Had a nice dinner at Piccolo Paradiso with family (8 people). The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. The staff was first rate. Would recommend to anyone. One nice thing was I didn't have to pick up the tab..........

This tiny restaurant, south of Wilshire Blvd., has a nice atmosphere, but has a tendency to get pretty loud when packed. However, the food is outstanding, but little pricey. Part of the Drago family, this restaurant is relatively unknown, and is every bit as good as the rest of them. Most of their entrees were really hearty, ranging from chicken and beef, to several fresh fish and seafood courses, in addition to a variety of pastas and risottos. I had their sliced NY steak w/ arugula salad, and it was perfectly cooked. My guest had the squid ink pasta, which was equally as delicious, but a little rich. Both dishes were large portions, and could have been shared. The wait staff were very attentive, and their serve a fair amount of good quality wines by the glass. I made a last minute reservation, and had no problems getting in. There was no valet on duty and no parking when I arrived, but there is a parking lot just slightly south of the restaurant, which was not inconvenient. Sometimes you can get lucky and find street parking, but the restaurant does have a valet service available supposedly. This place seems to be a local hotspot, so I suggest making reservations, but I don't feel they may be necessary unless it is a Friday or Saturday night. I do suggest making reservations for earlier seating, as the later it gets, the noisier it gets.

Delicious food, great pasta, really nice people. And by the way there's a secret little garden area outside - ask them to let you sit there, it's like being in your own private restaurant
