Glad I didn't send a review after the first visit

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... read more

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 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!

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!
