Italian
Piccola Trattoria is an authentic Italian restaurant, with the charm and comfort of a real Italian Trattoria.
Piccola Trattoria’s seasonal menu features an array of homemade pastas such as cannelloni, gnocchi and pappardelle. Come warm up with melt-in-your-mouth Bistecca, Boulliobese di Pesce or Branzino.
Piccola Trattoria’s cozy atmosphere is perfect for date night or to relax with good friends and a glass of vino.
"For the love of cooking"
A dinner at Piccola Trattoria is meant to re-create the warmth of meals enjoyed by Mr. Pennacchio’s family.
Chef Sergio Pennacchio, transformed the single dining room of 38 seats into a roomy, elegant-rustic space. Like the friendly and knowledgeable service, the ingredients are first-rate.
Chef Sergio Pennacchio changes the menu often, sometimes twice a week.
It's not northern or southern; it's Italian all over!

The Staff could not have been nicer and accommodating.

The menu is extensive but yet limited. I'm not sure if they would make anything not on the menu but I would like to know that.

The Pasta is outstanding and my Salmon was delicious.

The deserts, homemade, were outstanding and delicious as well.

All in all, I don't believe you would be disappointed in making reservations and enjoying an evening at Piccolo's.

Thank you Piccolo for a lovely evening.

My pasta was excellent but fellow diners with fowl or flesh were not as pleased. Appetizers excellent and well imagined. Cocktails unfortunately were not prepared by a pro. Fun outing all in all and server and owner were present and delightful.

Most amazing Italian restaurant I’ve been to in a very very long time. Felt like I was at a family members house for an amazing meal. I cannot say enough about how warm and welcoming this place is not to mention the delicious food. I will definitely be returning.

Food was fresh, delicious and wonderfully prepared. Tried to go there several times but table was never available. Finally, got to go there on Saturday night and it did not disappoint.
Our server couldn't be nicer. It was her birthday that night and we got to share in the celebration for her!
Make a reservation and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

We absolutely LOVE coming here. The restaurant is very intimate and the perfect spot for a date night out or a particular celebration. We have been coming here for about 3 years now and are never disappointed. The food itself is always cooked to perfection, the desserts are to die for as well.

This was an anniversary dinner. Service was professional, courteous, attentive and thorough.
Food is outstanding - bouillabaisse and veal chop were outstanding - cooked perfectly and seasoned wonderfully.
Lava cake desert with melted white chocolate and ice cream topped off the meal.
You will be very satisfied.
Enjoy!

Service and food were great. Very attentive server, and the food was delicious w/ unique and creative preparations.
The meals are consistently very good, can always expect that you'll be treated well and to a special dinner.
However, the downside is that the space is very small and a bit crowded when all seats are filled. The space is rustic and quirky - which when one is paying for an upscale dinner, the comfort level could be improved.

It feels like you are eating the homemade dishes of a terrific Italian cook. Portions are huge so think of sharing. Not your typical Italian restaurant. Prices are reasonable, the room cozy and the chef comes out to greet each table. Go.

After few recommendation from friends I decided to try this place.
I am very glad I did food was phenomenal felt like my grandmother was cooking and a Chef was putting the plate together. The wine list was very interesting and will add large for a small place.The service was great and fast.
The place is very cozy perfect for a date or catch up with a friend.
The owner and Chef Sergio Come out few times and we got the opportunity to meet him (nice guys with big smile)
And look like he knew everyone at the tables.
Definitely will go back

Overall it was just OK. The service was excellent. However Both my wife’s and my own dishes were overcooked and dried out.

The meatball appetizer was very good. I don’t think I would go back since there are many better choices

We loved our experience. Our food was beautifully prepared (we had a range including meat, fish and pasta) and the chef was very accommodating of our request for one modification. And the staff couldn’t have been nicer. The place, as per its namesake, is small, so be sure to make reservations!
