We were happy to be able to dine out on the Fourth of July. The food is always special; you won’t have those everyday Italian menu items. The menu, while temporarily limited, has homemade pasta with great accompanying sauces in the dishes. Nice chunky tomato sauce and velvety cream sauces.

In these trying times, we had comfort food combined with a good wine and what we believe to be homemade limoncello. Service by Jordan was attentive.

Please do visit here to enjoy a great meal and to support your local restaurant with its great staff.

Great dinner. Sat outside next to building. Great service. Food was served promptly but not rushed. I had the chicken parmigiana, the biggest piece of chicken ever but not too thin. My husband had a haddock with crabmeat and spinach over linguine...delicious.
Overall a great dinner and enjoyed sitting at a real table outside during this COVID time.

Ample seating, food was a little above average but very overpriced. Was excited to be out for one of the first times and hope to advise staff to keep their face coverings on at all time while serving customers or in vicinity. This would make people feel more safe.

Everything was fantastic, only issue we had was a group of college students who were smoking weed at a table and there were children close by.

Owner and staff should have spoke up.

We're so glad we used an OpenTable reservation. It was a last-minute pick; Piccolo's was VERY busy, with extremely limited parking, but we were seated immediately.
The restaurant is old school Italian, and was crowded and noisy, but actually just the sort of place we needed.
The service was friendly and prompt, and the food was awesome.
We would definitely go again.

Having heard so much about this restaurant- all positive - I was disappointed in the food. It was very average .... I ordered what was close to chicken parmigiana and got a giant slab of chicken (not impressed w/large servings a la chain restaurants) with gemilli and sauce which though homemade were just so so. Fried calamari app again very average. Dessert course good - we shared a lemon mascarpone tart. Service was great and the ambiance very North End Boston but as a day visitor to Worcester looking for a great meal overall it was a letdown...

This was our first time dining at Piccolo's. We were greeted promptly and seated within a few minutes of our reservation. Our server was quick to greet us and our food was really good arriving quickly. My husband and I both had pasta. The food was served hot with generous portions. My margarita did not disappoint!
However, the restaurant was very noisy and the tables were within inches of one another, not a romantic atmosphere for Valentine's Day!

Staff is very friendly from the moment you walk in the door until you leave. Our server Amanda was awesome! The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Such a great evening. If you do not like close tables then maybe it's not for you but we loved it. Can't wait to go back, we will be regulars.

The restaurant is old world Italian in décor and rather noisy. Our server was very attentive but the kitchen appeared slow. Food was decent but lacked any type of wow. Overall decent for a night with the kids but not sure if we would return again.

My family and I really enjoy this restaurant. The food it’s always good. It’s served hot and it’s fresh. They could do better with their wine list, in my opinion.
I’ve been there for date night, larger family gatherings and meeting friends after work for dinner. It can get super busy but tonight it was not and we had practically the entire place to ourselves until we were there for about an hour. The servers are attentive, but not overly so, and friendly. Tonight’s experience did not disappoint.

Best Italian food on Shrewsbury St. Great service is a constant here. Quality of food and portions are well worth the it.
Breadsticks and ravioli appetizers were great. I had the twin medallion filet entree which is yo die for . Girlfriend loves the chicken parmigiana. Sauce is on point
