We took friends to Piccolo's for dinner last night. It was our third time there and their first. It was a big hit as our friends could not stop saying how wonderful the food is and they intend to come back and bring their friends....More

We went for dinner at piccolo one last time before heading north and was not disappointed. Our meal was great. So fresh and very tasty. We would recommend it to anyone that is looking for authentic Italian food.

Not sure what the hype is all about. This is a VERY small, loud, overcrowded and overpriced Italian restaurant. The veal Marsala had virtually NO Marsala flavor and only a few mushrooms. The portion size was good, but, the pasta and meat was swimming in...More

Had a reservation, but arrived about 10 minutes early and we were immediately seated. I won't repeat the previous comments about the size and ambiance, but recommend making a reservation since they can only seat 24 diners. Overall the food is very good. We shared...More

You may want to consider Carmello's or Italia as alternative Italian restaurants in Punta Gorda with authentic flare. Lemoncello's and Monty's are also alternatives that offer more bland family-styled Italian.
