Outstanding authentic Italian food....service was very efficient and friendly. The martini they made for me was one of the best I've tasted in years! Clams in white wine sauce is my 'go to dish' and I was really impressed with their dish. My wife was equally impressed with the veal dish that she had. Parking is always going to be... More

Go to Piccolos about 3x a month for business(?) meetings. Food is outstanding!. Some of my favs include any entree with Haddock, every appetizer, and a Veal Parm the size of Rhode Island.

Scheduled on OpenTable very last minute prior to the Garth Brooks concert Sat night. Surprisingly authentic Italian cuisine! Even my Italian food snob hubby was impressed. The appetizer of flatbread was phenomenal, hot and fresh. Our entrees were outstanding - though we felt very rushed eating them- it's not a place to hurry through your meal as everything is literally... More

This was our first time here, and Piccolo's deserves a 3.5 rating, but we just couldn't make it a 4. It was a busy Saturday night, though we were seated very close to our reservation time. Bread and oil arrived promptly though neither was particularly good. The waiter did not ask if we wanted water, but we did flag him... More

I went on Friday, 01/08, at 18:00. I sat at the bar that had 3 people drinking and 1 couple dining. The bar was staffed by 2 women. I selected a special, Pappardelle Bolognese, which was very bland tasting. It had none of the flavors, or depth of flavors, of a long cooked sauce (ragu). My next disappointment was in... More

The restaurant has two seating areas. The first is the bar area that also has table and chairs. The second area is a separate room with just tables and chairs for dinner. We got seated in the room with the bar and it was noisy, hard to hear. If you park at the Remax just down the street you can... More

Piccolo's describes itself as fine Italian dining. We would agree with that description except for the decor. The food and service were very good, but the atmosphere was out of date and semi depressing. I'm giving it 4 stars because the service was warm, efficient and properly paced. However, at almost $100 for two of us, we expected a nicer... More

Platepeddler Dis-Approved This restaurant is in the heart of the Italian section on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. Has a nice Decor in side with traditional italian music playing. Place has a strong aroma of gade cheese. Service was very good, rest is downhill... Two of us , ordered Salad, beverage, and entree. Entrees were the suggestion of waitress, not good!... More
