Piccolino Italian Ristorante
Some of the best Italian food I have had in Boca. I am Italian and from New York and this meal was quite a surprise. Looking forward to going back. I ordered fried calamari as an appetizer and the coating was fabulous. The coating was crispy and the calamari were tender. My husband had eggplant rotating as an appetizer and it just melted in your mouth. We both ordered veal.....him Parmigiana and me, Francese. Both dishes were fantastic. We indulged with a dessert of profiteroles.......they were unbelievable. Light, fluffy, and delicious. Owner are hospitable, friendly, and delightful. The atmosphere inside is old school and welcoming.
Hidden gem in Boca!!!
great service at reasonable prices - will definitely go back again
HAVE EATEN THERE MANY TIMES. EXCELLENT
ROBERTO CATERED A PARTY FOR US 50 PEOPLE
Wonderful host. Ambience lovely. Food diversified for a family. We would definitely recommend the restaurant and return again
Excellent family Italian restaurant. The Sole Francese special was melt in your mouth! Tortellinis were delicious as well. No room for dessert this time.
The Bolognese sauce is the best in Boca and the owner and his wife couldn’t be friendlier or more attentive. Intimate dining and good food makes it a frequent dining spot.
Service was great. Food was fair. . Restaurant had a musty odor and outdated in appearance.
Now all of a sudden everybody is a food critic, and a restaurant decorator. PLEASE...
Couldn’t find this restaurant because it’s hidden behind the CVS shopping center on Camino Real and Dixie Hwy in Boca, but it was well worth the trip. The restaurant is quaint and old-fashioned and I felt like I was walking into someone’s home in Italy. The owners make you feel welcome and the service was truly accommodating. I’m an Italian from NY and used to very good Italian food. The food was fresh and delicious and the prices were reasonable - especially for Boca. I’m going back and would highly recommend that you try this hidden gem.
A must go to for any occasion. And you must order the incredible cappuccino gelato desert.
Great food as always! Everytime Mark and I visit Florida, we make sure to stop here and get amazing Italian food! Fish Franchesca, Veal Parmesan and the Spinach ravioli are our favorites!
Excellent food ~ will make to order~ authentic delicious entree ~ friendly accommodating staff
Went there for first time with my mom as and a couple of friends. Outstanding food and ambiance. Definitely will be going back soon.
Great food and service. We celebrated my husband BDAY and had a great time here
I dined at Piccolino for the first time last Saturday, and it was outstanding! The service was excellent, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting! The fillet of sole and the tiramisu was the best I have ever had! Highly recommend!
Roberto and Lenora, the owners are the nicest people
We so enjoy going there for dinner
Nice owner service and food. Great linguine white clam sauce and veal or sole franchise.
We need a restaurant lime this quietish so you can have a conversation and actually hear each other.
Honors res time
Everything was amazing !!!!! It feels like you are actually in Italy.
I'm an Italian-American former Brooklynite who was seeking an authentic Italian restaurant experience in this area of south Florida. After trying many "Italian" restaurants in Palm Beach County, I became discouraged. But I FINALLY found THE place. It exceeded my expectations. I felt like I was in a trattoria in Italy. If you are reading this review because you are trying to make a decision ... just stop reading and GO. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Not a four star restaurant as stated. Goid ok but other area Italian restaurants better. Disappointed
please ,when you write a restaurant review be more specific, talk about the food , or service ,do not just promote others Italian restaurants around, explain your disappointment so other reviewers can understand, Thanks very much for your opinion.
Wonderful. Food exceptional. Gracious and personable owners. Have been dining at their restaurant for many years. Always wonderful.
We continue to enjoy excellent meals from this lovely neighborhood Italian restaurant. Regardless of what we order it is always very enjoyable. Tonight my wife had their sole and it was terrific. I ordered the Chicken Piccata and it was delicious. As always very attentive service where the husband/wife ownership team carefully accept reservations so that the restaurant never gets too crowded at one time. If you are looking for excellent food, served by the owners and want very fair pricing then this should not be missed.
Love the fillet of sole.......why isn’t it on the menu?
We are greeted at the door with a hug or friendly greeting.
Food is always delicious, bread is crusty, pasta sauce is very tasty.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.
The food was standard Italian restaurant fare...good but not exceptional. The service was ok, but they were pretty busy and the waitress was trying hard to take care of several groups at the same time.
Like the owner and wife
Roberto and Leonora are such warm and receptive hosts that you feel you are dining with family. Six of us had six different and delicious appetizers, main courses and dessert and everything was delicious. We had a comfortable round table . We will all be back. Hard to find but worth it.
Chicken franchese was good. Sole Franchese was mushy and the salmon special was very mediocre. The pasta side with oil and garlic was terrisble. The pasta with red sauce was ok. Poor selection of wine by the glass. Service was fine. Ambiance is not good - looks old.
I wish I could give this restaurant more than 5 stars. It is the best Italian restaurant in Boca. The food is the finest. The appetizers ( eggplant, meatballs , salad were outstanding and the entrees are absolutely the top. The francese ( chicken, sole, veal ) is the best I have ever tasted....sauce done just right. Pasta was perfect. The service is friendly and excellent; very congenial owner. can't wait to return ( BOSTON DINER )
The owner Roberto is very friendly and eager to please. The eggplant parmigiana was perfect and the sole Francese was the best I ever ate. We are from NY and we know from good Italian food... rest assured you will not be disappointed. If you want a real good Italian meal Piccolino is the place!
Always a pleasure to dine here. The food is amazing and so authentic and fresh. Roberto and Leanora are the owners who pride themselves in their cooking and service. The eggplant,the sole,the veal and the pastas are outstanding. Can’t say enough great things about this restaurant. We have been dining with them from the beginning.
We typically go weekly to this gem which Roberto and Lenora work so hard each day to provide an outstanding meal to their guests.
I haven't written a review in a while so thought tonight I would do so following our meal.
From arrival there are no proprietors as friendly and welcoming as they are. They greet you with a big smile and they do this for all that dine there. Service is personal, friendly and attentive. Food is always delicious and they will customize as needed based on dietary needs. There are fancier and more expensive places in the area that we also frequent but if you are looking for outstanding food prepared and served by wonderful people that truly treat it as they are welcoming you into their home, this is one not to be missed.
Roberto and Leonora are warm, welcoming
Nice dining experience. Good food.
Big number birthday dinner. We could have gone to any restaurant and chose our favorite!
Delicious food, warm and welcoming owners and attractive restaurant.
Owner greeted us at the door. Made u feel welcome. Service was amazing. Food was delicious. Couldn’t do enough for us. Wonderful dinning experience. Would highly recommend.
Well all my salespeople did go for dinner with customers AND
they all had good comments about service and food
I was the one that had a bad night
Sir I think you should have more respect on comments reviews for people that work very hard to make a living , but obviously as everybody can see, nobody ever taught you manners!!!
The food is fantastic. Like walking into Mama's house for dinner. So good, so pleasant. We love them and we love this place.
We were very lucky to find this place. The food and service is excellent. Can’t wait to go again,
Delightful ! Food was delicious and service was attentive....A bit noisy!
