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

Stopped into this restaurant unexpectedly and were happy we did. We were welcomed and seated at a small table in the corner which allowed us a quiet spot to enjoy our dinner and enjoy it we did. My husband had rack of lamb with potato and spinach and I had their homemade ravioli with a tomato orange sauce which was... More

Piccolo Arancio has a sister establishment in Hartford called Peppercorns which is excellent so we decided to try Piccolo Arancio because it was conveniently located for our guests. We were very disappointed. The atmosphere was very loud making conversation at a table for four difficult. The physical plant looked tired. The waiter can be best described as having little class...
