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.

The food was excellent and I like the relaxed ambience of the restaurant. It was nice and quiet because they weren't very busy which could be because it was the night after Valentine's Day. The staff is friendly and the service is good. Even the chef came out to say hello. I do think the pricing is on the high side but it is a very small restaurant with very few tables so maybe that is the reason why. It was my second time there and I would go back again.

Loved sitting at the bar and meeting, Peter, the owner. It was Valentine’s Day and though we had a table chose the small bar setting. Food was excellent- Bronzino, pasta and wine. Enjoy!

Food was delicious. Service is superb. But something always seems to be a little off. They served us a cappuccino with curdled milk this time. Also, the owner is very casual-too much so. Friendly and warm is what he should be going for. But the food is first rate.
