Decent food, indifferent service

Full range of Italian choices fill the extensive menu for this BYOB restaurant in a strip mall. Gluten free pizza was good. We had margarita. Nice salads. Gluten free pasta is also available. They made gluten free veal piccata for us, though it was bland. Good fresh mozzarella on salads. Reasonable... read more

Very disappointed! First let me start by asking you to see my other very fair reviews. This place has zero respect for groups that make a reservation. We had an 8pm reservation and as I sit here at 9:00pm they have yet to seat us! We were told 20 minutes. 30 minutes. And, after and hour no seat. As much... More

We live locally and don't go out for Italian food very often but when we do, Piccolo is a great option for us. The menu is solid, they offer a kids menu and they are willing to customize if we desire (which we often do!) Tara was our waitress this last visit and she was beyond excellent. Ask for her!

Their Chicken Frangeilca was one of the most delicious meals I've ever tasted. Tender chicken in a creamy Frangelica sauce with mushrooms. Out of this world. The Homemade Gnocchi were light and airy. The warm bread served before dinner was crispy on the outside and soft and light inside. The Salad that came with the meal was fresh and large.We'll... More

This place has everything. The pizza is the best especially the Brooklyn Pie. The entrees are all good. Very different Italian food, Not your basic. Be careful for the specials, can be pricey. But always good.

Our family occasionally gets take out from Piccolo - for more that 10 years. Our last experience, pizza and an eggplant entrée were not up to previous standards. Yes, they are busy on Friday and Saturday nights for takeout, but this was the first time we were really disappointed, and not "just" satisfied like our previous meal.

We do pizza Fridays and we rotate between our favorite pizza places each week. This is definitely one of our faves (as well as everyone else in Newtown), and the Brooklyn pizza is GREAT. My only complaint is that the wait is always long when you come to pick up your pizza. They know they are going to be busy... More

We stopped in for dinner last night, 12/20/2015 and ate with our young girls on the to-go side of the restaurant. The food was extremely good and tasty, however things were screwed up from the start! Couldn't get a cup of water for the girls and when they finally brought it out the girl asked if we wanted water in... More

We often frequent this restaurant. The chef is very good with fish dishes. We love their pizza and the other dishes are favorites as well. My son-in-law and husband love the carbonara and my daughter likes the chicken dishes, especially the one with figs. It's a byob. Staff is very friendly.
