Simply the best Italian. It is the most authentic in Boca, and absolutely delicious. Get the eggplant, it's the best I've had--and I spend 4 months living in Italy! The owners are also the best, you feel like you're eating dinner at your cousin's house! Great experience.

The outside and location looks
The outside and location looks like it will be an average everyday Italian spot. That all changed once you pass through the door. This family operated restaurant is the most welcoming and friendly spot I've been to in a long time.
The chef greets you and helps you to your seats. He's the one that explains the specials and answers any questions that you have on the menu. His appetizer suggestion was the eggplant parmigiana. My girlfriend eats eggplant parmigiana at every Italian restaurant we go to and this is by far the best either of us have ever had. We could go back and have this as our appetizer, dinner, and even more to take home for later. The rest of the food was just as amazing (would write more, but ran out of space)

This is one terrific restaurant. the menu is short, but there are specials. The owner/chef recommended the sole Francaise and four of us ordered not. it was luscious! The eggplant parm appetizer, which three of us shared two of, was equally great. Chef was wonderful and friendly as was the wait person (his wife?).
It was a truly delightful evening.

Selfishly, I really do not want to tell many people about this place because they tell their friends and they tell their friends and then we cannot get in.
This is a gem os a small restaurant which is owned by roberto who is also the chef. The menu is somewhat limited but EVERYTHING on the menu is luscious.
Roberto and his lovely wife are gracious and caring hosts. I am limiting my comments - out of selfishness - but it is a happy and wonderful place.

This can be our new "go to" neighborhood Italian. Our old one (down the street) suffered from lack of menu innovation and not paying attention to year-round locals. Piccolino - don't do this. Food was well prepared - not fireworks but good hearty fare. Sometimes you just want a good veal parm!

Real Italian Food!
I LOVE this little family owned restaurant! We ordered spaghetti bolognese and the chicken milanese. The bolognese sauce was a little on the sweeter side, I actually prefer this so I loved the taste of it. The pasta was perfectly cooked. The chicken milanese was the best I have had ever and I eat a lot of Italian food. All the deserts are homemade and are incredible. The restaurant is small- we sat towards the back of the restaurant it was a bit warmer but we were still comfortable. We were treated to fried olives as an appetizer- DELICIOUS! I don't mind service being slower at a restaurant like this- I enjoyed not being rushed and it was worth any wait for this quality of food. The owner was so warm and welcoming! This place is a gem.

Great food/fabulous owners
We were looking for great Italian food in Boca with a comfortable atmosphere. Based on YELP reviews, we selected Piccolino -- and fully agree with those who rated this as outstanding. The food was great; the owners are the chef and waitress who continuously checked on us, offered suggestions for dinner, gave us a complimentary appetizer and after-dinner cordial, and just simply were delightful. Two couples (a party of four) who were seated near us told us that they had been coming for over 10 years and viewed the restaurant owners as "family" given how solicitous they are to all their guests. If you want great food at a great price in a place where you feel genuinely welcomed -- this is the place.

Piccolino Never Disappoints
This chef/owner operated store front in downtown Boca Raton
Has a focused menu that is very consistent. Good al dente pastas, fresh
Delectable seafood and good quality veal all served with a flair.
Hot from the five steps away kitchen. No special occasion necessary.

Great Italian restaurant !!!
This was my first time there and it was delicious! We went to celebrate my boyfriend's' new job. We started with the eggplant parm appetizer, which was amazing! For dinner I had the veal parm which was amazing as well. My boyfriend had the tortellini Alfredo which he said was good.The service was great and very welcoming! My only negative is the fried olive that they gave to us to start the meal, I wasn't a fan of that. We can wait to return and try some other entrees!

Wonderful Italian Food
Can't say enough great things about this place. Chef/Owner is exceptional. Friendly, welcoming and a great cook. I looked at the menu and saw a few chicken dishes. I didn't see chicken parm so I asked him if that was on the menu. His response was that he would make it for me. He then presented perhaps the best and largest chicken parm I have ever eaten. Pasta on the side was declicious. Wife had the eggplant which she loved. This is the kind of neighborhood place where the Chef and the owner are one in the same and treats all of his guests special. If you are in or near Boca Raton and want exceptional Italian food served up with a smile, this is a MUST try. Enjoy!!!
