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.
Good food good service as always!
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.
Nothing special expensive and lackluster wouldn’t return
Very high quality food would highly recommend need reservations. Small quaint place. Best cheesecake!
Excellent food and service. A bit pricey. I would also like to see at least 1 vegetarian option on the menu.
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.
This is the best place! A atmosphere is laid back and friendly - food sophisticated and delectable. Menu changes weekly and I have never had something I didn’t love. So charming and the staff is amazing!
A reunion with a favorite childhood cousin was made even more special at Piccolo. Thank you Peter and Chef Aldo for a wonderful meal and great conversation.
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.
food was decent but nothing special and the bills was outrageous
for 2 people: salad, main course, dessert, each had 2 glasses of wine - $221.00!!!!!
Its been a while since I went but was reminded how good the food was. Will go back again.
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.
"The best veal in the city" - The meal and service were fantastic!
This restaurant is for those who want a tiny but elegant space with a changing menu that uses seasonal and carefully chosen ingredients , artfully prepared.
The food at Piccolo is fantastic!!!! The food is gourmet without being fussy - brilliant chef. We look forward to returning and introducing our new fund to friends.
The service is friendly and gracious.
very authentic, pleasant and individualized attention!
Great place and Italian food. Owner very friendly and accommodating. Heartily recommend any occasion.
We enjoyed Father's Day at Piccolo! The entire meal was excellent, especially the veal. So tender! The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The chef is excellent.
Great experience all around. Ordered the crab cake, orecchiette, and the farfalle bolognese and all were delish!
Warm and genial owner and chef. Excellent and attentive service. Deliciously prepared dishes served to perfection. Very small place but free parking and good sized tables. Pricey. We’ll be back soon.
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
Food is always exceptional. Peter is the perfect host. Looking forward to our next visit,
Excellent, as always. The menu is always changing, which is great. Amazing small restaurant. Very personal service.
Amazing lasagna and cheesecake. Would go back for these dishes.
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.
Food was delicious, restaurant was quite small and intimate..the owner was warm and friendly and the service was great, I would definitely go back, the bread was awesome!
Phenomenal food and amazing service!! I could eat here everyday
Outstanding food. Great service. A charming spot. Peter and Linda are wonderful. A most enjoyable experience. We look forward to returning frequently.
We finally found our new favorite restaurant. Everything was wonderful. Thank you to Peter & Chef Aldo for making our dinner one of the best we have ever had! We will be back again & again!
The owner was incredibly rude and the service was awful it took forever to get seated get a menu and get our food
Always a solid experience
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!
The food is very good though overpriced. The atmosphere is forgettable as was the service.
The whole experience was wonderful, start to finish.
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.
Great food, great ambiance and great service as always!!!!!
Food and service is always wonderful. Veal parmigiana was the best ever! Can’t wait to return
