“Great Neighbood Restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is in my old neighborhood. My sister and I used to dine here with our mother. We shared some wonderful memories at Piccola Italia. The food is great and the alfresco dining is nice too.

Reviewed December 28, 2011

Pizza and dishes are consistently good. Wait can be long, but service is attentive.

“quality of food doesn't meet the price!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

My family and I ate at Piccola Italia last night. First time eating there. It was busy and usually thats a good sign. The restaurant was clean and service was great.. The problem was the food. We ordered 2 appetizers that were no different than what you would buy at the grocery store and prepare yourself. Wait time on everything was acceptable. Mainly what we have to say is we have ate at alot of places that are so much better for less money. The food is highly overcharged at Piccola Italia for the quality of food that you receive. Very disappointed.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

Poor service, arrogant wait staff, high prices, cold food.

This restaurant is about to close, as it was empty on Saturday night around 7:00 PM. It's a shame, but easy to see why. It's dirty.

Not recommended.

“owner is very rude to customers”
Reviewed January 29, 2010

the owner is surly, and should appoint another employee to approach customers at the tables. He is taking away from wait staff tips by going to the tables to talk to customers. The tables are very close there and recently I heard him approach a very friendly customer. He was extremely rude to this person for no reason at all. I have heard him do this before and will not eat there again. Also, the food is overpriced and the owner himself tells customers that a number of items are not made there and that basically they are trying to do "italian fast food there. The food quality does not match the price.
