First time here-we have found an Italian spot that is worthy of the cuisine. Fresh, serious, but not pretentious, genuine and friendly but not in your face. We had the pasta Sicilian and a bottle of Brunello. Delicious. We could close our eyes and find ourselves back in Rome. We also had the house made cheese cake, just the right texture and sweetness. We will be back.

This was our first time here and the food was quite good. However, it is not an inexpensive Italian restaurant and personally, I prefer a more professional staff when going to a nice restaurant. The owner was sitting at a table on the phone when we walked in and didn’t immediately get off and get up. It was a bit of s poor first impression.

Owner was warm and friendly, met his parents sitting next to us at the bar, and their friend the chef who used to run the kitchen in the Washington DC Italian Embassy. Lovely meal,, nice bottle of Chianti, a friendly family ambiance in an charming, unexpected locale.

Just a spectacular place for dinner, Piccolos has it all; great food, great service, a vibrant setting and a clientele that just seems to be made for each other, you could sit at a table with any of them and have a wonderful evening.

Piccolo is one of our favorite restaurants with the comfort of a neighborhood place and an interesting and varied menu of high quality Italian food. The menus change often and the chef makes imaginative use of fresh ingredients. The desserts are homemade and scrumptious.

Room has poor acoustics and is deafeningly loud (except at the bar). Food is mediocre at best and considering the price is a really poor value.

The restaurant is aptly call Picollo as it is very small, you are sitting on top of each other. The food is OK but very pricey for what you get. The noise level is very high when the restaurant is full.

A gem of a find on a get away weekend. Piccolo is a quaint restaurant with welcoming service and an ever changing menu. The food was excellent! From the appetizers to the finishing deserts, everything was prepared beautifully.

Pricing can be on the high end and the wine list is limited but this is a cant miss restaurant when in the area.

My shrimp sat in a stick of melted butter- bread was garlic with butter- toasted- probably day old. The cheesecake was outstanding- perfectly flavored and textured. Was disappointed as our first visit there ... the food was wonderful

If you are looking for excellent and authentic Italian food (not the cliche, stereotypical stuff), then Piccolo will not disappoint.
Their ingredients are fresh and flavorful. The food is elegant and plentiful.
Peter, the owner, is friendly and gracious. He and the staff pay great attention to detail and to the customers.
