  • "We dined at Piccolo Trattoria with nine other people about two weeks ago. Everyone was very happy with their food, and the service was marvelous..very attentive and catering to our needs. Based on that experience, we made reservations to dine there again Friday night,June 20th, this time with other friends not familiar with the neighborhood or the restaurant. This time, again, all four of us were very happy with our meal as well as the service. We will definitely dine there again."

  • "We've eaten here, before. It's reasonable, but VERY noisy. My dinner only had 4 shrimp, and no sauce on the pasta. We had to ask for more water, and the waiter complained about how busy he is with 6 tables, and already walked several miles in the restaurant that day. He spoke very, very fast, and said he did, because it was busy. Geez!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This is one of our favorite places to dine. The food and service is consistantly good. We have recently been eating there on a regular basis. Additionally the prices are very reasonable."

  • "I absolutely love Piccolo. The food always comes out piping hot and is consistently delicious. Try the chicken Dolce Vita! It's is so good!!! Get it with the angel hair pasta. You will not be disappointed. The chicken florentine is also delicious and rich. And whatever you do, DO NOT leave without getting a cannoli. I won't eat cannolis anywhere else but here bc they are filled to order! The shell stays crispy and delicious while it holds the rich and creamy filling. "

    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We went as a large group of 8 for a combined Mother's Day/college graduation celebration. While the appetizers were good, about half of the entrees were disappointing, incluidng tough veal marsala and spaghetti carbonara that was unrecognizable as carbonara. It had a brown sauce with no trace of eggs, and included peas which weren't listed on the menu. We didn't realize it was a BYOB restaurant. Our waiter said he'd find out if there was a state store nearby, and then never reported back about that. He alternated between fawning, talking too long about his personal favorites on the menu, and then disappearing for long stretches."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "I took my fiancée to dinner for mother's day an pick piccolo at last minute. We had to wait to be seated as well as we had a little wait to get our food, but the food was good. This is a BYOB which we didn't know."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "As always, my boyfriend & I enjoyed our dining experience. Wonderful food and great service. The live music is nice too. Restaurant is well run and it shows! Looking forward to our next visit."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Expected more- poor food - bland dishes- overpriced. Felt like we could have prepared same seafood dishes at home with much better flavoring and freshness. Wine selection was well done. Setting is very nice but the noise level is uptempo and compounded by a live entertainer."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Excellent food., salad, appetizer, main dish for all 3, and desert. All very good. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "most of us ordered halibut which was very good however there were t-bone like bones in mine. i didn't want to cause a fuss with large group but am sure the people that cleared the table noticed it on seperate plate. i have never had this happen before with halibut so maybe that is the difference in steak and filet of halibut"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I think they took too many reservations as we had them for 7 and did not get seated until 7:50..the entrance was packed-you could not move in the entryway. terribly disorganized food was great..."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Need reservations on weekends for sure. A very classic italian flavor a extremely large number of choices including over 12 classic veal or chicken dishes"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Our reservation was for 7:00, table for 4. We checked in at 7 and were told by the hostess "it would be a couple of minutes". 25 minutes later I inquired as to when we would be seated, that more than a couple of minutes had passed, and was told "we're doing the best we can". At 7:35 I asked the hostess when we will be seated and why are they taking reservations if they have no intention of honoring them. She looked right at me and then walked away. We promptly left, went to another restaurant in another part of the center (Asian fusion) and were treated with both respect and care, and had a wonderful dinner. The fact that I am able to write this review shows their disorganization. They didn't even notice we left!"

