Good Italian Food

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!

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.

Piccolo Trattoria is conveniently located with plenty of parking. We go there for lunch and dinner, as a couple and with family for special occasions. The meals are consistently good and we really enjoy the bring-your-own wine option. Our kids know that giving us a gift card to Piccolo Trattoria is a favorite gift.

Piccolo is one of the best places to eat in Newtown. Great menu and great service. The owner goes out of his way to greet the guests and remembers everyone... They have so many choices in selection. Great pizza and pasta. Only a few of their pastas are homemade. Their dessert selection is amazing. We have had a few bad... More

I have dined here in the past, and have done take-out. The food is always fresh,hot and the portions are above average. More importantly. the order was ready for pickup exactly at the time that was indicated on the phone. Very good Italian food for a neighborhood place.

My daughter chose Piccolo's to celebrate her birthday and begrudgingly (due to two previously disappointing meals), we went for dinner. I chose a salad which was served with the lettuce soaked in water. My daughter felt ill after eating one of her cheese raviolis, my husband's artichoke salad had one quartered jarred artichoke in it. Fresh was not the main... More

There were five adult family members in our party. We enjoyed a shared antipasto appetizer--very fresh and very tasty. Each one enjoyed a different entree, and all were delicious. Unfortunately, our timing did not allow us to try desserts, but we'll be back another time for sure!

Can't believe this restaurant was around for 15 years and we missed out on such great food for so long. Last night I decided to use my $20 gift card I got with BirthdayPak. Our server Greg was very knowledgeable and helpful and his infectious enthusiasm led us to order the top two expensive items on the menu. (note the... More

We truly enjoyed the food at this restaurant when there for New Year's Eve. The one thing that we would recommend is better training for all as to what "gluten-free" means. My husband Joe ordered a gluten-free chicken parm (which means grilled not breaded) with gluten-free pasta. The dish came with the standard breaded chicken, because he didn't specify grilled....
