If you want the things you use to get in the north, this is the place to go. Great cold cuts, canned goods, REAL bread, and sandwiches to die for (they even have Manhattan Special soda !). A bit pricey, but it's the real deal.

This is a place where to eat truly Italian good food! Sicilian pizza is a must! I love the sandwiches also. I usually stop by to get my favorite meal at all: Stuffed veal cannelloni pasta!

The sandwiches were great. They were huge and filled with meat.The place is fun because they are also an Italian Deli. Next time I am going to order the spaghetti and meatballs. There were several people eating that and they looked real happy.

Discovered Piccolo's on Trip Advisor because it had great reviews which are all well deserved. We were visiting from Toronto and I think we went here 4 times! The Frank Sinatra is a must as it everything else. Can't wait to go back next year.

Dropped by for a quick lunch while driving through the neighborhood, found Piccolo's and had a great lunch sandwich. Loads of choices made making up my mind difficult but the combination of sopresatta, prosciutto, gardinieri and mozzarella made the choice easier. Great sandwich, will be...More

Went with Italian friends who were impressed walking in the door with the smell! Food is cooked to order, nice and fresh, just expect a little wait. Certainly worth the wait.
