My two friends and I were staying a night at the Farmington Inn which is right next door to the Piccolo. This restaurant offers a variety of Italian dishes. Many locals seemed to be dining at this restaurant which is always a good sign. All three of us ordered different choices and each of us very much enjoyed our salads,... More

This restaurant boasts homemade pasta in an informal family atmosphere. It did not disappoint. The menu had many diverse dishes centered around homemade pasta and fresh meat and vegetables. I ordered a chopped salad and homemade ravioli stuffed with lobster and scallops in a light lobster cream sauce. It was by far, one of the best meals I have ever... More

My husband and I met friends there last month. I had dined here years ago and hadn't been back. It is located on a very busy route 4 very close to the busy intersection of Rt 10 & Rt 4. We were delightfully pleased by the quality of the food and drinks. The overall atmosphere is bit stuffy but the... More

This is our favorite place to go for a fantastic meal with outstanding service. The food is always top notch. Our server Russell is the absolute best in the industry. He makes you feel at home and takes the stress away from your day. Worth it!

The food is always done well and they offer off menu specials every day but the menu never changes. They need to mix it up a bit.

My daughter and I visit early one evening before an anticipated arrival of a snowstorm. We enjoyed appetizers, Caesar salad and a cap tear salad both were delicious. We then ordered the ravioli all arancia. Handmade ravioli in an orange sauce that are delicious. We then shared a chocolate cake for dessert all washed down with a lovely glass of... More

Dinner was not as good as it had been in the past. My steak was fatty and hard to chew, the calamari was not crisp and the dessert which was always a family favorite, the baked fruit was not good at all. It wasn't really baked it was like fruit soup with barely any bake on top. We had also... More

Food is very good. They make menu substitutions. Waiters are great. Usually I'm very happy with dinner on-site. I sometimes get take out and usually satisfied. However, need to double check order because, occasionally, it gets mixed up.
