We arrived at the adjacent hotel, the Farmington Inn, after a two hour drive and wanted a special lunch to begin our two-day sneak-away. All the pasta is homemade. I had a dish that was a little disappointing, but my husband's ravioli was exquisite. It was very thin and tender, filled with homemade cheese and spinach and was served with... More

In the busiest intersection of Farmington you may find this oasis of Italian cuisine. Extended menu of pastas, brick oven pizza, “botanas”, steaks and tapas accompanied with a more than average wine selection. A little on the pricy side but the environment, food quality and personal service will make you come back for another special occasion.

Seafood ricotta with gluten free pasta nice dish. Food hot and served as ordered. Great parking and good convenient location. Ask for gluten free freshly baked dinner rolls. Great mojito.

Very nice place with many excellent offerings on the menu, but the lobster ravioli is a must. The multi room setup for the restaurant keeps the noise down and creates a nice feel. Also large separate room for the bar adds to the effect.

The restaurant is next door to the Farmington Inn. The food was very good and the service was great. The atmosphere was relaxed and quiet because the tables aren't on top of one another. If I had one complaint it's that the portions are very big which is great if you live nearby.

This is a family-run Italian café, nice quiet and classy appearance and very convenient location. Fresh bread and soup were superb, but the Risotto DeGiorno was very ordinary, like I would get at Olive Garden. Seafood was tasty but sparse for a $24 entrée. Service was pleasant but a visitor could tell the local wait staff loves their regulars and... More

Girls weekend away-made res for Sat. night. Nothing to dislike. Pretty décor, the hostess showed us to a table, but we asked if we could sit in the smaller room & was nicely accommodated. Waiter very knowledgeable; narrowed down my wine choice & went with his recommendation a Barolo.1 person slightly picky eater who doesn't like fish. Her filet mignon... More

Went here for a business dinner with a group on a night when all sane people were hunkered down at home. Despite the nasty weather outside, the staff was warm and welcoming. I'm sure they wanted to leave but they never rushed us and were very attentive. Portions were generous and the food was delicious. I don't live in CT... More

Piccolo Arancio ALWAYS serves good food. The Staff is the best. One of the hallmarks of Piccolo's is their willingness to provide whatever changes you would like. Very flexible.
