Piccolo Nido was a fun place to dine on a Saturday night. There are dozens of small restaurants in the North End, and we'd seen lines of people waiting for tables outside them. We were thrilled to find a small, family owned, Zagat rated place that accepted reservations, and our table by the front window was waiting for us. The menu is not huge, but the kitchen was very flexible about subbing or re-combining, and the homemade pasta is delicious. Recommended: the veal chop. The weekend before the Super Bowl, football was in the air, and the owner was stopping by tables to chat about the game. The small foyer is decorated with photos of him and Boston celebs, including, of course sports figures. Celebrating a birthday? The owner will sing along with a recording of Happy Birthday in Italian. White table linens are deceiving- informal and fun.
