You feel like the restaurant
You feel like the restaurant is located in the North End. Real authentic Italian food and ambiance. Four of us dined and we all enjoyed the food. The haddock special was terrific. The wait staff was very attentive and efficient. We will return!

First time at Piccolo's, was
First time at Piccolo's, was not very impressed when we first walked in, but sitting at the bar waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, we could smell the food and realized we're going to have a great meal, and we did, our waitress, I believe her name is Kristin was great and very accommodating. We'll be back for sure.

Great food, friendly staff,
Great food, friendly staff, super waitress. Enjoyed a special night out as three couples, seated in the round by the window with a view of historic Shrewsbury street. Skipped the desserts but they looked great as well, wouldn't mind returning some time for coffee and sweets!

A Birthday Dinner
We thought our dining experience was very nice. It was a bit "loud" but it's a smaller venue so it's to be expected with everyone talking. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The wait staff were very friendly and knew the items on the menu so when they were asked about a particular dish they were able to tell us all about it. It was our first visit and we would recommend it and we will be going back. :)

A great time!
Our group of 8 had a fabulous time! The food and wine were delicious, the waitress and bartender were both fantastic. It's rather loud so not a place for quiet conversation.

Piccolo's on Shrewsbury Street
The service was exceptionally smooth, and the waitress very pleasant and efficient even though the restaurant was jammed due to college graduations in the area.
The atmosphere is comfortable with a dark wood interior, and we saw parties of numerous sizes ranging from couples to parties of 8-10 on the night we were there.
The entrees are EXTREMELY generous portions, and all of our orders came out piping hot!
The menu offers a diverse selection of choices ranging from veal to seafood, along with creative specials.
The average entree price ranges from $18-$24.
Reservations are definitely recommended but it is worth the wait to if you have an opportunity to try Piccolos.

Piccolo birthday celebration
Friends of mine surprised me with dinner for my birthday. The food was fantastic the waitress was unbelievably friendly and attentive and although it was memorial day and the atmosphere was very quiet we preferred it that way.

Just the way you like it...
It's great to go to a resturant and be able to ask for a change and its no problem. I loved the idea of Salmon and Lobster. Problem for me...I just love your piccata sauce... I asked for it to be substituted over the cream sauce ( personal preference ) ...waitress said no problem. It was great. Thank you.

The food was exceptional!
The food was exceptional! Quaint restaurant on a vibrant street packed with restaurant options. The only downside was the large group seated next to us was very loud which made the small dining room nearly impossible to hold a conversation with our table of 4. No double the experience would have been 5 stars in all aspects if this group had chosen somewhere else to hold their raucous celebration. Be kind to other diners and don't take a large group to this quaint restaurant.

Enjoy it while you can
6 PM on a Saturday night and the place was empty, 1 other party in the dining room, and only 3-4 parties in the dining area & a few more in the bar area when we finished. What a shame, because this is really a terrific place with excellent food for the price. We started with cucumber vodka and cranberry cocktails, which were very refreshing. Appetizer grilled pizza was excellent, with perfect crust. Calamari was good, but not spectacular. All three entrees were excellent: steak tip risotto w/ brandy cream sauce special, gnocchi with sausage red sauce special, and shrimp Julianna w/ vodka cream sauce. Lemon blueberry cheesecake dessert was very good. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Can only hope their business picks up soon!

Great Italian Food!
We celebrated my wife's birthday with the entire family. The garlic bread with sautéd Gorgonzola dipping sauce was fabulous. Veal Marino was tender and tasty. The red wine pasta w/spicy sausage was great mix of flavors. All meal that were order by the family left everyone with a smile on their faces. Great place for a family gathering.
