“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My wife and I went to Picollo's on a week day when we thought it would not be too busy, but the small restaurant was nearly full! Good sign! We had eaten here once before for a wedding rehearsal and thoroughly enjoyed the food. And this time the food was delicious, but we waited 1.25 hours for it to arrive! Great food. Slow service. Nuff said.

“A Hockey Dad Trip”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I was recently in Windsor for my daughter's game. I didn't have a lot of time and the front desk at my hotel recommended this restaurant.

I went at 6:30 on a Saturday night and they fit me in. The meal was very good and the caesar salad was excellent.

A warm, friendly, genuine place.

“new favorite in Windsor”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Windsor has a number if good Italian restaurants in the area, this one should rank highly
Visited Tuesday night and had the veal parm with pasta, veal was nicely done and the pasta was spiced just right.
The serving was large could not finish the pasta, but the veal was too good to leave any.
Went back Wednesday evening for take out pizza, ordered a 12" but someone must have been using metric, the pizza was quite large. Again it was cooked just right,
Definitely will return on my next visit

“Just a great restaurant - Come hungry!!!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have now been frequenting this restaurant for the last couple of years but it's been there for years. Let me start by saying that Windsor has a lot of good Italian including some fine dining. Picollo's is not the fancy fine dining that some might want. What Picollo's is, is good Italian food, in very large portions (I'm a 6'2", 220 lb man who has difficulty finishing most meals), affordable and with a very large menu that has something for everyone. The atmosphere is casual and although not elegant, can still be very quaint or romantic, and very friendly. They will prepare your food to your liking, just ask for it, spicy (a 5 out of 10 there is pretty spicy!!!!), garlicky, whatever. The garlic fingers are to die for, pizza is very good. They cater and are great for larger parties too. As far as the food and service go this place is amazing. I will caution you about one thing. If you are looking to be in and out of a restaurant really quickly you'll likely be frustrated. The meals take a while to come out because they are made fresh, there is no pot of sauce stewing on the stove all day. The food is worth the wait and in my opinion a meal shouldn't be done from start to finish in an hour. Enjoy it!!!
