Piccolino has really great Italian food and a relaxing atmosphere. It's owned and run by a married couple...it's not a chain restaurant or corporately owned. We eat there whenever we're in the area.

The meatball appetizer is the best! The filet of sole cannot be beat! The atmosphere is inviting and friendly.

Roberto and Leonora are the owners and are so very special. The food is fantastic and so lovingly prepared. They work so hard to make everything so special. They are so warm and friendly and I cannot rave enough about the food from the eggplant to gnocchi to sole to veal cannoli and limoncello. All of it is wonderful. A true 5 star restaurant. Thank you Roberto and Leanora for always making it a wonderful dining pleasure

The service, while very friendly, was very slow. The veal was tough and chewy and seemed to be unseasoned even with the piziiola sauce. The veal francese was tough also. Everyone else’s food was just “ok”. The calamari was excellent. Maybe it was an off night, but there are so many other Italian restaurants in the same price range that are better.

Very authentic Italian food in a nice homey atmosphere. The service was excellent and everyone was friendly. I recommend trying Chef Roberto's meatballs (just like nonna made them) and the veal, prepared anyway you like it. Overall, everything was delicious. We will be going back.

Always phenomenal. Leo and Roberto are the best. Must have the sole franchaise or the Veal Parm. The mussels in a red sauce to start. Prices are also excellent. A true hidden gem in Boca.

Continues to be a wonderful dining experience. Last night we brought a couple with us that have never been here before. We knew beforehand their dining taste and they thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to return. They loved the food. The service, as always, was very attentive. Roberto and Leo work very hard to deliver an outstanding Italian meal.

What a hidden gem! This is your local neighborhood Italian! Food and service are fantastic! Don’t tell too many people about it as it will get spoiled. The sole franchise is to die for. Husband and wife team is phenomenal. We are originally from NJ and this rivals any restaurant we would frequent!

A great find in Boca—tucked away in a small shopping area. Food was really fabulous, well-prepared and real Italian food. Service caring and attentive. Smaller menu of classics, but they do everything well and seem to care. Delicioso!

Chef-owner made his rounds greeting all and going through his nightly specials.

Don’t miss this gem.

It’s perpendicular to the Fresh Market & CVS on West Camino Real in Boca Raton.

Wonderful family run restaurant. Everything is made fresh and is excellent. Note: If you have food allergies Roberto will prepare your food made to order just let him know in advance the first time. Also he uses non latex gloves so if you have a latex allergy you can safely eat here. There are hardly any nice restaurants in South Florida that you can eat at if you have a latex allergy. This is one of the best.

Birthday Dinner. They brought out a delicious piece of tiramisu with a birthday candle.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The chef/owner? (I am not sure) came out to interact with all the customers. He was a delight. I asked about a dish not on the menu- chicken saltimboca- he said that he would make whatever I wanted, just to give him a day or two notice! Unfortunately, we live in Jacksonville, but you can be sure the next time we visit Boca Raton we will be back pronto!

What a happy place Piccolino is! We can’t wait to return. The sole franchese is an outstanding meal. Veal parmag with pasta as good as I’ve ever had anywhere.

The restaurant is hidden a bit hard to find if you haven’t been there before. Call it a hidden gem.

Although the service was good, most of the entrees were not. Eggplant had too much ricotta cheese and was mushy. Veal Marsala did not have much flavor and the sauce for the penne vodka was too heavy. The sole francaise was tasty.
