We ate here because it was next-door to the hotel where we were staying in Farmington, but we'd go back again because the food was so good, the people were so nice, and the atmosphere was so friendly. Our bartender, Cindy, couldn't have been nicer, giving us tips for our trip through the area, and introducing us to the people... More

Went here with my family for dinner. Restaurant was fairly empty, we had a reservation and the sat us in the middle room that was completely empty and had no windows. The food was very average for the cost. Not sure where all the high ratings come from. I assume it is due to the fact that there is not... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends this past weekend. The wine list is good and the food tasty. The service was very good, our waiter went out of his way to make sure our experience was pleasurable.

The food is good. My Pizza on my first order was a little dry and crunchy but the pasta on the second order was delicious. The staff was courteous and very professional.

Two couples enjoying a relaxing lunch. Service good, an extensive wine list, tasty meals. More than we could eat - so some for later. We had some pizzas and the ravioli alla arancia - sauce good, pasta OK. Asparagus pizza was best.

We were talking about places to go for our annual Valentine's Day dinner and Piccolo Arancio came to mind. We had not been to this restaurant in a very long time. No special reason why because we did always love our experience eating here. It turned out to be just as good as it ever was. I had the special... More

Excellent food. Consider the Specials Menu first. Excellent pasta, seafood or meat; the specials will have something tasty. The specials menu will also include some great wine by the glass; had an outstanding Malbec last night in a very full $8 glass which lasted through my entire meal. I can walk to this restaurant from my home so it is... More
