Never judge a restaurant by how it looks from the outside. That's what I learned when I tried this small, plain-looking restaurant. Enticed by the promise of an insalata, pizza and beverage, I ventured inside and ordered a bruschetta and a Napolitano pizza. The bruschetta was simple but flavorful with its fresh, juicy tomatoes. Then when the Napolitano pizza arrived, its simple appearance belied its amazing taste! With its thin crust topped with just the right amount of cheese and wonderful hints of anchovies, I ended up eating the entire pizza! The owner, who also serves the guests, said that the recipes are his grandfather's and their family had been making these wonderful pizza for generations. Here's hoping they'd continue doing what they do best for another generation.

We loved our experience here! The owner, who also waited on us, was warm, friendly, and efficient. We've seen him outside Piccolo Bucco everyday we've been here and he smiles and waves or salutes us :) Nice guy, GREAT food!

never left feedback before but felt we should as used other people's recomendations to chose this place - I visited with my family including younger kids and we were well looked after all night - the food was beyond our expectations and the service was first class from a mother and son team who really cared about the quality of the produce they used - as an example of the extra mile they went to the kids wanted ice cream for dessert and they weren't happy with the quality of their own, so the owner personally took them to a gelateri nearby who made a big fuss of them

Enjoyable meal, staff are friendly. Price reasonable for a tourist area. Pizzas were nice, and had a lovely salad.
