This was my second visit to this restaurant and I have found the food and service very consistent. I had the special chicken marsala for lunch, which came with a bow tie pasta. The chicken was just a little dry, but the sauce made up for the dryness. The pasta was nicely cooked and was quite yummy. We have found... More

I ended up here on the suggestion of my co-worker, it was relatively close to the hotel and when I checked tripadvisor the reviews seemed decent. What a mistake. The waiter was nice enough, and honestly, I think that is why I went with 3 stars here. I ordered a 1/2 carafe of chianti. Now, I know not to expect... More

We had read great reviews about Piccolo's but were a bit turned-off when we saw it was located in a strip mall. However, when we went inside, it was very cozy and intimate. Service was fantastic, Miguel took good care of us. Delicious food, delicious wine. We would recommend for a nice night out and would return.

Service was very bad. Waiter confused about wine and messed a lot of things up but joked on all the tables about it being his first night. The food was tasteless and overpriced. They had ok cracked pepper or fresh Parmesan (I even have that at home) provided with a powdered cheese with a spoon- classy. The house wine is... More

Visited last night with our family before heading back to Middle East. Atmosphere was nice and the service was very good. I wish I could say the same for the food. We tried a shrimp dish and escargot for appetizers and shrimp over cooked and escargot mediocre. Main, again mediocre. Seems like a hot spot for locals and so I... More

Had a party of eight and found the service to be slow and the food only very average. As my wife and i were a little early we sat at the bar and had a drink (we were the only one at the bar). The bartender made no attempt at conversation and made a very poor pour. The service was... More

Once inside, you forget that you are in a strip Mall in Arlington Texas. We were greeted by Antonio from South of Florence. I mentioned that my father and Grandparents are from Siracusa Sicily. We had a 30-45 minute wait and sat in the bar area which was quaint, busy ( as the restaurant was packed) and had a couple... More

Consistency, this is what they do better than anything else. We had dinner here again last night and my husband had our all time favorite entree Spinach Ravioli. I ordered the broiled salmon, which was perfectly cooked and served with the most wonderful little potatoes and a nice sized serving of broccoli. The wait staff has had very little turnover... More
