Spectacular food - good wine list. Main dining room was very loud but we did go on a Saturday night during Worcester Restaurant Week. Looking forward to trying this place again.

We're so glad we used an OpenTable reservation. It was a last-minute pick; Piccolo's was VERY busy, with extremely limited parking, but we were seated immediately.
The restaurant is old school Italian, and was crowded and noisy, but actually just the sort of place we needed.
The service was friendly and prompt, and the food was awesome.
We would definitely go again.

Having heard so much about this restaurant- all positive - I was disappointed in the food. It was very average .... I ordered what was close to chicken parmigiana and got a giant slab of chicken (not impressed w/large servings a la chain restaurants) with gemilli and sauce which though homemade were just so so. Fried calamari app again very average. Dessert course good - we shared a lemon mascarpone tart. Service was great and the ambiance very North End Boston but as a day visitor to Worcester looking for a great meal overall it was a letdown...

Valentine’s Day dinner was a success. Was a bit of a wait even though we had reservations, but so worth the wait.

This was our first time dining at Piccolo's. We were greeted promptly and seated within a few minutes of our reservation. Our server was quick to greet us and our food was really good arriving quickly. My husband and I both had pasta. The food was served hot with generous portions. My margarita did not disappoint!
However, the restaurant was very noisy and the tables were within inches of one another, not a romantic atmosphere for Valentine's Day!

Staff is very friendly from the moment you walk in the door until you leave. Our server Amanda was awesome! The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Such a great evening. If you do not like close tables then maybe it's not for you but we loved it. Can't wait to go back, we will be regulars.

The restaurant is old world Italian in décor and rather noisy. Our server was very attentive but the kitchen appeared slow. Food was decent but lacked any type of wow. Overall decent for a night with the kids but not sure if we would return again.

My family and I really enjoy this restaurant. The food it’s always good. It’s served hot and it’s fresh. They could do better with their wine list, in my opinion.
I’ve been there for date night, larger family gatherings and meeting friends after work for dinner. It can get super busy but tonight it was not and we had practically the entire place to ourselves until we were there for about an hour. The servers are attentive, but not overly so, and friendly. Tonight’s experience did not disappoint.

Best Italian food on Shrewsbury St. Great service is a constant here. Quality of food and portions are well worth the it.
Breadsticks and ravioli appetizers were great. I had the twin medallion filet entree which is yo die for . Girlfriend loves the chicken parmigiana. Sauce is on point

We arrived on time for our reservation and had to wait for a table to be ready, so we went to the bar and ordered two drinks. After 10 minutes we were seated in a small booth in the bar area. The noise level in this room was too loud for us to hear each other, and we wish that we were seated in the dining room. We started with an order of meatballs and I got a small salad that was delicious. I ordered a chicken broccoli alfredo which was good and my boyfriend had the veal marsala. We both enjoyed our meals. Dessert was disappointing - we got coffees and the molten lava cake that came without ice cream. We both thought that it was pricey for Worcester.

This is a very simple review. If you want authentic Italian food that tastes great, friendly service (Stacey was very attentive), and easy on the wallet, go to Piccolo's. Nuff said!
