We lived in Paris for 3 years and yes, restaurant food is consistently fabulous. The meal we just had at Piccolo Ristorante ranked right up there with some of the best we've in both France and Italy. My meal was Pere Salad (arugula, pear, pecans, brie) and Ragu del Giorno (bolognese) that was awesome. Perfect in every way. My wife... More

We were excited to visit Piccolo once again while in Florida! Although we loved it previously, we feel that it continues to get even more delicious! The whole dining atmosphere is delightful. Piccolo serves food that is imaginative and creatively prepared. I chose a wonderful ragu and my husband enjoyed an excellent fish dish.

Amatriciana rotini was goodly spiced and al dente; the house meatball superb; the funghi risotto was superb and the recommended wine was a great pairing. Lots of service yet... More

Very rarely do my wife and I find a restaurant that we want to go back to monthly. Piccolo Ristorante is a dining experience that you must try. Everything from fantastic appetizers to innovative main courses to amazing desserts, all paired perfectly with wine recommendations. At our last visit, we even went as far as just telling Alison to surprise... More

We had a great time - we brought two pastors and their spouses, and all 6 of us had a great table, food, wine and convo. We appreciated the VIP kindness from the owner's brother (?) and our server (his wife?). They even lowered the A/C for us. We will be back!!
