The food was delicious! The meals are large and we took some home. If we are in the area we will eat here again.
Service is friendly and efficient. Food is excellent. I like the salads and pizza.
Great food & service!
Great! Food was great, service was great, price was good.
7 Fishes were unbelievable. Super accommodating. Always a 10!
My wife and I recently went there for the first time for dinner on Saturday evening. We have tried most of the Italian restaurants in a ten mile or so radius from where we live and frequently don't return for a second visit. We will definitely return to Piccolo Trattoria and in fact, cant wait to go back. The total experience was great, from food to service to ambiance. The food was amazing and the selections impressive. It is one of the few places where I had difficulty deciding what to order, as there are numerous creative entrees and specials to chose from. Portions are on the large side and usually that means a lesser quality. That was definitely not the case here.
Excellent service great food !
Food very good service was okay excellent
Brooklyn pizza was excellent - highly recommended! The grilled octopus appetizer was also very good. Service was attentive and very good. I recommend this restaurant to lovers of Italian food.
Never had a bad meal here. The food is phenominal.
I chose Picolo Trattoria to hold a celebration dinner for my daughter. There were 13 people in our party. Our seating was very private and the service was excellent. Each guest ordered from the menu. Every entree was superb and each was more beautiful than the next. Notable choices were Chilean Seabass, Lobster Risotto, Lobster Ravioli and Shrimp Portifino.
We dine at Piccolo’s regularly and are never disappointed.
Had a great meal here. The food was delicious!
The food at Piccolo is good however, don't believe the online prices. At least some of the entre prices are $5 higher in the restaurant than the prices that are posted online.
Love piccolo first time seating inside due to the weather but probably the last. Not sound proof and with everyone talking around you the noise is so bad that you end screaming versus talking. Good quality very good as usual but your server makes a good or bad impression on your whole meal experience. Tonight Sherif was not on our side to make our evening a good one. Lack of attention to our table, details like ah sorry my family is done with salads but I haven’t got my soup ?? I would stay probably only stop a total of 3 time from taking appetizers then entree then dessert orders oh of course to bring the check. Would have given 15 % but did 18% since we were 5 adults a 6 years old. Usually do 20 to 30% for good service
Will remember for next time make sure I have a different server
Outstanding food; a real discovery. We are recommending it to everyone we know.
Wonderful meal. Great outdoor patio setting.
Terrific dinner outside on the patio.
We ordered the Chicken franchaise and plain pizza. Sat outside at night which was so nice and seemed ‘cozy’. our server (Chris) and the rest of the staff was super nice. Great experience.
Food was "over the top." We got two fish selections. Wow!
What a surprise! What appeared to be a pizza joint in a strip mall had a more upscale restaurant attached to it. BYO. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. Some very unique options on the menu. We had a pasta dish with tangerines, figs and scallops that was incredible. Everthing was great. I would definitely recommend.
Worst and most bizarre experience ever. We were long-time loyal customers, but never again. We had a 6:30pm reservation for 4. We showed up at 6:30pm. We were told, quite rudely, that they would not seat us- they were too busy. We understood that they were busy and might not have been able to seat us right away, but they weren't offering that - they were just turning us away, even with a reservation. There was a table for 4 available. We asked about that table. They said that they are saving it for a 6:45pm reservation. The manager Dell could not have been more rude. When we persisted on asking how it was they wouldn't seat us especially with a table open and us having a reservation, he screamed my wife and threatened to call the cops if we didn't leave the restaurant. We left to never return again.
Great experience. Food and service were excellent.
Overall excellent. However, asked for separate checks and Server just split the check. Perhaps, Server misunderstood what we meant by separate checks. Other than this the restaurant is excellent.
The setting was lovely, the service was gracious, and the food was scrumptious. We had excellent salads. I went back to celebrate my birthday a couple of weeks later and made sure to have pasta so that I would have a different experience. All was xcellent that day as well.
Committed waiter staff; very good menu and food; tables situated with adequate space between them. Fairly comfortable seating. Outdoor dining on a concrete foundation with a view of the parking lot and power lines.
Food was excellent. Service started out just ok but ended up atrocious. Never saw the waitress after taking our order and it’s all we could do to flag her down for the check m. After being notified that lobster was not available as part of the lobster risotto, still got charged the same price for risotto w/o lobster. Won’t be back.
Everything was great! We have a wonderful meal and a great time over all.
Service was the best.
Very friendly place, we had fast service at lunch and the food was good
We have gotten delivery from here since April 2020. Today we met our daughter and boyfriend fir dinner. Nice table outdoor with Sarah as our server. My spouse had the zucchini flower appetizer and I had the burratta mozzarella
His zucchini was very good my burrata salad was a disappointment. Had the seafood bisque good flavor but sent it back to get reheated I guess microwave since it was cold. My carbonara pasta was very good and my spouse lasagna as well. Overall not a bad experience or meal just disappointed with seafood bisque and the burrata salad.
Will return to get parpandelle bolognese.
Food wasn’t up to part
Solid Italian dishes, great pizza, fabulous staff, comfortable outdoor patio weather permitting. I have been eating here for years and highly recommend this restaurant for dine in and take out. I have also used them for catered events many times.
Recently had the meatball parm sandwich for the first time (can't believe this menu item escaped me for years), it was excellent, will put it in my rotation.
Piccolo continues to amaze us with their spectacular food. We love the outdoor setting also. We went with a group of 4 and literally everything we ate was delicious.
No one in our party of six described their meal as “delicious.” OK was as high as anyone went. One $40 steak was actually inedible due to extreme oversalting. Bread was good, everyone liked the calamari. My salmon was way over cooked, but the veggies served with it were great. Maybe because it was on a Tuesday the regular chef was off?
Prices are mysteriously high, as this level of food can be found locally at half a dozen places for much less. The service was very good.
After we finished our lunch, we just sat and chatted for another hour. it was so nice and no one bothered us for the table. They were not very busy.
Always delicious and service is excellent.
We received immediate and courteous attention. Food was really good and affordable.
Went because heard they had great food. Food was outstanding
The food and service was excellent very enjoyable sitting outside I just wish the fountain was turned on. We had a very nice dinner and conversation and will be going back soon.
The food here was really good! We ate outside. The appetizer on the special menu of the day was made from the zucchini flower. It was fabulous! We will definitely go back on our next trip to the area.
Nothing fancy, just consistently good food, good size portions, and reasonable prices. Great go-to place!
