Reservations through open table, same day. Great experience. Seated immediately . Well made cocktails. Adventurous tasty appetizer of portobello mushrooms,layered with red pepper, onion, goat cheese. Delicious bread, but olive oil dip was bland. Just cracked peppers, no herbs. Varied mean for all palates, willing to switch and modify. I had rack of lamb. Six ribs, cooked to perfect temperature,... More

I've dined here several times now. The atmosphere is wonderful, but service and food are inconsistent. The seafood risotto just didn't have enough seafood in it. Portions have gotten smaller. Waitstaff try hard, but have gotten our orders wrong on more than 2 occasions. I don't think we'll be going back again.

I have dined at Piccolo's on a number of occasions over the years and have always had very good service and consistently good and well prepared food. Their pasta dishes are always good and I have tried many dishes on ther menu including salmon, steak, and swordfish and have always been pleased with my meal.

I've been here twice and have had good experiences both times. Took my parents for their anniversary and they liked it.

We had a nice dinner here with another couple before we headed out for vacation. The restaurant had a pleasing atmosphere and the staff was fairly attentive. We started with salad and my Caesar salad was very good. My wife's arugula salad was just average. next I had the leg of lamb which was very tender and very tasty. My... More

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
