Piccolo's is an old fashioned Italian restaurant where they make the pasta by hand. It's not a fancy place, but the food is always great. Portions are large and home made sauces are wonderful. the only drawback is service can be very slow at times....More

Heard raves reviews about Piccolo's and finally tried it. The atmosphere is nice, small but not cramped. The food lived up to expectations. I had the Ravioli Ricardo and was very impressed. The service could have been better.
