I expected more because we sure paid for it

Tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from a local and TA reviews. Not impressed! although the couple that owns the restaurant were working as our servers, our group of four felt like we were getting a little bit of a South Beach style hustle throughout the meal.

We spent a long, lovely evening with old friends in this delightful "local" restaurant. The complimentary appetizers and drinks were first rate; the bread warm and delicious, and we each enjoyed our generous shrimp, veal and zuppa de pesce entrees under the care of the most delightful owner. We were the last to leave, but were never rushed and were... More

Small friendly restaurant that means to please, great food, great attitude. Lets you know they appreciate your business and patronage. We eat there regularly because there food is fresh any great and we don't have to put up with the typical "Boca" restaurant attitude of "Snow Bird" preferential treatment. We eat out in Boca "All year round"

Based on favorable Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to meet "old" friends here for dinner. We immediately felt welcomed by the friendly owner and helpful waitress. The service was superb and the food delicious. We enjoyed several "specials" including the Eggplant Rollatini appetizer, Veal Parmesan and Filet of Sole Francaise. Veal Marsala was also tasty and well-prepared. Although the dessert... More

We dined with another couple and had a fun experience! You have to love the owner when he asks you when you are seated if you want sparkling water, bottled water, or "Boca's Finest"!!! A fun way to start your dinner! They started with a complimentary fried zucchini appetizer and a bread basket, which was a nice touch. The four... More

A friend introduced me to this wonderful restaurant during a previous visit. We went there again on this trip and will plan to make this a stop whenever visiting in the Boca Raton area. Excellent service, great atmosphere and terrific food!!! The owner even offered to make a veal parmigiano which wasn't on the menu but remembered I ordered in... More

I spend a lot of time in Italy and am always afraid to eat an Italian meal in the United States. Most Italian restaurants fail to deliver. But I have to admit, Piccolino will be one of my local Italian staples when I get the Italian urge in the United States. Daniele and I went to this restaurant based on... More

If you were driving by without having read the Trip Advisor reviews, you'd never see it. Piccolino's street presence is understated, the entrance is easily missed, and there are only about 8-10 tables in the entire restaurant. But once you enter, the dining experience begins. We were shown to our table, and from the get-go the service was perfect ...... More

The best veal parm I have ever had. Personal service by the owners was first class. They treated our party like we were weekly customers. the portions were enormous. Can't wait to go bak.
