This is the first restaurant I've had table side service. Awesome Caesar salad and a great experience. I had the crab stuffed shrimp. Large servings and everything was delicious. We tried the calamari and asparagus appetizers. We had a table of 5 and everyone was satisfied. Wrapped up the meal with tiramisu. I would definitely go back!

We had perhaps the best Italian meal ever! Everything was cooked to perfection, portions were ample, and the service on a very busy night was exceptional/

My wife and I decided to try a new place in the downtown Manchester area. With lots of places to choose from, we used our OpenTable smartphone app to search and after viewing the online dinner menu, we chose Piccola Italia. Let me get the negative out of the way....it's 2014 and I really appreciate restaurants using social media and... More

Was very quaint and friendly service. We went for lunch between meetings and our service was quick and we made it back to our meetings on time and the food was delicious.

Had a wonderful lunch with a great window seat. Enjoyed the shrimp ceasar salad and the most delicious minestrone soup (made to order) had a delicious cappuccino to finish a fabulous lunch- service was just as wonderful --love this small-cozy - elegant restaurant.

If your look for good food and atmosphere than here's a great place to try. Not your fast food type of Italian but food from the old country. Tables are close together and Parkings not the best elm street is alway crowded.

Not the best place for Italian food. Nice atmosphere but very slow staff. The food was OK but definitely not worth the price.

This place is excellent. The waiter is also the owner and he is very good. The food is excellent not overly customized to commercial tastes very close to real Italian cooking in Italy. The Chef is local Boston born and raised with Italian roots. The overall experience was excellent.

We ate there on a Wednesday evening in June. The hostess was quick and pleasant, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient and very nice. We took our waitresses advice for some of our selections and the advice was excellent. The pasta special of the day was a seafood collection that was mostly lobster, with some good sized scallops...
