2016 Long Island Zagat Survey Rates Piccolo with 27 in "Food," 20 in "Decor," and 25 in "Service".

A "faithful" crowd stays true to this upscale New American-Italian in Huntington, which "deserves its reputation" for "superb cuisine" spanning "delicious pastas" to "phenomenal meat and fish"; the "top-notch" service and "intimate" setting with a pianist Sunday-Thursday will "make any occasion special", but make sure to reserve ahead because the cozy "close quarters" fill up fast on the weekends.

Received the "Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator in 2017.

This is my fifth time at Piccolo and have never been disappointed. The service is very good, but not rushed. Portions are generally large. I have had several selections from their menu and have always been impressed with the quality.

If you like a great Italian restaurant to go to in Huntington Piccolo will be your top choice.

We used to dine at Piccolo often when we lived in Lloyd Harbor many years ago, so we were looking forward to visiting again while we were in the area.

All the personnel were rushing around as if there were an emergency somewhere so it was far from a relaxed environment conducive to pleasant dining.

I spoke to a woman who seemed to be in charge and she replied: Well, it’s Saturday night. No excuse, in my mind.

We will not be dining there again, nor recommending it to others. Such a shame. It once was a pleasant spot!

Disappointed. Asked for a quiet table and was placed near the entrance to kitchen and bathrooms.
Felt rushed by staff and food was marginal. The special tuna (supposedly sushi grade) needed a knife to cut it. Too much soy sauce that ruined the taste of the tuna (unless that was the point.
This used to be our “go to” restaurant. Now it is just loud and there is no familiarity for those of us who have been coming to this establishment for over 9 years. :(

I've been going to Piccolo's for about 25 years now, yes 25 years. It has been a place where my friends and I relax and enjoy each other's company and great food. The staff has, in many cases, been there for years, they know their customers and always make newcomers feel welcome and appreciated.

Piccolo never disappoints. The menu has what you'd expect from an Italian restaurant, with a nice variety of additional dishes with flair. I highly recommend the white truffle ravioli - simply delicious! We always seem to have George as our waiter when we go, and it's always a treat - he makes reading the specials and taking our order into a an event, and he knows his stuff. This place is always busy so book ahead, but that's only because it's so darned reliably good!

Our first experience at Piccolo Restaurant of Huntington on a Friday evening. The food was subperb; however, we felt like we were eating at a marathon. Our appetizers, both hot and cold were brough simultaneously. When we questioned the waiter, his response was "really, they brought both together. Our salad was missing tomatoes, that were specifcally requested. As the evening progressed, it got crowded and noisy. The tables for 2 were on top of each other. Shortly after our appetizers ( the ceasar salad was dry but the crab cake was amazing and highly recommended), dinner arrived. Again, wer were barely able to catch our breathes and my wife did not want me to "make a scene" and request the food go back into the kitchen. The main courses were excellent, My wife had the twin lobster tails and I had the veal dish. We skipped desert and left some wine in our bottle. Again, good food, but we felt rushed and once I questioned waiter on the apps, we only saw him to secure the check..

I’ve been enjoying Piccolo’s for 3 decades. It perfect for special occasions or just a mid week dinner for 2. Piccolo’s is best in class on Long Island and blows away any Manhattan venue with service, value, quality, and consistency.

The food and service was fine. However, we were rushed through our meal. Before we could order our wine the waiter was asking what we wanted to eat. We told him we weren’t ready and after he came back repeatedly we ordered. The food was out in minutes. No time to have a relaxing dinner. Portions were overly generous. Not going back. Too many other choices in this town.

Went with a friend that I haven't seen in 7 years and by the end of the meal it was so loud that we could barely hear each other as we're trying to catch up. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Small dining room and was very busy. Only the noise level was an issue for me. I would definitely recommend and go would go back.

This place is a classic, always really good food. They have all the typical Italian dishes and great specials. My favorite is the Veal Chop. They will modify anything that I have ever asked and no one in my party has ever complained or been disappointed in years. I would highly recommend.

The last 2 times we visited, they were out of Martini glasses! A restaurant of this caliber and for the price they charge for a drink, they should NEVER run out of glasses! We had a 7.30 reservation and did not sit down until 8.30pm.

Piccolo is a regular in our rotation because it’s very dependable. Always. Good meal at a reasonable price with a rotation of specials to keep things interesting. Bar area can get very crowded which makes it difficult to check in standing by the door on a cold night - but if that’s the worst that can be said about a place... that’s pretty good!
