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.

My husband and I went for Valentine's dinner last night. We started with caesar salads, very good, perfectly dressed, which was accompanied by some nice warm rolls. Dinner came just as we were finishing, so the timing was perfect. He had the Chicken Lorena, and I had the Chicken Piccata. Both served nice and hot, and both dishes were absolutely... More

This restaurant came recommended and we were not disappointed. We even returned a second time for another outstanding dinner. Service is a bit slow if you are in a hurry but if you are there to relax after a day of work. The restaurant has outdoor seating which seemed to serviced less frequently but the great food made up for... More

My wife and I sort of stumbled on Piccola after a meeting in downtown Manchester. We enjoyed the experience enough to return with friends. The food was very good, portions hearty, and service terrific. I am always impressed when the wait staff can take an order for a table of four without writing anything down and get it all correct....

I have been here twice in the short time I have lived in Manchester and it a nice place to eat a good Italian meal. It is not the best I have ever had, but it is good. Large portions. I have enjoyed the veal parm and the tortelloni on my visits.

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!
