Food was pricy for lunch.
Service was good and cute place with nice outside dining.
Beware to those who enjoy the experience of eating out. As another customer recently stated on a review site, we have never had to leave a restaurant without being served. No more than 5 mins after being seated we asked to order an appetizer and were told no, unless we were ready to place our entire course. Of course, I immediately felt rushed since this only means the food was being delivered without pause to push through customers. When I asked to speak to the manager/owner he stood by this policy and explained it was a busy night and stated our table had 1.5 hours. Since I am not one to enjoy a hurried expensive meal out - even though we most certainly would not have taken longer than our allotted time - I calmly explained this to the manager. He said okay and that we could leave, and so we did, only 10 mins after being seated.
As a side note to the manager/owner, please wear your face mask over your nose, too. While we will not be back, others deserve a safe environment while dining.
Outdoors in the rain under a tent with live music. Fantastic!
Very good food and service, but expensive for what it is.
Great outdoor situation given the pandemic. Definitely would go back.
Great food! The lobster ravioli is amazing!
Good food! Excellent service!
Great appetizers. Salmon was good, steak was tough, branzino was dry, but service was attentive and very nice outdoor patio.
Whether it’s a special or off the regular menu, the food is always so well prepared and delicious. Lovely outdoor patio setting. One of our favorites.
Large outdoor dining area. Friendly staff. Excellent menu.
They try hard but food is overpriced and just ok. Chicken parm $25???? Come on!!!!
Amazing!!! Delicious food, great service, beautiful ambiance.
Very nice dining
Burger was great
Service was excellent
Great place to celebrate with friends
My mother and I dined out on a Thursday night. There was plenty of outdoor seating and all staff were wearing masks and gloves. Restaurant is BYO which is a plus. Food was excellent. Will return soon.
It was the first outdoor dining experience since covid. I would have liked paper or plastic cups but everything else was very good. Service was lovely
Delicious Father’s Day evening menu with wonderful staff and safe distancing.
Father’s Day.. was fantastic
This was our first dinner out after quarantine. We had a great time - the food and service was wonderful and the outdoor patio is delightful.
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The food was Delicious. Will definitely go back !!! The service was great. Thank you
We loved this place. Tried it on a whim. The food was excellent and the portions were much larger than anticipated. We will definitely be back!
Great food, treated like family, with reservation never have to wait. Had their Linguine with white clam entree and it was one of the best I’ve had anywhere.
The food was great and the waitress was nice but not the greatest., we had to ask for bread. We asked to bring the salad and appetizer at different times and they brought them together. When they wrapped up our food to go they put both meals in one container in lieu of one bag
We love everything about Piccolo Restaurant, beautiful atmosphere , cozy, service, food is outstanding, parking is next to the restaurant. We will comeback with our friends next time!
Not so great but hey it’s NJ not going to get much. The fish was literally dipped in margarine and the pasta (penne vodka) was more like a Trader Joe’s microwaveable bag. Service was ehhh you would imagine the waiters cleaning the table at least and giving new plates. I’m sure ppl love this place and I wish it well. I’m not a returning customer however.
Had the homemade pappardelle in a braised lamb ragu with ricotta and was delicious! Very quaint restaurant run by the nicest owners!
Burrata appetizer was amazing , veal parm excellent. The seafood and pappardelle special unfortunately had all ends of broccoli rabe , but seafood was good . Service started out great and then it went downhill. Waiter never checked on how our dinner was, water glasses empty a while... never asked for desert . Had to flag down the hostess for our check... cramped tables.
We return over and over again-the service is always impeccable, and the owner goes out of her way to greet us. They are very sensitive to my food allergies and make sure that what I order is acceptable. Cant wait to go back soon!
Great spot for dinner with friends. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. Our waiter, Marco was exceptional. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Marco made the evening fun and enjoyable. We look forward to going back again soon.
Great place with very nice atmosphere. Food is consistently good. The owner and staff are very friendly and attentive. Prices are ‘ok’ but I guess standard for dining in Ridgewood.
Great as always. Had the eggplant rollatini, beet salad and lamb with parpadelle. Everything was perfect. What a gem.
A fantastic evening with friends that was equally matched by the food and service offered by the Piccolo staff. We look forward to coming back in the summer to eat or their patio.
Christmas Eve Dinner- Was OK. Nothing fantastic. $14 lobster bisque with hardly any lobster. Linguini with lobster tail and mussels was ok but wasn’t crazy about it. They told kids they had chicken nuggets but they were cutlet strips so my kids freaked out.
Ambiance was great, service was attentive, and we loved the fact that it’s BOYB. The appetizers were tasty, but the majority of our main course dishes (in a group of five) were underwhelming— especially for the price of a NYC restaurant. For example, the risotto was undercooked and the guest who ordered it felt uncomfortable afterwards, and the meat—based pasta dish was bland
Wouldn’t recommend based on our experience.
The food was fresh and amazing and our server was great. Reservation was easy and I would definitely go back.
My dish was a little too salty for my taste
I had the sole stuffed with crab meat. I didn’t care for the 2 potato croquettes that were in my plate
Hands down the best restaurant in Ridgewood. The food never disappoints and the specials are always unique, abundant, and delicious. The restaurant’s quiet location set in from the street always makes you feel like you just discovered it, and the atmosphere and staff inside always make a casual Friday night dinner feel like a special occasion.
Second time at this restaurant and would recommend it. It is pricier than it needs to be I think though. I had a pasta special w/ shrimp and sausage; didn't ask the price b/c how much can pasta be? It was $37, which I thought was way too much. It was good though. Veal chop was also pricey and was tough. But the ambiance is nice and service is very good. I'd go back, but I don't really think it's a good value proposition. There are definitely less expensive items, but lots of the main dishes, maybe most, are in the $30s and the salads are pricey also.
Food was delicious. Service was outstanding.
Thank you for making my anniversary special.
