Another nice dinner at Piccollo Tratoria in Newtown. Brian (our waiter) is always very attentive.
Management goes out of their way to assure you are having a nice dining experience. A quality you don't see in many restaurants.

We went on NYE for dinner. There was a limited menu, prices were higher than normal, and the food was simply not good. My daughter sent her dinner back because it was not what she ordered and it came back exactly the same. Everything lacked flavor. My chicken was completely overcooked. The burrata was sour. I tried to speak with a manager but nobody came. I emailed them on their website and I haven't heard back. I understand that holidays are busy and sometimes things fall through the cracks but when a customer lets you know something is very wrong, do something to correct the problem. Remake the dish the right way, let them talk to a manager, take a little something off the bill. Nothing was done.

The food as usual was superb. It was Christmas Eve and we had a 7:15 reservation and didn’t get seated until 7:50. It could have been sooner but they were seating people even though their entire wasn’t at the restaurant, therefore causing a delay. We waited over an hour for our food to arrive. There were only six of us and we didn’t order anything complicated. Management came over twice and apologized for the wait as well as our waiter who was fantastic. After paying our check management gave us a gift card for a future visit. We definitely will return for our usual visits, but might skip Christmas Eve.

One out of two dishes was very good. Took too long and three "asks" to get 2 wineglasses. Very tight physically, and noisy. A number of large parties. Overall, average to good Italian.

Had the Mai-Mai Special. Fish was very good BUT served with cold vegetables! Server should be taught how to handle wine bottle and glasses. She had her hands all over where one's lips rest! Service was a bit slow and we arrived at 5:00 PM.

Very accommodating. Understood that we were with several hungry children. We showed up early for our reservation and the table ahead of us had not cleared out yet so they allowed us to sit in the front section of the restaurant where they proceeded to serve us as if we were in there seated area. Very friendly, good food, great pizza and salads and generous portions on the adult and kid menus. Would go back again.

This is our second time at Piccolo Trattoria. We had asked for a quiet table, as we had last time but there seemed to be no way that could happen this time. It was very busy, and they had to make room for a large party in the front of the restaurants so we were put into the back with everyone else. It was very noisy and hard to hear. Service was a little slow (presumably due to the volume). Food was great, as it was the first time. Each of the meals were delicious.

I had a reservation that you did not honor, once again. A reservation means being seated at that time, not being told to wait for 25 minutes. Very disappointing!

I had a reservation for 2 for 7pm on Saturday 11/2. Upon arrival I was told it would be a 20 min wait. What is the point of a reservation if it’s going to be a 20 min wait? Next we were sat at a table directly behind the hostess area that seemed out of place and in a high foot traffic area. One waitress stopped by, saw we had a bottle of wine and said she would be back with wine glasses. That was the last we saw of her. We sat for 15 mins and no one came to take our order so we got up and left

My wife enjoyed her seafood portofino, and I had one of the additions of the day -- a gorgeous 16-ounce veal rib shop, grilled to perfection and served with a wonderful mushroom sauce, tiny multicolor potatoes, and perfectly cooked veg. The octopus appetizer is awesome. Service is superb.

Food was very good as usual. There were 4 of us and we had something different, from pasta to seafood, to salad. Even had dessert which I don't normally do. Everyone enjoyed the food. Waiter was a bit rude, very short with all his comments. And since it was a meet-up and we had a late reservation we stayed kind of late- surprisingly they just started turning lights off on us. Would have been more appropriate to let us know they were closing and ask if we could rap up rather than just start turning the lights off. Have eaten here several times and never had a rude waiter or experience like that with the lights before, so a bit surprised by it all. But the food was very good as usual.

Tara jumped right in and took care of us and the food was outstanding!
The music was great and the husband/wife duo was so sweet!

Had entertainment, but was hard to hear. A nice casual BYOB we go to a least once a month.
