So this was The Last Supper for a group of girlfriends who usually dine out 4-5 times per week. It was the final day restaurants were open and since it was a Monday, many of our favorites were closed. We opted for something new and were not disappointed. We got a beautiful bottle of wine, fantastic eggplant rollitini and artichokes to share, and then everyone enjoyed the entrees tremendously. We’re just so sorry we can’t add this to our regular circuit right now but will definitely take advantage of the meals to go!

The place is nice and the service was excellent. My wife ordered a pork dish and I ordered a free range chicken dish. The food was just okay for me. The chicken was not great and my wife did not care for her pork dish. This place serves liquor and has a decent wine list. There are so many great-restaurants in the area. This one is not great and probably won’t go back.

Early Valentines dinner.
First time at this restaurant. We were very pleased with everything. Our table was near the entrance, and was a little drafty. But other than that the evening was perfect. Great and professional service with excellent food. We will be back!

Food was very tasty and slightly different from typical Italian-American fare. Appetizer of mussels was prepared Belgian style, with seasoned fries to dip in the delicious broth. Service provider by our waiter, Christian, was excellent.

What a fabulous find! My friend and I dined at your lovely restaurant this week and had such a wonderful dining experience. The meals were phenomenal -- all homemade pastas, fresh veggies, extraordinary flavors; it was obvious someone took great care to create a fabulous meal. The dessert was just OK (chocolate cake) but perhaps we'll choose another next time around. Would recommend and we will return!

A perfect dining experience. Absolutely delicious dinner, excellent service. Great wine list. We would all highly recommend this restaurant and will be back. Mixing creative spins on classic Italian dishes with well-prepared American options, the menu is broad enough to please all. Pasta (rigatoni) was homemade and al dente. Our waiter offered great advice on preparations and was attentive but not intrusive. We highly recommend Piccola Italia

I would say this was the best tasting meal my wife and I have had for many years. Not just tasting but presentation as well for my duck breast and wife's ravioli dish. The chef/owner is truly amazing and his wife/maitre d was very friendly and informative. Although we live in the DC area we will certainly ensure we make it back to Piccola in NJ many times over the next few years.
