Had dinner here last night for our 40th anniversary. The staff were so sweet, sat us in the back in a private corner. The food was so good. I had the eggplant parm and my husband had pan seared scallops. The stuffed mushrooms were very good too as were the hot crusty rolls. They even brought us a cannoli with... More

Good looking room, very nice service. The menu looks great, but the execution leaves something to be desired. This is a case where fewer ingredients would make a better dish. Italian food doesn't need unnecessary flourishes. Appetizers were much better than the mains.

Table for nice but service was poor. Had too many service staff. Dishes not cleared until I flagged down a waiter. Online menu stated steak was 26.99 but was 35.99 on the menu at the restaurant. Menu stated real whipped cream for peanut butter dessert but it was from the container. Told staff but did not seem too interested. Prices... More

It has been a while since I have visited Piccola's in Manchester and it is still as good as I remembered it. I was at a conference and 3 of us wanted to go out for a "nice" meal... The service was quick and the staff was fantastic. The waitress had a wonderful sense of humor and did everything in... More

Stopped in before going to the Palace theater and had a surprisingly good dinner. My wife raved about the Chicken Piccata and I enjoyed the Eggplant alla Parmigiana. We both agreed the tomato sauce made the dish. The whole meal was further enhanced by the outstanding service of Amanda. My wife is ready to return.

We had dinner at Piccola last Sunday for the first time and will be back. The pumpkin martini was to die for delicious and they gave me the recipe! Amanda was a fabulous server and the entrees we had were tasty and nicely presented. I had the special with spinach fettucine, pine nuts, truffle oil and fresh spinach. My husband... More

I had cheese ravioli with marinara sauce and the lemon cake. Despite being a picky person, I was happy with both! The ravioli was not over-cheesed or burned at all, which I've been finding lately. The cake was fantastic, though I would have preferred if white chocolate shavings were smaller. I will return!

Went with some adults and teenagers and everyone were able to find a good dish. The staff was very accommodating to some special requests due to food allergies. The place is a bit expensive but you get a good deal for the money.
