Great dinner near the Radisson

We had a dance competition at the Radisson in New Hampshire last weekend. Piccola was recommended by several of the attendees that dined there last year. We went without reservations on a Saturday evening. We had a short but pleasant wait. The hostess was very nice and updated us frequently. I... read more

We were seated at a table by the window with a nice view of the sidewalk and also back into the dimly lit restaurant as the four of us enjoyed each other's company. The service was very good, along with the wine. We each ordered our meals, mine being the four cheese lasagna with some meat sauce. The melding of... More

Very nice restaurant, excellent food, nice service. The portion are generous as they should be. They have several items on the menu with veal and seafood, both recommended.

We visited Piccola Italia with our 3 kids on a Saturday night at 6:30; the place was extremely quiet. We hadn't been to this restaurant in almost a year and things have changed! First of all, it is EXTREMELY overpriced and the portion sizes are very, very small. The atmosphere is very average. Have you ever visited a lovely restaurant... More

Piccola Italia is a little, but classy and upscale Italian restaurant, located right in the center of Manchester on Elm Street. They have an extensive menu, the food is excellent, the price value is very good. A great place for couples to dine. I had a fantastic Cesar Salad that they made right at the table for me. I really... More

A beautiful early summer evening, dining outside. Nice spot. Service was very good/excellent. Menu choices were typical but good. Food was fine. In my case, the puttanesca didn't have much spice (as I would have liked) and was probably too tomato-y. That is, other flavors were overwhelmed by the heavy sauce. I have eaten here previously and had a more... More

I've heard such amazing things about this restaurant and couldn't wait to go. What a bummer. The veal piccata was missing lemon butter and capers. And flavor... The gnocchi tastes like it was simmered in Campbell's mushroom soup. I'm so disappointed. I gave them 3 stars because the server was really really nice.

Walked here from radisson. No children's menu. Lose 1 star. Had fettucini with chicken and broccoli. Good but Alfredo sauce not up to par. Granddaughter had spaghetti and meat balls. Loved it but way to much for her and can't take it home as in hotel. Need children's portions. Made bruchetta for me even though not on the menu. EXCELLENT!... More

We went here after a Monarch's game. We were seated quickly and our waitress was nice. Food was good not great. Ceasar Salad was made at the table but fair at best. Marinara sauce was ok.
