Piccolo Buco Roma - set mere steps from Rome's famed Trevi Fountain - is where Cooper's Hawk Founder, Tim McEnery, first discovered Chef Luca Issa and his wonderful pizza. The ingredients were deceptively simple: creamy, indulgent mozzarella mingled with a bright and bold tomato sauce. But it was the extraordinary, tall crust - crisp on the outside yet cloud-like at the center - that won his heart. He couldn't wait to introduce America to a pizza this special!

    Great menu. always great quality and service. the Pizzas, chopped salad and blossoms app are always a hit. Only item i did not enjoy a few visits ago was the eggplant parmesan. It was REAALLLLLLY SALTY. Could not finish it. Otherwise, all other visits were top of the line. Many Thanks!....

    We have been to this establishment three or four times. It was good, but it wasn't great. The server was doing the best she could, but there were not enough servers for people in the restaurant. We had a group of 7 and we all knew what we wanted. There was ALOT of lag time between ordering, drinks, food arrival etc. We got our whole meal except one pizza and were almost done and got another pizza. We ordered three affogatos. Didn't realize they were previously taken off the menu. The waitress did her best to accommodate, but they all came out on one plate with little sides of espresso. Not really the same and was difficult to share with three people.

    The food was good. This was our second time here, the first being right after they first opened and I don’t think it was as good as the first time. Service was a bit odd… My daughter asked for bread and was told that they now charge for bread.. the table next to us asked their server and he told them they normally charge but he would see what he could do and brought out a plate of bread for them. Not a big deal but consistency would be nice. Also $5 for an iced tea or a soft drink is insane. My son asked for a cup so he could take the rest of his coke home and the server told him they “don’t do that”, so do they not allow drinks to be ordered for to go orders? It was just an all around weird experience. I think we will just stick to their sister restaurants instead going forward…

    Great pizzas for sure. Right out of Rome, Italy. Went to the pizza place in Rome when we visited. Glad we can get it here now. True Neapolitan pizza!!!! Cacio e pepe pasta is also wonderful. Glad Coopers hawk gave this to us.

    I couldn’t be happier with our experience here. Logan was our server and was absolutely phenomenal. He knew every single aspect of the menu front and back including every drink. I don’t care if there’s a 30 minute wait next time I come in I will wait for Logan to take care of me. Amber, the manager went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. She came by the table, introduced herself, and spoke with my mother about Mother’s Day. She is class personified, and my mom cannot stop talking about how professional everybody was. This is the type of customer service we need and this is why I will always come back to Piccolo Buco.

    I love their pizza and we had a very nice mother's day lunch. I thought it was odd that the waiter didn't wish me happy Mother's Day (I was there w/ my boys and husband) and I also thought the salad (which I've had before and loved), was lacking salt and/or vinegar. Still very enjoyable, the waiter was pleasant enough and the pizzas were amazing.

    Fabulous food, questionable service. Bartender was rude. Waited too long for water and drinks at the table. Asked for Parmesan & red pepper for our pizza. Never got it, had to get up and ask someone else. Bill mix up. And no one offered to buy us a round of drinks or a dessert for all of the mixups, confusion, etc.

    Their menu is unique with the variation of pizzas offered. Yummy! Three were tried! The pasta dishes offered will fit anyone's fancy. We were there for lunch and their patio is cozy. Inside is also very inviting. We would highly recommend this fine Cooper's Hawk off spring to anyone! Wait staff was informative and courteous. We were sitting under a speaker and whereas the music being played was excellent it was a little loud to talk over. We let the server/hostess know and they turned it to a nice decibel.

    We go to Piccolo Buco often. The food is always excellent. While my wife and I both go for the pizzas, I have also had some of their pasta dishes and those are excellent as well. We both always enjoy our evenings there. A special shout out to our server, Logan, who really makes the evenings even more fun. He has been our guy for a number of our visits. He is always attentive, prompt, and has an outstanding personality. It is nice when you go and you have positive engagement with your server, and Logan provides that. We look forward to our next evening at Piccolo Buco.

    We frequent this restaurant often. The food is usually delicious. We tried the Pappardelle this time and it was very salty. The rest of our food choices were amazing as always. The service tends to be slow each time we go. This time took 15 mins for us to be greeted and another 20 to get our drinks.
