Our first time. We had a wonderful meal. The food was excellent and our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly with perfect timing. We were neither rushed or left waiting. All together a perfect dining experience for my wife and me.

We absolutely love Piccolo’s! The food is incredible and the service is fantastic! We love the small Italian restaurant feel there as well! The food isn’t cheap, but it is fresh and really great! I’ve paid plenty for food that isn’t good, so I never mind spending on a dinner that’s worth it! Piccolo’s is highly recommended!

We were looking for a last minute venue to accommodate a larger party of 8. Our choices were limited and no one had visited this place before. Several times during dinner I kept getting great feedback on the choice.

Food, portions and service were excellent. The only downgrade was the volume of the dining room. I attribute that to the acoustics of the room. It’s not like everyone was screaming but sound did resonate.

Great experience and all in the party complemented this place. We will all be back for sure. Putting it on the list.

We went to Piccolo's on Mother's Day 2021. It was easy to make a reservation on Open Table. Parking was on the street, but plenty of spots available. Stagg was extremely friendly and the service was amazing. Food was incredible. We all (6) had a different meal and everyone was happy with their meal.

Very good food but very expensive. 3 people, one 96 years old, shouldn’t cost $140+ with only 2 drinks.

This is one of my favorite Worcester Italian restaurants. The meal we had Saturday night was excellent as always. I had a shrimp and chicken with pappardelle special while my partner had the grilled salmon. I have to offer kudos on their bread too. It was so fresh.

It was going great until they seated a party of 15 people next to us. (yes 15!) when because of Covid, the current active law says max of 6 people per table. We were not happy.

My husband and I try to get to Piccolos as often as we can. This time we brought out 10yr old son. He's a good eater but questions everything.... some opinions are not the kindest. He absolutely loved his meal.... He had a Peanut butter reeses cake for dessert. We all tried it.... absolutely outstanding. We had a great family dinner. Our wait staff Janice was the greatest. She was attentive and informative. We love Pics....
