    Went back to give Piccolo another try and unfortunately left displeased. The servers have a rushed manner when attempting to collect the entire order having only been seated for 5 minutes, and pestered us about drinks as we were settling in. Moreover, they failed to inform me they were out of the specific vintage of the bottle I ordered and proceeded to pour a different year without presenting the wine. The manager Manuel, who was very kind about the situation, made up for the hiccup on the back-end of our meal. Despite the above, Linguini Mare E Motni did not miss and the burrata appetizer was great to open with.

    Absolutely perfection! We started with the grilled calamari appetizer, then I had the gnocchi Bolognese, while my spouse enjoyed the lamp chops. Our waiter, Ivan, was attentive and gracious. He even arranged a spontaneous wine tasting to assist us in choosing a wine that complimented our dinners. And speaking of wines, many of the premiere Italian wineries are represented on the wine list. A delightful evening with wonderful, delicious food.

    Bland, dull, teeeny tiny wine pours…ordered the $39 filet truffle in medium, it comes out (maybe 4 ounces) well done with zero taste of truffle. Super boring and dry mashed potatoes and bland boring carrots. My wine pour was laughable at $16 a glass-literally 3 ounces. Had to call them out on that and then the server poured a generous ounce… Seriously?! Shame because the wine was good but I wasn’t going to pay for another glass. We also ordered a gnocchi-not great, no flavor, my daughter had the orchiette, also bland, my sons Pici pasta tasted of olive oil. At the very least they could offer chili flakes and parm but nope. Service was entitled. This place sucks!!!

    I and a friend went recently on a Monday. It was my fourth visit and it was the best experience so far. The three courses we shared were sublime. The Insalata Riccia was beautifully crisp, fresh and tangy with blue cheese. The Linguini di Mare with shrimp and porcini was a revelation since normally one doesn’t expect mushrooms in a tomato sauce seafood dish. Finally the Filet Medallions with a red wine truffle sauce were so moist and flavorful. Bravo!!

    This was my 2nd time eating at Piccolo Venice, both times were for weekend brunch. Both times the food and service have been excellent. Our waiter this past weekend had a great disposition and good sense of humor - we had 2 bottles of wine and they did not have our first choice of either but he was quick to make suggestions and offered us a replacement for the red at the same price as our original choice, even though it was higher priced on the menu. Food was amazing - everybody loved.

Lovely waiter, super attentive, delicious mains- both pastas for me and my hubby- as well as beer and wine. Good prices and all round great experience, will return soon!

    Piccolo is great. It's delicious, approachable, and not absurdly overpriced - which is a rarity these days. I've tried over 80% of the items on the menu over the course of repeat visits, and the food is consistently excellent. I wish there were more wines by the glass and that the pours were a little more generous, but that's my only criticism.

    I haven’t been here since they moved from Rose. I forgot how charming and hospitable the hosts are here. It really makes such a difference. Excellent wine was suggested and the food was amazing. We were offered indoor or out and we chose inside. The decor, vibe and music is just perfect. I will be back again very soon!!

    The food was absolutely delicious. We tried four of the antipasto dishes (the jamon, burrata and pears, and the crostino, were divine), as well of five of the pasta dishes. The tortelli were decadent, the gnocchetti and tagliatelle al ragu had wonderful meat sauces and the sausage in the orecchiette really stood out. All of us in our party of 7 really enjoyed the meal. Our waiter was great and service was fine with one exception - the table servers were very brusque. When our pasta came out one server was holding 6 plates and I'm sure they were heavy but he was too loud calling out dishes and a little aggressive dropping plates in front of us. Clearing the dishes could also use a little defter touch. But overall I'd definitely recommend Piccolo.
