    As always, the food at piccolo sogno is so so good. Service is too notch, and they probably have one of the greatest patios in the city.

    My three friends and I sat outside for lunch on the lovely patio. It has been a summertime favorite of ours for years. Unfortunately, the quality and consistency of the food has dropped the past two years. Our margherita pizza was fine, and the mixed seafood starter was properly fried, but the octopus special was tough, and the mushroom starter "just okay, according to my friend." The warm chocolate cake with liquid center was very tasty, as in the past. The prices have gone up, as they have most places. The mushroom risotto special was $32. When I commented to the waiter that that seemed rather high, he said that I could get it as an appetizer, too, and went to check the price. It was "$27 for the appetizer portion, and $32 as a main course", which made no sense to any of us. Alas, at this point I would give it 5 stars for the outdoor ambience, and 3 stars for the food.

    Everything was great, as usual. Only one aspect prevented the experience from being “5 star”. We were seated at 4:30 and at 7:30 our waiter told us there was a time limit and they needed our table. Perfectly understandable if we weren’t ordering more wine, dessert and after dinner drinks, but we were doing all of those things. We finished quickly, but the “rushed” ending is certainly not what I have come to expect from Piccolo Sogno.

    I understand the time restrictions, but felt rushed. Seated inside, right next to another table. The whole room was vacant except for our two tables. Would have liked to have sat at least one table apart.

    Our reservation was at 8:30 we were not sat until 9:15, we drank at the bar while we waited but it was pretty ridiculous. The food took quite a long time and was cold when it came out. Our waiter and our drinks were fantastic. But poor service at the host stand and food wasn’t worth it.

    Piccolo Sogno is absolutely wonderful! The lovely garden setting, the excellent service, and the delicious, thoughtful menu add up to a near-perfect evening. We shared and greatly enjoyed the caprese salad and the mushroom spinach antipasto. One of our party ordered the soft shell crab, which was amazing. The risotto and ravioli were also well done. We splurged on dessert and had no regrets. We also found on the enormous wine list a bottle of Piemonte which we're still talking about. This was not our first visit to Piccolo Sogno but was the first for our guest, who simply loved it.

    That patio is simply magical, the fact that it's also a welcoming place, with friendly and efficient staff, and good food makes it a slam dunk. The crowd/vibe is urbane and upmarket, but not at all stuffy or pretentious. Great place for friends night out, date night, or adult families. Just lovely.

    My partner and I love Piccolo Sogno! The food, ambience, service has always been exceptional. It is a top notch special occasion place. We recently made a Tuesday night reservation for our anniversary. As always the food was exceptional yet they seemed short of staff on the patio. By the time we left they were packed and service began to lag. Is it just us, or has service kinda lagged since Covid? Just the same, everyone was attentive as possible and it is great to know Piccolo Sogno has retained its phenomenal menu and food preparation. We will go again soon!

    Overall good. Good location, good servers. The most important thing, the food, is not as good as I expected. The dessert is just OK, the cocktail isn't good and there are sands in mussels and clams. BTW, parking shall be paid in cash. They will ask you for money when you are not finished.

    We had a fantastic father’s day dinner here- first time at this restaurant. From Spritz cocktails to varied pasta dishes (spinach gnocchi!!!!) to dessert and espresso, everything was delicious and our waiter and other service was great!! We were outside in garden seating— a little packed but charming. Would highly recommend it!!

    Initially we were seated outside in the very back corner against the building surrounded by walls and the service station. It really should not be an option for outdoor seating. When we asked, they were able to accommodate us in the garden surrounded by trees and lights, etc. Food and service were both very good.

    Made reservations for the patio weeks in advance. I was worried because they state no guarantees ...nice surprise when they said we can sit out there. It was magical no wonder this is the place to be in the summer, the entire dining experience took us to italy without the airfare. 1st time here and looking forward to many more dining experiences. Thank you Chef and your entire staff

    Birthday comp should be better than biscotti. We also were served soup spoons for our coffee. Finally, the restaurant should remove a number of tables--feels too crowded. My earlier visit was a experience.

    Delicious food with a focus on wood burning oven preparation. Extensive wine list. Attentive wait staff. Beautiful patio setting. Highly recommend! We were able to get a reservation on a Friday evening after a flight delay caused an overnight stay in Chicago.
