Our server , Janet, was excellent. Pleasant and efficient. Did not mind taking time to explain the menu.
Ambience is old school Italian, not a fancy place. A lot of the customers were regulars.
Food was excellent. I had a fantastic salad with green apples and gorgonzola. Entrees were pasta with sausage. Pasta was cooked just right and the red sauce was very good.
I would come here again.
Had dinner on Valentine’s day. Food was good. Menu is short, but covers the bases and has nice variety. Well written -every entree sounds good. Wine by the glass had few, but pretty good, pricey selection. Tables in front room were so close waitstaff could not work around them. Not enough waitstaff -they seemed harried and rushed.
I've had a couple of good meals at Piccolo's so I can't say this is the norm, although it was a few years ago that I had those meals, but our Valentine's Day meals left a lot to be desired. Firstly, even though we made our appointment a week in advance we were sat right in front of the entry door, getting blasted by cold wintry air every time someone walked in. I asked to be seated anywhere else and they would not comply. Secondly, they couldn't make a Kentucky Mule at the bar, made my wife's Extra Dirty Martini straight up, and lastly never asked us if we wanted a refill. They also brought 1 glass of ice water to our table...1. I ordered the eggplant manzana. It was served as a side to pasta that had what tasted like a can of diced tomatoes posing as a marinara sauce, and there was not an ounce of extra "sauce" served on or near the eggplant. Overall it lacked any sort of seasoning. My wife ordered the pepper chicken & broccoli. This dish was definitely better but lacked enough sauce and was much more than al dente and my wife found bones in the chicken. Our server was ok, but the person who came out to grate fresh cheese had no idea what she was doing. She could barely operate the grinder, spilling loads of cheese on the floor and not even picking it up. I hate writing bad reviews, but I can say for sure that it'll be a while before we head back to Piccolo's.
The food was great as always. Tried the garlic bread and two specials along with the carpaccio. Piccolo’s is always a great value with an innovative menu.
Went with friends and had a great meal. It was a Saturday night so it was busy with high level of energy. Food was excellent.
First time visit before a show at the Hanover Theater. Read previous reviews and they were right. Every dish was well made and delicious--shrimp & salmon over linguine, veal scallopine and chicken parm-like special. House salad big enough for 4. Asparagus appetizer fresh and perfectly cooked. Our server, when asked about servings was honest that they were big and shareable--thanks for that! Good value to price and a very good wine list. Great service.
There were nine of us and everything was great!
We recently visit for New Year's Eve. It's such a busy night for restaurants, but despite the holiday, the food was great and the service was excellent. We started with bacon wrapped scallops and they were perfectly prepared. Both our entrees were excellent! No room left for dessert. Maybe next time. Would highly recommend!!
Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Piccolo's. We had patronized the restaurant a couple of times in the past and the food, service and ambiance has been wonderful each time. Our friends had never been to Piccolo's before, but loved the food and the entire experience. We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious. had the papardelle pasta with spicy sausage. outstanding red sauce and the pasta was cooked perfectly al dente. My husband had veal parmigiana. The veal was tender and the portion was large. Both meals outstanding. If you love traditional Italian food you have too try this place.
Dinner before play in Worcester, great food and service. Beyond expectations!
Was referred here and couldn’t be happier. The food was fantastic the atmosphere was great and service was Top notch.
Party of 7; all enjoyed their meals. was quiet enough to hear everyone at our table. Waitress very attentive.
The food was very good, however the service was very slow. The place wasn't packed when we arrived but by the time we left, it was hopping. Parking is extremely limited. The place has great ambience, however the biggest detractor is that the tin ceiling reflects a lot of sound. You can hear pretty such everyone's conversation even though it's difficult to have a conversation with the person across the table. Overall, I would recommend the restaurant.
Food was amazing! Disappointed with service. Took a good 10 minutes to be greeted. And another 10 minutes after that to receive our drinks. Our apps and food came out all at once.
