Had a dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our 2 sons and their wives and 2 grandchildren (ages 6 & 2) also attended. Our waiter, Brandon was probably one of the best waiters I have ever had. He worked with my daughter-in-law to take care of the grandchildren. He made sure the wine that I brought was served and placed in a bucket of ice. Orders were promptly taken and delivered. Almost everyone had something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. There were 3 meals where there was so much food that some had to be taken home. The rest of the staff was efficient in removing plates when needed. An overall excellent meal. I would recommend anyone to come and enjoy.

We always enjoy dining at Piccollo in Newtown . It's a great BYOB. They have the Best Brooklyn pizza, and the desserts are to die for. The Owner always goes out of his way to greet us, and our waiter Brian never disappoints.

Great dinner. Owner was very attentive and interested in making sure everyone had a good experience. Food was great. Portions large and everything was freshly prepared and tasty. Our waiter was a little hard to find at times but we managed to get the attention we needed from other staff members. This is a local place in a shopping center but you get a good meal and the prices are pretty fair.

Piccolo Trattoria is a very friendly Italian restaurant. The staff are lovely and the service is prompt. Unlike many other restaurants, it offers more than one entree choice for vegetarians, in addition to the ubiquitous salad that most restaurants seem to think is sufficient for vegetarian customers. Their artisan pizzas are delicious. I really recommend their fig pizza. It has a hint of sweetness and the greens with the well chosen cheese topping makes it a very satisfying slice. They offer quite a selection of desserts. The portions were enormous. However, we found their carrot cake to be dry and over sweetened. You could barely taste the carrots. However, their cannoli more than made up for it. The restaurant is BYOB, making it a pleasant place to catch up with friends, over a nice bottle of wine or two.

Very personable and friendly people. Excellent service and wonderful Italian food. Although the atmosphere is rather casual and it is possible to get a slice of pizza, it also has a really nice menu for a special dinner. The Pasta Faraj made with mushrooms in a cream sauce was every bit as good as restaurants in Northern Italy. Best Italian restaurant in the area.

Simple Italian cuisine. Don’t expect anything over the top but what you can expect is a great meal with great service. Everyone is very friendly and the soups are fantastic. Be sure to try the back wrapped shrimp. I will say I wonder if they have different cooks on different nights. But otherwise it’s a great place to go for a good meal. Plus it’s a BYOB cuts your bill in half. Usually go to just catch up with friends and can’t beat the prices. Very reasonable.

It’s ok for very casual dining. I am thinking stick with Pizza and Pasta. It’s not a place to fine authentic Italian. It’s very basic.
I just didn’t feel it. So many other local better places.

Once again, Piccolo Trattoria did not disappoint. Our family tends to choose this restaurant not only for many of our special occasions and celebrations, but for take-out as well. The dishes are very tasty and the service is good. There is a good selection of specials as well to pick from, which always makes choosing an entrée very difficult!! We have never had a bad meal here. Looking forward to our next visit to Piccolo!

For some reason, the restaurant was full to bursting. We had a waiter who had difficulty understanding my husbands order and then we waited for about an hour before our food was ready. This is not what usually happens when we dine there. As always, the food was excellent. When the dessert tray was offered at 8 pm, there was no selection left. Also unusual. I have no idea what was going on but something was definitely “off”.

Special seafood risotto was overpriced when compared with my expectations. This is still a suburban strip mall Italian restaurant that serves typical Italian food that one can find in any middle class suburb. Saturday night was busy and the service was poor. Hardly saw our waiter after he took our order.

I was very disappointed in our dining experience. Our waiter was new and completely unfamiliar with the menu and process of order taking and waiting on customers. We tried to work with him since we could see after a short while that his was new . Our disappointment is not with him but for the managing staff that left him on without guidance all on his own. Our night went from bad to worse when the we received the wrong entree and stale dessert cake 😟 And never got our salads that came with our entrees

Always reliably good, and I like that soup or salad is included. Being a BYO is a huge draw for this place. When crowded, it's very loud. Always ask for the price of the specials, because they are 'specially' expensive, usually $10+ more than other stuff on the menu. If you sub out the pasta for a vegetable, such as spinach, be aware that there is an upcharge--around $3.50, I believe.
This restaurant is one of our 'go-to's.' Reliable, affordable, BYO, and very good food.

As much as I want to like this restaurant I just can't do it, it's amazing how busy it is considering the poor representation and preparation of the food, they misrepresented pasta as one kind when it was really another, the three people at the front never greeted our party, they were too busy correcting each other and never looked up once to say hello or even smile, they have been poorly trained , I understand that the owner and the "cooks" are not Italian (not even close to Italian) , that may explain why the food is not even close to being authentic, the meat was actually burned, way past overcooked, as I explained to a poorly English speaking waiter he did not "get it" and simply dismissed my concerns, we had two dishes at the table that were served this way, there are far too many better choices in this area, do not be fooled by the crowd, and forget about trying to talk to your party, it's so loud in this place especially with a "musician" playing , I have finally learned my lesson by never coming here again, it's just not worth it
