Good food, fair service

We were familiar with Piccolo since we frequented the restaurant in Pennington, NJ before moving to Newtown. Both locations - Pennington and Newtown - are pretty much the same story in our experience: extensive menu, consistently good Italian food, nice atmosphere, but SLOW service.

I have to say, we have frequented this place for years now and my family have never once been disappointed. The food is always fresh. Always on point. They have daily specials along with there big menu so I doubt anyone will have trouble finding something they like. Service is great. We pretty much know all the servers and all... More

Piccolo Trattoria is right around the corner from where we live, the food is always very good, with an above average decor and typically friendly service. It can get very busy on Saturday nights, as well as a little loud. The owner is typically there on weekends and very hands on and visible. Food price is moderate to high.

I've been to many Italian restaurants and this place has it all. Living in the Newtown area it's hard to find a great meal, top notch service with that extra touch. Try the Brooklyn pie. Can't say enough about Moe and his staff

They have wonderful pizza. the owners are the best!! They are there and personalize the service. All of the food is so good. If they don't have it on the menu - they will get it for you.

We recommended this restaurant to our daughter's fiance parents as they are from Chicago and needed our help in picking a place for rehearsal dinner. We have been here several times and loved it as the food is good and you got a lot of it. And that is what I told the folks. Not so much the night of... More

Traditional Italian fair, specials are tasty, staff is attentive and friendly. Great for family. friends or dates. We have also had take out and their pizza is the best... More

We have been to this place twice. The first time we went we had a very nice experience. I had the Linguini Pescatore with clams, mussels and shrimp over pasta. it was very good. The service was good as I remember as well. The only down side at that time was that it was pricy. I would have recommended it... More

We were supposed to meet another couple, but it turned out they went to a different restaurant. Even though the restaurant was busy, we were never pressured. When we finally got around to ordering, it was worth the delay. Bourbon Shrimp appetizer is excellent. 3 huge shrimp wrapped with bacon with great seasonings. The Veal Milanase was also excellent. Spaghetti... More

Went there for a birthday party. I have to say that I was impressed! The risotto was very good, and the penne was exquisite. It was very busy that night, but the wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. I will definitely go there again!
