Decided to try a new restaurant during Worcester's restaurant week. Have always heard Piccolo's is a great Italian eatery and the menu for $25.18 looked good. We were seated in the front room in a nice booth in the corner. It was a hot and...More

Great place! We were a party of 12 people. We made a last-minute reservation and were accommodated. The food was amazing! It's not a huge restaurant and has an eclectic feel to it with some lovely artwork - it is not formal. There's 2 dining...More

We had a delicious meal of eggplant siciliano, gnocchi and salad. The waitress Janis was lovely and dealt with the crowdedness with grace. The atmosphere is homey and it got a bit loud.

We met up with our brother & sister-in-law in Worcester for our nieces' dance competition. The 8 of us went out at 5:15PM to have dinner. Everywhere we stopped was packed with 1-2 hour waits. A complete surprise at that hour. After 20 mins of...More

Out for anniversary dinner, delighted by this lively intimate Italian restaurant. The venue is small but laid out nicely for a cozy comfortable feel. The restaurant was busy when we arrived. The hostess greeted us kindly and honored our reservation on time. Wait staff is...More
