Great food. Personnel friendly from the moment you walk in the door. Christine is a gem of a server.. She knows what we like. Conscientious, sweet and friendly.

My friends and our husbands were doing a belated Christmas get together.

The food was outstanding and the service was as well.

My husband ordered the veal chop special as did one of the other guests, I had the stuffed shrimp. Everything was so perfectly cooked and we all either finished our dishes or took home the leftovers. No one was leaving anything behind, cause it was so yummy.

When you can please 8 people ( two owned a restaurant for 25 years) you are doing something right.

I had been to this restaurant for almost a year, and for the life of me, I cannot explain why. I will definitely be back much sooner.

Planned Christmas Eve dinner with my family, made reservations weeks in advance and the hostess had a hard time finding reservation. I pulled my phone to show her the confirmation as she rolled her eyes. She walked us over to the worst table in the place right next to the kitchen door. I knew we were in for a long night. Service was horrible, they seemed to focus on two large parties and we were ignored. Our waiter was invisible for most of the night. All the meals were fine except for mine. I ordered Chicken Marsala which was slapped on the plate and presentation was poor. I wanted to send it back but our waiter was MIA and asked the bus help for service but he disappeared. I ate about half of the meal when the waiter finally reappeared, asked me if I wanted to take home the rest of my meal. Nope....wouldn't give this to my dog! I know Christmas Eve is a busy night but no excuse for poor service and poor food preparation. This is the second time I've had a bad experience and I'm done with this place.

This is the 3rd or 4th year in a row that we've celebrated Christmas Eve at Piccolo's. We love the food and the live music is a nice addition to the holiday. Made for a wonderful family celebration.

Worst service, waitress told us dinner was running late due to a large party but it would be ready soon. She swung by again 10 mins after and said the same thing. Then she swung by a third time and said all was ready and it would be out in 3 mins....20 moms later dinner arrived; we were there for 1 and a half hours before our dinner was served. Why would they just tell us the truth the first time and comp us a meal vs hide the truth and keep apologizing.....horrible way to handle customers. Sad part is we like the place and the food....

We had a great time at this small byob. We brought a bottle of wine , there was no cork fee. I got the special which was lobster ravioli with jumbo lump crab and colossal shrimp, my girlfriend got the chicken parm (which was huge!) both great value. We enjoyed our time and would go back. The only complaint I would say was the dessert selection. All the options came out on a tray, there were about 10 different cakes, and one coconut ball Pastry. That’s it. No true selection

The food was ok but the service was just horrendous! After being seated, we waited about 10 minutes for a waiter to come to our table and rudely ask,"what do you guys want?" No hello or welcome or even telling us about the specials. We probably should have gotten up and left right then. It was the most awkward dining experience I've had due to this waiters rudeness which continued throughout the dining experience not to mentions long delays in receiving food and two sodas. It ruined what was supposed to be a nice evening out for my husband and I.

This is a "go-to" place for us. The food is excellent and reliable. My husband is a paleo eater, and there is plenty to order that is not pasta. We like that salads are included and especially LOVE that it is a BYO. It can be quite noisy, so it's not good for a large group. A good local gem.

While the live music is a nice idea, it’s much too loud if you’re sitting close to them. It’s not necessary, and the music has little to do with the restaurant theme.
