15 years ago the Piccola Trattoria name was introduced to the Santa Clarita Valley.

The same delicious simple food that tastes as good as you remember from your last visit to Italy. The menu is an expression of our most cherished Italian dishes, ranging from fresh pastas, handmade raviolis, and pizza, and incorporating all the freshest local produce, seafood, and meat available. A vast wine list highlighting our collection of the best wine regions in Italy to compliment your dining experience. Our staff is passionate about bringing you Italian hospitality in a warm atmosphere that hopes to remind you of an intimate family dinner. We look forward to welcoming you into Piccola Trattoria!

The customer service from the bartender was exceptional. He really understands flavors and how they mix and we let him surprise us and the alcohol and mock-tails were great. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the Cabernet chocolate cake with espresso buttercream was so delicious
