Best Restaurant in Hartford County

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.

Osso Buco was stringy and also covered w/ watery veggies. Rice was no better then from a box. Penne pasta w/ veal sounded good but... More

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.

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
