    Decor and ambiance was dull and dreary. Server wasn’t that great. Removed side plates while we were still using them. Barely came to the table. Food was ok. Calamari was very over cooked and portion pretty small. The ziti that went with the chicken parm looked like it was old. My lobster ravioli was good, but basic. We chose here based on reviews (wanted to try something new) but we will never return.

    Party time at Piccolo Arancio! 5 people that loved the authenticity of this fine restaurant. One the Five was from California and a first generation Italian immigrant! He thought it reminded him of his Grandmother’s cooking! It was a wonderful experience for all 5 of us. Perfect from appetizer through dessert! Starting with the zucchini blossoms to the gnocchi and through the cheese plate and the baked berries with zabaglione !! Don’t miss this experience!

    Piccolo lives up to its standards as always! Actually, our batch of calamari tonight was one of our best! We love the crew, and always love seeing Jackie and the kids. But really, dad comes for the veal chops! This is our “home away from home”. And our go-to when we want to go out!

    My husband and I visited last night for the first time. Pros: The menu was extensive enough for many tasty options yet small enough to know the food was made to order. I ordered the homemade Farfalle pasta with chicken, spinach and wild mushrooms. It was phenomenal! The pasta was cooked to perfection and you could tell it was homemade. It was also the perfect mount of food. My husband ordered the homemade lobster and scallop ravioli. Both of us thought it was “okay”. It needed more of a “saucy” flavor, not that it was bland, but only one flavor really stuck out and it was the seafood (not necessarily a bad thing). My husband said he could have easily eaten a couple more and it was not enough food for him. For the price, I thought the portions were great (not too pricy, but still on the higher end). They also have a pretty big wine list, which is always a plus. Lastly, the service was top-notch!!! Cons: The ambiance…..drab, dark, closed-in, outdated. Also, I’ve always been turned off by carpet in a restaurant. The (one) window that we were lucky enough to be seated next to let in some much needed natural light, but the dust, old and dark curtain shade was about 3/4 of the way drawn closed. The lighting was extremely dark. Wallpaper, carpet and upholstery were all very outdated and dark. Lastly, the complimentary bread was very dry (even with the olive oil), stale and not appetizing at all. Overall, I really enjoyed dining here, especially with the excellent service. I will be back to try some of the other dishes!

    We had a guest with us and she loved this restaurant as much as we do! The food, service, ambiance play into it all. If you want it all, you should try Piccolo Arancio! Ask for Russell or Seth for servers. Try their ravioli signature dish, get the chocolate bread pudding desert… all winners!
