We love dining at Piccolino's. Its our favorite restaurant and the food is amazing. Every staff member is friendly and cordial - they make you feel like family. We look forward to it everytime!
Outstanding knowledge by our waiter, great drinks, great food, amazing service. We've been missing out.
Portions are small for the price and kitchen was backed up so long wait for our food. Service was good and beautifully decorated place. We’ve been here at least 3 times and keep hoping it will be a better experience each time but always leave with this same impression. When the bill arrived we realized we could have had steak dinners for our party of 5 somewhere nice for the same price. Appetizers are suitable for 1 or maybe 2 to eat. Very small. Don’t ask the server to surprise you or you will end up with a 40 dollar dish.
My wife and I eat here three to four times a year and we always enjoy it. Last weekend the food was great again and the place was full. Glad to see business is doing well so this gem will stay here.
I drove from San Diego for a business dinner reluctantly but was really glad I did. The service was top notch. I am a very picky Italian cook and rarely eat at Italian restaurants but this was fantastic. Both of my guests enjoyed their meals very much as well. I will definitely make the trip here again. It was well worth the drive.
Always a wonderful experience, the staff and they way they treat the customers is superb. My main course was one of the evenings specials, veal 18oz. While the meat was high quality I was really unimpressed with the entire plate. The pasta dishes are amazing though and definitely worth a try. Wine selection is top notch, there is also plenty of liquor choices for your favorite cocktail.
This was an excellent find. We were looking for something near the movie theaters in Rancho Santa Margarita. This came up on Open Table with excellent reviews. The food was excellent and so was the service. It would have been difficult to find without GPS. We will be back.
The overall experience was wonderful. The staff was accommodating and gave us the quiet booth we asked for. Our server was enthusiastic and attentive. The owner stopped by to ensure that we were happy. Our meal was delicious and plentiful. If you like to bring your own wine, the corkage is only $0.25 for the first bottle Monday thru Thursday. Yes, just a quarter!!
This was our first time here and absolutely loved Picvolino. It is great for a special occasion or just when you want a really nice Italian meal. We all got different items - super fresh and delicious. It is a new favorite and now we don’t have to travel to Prego or Il Fornaio for upscale Italian dishes!!
Tried it based upon the Orange county register food reporter's recommendation, he wasn't wrong. A bit out of the way and in a dead shopping center, don't despair as the food was worth it.
My husband and I love going here. It is a special treat for anniversary or Valentines date. We don’t go often because it is a bit pricey. This time it was very noisy and noticed they put TVs in the restaurant. ( They moved from a smaller space to a much larger space. ) When we go out we prefer to not have distractions like TVs and noise.
We were expecting the quiet ambience it had when it was smaller, but was disappointed on how loud it was. I am deaf in my left ear so noisy restaurants are difficult for me.
Other than that, the food was great the service was fantastic too.
Great food and great service
Always fantastic service and food! Don’t let the strip mall location fool you... it’s a great restaurant. Very nice dining experience.
We went for Valentine's and this was our first time. The dinner was excellent. It was a little pricey but very good. Our waiter was great and attentive. We plan to go back again.
We have been to Piccolino's several times and we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff insures you are comfortable, enjoying your meal, taking empty plates and re-filling your water glass.
Went there for Valentines Day. Place was overcrowded. Too many people for the restaurant to handle well. Long wait for our entrees. My wife's steak was cold from the kitchen; she had to send it back. The service was hit and miss. They gave us only a $15 credit for the cold steak and long wait. Not impressed. We've been there before and were satisfied. They just couldn't handle the large crowd.
Excellent food and service, but a bit noisy, which was to be expected with a large crowd and being Valentines Day.
Valentine's Day prix fix menu was excellent. We are never disappointed when we done at piccolino.
The food is absolutely delicious. The service was wonderful.
Lovely dining experience.
The menu it very extensive and the food superb. This was my second visit as a requent business traveler to the area. I plan on frequenting Piccolino quite often. The others in my party were equally impressed.
Excellent risotto! Great service. All the food was fresh and beautiful presentation. They also gave us complimentary sparkling wine for our anniversary!
The duck confit ravioli had a taste that I didn't like, perhaps bacon? The veal piccata was fine. A bit high priced for not truly excellent food.
Second time dinning here, first time in their new expanded location. Waited for our table, arrived a little early, server arrived promptly, a little pushy on getting an order placed. The minestrone soup was a little bland, house salad good. A polenta with sausage dish was very good, the Fettuccine was undercooked, rubbery. The owner said they cook pasta al dente, but not so. For the price of entree's and the result we experienced, not a place we would return to soon.
Picollino's is an authentic Italian restaurant which does a GREAT job representing the foods of Italy. When we came back from a three week visit to the Italian coast we didn't go out for Italian food for month's since we knew it wouldn't live up to our experience dining in Italy. Picollino's changed all of that! BTW, ask for Joanna - she is a top notch server and made our recent visit an outstanding experience!
Everything went great, food was amazing.
We love Piccolino! The staff and food and quality is top notch! We love the fish, pizza and steak dishes!! Everything is fresh and well prepared and seasoned. It’s our favorite go to Italian!!
Great. Very nice evening
Love this place! We go there for special dinners whenever we can.
The carpaccio de pera and salsiccia pizza were so good!
This was the 5th time I’ve been here in the last three months and is my new favorite place!
Great night for early New Year’s Eve dinner. We did not realize it was a set menu they were very accommodating. Osso bucco was delicious!!! The waiter was amazing!! I would dine here again!!!
Wonderful service from friendly host stand, greeting us with smiles & happiness, quick time to see reservation & seat us.... to our lovely wait- staff!
Food is truly fresh, tasty & we always finish our entire plate & get yummy dessert!
Excellent food, excellent service and great hospitality
Great local Italian restaurant. Great food, amazing service and overall wonderful dining experience. Took our kids for their 5th wedding anniversary and Piccolino's did not disappoint. We were treated to fantastic service by professionals that know how to make an evening memorable. We will be back again and again!!
the happy hour bar wine menu is very confusing to fool the customer.
the cost of wine in the restaurant is very expensive overall. thanks
Although it was the busy holiday schedule, the staff seated us quickly, and our service team was exceptional (even bringing additional pecorino, when requested.) The food was reminiscent of a recent trip to Tuscany, and was very much enjoyed.
Always good food and service !! The specials are always so delicious
