My wife and I had a lovely evening dining at Piccolo. The meal was well prepared and tasty; the wine pairing was excellent and the service was exceptional. Chef even came out and had a chat with the last few diners. Would definitely recommend. Seems the menu changes frequently, so check if you're going for a specific item.
Pasta was excellent, munk fish was excellent, I will be back.
The food is always delicious. The only people in the restaurant:
there was a wedding party and my party of five.
I like going there not only is the food consistent; but it is a place to dine and to spend the evening.
Food was good. Customer service was lacking but worst of all, the chef was a total jerk! I saw his reaction to a special request that was quite simple. I won't be coming back.
We felt like we were dining in a family trattoria in Rome . Our hostess/waitress was warm and personable and made us feel at home. She perfectly described the dishes and helped with recommendations. Their menu is small but we enjoyed every course. Salad was beautiful and perfectly dressed with a light lemony vinaigrette and the three meat meatballs had a great depth of flavor. We liked the bison Bolognese and the fusilli amatrichanna as our main courses. We would order them again. And dessert was an awesome peach cobbler. This was our first visit but won't be our last. In a town with many great Italian restaurants this one is one of the best.
We were looking for a new Italian restaurant in town (we're veterans of the big 2) and figured we would try Piccolo because it's close by. We were greeted warmly by the owner and were blown away by the quality of food. The menu was very creative for an Italian restaurant. Prices may seem high for pasta dishes, but you're paying for better ingredients and the creativity I mentioned earlier. Our only critique is that they could probably use a couple of standard appetizers for diners not looking to stray too far.
Highly recommend! Give it a shot
Piccolo is a great little Italian gem tucked away among the restaurants on Commercial. It's tiny with about 5-6 tables only. We were the only ones there when we arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night and saw one other (vegan) couple come and go while we took our time dining. Now for the food: There was no seafood on the menu, and the overall choices were limited to 1 steak, 1 poultry, and 1 pasta - all unique dishes as well. The food was excellent! My husband and I both got the duck pasta special that night, and it was filling and absolutely delicious. Piccolo is family owned and that shows in the high-quality service as well.
The server was the owners brother in law and he was very attentive and good. The kitchen did not follow the food requests and the food was very salty. I felt it was also overpriced for what you got. Will not return.
Always a pleasure to dine at Piccolo's. A small place where a reservation would be strongly suggested. They have an good wine list but patron's can bring their own choices with a corkage fee.
Entree's are seasonable an creative, with many of the favorites on a menu rotation.
This evening Lamb chops were the meat of choice, other times it can be a veal chop or a Fillet. There is always a special of a fish as well as a game bird . Pasta is always plentiful too.
Coffee is made by the cup so it is always wonderful and fresh.
Top notch. One of the best dinners we world travelers and former 3 year residents of Paris have had any in any US city.
what a great find!! everything about this small charming restaurant was wonderful!! Delicious food-- fresh, beautiful presentation and creative Italian dishes! Loved our dining experience-- can't wait to go back and bring friends!
Delicious dinner with friends! Especially the Covina over risotto.
Menu very limited, and who offers only one dessert! Service was very slow.
The pasta was fabulous - smooth, melt in your mouth. Friendly service. Nice wine list but expensive - recommend adding choices in lower price range.
