This restaurant is unusual in its setup, as it used to be a fast food place. The lack of a proper hostess stand makes you unsure of what to do when you walk in on a busy evening. After hearing a lot about this place I finally gave it a try. What a let down! The atmosphere was stuffy and... More

A friend took me to dinner at this quaint traditional Italian restaurant...hopefully I will have the opportunity to return. Service was good and quick. Our salads were huge. I had the eggplant parmesan hoagie and it was delicious, served on focaccia bread and over drenched in sauce. Their meat lasagna looked delicious also. Definitely recommend for good food at a...

Pretty good place to eat. Simple, fairly inexpensive and some interesting specials. You CAN eat healthily here, but why? The pizza is good!

My family and I were visiting NM and really wanted to eat somewhere we've never been. We decided on this little Italian restaurant and we were in love. The flavors were amazing and the service was good. Portions were also decent size. If you're looking for a good Italian place in Santa Fe this is the place to go

Piccolino's has become our routine Friday evening. The food is delicious and the service attentive. Don't be deterred by the crowd waiting to get in, the line moves fast. For a real New Mexican taste experience, try the Lasagna Boloco. The restaurant even has a drive through for speedier in and out experience.

This out of the way, but accessible restaurant is a favorite. Today I had the arrabiata spicy sauce with penne and added mushrooms. My friend has a spinich mushroom garlic sauce pasta. Both came to the table steaming from the kitchen which is a welcome change from many restaurants with inattentive waiters bringing just warm dishes to the table. Both... More

We've enjoyed visiting Santa Fe many times over the last 25 years or so, and it's always an enjoyable trip. We love New Mexican cuisine, but one can only eat it so much and it seems to be getting harder to find a place that's not swamped with tourists, with food catering to the more timid palate. So, one evening,... More

This out of the tourist path Italian restaurant always is able to serve tasty dishes hot out of the kitchen. In an unassuming former Pizza Hut building the staff provides great and dependable food.

Judging by some of the other reviews, it looks like it can be a hit or miss experience. About 90%+ of the times we have been there, it is a good experience. The food has always been very good, but it's the service staff that is the questionable part. They must be training the young people who work there because... More
