with dim, romantic lighting. The staff was very friendly and attentive. When my husband had to leave for a few minutes the waiter came over to talk with me. The food was cooked to perfection and the wine list was excellent , covering a wide range and variety. The salmon with cous cous was delicious and my husbands short rib dish was cooked to perfection. As we left I was handed a long stemmed rose. We definitely plan to return."

  • "Piccolo's is exceptional in every way. The moment you walk in the door, you are greeted in a way that makes all feel like a "regular". The staff are courteous, professional and very comfortable in providing you with the best service possible. The waiters are very attentive but not intrusive. Piccolo's atmosphere is unique in the sense that you can have a very romantic dinner for two or feel comfortable dining with a small group of family or friends. The menu is well rounded and ranges from chicken parmigiana to caviar. I have been dining at Piccolo's for ten years and have never been dissapointed. Piccolo's formula for success is an example of what it takes to provide consistency, professionalism and excellence in the fine dining world."

  • "We have been living in Huntington for over 10 years and have never been to Piccalo. It was my husbands bday and we decided to give it a try. When we sat we were never given menus. The table next to us who were seated after us got menus and was given a rundown on the specials etc.. Finally when the bus boy was filling our water we had asked his for menus. The waiter then came over and just said. You have any questions. No rundown on specials. Nothing. I asked and then he walked away and then he seemed to be yelling at the bus boy. My husband also had lipstick on the glass. Gross! And then they never brought him a new one! until we asked. Overall not a good experience.. It seemed like your have to be a regular there to be treated well."

I had Scallops over truffle risotto. Excellent dish. The wine list was great. Desert was to die for. I had a chocolate molten cake with ice cream. Overall, this restaurant was a great dinning experience. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves upscale Italian Food."

  • "Inviting atmosphere and very good food. Escargot appetizer was perfect and loaded with flavors. Menu is not too extensive so making choices is simple if you can narrow down all the great options. Boneless Beef Short Ribs were very good but not as exciting as I hoped. Sesame crusted Yellow fin Tuna was excellent. Pistachio Tartufo made a perfect dessert with cappuccino."

  • "Dined at Piccolo to celebrate our anniversary. We have dined here a couple of times in the past and have enjoyed our meals each time. We were not disappointed...the calamari appetizer was excellent with a surprisingly large portion. The green salad was fresh and delicious. We shared the seared scallops and the seafood fra diavlo - excellent, excellent, excellent with a large enough portion to be enjoyed the following day for lunch. Service is attentive without being overbearing. The piano player set the mood and was a nice added treat to our meal. Piccolo is a neighborhood gem and one of the top choices in a town that features several very good restaurants."

  • "This was our second visit and we brought friends from out of town on a Friday night around 7pm. We had the calamari appetizer; ahi tuna, short ribs, salmon and pasta for entrees and gelato for dessert. Everything was delicious, including the bread. The waitstaff was very attentive even though the restaurant was crowded that night. Our only complaint was the noise level."

  • "In an area of a gazillion Italian restaurants, Piccolo is a standout. The traditional Italian items on the menu are all executed perfectly. The specials menu includes some more current preparations, which are not necessarily Italian, such as tuna tacos, thai calamari and kale/cauliflower salad. One standout appetizer was the goat cheese stuffed figs with prosciutto and melon."

  • "I've been here multiple times. Staff is always very pleasant. This past time we were seated at a nice table. After we ordered our appetizer ( which was excellent), our waiter kind of disappeared. When he came back, we asked for a wine recommendation which turned out to be not that enjoyable. Another young lady helped out and she was very nice. Overall, the food was great, expect better service at these prices and likely won't go back for a while."
