The food and service is always excellent. It is by far the best fine dining restaurant in SCV! The food is as authentic as eating in a restaurant in Italy. The appetizers and pasta are amazing. I can't say enough, love the place.

Excellent service, very nice people. Our table for 2 was felt a little crowed next to a table too close. Food quality, taste, excellent. Rare Filet Mignon was a little chilly on the inside.

Typically, the service is good and the food is good. This time, the service was poor. We didn’t get the things we asked for or we didn’t get it timely. Our drinks were empty. I think they were having a bad day. This was not customary.

Party of 4, two had the fresh swordfish, excellent, moist and firm; angel hair pasta perfectly prepared, third person had osso buco, absolutely delicious, melt in your mouth; chicken scallopine cooked perfectly, moist and flavorful. Salads were crisp, fresh. Italian wine selection had nice finish, well balanced; service was extraordinary on such a busy night.

Being of Italian decent and having traveled to Italy many times, I feel that I can say with confidence that the food and overall ambiance is very authentic. The beautiful young Italian ladies that run the place are very hard workers and always pleasant, not to mention soft on the eyes. The older gentleman who bartends there is very knowledgeable and I would consider him a professional bartender. Most of the waiters, if not all, speak Italian. Carlo is my favorite waiter but, all of them are great. Super attentive and pleasant personalities. The dress code is casual but if you come dressed like a slob in some stupid printed t-shirt and jeans you'll definitely be out of place. You don't need a coat and tie but you would not be out of place if you were to wear one. Slacks and a nice shirt for the men. For the ladies, a comfortable dress or nice ladies slacks with a decent blouse. Some may consider the prices to be a bit on the higher end but if you take into account the quality and quantity of food, the value is great. Parking can be a pain unless you get there early so, I suggest you take advantage of the valet. Bon Appetit!

Tasting for an upcoming wedding rehearsal dinner that they will cater. Bride & Groom 1st time there and loved it! Chicken scaloppini was awesome as was the mushroom bowtie pasta. Service was great as well.

By far the number one restaurant in the Santa Clarita Valley and one of the top 10 restaurants in Southern California. The food is delicious and the staff are wonderful. Make sure to save room for desserts, it is some of the best you’ll ever have...

Amazing food. Lovely hidden Gem. Celebrated Valentine’s Day early and was very surprised and pleased with this place. Again, the food is amazing, best Italian food I have had. The service is just as great. This is the kind of place you want to take a date too and impress.

Veg on both plates was undercooked and not hot. Me Wife’s Branzino fillet was unusually thick, dryish and lacked flavor. Everything else great.

The restaurant and food and service was absolutely fantastic. We have been there many times and it continues to be great. This time we used it for our 13th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The atmosphere is very Italian so it’s always a little noisy but that adds to the excitement and the ambience. You can never have a bad time when you choose Piccola for a nice evening out

The service is grade A. The ambience is warm and welcoming, with a lot of attention to detail. Unfortunately, most of our food was over-salted and the calamari was a tad fishy, left us desiring of something else. Like, dare I say it, Bucca di Peppo.

Our food was excellent and our waiter was wonderful. He was from Sicily and it was obvious he enjoys his work. The restaurant was full, but he still maintained a pleasant demeanor and provided great service.

Overall my experience was great. Our food did take a while to come out and they forgot to bring me my coffee. However, they were extremely busy and were trying they’re best to accommodate everyone. The food was delicious and everyone was very pleasant. I will definitely return

This really is a little GEM in the SCV. We always enjoy our meal there. The atmosphere is really pleasant and the noise level is comfortable- you're not wishing it were quieter and yet you feel comfortable to have a big laugh with a group of friends. All the food comes out HOT- which sadly is a big deal these days. The variety on the menu is nice with lots of traditional dishes as well as more inventive specials. We really love it there and will continue to patronize this really great family restaurant. Complimentary valet parking is wonderful...This one's a no brainer- go!

Well, to start my martini was marvelous. We had a party of 4. The Moscow mules were great too. We had the Caesar salad and it’s one of best I’ve ever had. I tried the braised short rib pasta. Wow...it was so good. I usually get the pasta with white sauce and salmon. But this new dish was amazing, and very rich. The others had fish, steak and spaghetti with meatballs. Everything is always so good there. Our service was wonderful. We always had fresh bread and waters filled.
I love Piccola Trattoria. We frequent as often as possible.

have had great meals everytime prior this past saturday evening we came with some friends for dinner
my veal parm with marinara sauce didn't taste anything like marinara

my wifes truffle pasta special either truffles weren't authentic or it wasn't a good batch

fortunately the meals our friends had they loved so that was good
