I always feel at home at this place. The menu is familiar, the meals are well-portioned, and the staff is friendly and helpful. This is not an adventure in fine dining, but it's close to home and totally reliable for home-cooked comfort food. Plus, parking is easy.

A friend had recommended Piccolino's for good fried seafood. We tried it out. My husband had an italian dish which was very mediocre. I had fried clams and although this was the recommended meal, it was not up to my expectations. We will try it again some day and see if we just hit a bad night in the food... More

Visting with family in Shirley, they suggested we all get take-out from Piccolino's. All 5 orders came exactly as ordered. You'd think that would be a given, but it's amazing how many places don't know how to make a sub sandwich without mayo when requested. They do something different with their subs, instead of rolling them in paper, they are... More

This place was recommended by the locals, so we gave it a try and they were on point with their Chowder! The Seafood Chowder is one of the best I have eaten and what makes it different is the sauce not being thick and creamy. Lots of seafood and few potatoes served with butter, bread and oyster crackers. I recommend... More

I've been going to "The Pic" for 10 years now. I have NEVER HAD a bad meal there! Their burgers and fries, are always spot on. Surf and turf meals are cooked to your liking. Their pub style pizzas are excellent too! Friendly waitstaff and quick service. What more do you want?!?

Super friendly, hometown atmosphere. I had the "Seafood Bake" - chocked full of scallops and shrimp with haddock and crumbs. My "sides" - onion rings and tangy cole slaw - were both home made and both delicious. And for dessert: a wonderful hot berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream. If I had this meal in a fancy gourmet restaurant and... More

Great local bar & grill. Always run into someone we know. Menu has a good selection of entrees, sandwiches, pizzas, and daily specials. The sea food chowder appitizer is loaded. I have it every time we go there. My wife' s favorite is the 6 once sirloin steak with awesome onion rings. I try everything. I had a small steak... More

Some people love their thin crust you-can-fold-it-in-half pizza. Others come in for the drinks and chatting and other snack food. There are also good sandwiches and even fish and steak options. If you live in Shirley, you are sure to see someone else you know.

Lunch at this place rocks! You'd think by the look of things its a local bar, but that is not all, its a bar, Keno, a scratch ticket machine, TVs on all the sports channels. That however is just the bar side, the restaurant side, is just that a nice homey restaurant. My favorite is the Chicken Parm and the... More

Took my Daughter here for a quick bit to eat. Located on a side road. It seems like a local pub for the town. It has 2 sides to it. Bar and restaurant. The table I sat at wasn't wiped down and it was dark. The waitress was pleasant. I ordered a steak sandwich and my Daughter ordered a Reuben... More
