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.

had lunch here with my parents, it was a little pretentious. Had calamari, which I expected to be fried, but it wasn't.... turns out I don't like calarmi when it isn't crispy.

It was a super hot day so we were relieved to walk into a nice air conditioned quiet restaurant, we must've been early because there was barely anyone there. The rolls were super yummy I could've filled up on just those. The drinks were OK. The asparagus appetizer was amazing! I would definitely get that again. I got the gnocchi... More

Went to a marvelous fund-raiser at Piccola Italia in response to the Pan Mass Challenge in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Challenge. The Italian food served buffet style was excellent and plentiful. The restaurant management and its staff were very generous. Will definitely recommend Piccola Italia and will return often.
