The food was delicious, but we found it extremely noisy, probably in part due to the tin ceilings. However, the cocktails were lacking, and pricey for the size (pretty small)....would stick to wine here.

Love Italian food and first time here. All of us enjoyed our meals, large portions and finished every bite! Great homemade bread, wine and dessert, awesome service. Definitely going back. Had Cheese Ravioli with Marinara, my go-to, and best around!

My fav Italian restaurant in Worcester County. Great vibe, especially if you are seated in the lounge area. NEVER had a bad meal here!! Owner is always on the floor interacting with guests.

We were seated in a small booth by the window in the bar area so I can’t comment on the main restaurant area as we didn’t see it. The bar was cute and the booth by the window for two was comfortable. The place looked pretty old school and you’d expect Italian music coming over the sound system but it was actually 90’s alternative. We found it amusing since it didn’t match the surroundings but since we like that sound we enjoyed it. Food was standard Italian fare. Well prepared and fresh tasting. Prices were reasonable. The chicken parm was huge! Nothing fancy but we would go again. Bear in mind there is no parking lot. On street parking only. Easier to find a spot on the other side of the street.

Two of the three meals we ordered were drowning in heavy buttery sauce that spoiled the dish. The wine list is seriously overpriced and ill-chosen.

The restaurant says that it is wheelchair accessible, and that is true of the bar, but not the restaurant. The staff were very helpful in getting our elderly guest up the few stairs into the restaurant, but clients should be aware of this issue.

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.

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.