  • "We have a dinner almost every week. Great menu for kids and adults. Has even gluten free pizza, pasta and desert. The best chicken parmasian I ever had. Nice music on Saturdays."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Although we've eaten at Piccolo Newtown and Piccolo Langhorne before with no problems. This recent visit was not the best experience. 3 out of 4 adults ordered entrees with soup/salad. 2 received their soup/salad but one did not. Once it was brought to the attention of our waiter, the soup was brought out; however, the entrée followed right behind the soup. They packed up the soup "to-go". The same customer whose soup was late also ordered an entrée with a specific pasta. When it arrived, we thought that just the pasta was wrong; however, we looked at the menu and found that the wrong entrée was brought for him. He was not fond of the dish. The restaurant was not too busy, but there seemed to be some confusion."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We have been at the Piccolo Trattoria in Langhorne and in Newtown and it never ceases to impress. The chicken and salmon Caesar salads are great. Try their spaghetti bolonaise. Excellent sauce! It is a BYO which we love!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We were seated right away, when there was a wait for walk in service. We were greeted by the Chef himself. The specials were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for fine Italian dining. I've been here about 10 times and never had a bad experience or a bad meal."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Consistently very good food. Great desserts-the cannoli is terrific and the lava cake always satisfies my chocolate craving. Portions are fairly large so we always have leftovers which is great."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went on a Saturday night and couldn't believe how chaotic it was. The staff seemed overwhelmed by the number of customers and barely could keep up. It appeared to me that the space was overpacked with tables. There was hardly enough space for staff to get by. I guess the owner is trying to maximize his/her profit by packing it in. As a result the quality of service suffers. The food itself was quite good and the prices very reasonable."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We have been dining here at least twice a month for the past year. The food has consistently been quite good. The menu is extensive but we have our favorites. I love the spring mix salad with grilled chicken. The House dressing is amazing! My girls love the vodka rigatoni, chicken parm and pasta Vienna. My husband will try the seafood specials and has always been pleased. We are dessert lovers and Piccolo always has a large selection that offers something for everyone. The Cannoli is always a favorite along with the chocolate lava cake and anything peanut butter!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Excellent service,food,and entertainment.What more could you ask for.The owner pays attention to all of his guests and makes sure everything is running smoothly. He truly cares about his guests."

  • "Dinner's came out, hadn't gotten soup or salad yet. They took the meals back and out them under a heating lamp, hard pasta and chewy salmon."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive. Went there on a recommendation and will definitely go back. I liked the fact that there was not a limited menu even though it was New Year's Eve."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Went on New Years Eve. Had a 6:30 reservation - arrived on time but not seated until 7:20. Then another 20 minutes until a waiter came by. Only had salad before the main course, and didn't get main course until after 8:00. Waiter very helpful when present, but didn't see him very often. Food was very good (as it always is) - fresh salads and pasta dishes prepared just right. Really enjoy the restaurant but either overbooked or didn't have enough help for New Years Eve. Had very nice live music playing in background (not too loud or soft) which was nice for a holiday. Other thing - I guess to be expected, menu items not all that different than usual, but prices a bit higher because it was New Years Eve. Great place - just not for holidays."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The food was excellent and service was very attentive. Only downfall - tables were arranged to maximize seating. Our table was located in the middle section of the restaurant and our group hugged the table for the entire meal. There was no room for anyone in the restaurant to pass between these tables."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Good suburbia restaurant with a menu that covers all bases of the usual Italian menu. There is something for everyone."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Very good food and reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend.Service was good although it took almost 15 mins from our reserved time to get a table."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The introductory bread put at the table was delicious - I already knew we were going to be ok. The entree selections were endless, almost difficult to choose, but we finally had to. I ordered a chicken and mushroom ravioli special - delicious. My husband eats gluten-free, so they made him a GF pasta and grilled chicken parmigiana, which he loved. The desserts were outstanding as well - they even had one for my GF husband. The cappuccino I finished the dinner with was outstanding. Also, the service was great, attentive but not intrusive, and she got everything right the first time. We were very, very happy, and will definitely go back for another great experience, I'm sure."

  • "If there is one thing I can say is, Piccolo never disappoints. The food is consistently served hot & delicious !! The entrees you come to love will always taste the same and they will be amazing!! I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Can't believe we've lived in the area for more than two years and haven't dined here before now. Just assumed it was another pizza/pasta place. Big mistake! Reservation time was honored, service was friendly and fast, but not rushed. Food was delicious. My only complaint was menu was so big it was hard to decide!"
