Wonderful as always
we had a wonderful dinner as always. Just Delish. Cant wait to go back!!!
I have been to Piccola Italia a few times and have never been disappointed. We were there with some friends for lunch on a Tuesday and the restaurant was quiet. We sat at the bar and had some drinks and then moved to our table. The bartender turned out to be out waiter as well and he was extremely service oriented. All food orders were excellent. Started with some fried calamari, mussels and squash flowers. A few of us had the shrimp scampi with asparagus; pork milanese, burrata ravioli and salmon dish. Everything was delicious. A bunch of very good cocktails as well. I think our server/bartender name was Mark and he was delightful. Shared a cocktail recipe with me that I would love to try.
Food, service and ambiance is always spectacular. We love eating at Piccolo Italia.
Fabulous meal. We both had a special of cod over pasta - it was incredible. Great wine list, fantastic appetizers and delicious sorbet for dessert. A wonderful evening.
Everyone has a bad night, and the servers were kind, but the food was a disaster!
Food was exceptional and our server Mark was great. Owner and his wife were very good hosts. Can't wait to return. Wine list is terrific too!
Food was excellent- owner came out of the kitchen to say hello and his wife was very welcoming. A+
5 stars every time! Best food in NJ. My husband and I choose to eat here nearly every time we dine out. Can’t say enough good things
We had been there before dinner. This time we went for lunch. The food, service and ambiance remain amazing but there were no other diners at the restaurant this time. It is a shore restaurant and likely more people wanted to be closer to the ocean.
I ate there for years, and was so disappointed this time. I had a reservation, and was not told that the two large rooms would have private parties and suggested we eat in the entry corridor, which is too open. Everyone who walks in, looks at your table. First sent to the bar, and then attended to before we sat on a stool. Food was good/ Not as good as every other time. Not sure I will go back.
Service was amazing as always. Food was even better than the service. One of my favorite places
We love it there!!!
Great food, great service and NOT noisy. Homemade pasta was super yummy
Great food and service. We went for a wine tasting and enjoyed a great evening.
A warm greeting started our experience as a first timer and it just got better. Food was great as well as the service. Very accommodating in handling an incident. New customer was being seated in the next table however in the process the women's shoulder bag knocked over a vase with water and flowers on our table. Unfortunately my wife got wet but the staff attended to the problem immediately and even offered to change our table which want necessary. Also as a result some of the water from the vase spilled into an appertizer plate that was on our table. It was immediately removed as well as their offer to replace it. Despite this mishap everything else was fine and look forward to the next time.
Consistently a great meal. Almost hidden gem.
Hands down the best of its kind in Monmouth County.
This was my first dining experience here. Fantastic! From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home. Our waiter Ramon was fabulous! Wine list is amazing! Do not miss the ravioli dish! We shared the rib eye for two which rivals the best steakhouses you can find. A visit from the chef/owner was a welcome addition. We will be back many more times to this hidden gem!
Wonderful place to go and have a great meal!
We were very disappointed overall. The service was poor and the food was mediocre.
Exceptional veal ragout preceded by moth watering eggplant rollitini-service very good and nice (but expensive) cocktails prepared perfectly!
Absolutely delicious meal from start to finish! Loved the extensive wine list with great selections at all price points. Service was friendly and professional. Would highly recommend - this is a real gem!
We have been here several times and always had a wonderful meal. Every appetizer, entree, wine and server was excellent.
As always delicious and innovative.
Always skeptical about eating out on a holiday but Visited this restaurant on Easter Sunday anyway.
The food was excellent, the service impeccable as it consistently is!
This is usually a good go to restaurant. This day was not as good. Will try again
We came here for a date after having an amazing dinner here 1 year before during a training. As a date instead of a more business like dinner, it was still amazing. A small plate is always brought with a selection from the chef to try. The soup that evening was a porcini mushroom soup which was made to order and was heavenly. This is definitely a place that we will be visiting again. And again.
Food excellent service good will return soon
Absolutely delicious as usual
Made reservations online, when I got there it was close, just because a little bit of rain, therefore they don’t honor their hours, as we say in Italy ciao
Outstanding meal, perhaps our finest since we moved to New Jersey three years ago. The duck was perfectly done and the finest I've had in a while. The portions were manageable and the small additions offered by the chef and our servers were very nice touches to an overall delightful evening. We will surely be back. The attention to detail in the presentation of our entrees showed the interest the house had in setting a high standard.
What a great restaurant! Everything about it was excellent! Our server Mike was gracious and made sure we would not feel rushed between courses. He took the time to ask us questions before recommending something from the wine list. We chose from the menu-duck potstickers, grilled iceberg wedge, burrata ravioli and the veal ragout. All perfectly cooked and delicious. I picked this place randomly, because I was in the area and it was an unexpected surprise!
Never disappoints. Brian and his staff do an exceptional job. Had the filet, it was perfect. Tony at the bar is great. Been a satisfied customer for over 15 years. My wife orders the scallops every single time. The wine list over time has grown by pages. Great place.
I hate to write this review because I feel like Piccola Italia is a best kept secret in our neighborhood. The food is delicious and the service is exceptional. It's our favorite local spot.
Great atmosphere, quiet but not too quiet. All food my party had was excellent. Staff was very friendly and highly professional. A little more expensive than the typical area Italian restaurant, but it was definitely worth it for a bit of a step up.
Food and service were outstanding!
The best place! We love everything about it and we are always happy with ththe service, food, and expeirence!
Best restaurant I New Jersey
