Reminds me of a neighborhood Italian eatery from back east..

I was not looking for fine dining. By that I mean I didn't want fancy just good. By the reviews I read this met the criteria. This place is in an old fast food place. Not large but nice it pulls it off good. Seated myself right away and got served quickly. The service was very good. The food... read more

This is a small, casual hometown restaurant that serves very delicious meals. I've had salads, typical Italian fare, seafood, and steak--all prepared perfectly!

Terrible service, enormous menu, cooks that are not trained. no matter what you order it tastes the same. Although they describe a multitude of sauces, there are really only two - canned tomato sauce and creamy sauce. Cheap but even then it's a waste of money

Had dinner here with friends while visiting the city. The food is quite good but the place looks like a former fast food restaurant from the outside and inside. We had lasagna and eggplant Parmesan and both were very good. They were moving people through quickly so we didn't feel comfortable sitting and relaxing over our meal. The decor was... More

My wife and I moved to Santa Fe last year, and had been looking for a good Italian restaurant for our weekly weekend "date night". There are definitely great, higher priced Italian restaurants (with smaller portions, I might add) in Santa Fe, but Piccolino is the type of neighborhood, family place that we like. Friendly staff, excellent food, fair prices,... More

We stopped to visit family in Santa Fe as we are traveling west.They introduced us to Piccolinos for lunch together. Out outs a small quaint Italian restaurant that serves delicious food. The bread we had as we waited for our food was very tasty. Our servings were quite generous and delicious. We will remember this place for future visits.

I had a craving for some pasta with a simple red sauce. Everything on the menu with red sauce has meat. The waitress said all of their red sauces had meat. I asked the waitress for something vegetarian (could not find anything on the menu). No separate section on the menu for vegetarian items. The waitress said the vegetable &... More

I went here with some of my friends for lunch. Our server was very quick and very patient with us. I had the penne rigatti, (spinach, mushrooms and dried tomatoes), very good and plentiful, I had enough for a light dinner later on. Everyone said they enjoyed their meals. All the meals looked huge, some like me took their extra... More

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
