My family of four tried this restaurant using a Group for 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts. If I hadn't gotten the food for about half price, I'd have scored it lower. The calamari was freshly breaded and lightly fried, but the calamari must have been previously frozen and lacked flavor. The bruschetta was basic and good. The chicken... More

I order from here all the time. The food is always delicious and delivered in a timely manner. The chicken wings are nice and plump and delicious. Also the Mediterranean salads and the subs are always tasty.

The customer service was rude and disrespectful when the guy took my order over the phone. The delivery driver never brought the food to the door...I had to go to him. The mozzarella sticks were soggy and barely warm, Thee steak and cheese sub was soggy with grease and had very little flavor, and the turkey and cheese was the... More

Most people think of this as a pizza and sub shop, but it has a small and casual restaurant attached that is highly underrated. The food is good and plentiful, as well as reasonably priced. The one downside is that you have to plan to be there for awhile, since service has always been very slow. This restaurant is within... More

Stopped in on a Sunday evening for a late night dinner. Order a calzone, Italian sub and steak salad. All the portions are large and reasonably priced -calzone $8.95' sub $6.50 and steak salad $8.95. The best deal was PBR draft pints $1.50. Service was good the food good not great but what do you expect for the money?

While waiting for someone nearby, I went into Piccola's and ordered a slice of sausage Pizza. When I tried it, Piccola's became my favorite Pizza place. The best pizza I have had in Richmond. Thin sliced sausage, not crumbled. Read the other reviews. but for pizza, give it a try.

If you are situated on a college campus and want your business model to be pizza, subs, and affordable beer, that is a pretty tried and true formula. Just don’t pretend to be anything more than that. In the heart of Virginia Commonwealth University, Piccola’s is also conveniently located to pick up dinner before a show at the Landmark Theater,... More

There was a lot of teenagers here who were very loud. The food was average to below average. I would not waste my time.

We love returning to our daughter's favorite restaurant in Richmond. Whether just a few of us or a large party, everyone comes away well nourished and with a smile on their face. The pizza and pasta is superb and they have a nice variety of ales. The prices are reasonable. the facility is clean with the exception of the men's... More

I cannot miss Piccola during my visits to Richmond, VA. My favorite are the egg plant subs and pizzas. They make my mouth water. They have take outs, sit in and self serve sit it. Their pastas, spaggehti. lasagna and other dishes are good too but for me no match with eggplant dishes. They do have a small bar and... More
