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.

Confused staff except the lady in the dining room. I also think $15 a drink is to much. Mistakes from kitchen etc.. surprised as we used to really like going there. Hopefully just an off night

Always a favorite, but a little disappointing this time. We were seated in a table by the front window by the bar. Service was VERY slow... after each course we had to wait a long time for the waiter to come back. Our guests kept commenting that they thought the waiter forgot about us because we weren't in the main dining room. We'll be sure to only sit in the main dining areas in the future. Otherwise, everything was superb as always.

It was an OK restaurant. Nothing to go out of our way for.Nothing on the menu to gbab you and think WOW this is good! Should have something memorable on menu to remember and think "I,m coming back to this place". Especially since we have to drive at least a half an hour to get there. Now we get to the price---WAS NOT WORTH IT! Prices way to high for what you get. TONY C.

To celebrate our Anniversary, we went to our favorite restaurant. Piccolo is a Manhattan quality restaurant located in Huntington. They treat you like family. We were seated immediately by the manager. It has a quiet distinguished atmosphere. Two waiters served us. The food was delicious. The service was excellent. I like that they don’t rush you and don’t ignore you either. Too often I find the wait staff hound you to place your order, bother you while eating than disappear. Here they could not be more accommodating and courteous. We both had the Red Snapper special over Risotto. My wife had finished the Risotto but not the fish. When the waiter packed it up to go, he gave her more Risotto. The manager greeted us an arrival and thanked us for coming. This was truly a great Anniversary meal.
Furthermore, this was our favorite restaurant to take my aged mother. It is ground level without any steps, Very comfortable and the wait staff always catered to her. Needless to say we love this place.

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.
