Piccolo Trattoria - Newtown
fried tender calamari tossed with hot cherry peppers and served with marinara sauce
There was no social distancing and the owner was running around without a mask or w his mask pulled down. The food took two hours to come out. It wasn’t a good experience.
The kitchen was a bit understaffed which caused a delay took 2 hours to get main course .... but service was attentive and when food arrived it was delicious.
Our reservation was for 7pm. We were seated at 7:20. Orders placed at 7:40. At 9pm still no entrees. The server never checked on us. We walked out at 9pm. We will never go back there.
Very crowded with little to no social distancing. Service was horrible waited two hours for entrees.
Amazing food as always! One of the best in Bucks!
We had reservations for 630 but never got seated till 7:30. We actually had a table but owner decided to give it to someone else. Will not be returning any time soon
Felt very comfortable, all proper protocols in place. As always, food was beyond great. It was Valentine's Day, so, they were busy, but we never felt forgotten. As usual, the owner was there, always checking to see if we were good, and even serving food. That's one of the reasons we love this place.
We even had my daughter's engagement dinner here, a few years back.
Food was great, hot and plentiful. We all took leftovers home and ate them today.
Service in the beginning was wonderful and our server was very pleasant. Dinner took awhile to get, but that was expected. However, after our dinner was served, waited a long, long time, and finally asked hostess to please ask our server to stop at our table. Then awhile later, when he arrived, we asked him to bring us two cappuccinos and one dessert. Then we were able to get the check. We had a reservation at 7 pm and we left the restaurant around 9:45pm, and by that time there were only a few tables remaining.
Too long of a waiting period from start to finish. I am recommending the restaurant for the food, but be mindful of the service.
Very overrated. Food was not very good. Took 40 mins to get our appetizer after it was ordered. The waiter was not very friendly. The ambiance was sad. We looked around at the various tables and people had blank stares on their faces as they waited for food. The decor was nice. Very confused though why there were space heaters throughout when they should have heat. There are much, much better places to go to.
The food is excellent and the price is very good. Our waiter did a great job. Not intrusive but aware. Lovely neighborhood gem.
Absolutely OUTSTANDING! Food &Service were perfect. The menu seems to have changed — compared to a few years ago we used to visit more frequently. New Chef maybe?
Regardless, an outstanding meal at reasonable prices. Definitely will come back more often.
One of our fave places - never disappoints!
Always great service and food.
Always great food and professional waitstaff. We had not been there since the pandemic started, but were very happy we came back.
Very disappointed. Would not recommend. Food was tasteless and not cooked as described. Apprecaited management trying to make it right
Every thing was great definitely coming back. For was delicious
Unfortunately we waited over an hour for cold pasta & this undercooked eggplant dish. No server or staff checked in at all. This will be our last visit.
Had a great meal last night dining at the trattoria! Cant wait to come back!
Quiet night with great comfort food.
Food was delicious and plentiful. The restaurant was full so it was quite noisy and servicer was a little slow and forgetful but still a worthy meal and location.
We usually like Piccolo Trattoria but this past Saturday night was disappointing. We had asked for a quiet table but once we arrived it was clear that would not be possible. It was incredibly loud. The food was quite good, as it usually is. The service, however , was not good. It took a very long time to have our wine (that we brought) opened and to receive wine glasses. The server did the best he could but it took over an hour for our main dishes to come out. We were a party of 6 but a party of two that came quite some time after us were served well before us. We weren't forgotten about because the server stopped by from time to time to see how we were. By the time it was dessert time, it was too late for us to think about it... We will try it again sometime in the near future.
Food was good, but it was so noisy!You had to talk very loud! The tables are very close together, so you’re actually sitting with strangers.
Delicious food (especially the octopus), wonderful waiter. A bit noisy, but hard to expect otherwise: it was Saturday night and the place was crowded. Would certainly return.
First time dining here and couldn't be happier. The food was great quality and a fantastic value. Make sure you leave room for the peanut butter bomb cake. Or at least get one to go. Brian was a phenomenal waiter and provided great recommendations. Will be going back.
Great food. Great service.
Brooklyn pizza is incredible. Pastas are amazing.
Place is a mess. We arrived Friday night for a 7:15 pm reservation via Opentable Over 20 parties in line ... all with reservations and .... not an empty table in the whole place . Obviously no concern for customers STAY AWAY !
The food and service at the restaurant are excellent. HOWEVER, the tables are too closely jammed in and the noise level was unbearable. We could not hear the people sitting across from us. It was a Saturday night at 7:30pm--probably the busiest time. We were also bumped into more times than we can count, especially by the harried staff.
Too many tables are jammed into a small space
Great food and good atmosphere. Favorite restaurant in Newtown. The balsamic salad dressing is amazing and they sell it to go. I could eat the Spring Mix Salad with Salmon every day!
Great meal and world class service from Brian our waiter.
Very nice casual place. Our table for 2 was a little congested, just because of all the items on it, such as bread, bread plates, salt, pepper, water, drinks etc. We just put the bread on the empty table next to us, and everything was fine. The wait staff was very friendly, the food was nicely proportioned, and while the restaurant was packed for the Valentines weekend, the noise level wasn’t even noticeable. We got a free cannoli through the Yelp app, which really was a nice touch.
We’ve been to the restaurant many times and have always been pleased overall. This was our first time there for a special menu evening (Valentines Day). The food was not up to the usual standards (stale bread, food served cold) but even worse was that they added about 10 extra tables to what is already a fairly crowded restaurant. We felt claustrophobic the entire time, no privacy at all - a really bad idea despite the owner telling us he had to do it to take advantage of the holiday to make extra money. Unfortunately we will not be going back for a while.
Valentines Day— very nice special menu. Food was excellent and no pressure to get us to eat and leave
Had a reservation for two on Valentines Day. Seated immediately. Place was packed due to Valentines being a Friday night. Service was prompt and food came out quickly. Meals (strip steak and chicken parm) were HUGE, very good value as we always like to take some home. Only complaint was the calamari; again a huge plate but they weren’t particularly good and they may have been from frozen. Desserts were great and a varied selection. Overall a very good meal and we were delightfully surprised. It’s in a strip mall but once you look past that, it was a very nice meal with my wife.
Excellent staff! Great food family run! Love this restaurant!
Should have known that Valentine’s Day is up there with New Year’s Eve as days you don’t go out to eat place was decorated well and servers were doing what they could but they crammed every one in to 2 person tables with at most 1 foot and change between them so you were right on top of neighboring tables and had a butt in your space every time you looked up and couldn’t leave your seat lest you be one of the butts kind of a horrible idea 💡 whom ever came up with it won’t be returning next year also set menu sucks as well as WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER THE PHONE that rang and rang and rang while we were eating turn it down or change the ringer to something less intrusive all around just bad situation to a place that regularly is great food and byob positive
That’s the Let down really
Piccollo Tratoria in Newtown is our go to restaurant for authentic Italian cuisine and great service.
