A "must do" for a special occasion!
This was a last minute decision on a Sunday night and we were accommodated immediately. We walked in to a piano player in the bar playing the most wonderful music, suitable as a very nice backdrop to our dining experience. Our waiter was very professional and knowledgable about the menu - the food specials exquisite. I hadn't been here in a while and am so glad I tried it again!

Food was excellent!
This was our first visit to Piccolo and all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Great wine list. Caesar salad was delicious as was the bread. I had seafood fra diavolo, my husband had scallops and our two friends both had one of the specials - pasta with beef tips. Everything was outstanding! We all agreed that we'll be back again soon.

Very good food, reasonably price
This was my 2nd time at Piccolo, I enjoyed the food both times and the food was very reasonably priced. I have been to many italian places on Long Island and the Food at Piccolo was better than most and less expensive. The dishes which they had both in Appetizer and Entree size were all very very good. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals and all the other dishes at the table and we are planning on returning soon. Make sure to make a reservation early because this place is so good that the prime time dinner reservation slot book up early.

Piccolo is somewhat of an icon. It has been in the same location for many years, with a small but always busy bar, excellent service, romantic ambiance, and consistently terrific food. It's not cheap, but a restaurant of this quality shouldn't be. The very extensive wine list has a few reasonably priced wines, the menu choices are always interesting, and the meal as a whole is always satisfying.From Sunday through Thursday there's a piano player (Don Sands). It's a good experience, and I highly recommend it.

My wife and I were looking for a new Italian restaurant and a friend recommended Piccolo. It turned out to be a great recommendation as the food and service were top notch. While there are no shortages of Italian restaurants on LI, this may be one of the best. We will certainly be back in hopes of consistent fine food and service. If you are in or around Huntington, don't miss it.

Never Get's Tired or Predictable...
You'll never see a bad review from me about Piccolo... I've been dining there for 23 years... I'm going there again tonight! LOL
It's never a disappointment - just the other night I had a pasta special "Fiore and broccoli rabe with chicken breast in garlic and oil" OUTSTANDING!!!
If you've never been ~ treat yourself... If you've been there, you probably know what I'm talking about!
5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
What can I say? I'd eat there every night if that were possible....

Piccolo's is one of the best restaurants in Huntington! Both the food and service are consistently 5 star. I've been here numerous times, and have never once been disappointed. We had a poached pear salad from the regular menu, and scallops with risotto (which had a brussel sprout slaw mixed in, which sounds weird, but was DELICIOUS!) and salmon with horseradish sauce and a zucchini pancake underneath it from the 'specials' menu. It was fantastic! Shared a malted milkball gelato dessert and coffee to top it off. Every bite was heavenly, and we'll be back for more!

Excellent presentation from appetizers to desserts! Great service and perfect dinner!
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place is very small, which makes it feel exclusive. I can honestly say, hands down, best Italian food I've had on Long Island. All of the pasta is made fresh, by hand, and you can absolutely taste the quality. Highly recommended.

Flawless ~ from beginning to end... Thanks Piccolo, you never fail to satisfy and impress!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Huntington numerous times. We made last minute plans to go to town for dinner and found a hard time getting a reservation. Piccolo was very accommodating and we were able to get a reservation at a reasonable hour. Although its not on the Main Street, piccolo was excellent !! Menu was a little pricey, but the quality of food and service was well worth it. Anything I could complain about would be the wine prices. $12 for a half full glass of wine seems a bit pricey but then again, the atmosphere made it well worth every penny! Will definitely go back and recommend this place to others!

This restaurant is twenty years old and has kept up its quality, service and romantic ambience. We just were there and had one of their seasonal specialties, soft shell crab--always delicious, and they will alter the preparation to suit your taste. Dean is the gracious owner/executive chef, and some of the waiters have been there forever. It's always a wonderful dining experience.

First time at Piccolos, but
First time at Piccolos, but we will return for sure. My husband and I were made to feel welcome from start to finish. We had the clams oreganata and the goat cheese stuffed figs with prosciutto for appetizers. The combination of saltiness and sweetness of the figs was a hit in the mouth. The clams were whole and meaty. The topping just the right balance of bread crumbs and flavorings. For entrees my husband had the pounded pork chop with grilled radicchio. He enjoyed every bite. I had the grilled scallops over risotto. Five big sea scallops what were perfectly grilled and seasoned. The risotto was al dente mixed with fresh corn. I too enjoyed every bite. Unfortunately no room for dessert. So wanted to try the pistachio tartufo. Next time.

Top Resturant. On Long Island
Great food , great selection and service top of Italian Resturants .
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
a very pleasant evening
Took my family there. We have returned here several times. The food is always excellent (well prepared, nicely presented), with a good selection to choose from. The waiting staff was very attentive and patient with an inability to choose from the many offerings. The food was reasonably priced (I've paid a lot more for food that wasn't as good at other places). We dined on a Friday and the only criticism was that as the night progressed and the restaurant filled, the service became a bit slow.

Piccolo is out "go to" place for special occasions - birthdays, etc...
They never fail to elevate an occasion from just eating to "dining and celebrating".

Was looking for a restaurant
Was looking for a restaurant in the Woodbury/Huntington area for a special dinner. Huntington in particular has lots of restaurants that are good, but not great. This place is a gem-delicious food, great variety of menu choices and excellent service. Try the duck a l'orange and the salmon encrusted in crabmeat (my son was trying to decide between salmon and the crab cake and I do believe he got the best of both!) Plus the north of downtown location made parking not an issue mid-week.

Piccolo never fails to impress... Great atmosphere ~ superb food ~ magnificent staff... What more could you ask for?
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM

Reliably good food
Food always good, had special of sea scallops with corn risotto . Very good but a little salty. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. Very good wait staff . Restaurant is small but that gives it charm.

We love this place. Possibly
We love this place. Possibly the best waiter of any restaurant. I took my wife, kids and elderly mother for dinner. He catered to all of them and most importantly my mother. The food is always delicious and there is no point in just mentioning one dish. We love this place and go often. It is great for special occasions.

Best Restaurant in Huntington
Food and service are always excellent! Thanks for another outstanding dining experience!

Our wonderful dinner!
Piccolo never disappoints! We took our very special friends who we're visiting from California and we had a wonder evening. The service and food we're excellent and we were not rushed so we had a lot of catch up time with our friends! We always enjoy di I g at Piccolo and our friends loved it too!:)

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.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were top notch. Look forward to returning .
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always delivers !!!
Just a great restaurant with amazing food, wonderful service and simply one of the best restaurants on Long Island. If you have never gone.....GO and enjoy !!! If you gone it just might be time to pay a revisit.
