Italian
A Sicilian by way of Chicago, from a family of Sicilian chefs and restaurateurs. He made a name for himself, serving Orange County for 30 years. Piccolino serves some of the best Italian inspirations in Orange County. Piccolino retains its Sicilian philosophy and passion for food by combining traditional old-world flavors and contemporary infusions. When Salvatore Faso opened Piccolino Ristorante in 2007, his goal was simple: to combine his lifelong experiences in the finest Italian restaurants with the finest ingredients, authenticity, preparation, and his passion for the Canyon and its surrounding communities. Piccolino Ristorante serves regional Italian cuisine, including artisan-made pasta, fresh wild-caught fish, and the finest meats and poultry on the market daily. Vintage décor, white tablecloths, and candlelit tables provide a romantic dining experience.

"Chi mangia bene, Vive bene!"

"La buona cucina rende allegria!"

Buon Appetito & Mille Grazie, ci si vede presto!

    Excellently prepared fine Italian food from soup to dessert. Chicken and Eggplant parmigiana were delicious as was the antipasto Misto and cauliflower soup. The dessert was melt in your mouth.

    We always have a wonderful experience at Piccolino. Considering it was Mother's Day, thought it might be a bit crazy there but the service was exceptional!!! Katerina was on top of everything and always a joy to be around. We love her!!

    Went for mothers Day brunch, and they sat us by the kitchen I could literally see inside the kitchen. The food was burnt, and salmon was undercooked, and it took forever to get our food. My personal experience bad, tried it because it had good reviews, but that was not the case for us. won't go back.
