    Service, venue was all great, but there was only one standout dish (muscles) of three that I tried. The calamari was actually burn, definitely tasted charred.

    Waited outside for 20min after our reservation, even though we were on time. Sat a walk up couple in front of us before us because the hostess knew them. Seating was a bit crammed. Food was very good and service was acceptable as well. It seemed like all the waiters and servers were way over worked and short staffed.

    The food at Piccolo Venice is exceptional. The pici pasta dishes are extraordinary. Service on Valentines Day was very good considering the extra tables and large crowd. Eliminating the piped in music would have been appreciated because the noise level with so many people was very loud and the music made it worse.

    We had the duck ragu, the salmon, and the beet salad. All very tasty and well-prepared. The Brunello (by the glass) was excellent. The room is great. Lively but not loud. And the service was exceptional.

    The food is always terrific. Had the always excellent and flavorful sea bream crudo paired with a fantastic Prosecco recommended by our server. Followed that with lamb and pasta and a great Italian red again recommended by our server. Always excellent. Only complaint would be the odd choice of music played rather loudly. Khalid and Bieber and similar music was really odd for the room and clientele.

    I wanted to tell this experience about a reservation my Fiancé and I had on 2/2. We had a reservation for 6:45 and showed up a little earlier, we were seated and everything including the service was phenomenal up until the very end. We had finished eating at 7:30, just 45 minutes after our reservation started. A server that wasn’t our original server saw we were done eating, grabbed our plates and put down the check. We paid and got the check back. We were sitting with the check for a minute to finish up our conversation, and a random server came up to us and said “are you done? We’re going to move you to the bar.” We asked why and he said “we have another reservation and need this table so we will move you to the bar.” Our server was PHENOMENAL. However, that was not the best way to end the dinner especially because we had a reservation and the other server was forcing us to move when we didn’t even sit at the table for an hour.

    Of note, their pasta is made from Italian flour. As someone who is gluten sensitive, but not celiac, I gave it a try. This is based on my experiences that European wheat is better tolerated by me than American wheat. Nice surprise-no discomfort after the meal! We were there on a Sunday afternoon, so. Not crowded. Very nice service and we enjoyed our lunch experience very much!

    We grabbed a last-minute reservation only earlier in the day to celebrate a birthday early while traveling. Warm greeting, good table, prompt and attentive service. Wine was excellent (a Nebbiolo) and paired nicely with the meals. Tried the fig pasta and tagliatelle to start, the steak to share, and then the Italian cheesecake. Everything was delicious!

    We were looking for a restaurant close to a theatre that we were attending that evening and Piccolo fit the bill. We arrived at 5:00 PM when it opened for dinner and were shown to an indoor table in the corner which the hostess referred to as her "favorite" table. We ordered the bread basket and two pasta dishes: the pasta with pancetta and orrecchiete with sausage and rapini. Both were excellent. We shared the cream dessert which was also very good. Since we were there early it was very quiet and we could actually have a conversation. The service was excellent. It was pricey but that seems to be the norm these days. Would definitely return. Parking was easier than expected on such a busy street. A whole street full of parking meters around the corner.
