Description: Italian Dining at Piccolino When Salvatore Faso opened Piccolino Ristorante Pizzeria, his goal was simple: combine his lifelong experience accumulated in the finest Italian restaurants of Italy and California, with the finest ingredients, authenticity, preparation and a passion for the Canyon and its surrounding communities. Established in 2007, Italian dining at Piccolino serves regional Italian cuisine, including artisan made pasta, fresh wild caught fish and the finest meats and poultry available on the market daily. We serve some of the finest Italian and Californian wines available.

We had a small party and were served buffet style. Tried several dishes and pleased by all. We were able to arrive via a private pontoon boat, which was a nice touch.

Had a great dinner - a salmon special and my husband ordered the veal chop special. Our service was great, the wine was great and the food excellent. We loved their lettuce/cucumber dip for their fresh bread.

Very busy, friendly family orientated Italian restaurant overlooking Mission Viejo lake. Dining here was a pleasant experience, other than the food, which was not so great. Huge portions - virtually everyone left with styrofoam boxes - but the food was bland, stodgy and flavourless. Pasta clearly cooked from dry, not fresh. Smaller, but much tastier meals please

We were greeted so warmly as we entered Piccolino's. It was my dad's 90th birthday (he had told them when he made reservations) and they made such a big deal wishing him happy birthday. They even made a special production out of his Tiramisu dessert..with candle and all!! The owner, Sal, came over to make sure everything was ok, and he was able to unhurriedly chat with us... so unlike many other places. The food was wonderful and the portions were ample. They have a wonderful Veal Marsala, but they readily substituted chicken for the veal when asked. It is not a big place, but had friendly, attentive service and very tasty food!

Piccolino is the place for authentic Italian food. With its extensive menu, there is always something new to try. The eggplant appetizer is a great way to start along with the Calamari fritti. The salads are great with the Piccolino salad being my favorite. Their Osso Bucco when available is delicious.
They have an extensive wine list and they allow corkage and I believe that they waive the corkage fee on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
