Very punctual took us exactly at our scheduled time . The waiters were excellent. The food and drinks were fabulous. I have never been displeased with any meal I have consumed here. Love it-a hidden gem.
Food delicious and great service. Had quiet table. Very vivid safe!
I was very impressed by this place. The menu offered unusual dishes, and they were prepared exquisitely. The staff was extremely attentive. I have to say that in these times when restaurants are short staffed and food is not always prepared well, this was a pleasant surprise. I will definitely come back again!
Food is Excellent! Service is Excellent! Mike and Jeff at the bar are excellent! Everytime my wife and I go it gets better and better!
Great hole-in-the-wall Italian spot. Great place for a date night. Will be back!
Had a wonderful experience. Food was amazing, great service and ambiance….
Thumbs up for Piccola Italia
Over the past 20 years, haven eaten there numerous times. I have always had impeccable service and the most delicious food. Everyone I’ve brought there agrees. It’s just a joy to dine there.
We were a party of 6 which go out to dinner on a normal basis, trying new places. I booked Piccola Italia and we were all blown away. The food was exceptional and the service was tops. Highly recommended.

Amazing service! The food was not only delicious…but the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The reviews said it all before we went. Great experience and highly recommended
Loved the restaurant. The food was excellent
Always great service and great food.
ALWAYS great! In every way!
Service was attentive but not overly so. Food, as always, was wonderful.
The food was great especially the soft shell crab.
Amazing as always! Mike and Jeff are the best team around! Food was perfect!
Never disappoints, it’s always a pleasure to go there.
I love this place but sitting at a table in the bar area is NOT a good choice. Everything feels super crowded and noisy. I felt very claustrophobic at my table which had a high wall right next to the table. It was super uncomfortable. Staff and food were good. Ambiance and comfortability lacked greatly.
Musty smell as soon as you enter.
Salad was small and taste was not good. Food is no where near cost. Given one dinner roll each . Service was the only thing that was good.
Excellent as always!
We eat here often. The food is excellent as is the service.
I feel like this place is a hidden gem. There is a calm, elegant vibe. The service is gracious without being g suffocating and the courses arrive in a cadence that allows you to enjoy your conversation. It’s pricey, but delicious. You can tell they pay attention to the ingredients and the unique details of each dish. We bookended our meal with a cheese plate for our appetizer which was outstanding and a chocolate truffle dessert that was decadent. There is a small dining area outside that they have given done charm to with a tent and white lights (it’s in the parking lot). The dining room is small and cozy and there is a beautiful bar for those who wish a different vibe as they eat.
Food is fantastic. Best cosmo I’ve ever had.
Hats off to chef Brian for some of the best house made pasta dishes in recent memory. Mine with Veal Ragout and my wife’s all'amatriciana. Both superb. Can’t wait to go back and explore the menu a little further.
Sausage encrusted pork loin was outstanding!! Juicy and delicious. Fluke was extremely fresh. Only complaint was the zucchini flowers came to the table rather cold; they weren’t hot.
Mark is a GREAT waiter, very knowledgeable and attentive but on this night perhaps overworked or there was an issue in the kitchen as it took longer than usual to get our entrees. Be sure though that this will not deter us from returning.
Food was very good although pricey. Server was helpful but stretched thin. Given price point I would have expected more help.
As always, fabulous food and great service. Do not miss this gem
Table was in a back corner alcove, staring at a wall.
Food was only okay. I hade rigatoni shrimp. There were only 2 shrimp. Coffee was good. Gelato was good.
Service was attentive and excellent.
Prices were very fair.
I think if I had a better table and selected a different entree my experience would’ve been better.
First time dining at Piccolo and it did not disappoint. Nice outdoor front area to sit in, weather permitting.
The three of us enjoyed our meals. Congratulations to the Chef.
Never disappoints…our go to place for yummy food in a casual setting
First time here, went based on Open Table and Yelp rave reviews. Food is delicious and very fresh. We had 2 nice salads and a tasty fried oysters app. Main courses were Red Snapper and sliced Waygu NY strip, both excellent. I really like the choice of vegetables and starches that come with the entrees. Dessert: they make a great italian cheesecake and chocolate tart, and we loved them.
Service was excellent, with Mare as our server. This is a relaxed restaurant, expensive but well worth it. Looking forward to going back.
Our server Christian was terrific. Food amazing. Loved our meal here!
The wine and drink list is very extensive. The food and service is excellent. They make and serve the food with family owned heart and that makes all of the difference! An overall great experience!
Pleasant place and excellent food and service.
Always great!!!! Food and Staff !!
Very impressed with the drinks, the appetizers and the entrees
From the moment we were seated the service and food was amazing! I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking to have a delicious meal.
Third time here in 2 months, does not disappoint. I had the chicken parm - not something i remember being on the menu in the past - kind of a traditional dish perhaps and this place tends to do things a bit differently. It was fantastic - all in the sauce which is very good. Burrata ravioli is very tasty as well. Service is always good and the bar is a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink.
Our waiter was the bomb.
Drinks were mixed really well
Our food was delicious and we are critical when it comes to Italian Food.
We cant wait to come back
