I have been coming here for 25 years as a result of a great owner, attentive staff, and tasty and wide variety of food. Over the years I have tried it all both Italian and Mexican and have always been pleased. For a solid, dependable and enjoyable meal - piccolos will always deliver!

This busy, crowded Italian restaurant is a neighborhood favorite, and situated right by a Regal multiplex so it's handy for after the movie dinner. I especially appreciated the half orders since I'm not a big eater. My half order of lasagna came with a good meatball. My husband got a full order of peppers and sausage, and there was enough...

Very nice selection of both Italian and Mexican cuisine. I'd never been to a restaurant with both these styles of food and I was skeptical. I've tasted both here and have been happy with whichever I'm in the mood for.

We've been going there for decades on a fairly regular basis and have always enjoyed it but recently it seems to be going downhill. Last weekend I ordered their Steak Marsala. It seems that is typically veal but they offer it with steak or chicken. Well, it might have been beef but I question calling it steak. The sauce was... More

We were 15 in a group in the back meeting area. This was one of four meetings of this group this year, I could see that all the meals were very generous. I looked at the menu on line and noticed that there was no lunch menu. As a less expensive alternative, I ordered a Chicken Parmesan half order (... More

The lasagna is delightful and they make the noodles from scratch. The Chicken Parmesan is so good. One meal could easily feed two people. But I find that I cant stop eating when I start. This is great for family friends and couples. My Husband and I do take out there and the portions are just as huge as if... More

Pretty bland AmMex offerings-Italian is better. The chips and salsa are not up to par. Wish it were better, but it has a meeting room.

We don't live in Denver so I researching online Italian restaurants in the southeast part of Denver and came up with Piccolo's passed on the online reviews. It was just an average restaurant though very busy on a Saturday night. We made reservations for 12 and our table was ready when we arrived at 5:00 pm. They seated us out... More
