The Chilean sea bass was excellent, melt in your mouth wonderful. The stuffed squash flowers were very, very good, have never had these at a restaurant before, such a treat. Our waiter, Russell was excellent. We tried some delicious desserts recommended by our waiter. Overall, a delicious experience!

Felt very safe eating indoors at Piccolo Arancio; this is VERY IMPORTANT to me at this time. The Chilean Sea bass was wonderful! Laura is a tremendous chef on the grill - every time she has prepared my fish, it has been fabulous. Thank you, Laura!! The salad was beautifully presented and yummy. Victor prepares an unbeatable salad! The service was superb. Russel does a tremendous job serving everyone with courtesy, professionalism and style. My husband had a pasta entree and loved it. The bread was warm and yummy with the olive oil and pepper. The wines were delicious!! All in all, this restaurant is quite fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We celebrated my daughter-in-laws birthday, and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Our food was terrific, the service was fantastic and sitting in the front room, we all felt very safe. We would definitely go back to this restaurant again. A very pleasant experience.

Haven’t been to this restaurant in 20 years. The fact that they’re still in business should tell you something. Nice atmosphere and service was very good. It was the food that stood out however. Truffle fettuccine and lobster fettuccine were very flavorful. My only comment would be to have a touch more lobster in the dish. Very skimpy in that regard but the flavor was outstanding. Great date or special occasion dining.

We had a lovely night sitting at the outside dining. We felt absolutely comfortable and safe. It was our first time dining out since March.

Very professional waiter, appetizers, salad and entrees were excellent.

Never disappointed when we come here, it’s a personal favorite.

We ate outside, happy to see that they had a decent area in the parking lot tented and a bunch of tables. The food was good. If this continues they should really freshen up the outside a bit...I understand it was a quick fix, but it could be nicer. Once the sun went down swarms of mosquitoes came. It’s a whole new world now and lots to consider with outside dining. Just happy to see them surviving!!

It was SO good to be back. This is our favorite place to eat. We love Russell, our server, and the food. Always outstanding - on both fronts. For apps, we had the portobello mushroom/roasted red pepper/gorgonzola cheese, the chopped salad, and the calamari (it is the best calamari we have ever had, hands down!). For our entrees - We had the aragosta pasta and the cod. Everything was so delicious. Thank you Russell and Piccolo for another wonderful evening of dining. Like I said so good to be back!!

Our server was a new staff member and very inexperienced. Lacked the wait service that we are accustomed to at Piccolo Arancio. Rather than going to each diner and pouring oil on the bread plate (after asking if person wanted oil) she stood at table put oil on plate, and reached in front of people to place bread plate. Did same with wine. Opened bottles and reached in front of diner to get wine glass; fill it and reach back over to put near diner.
Needs much more training to meet Piccolo Arancio standards. Don't want her to wait on us again

My dinner was okay. I asked to swap out the potatoes for a green vegetable so they simply doubled the green beans that came with the cod I ordered. There was no artistic quality to the food but it was edible. My friend ordered skirt steak and could not eat it. She brought it home for her dog. Dessert was good-a chocolate lava-type item with ice cream.
