They were out of oysters and the appetizers, seafood combo and artichoke hearts were only ok. Entrees, a pasta dish and rack of lamb were good as was the bread. We enjoyed a bottle of the Barolo wine which was a featured special, Cannoli dessert was good. It wasn't great but not to bad and right by the hotel; Farmington... More

Wish I never dined here. My husband and I are from out of town and found this restaurant using tripadvisor/zagats. After reading the reviews below, we decided to dine here. What a mistake, I wish I could give this place no stars. We order a few items. First, the bruschetta which came as two slices of ROCK hard bread, soggy... More

I went with my boss for a casual dinner. My boss tried a shrimps risotto and I tried the spinach, risotto ravioli. Portions were apt (neither small nor large). The food tasted awesome. We both finished every grain on our plate. I also tried the tiramisu and a glass of wine. Average bill was $50 per head. Will go again... More

We generally choose whatever the fish special is. It's always delicious. Most recently had the blackened cod - I don't think I've ever had better. It was served with sauteed vegetables and a potato pancake. Yum. The staff is always professional, friendly and attentive, yet never hovering.

We sat at the bar as the service at this restaurant has always been very slow, but the home made pasta was wonderful. Served al dente and with wonderful sauces.

We have been patronizing Piccolo Arancio for many years. The quality of the food and the service have always been exceptional. The waitstaff has many years of service and is fully conversant with the menu. I have never been disappointed.

The meals at Piccolo Arancio are always enjoyable and the service is great. This is a go-to restaurant for a meal that is always above average. Although the basic menu does not change often, the specials do and they are special.

I eat here every time I'm in town (several times during my trip generally and order room service from them as I generally stay in the hotel next door). I have never had anything that wasn't just amazing. I am always stuffed but then make myself even more miserable because I just don't have the willpower to not have some... More

This restaurant prepares everything from scratch we were informed. The service is superb. The food is delicious. It is a bit pricey but definitely worth the cost. I always pick this restaurant when someone else is paying. You will not be disappointed.

I was meeting with an old friend in Farmington, she suggested Piccolo Arancio and I'm glad she did. It was mid-week, and a 6PM agreed time for after work; we were seated immediately. The menu was extensive; I could have easily chosen any of a dozen offerings (and this is ~1/3 of their total menu offering, between appetizers, main course... More
