I had a reservation for 8 pm, and we arrived at 8:03, but weren’t seated until 8:25 or so. Also our Parmesan shaker didn’t work but when we asked the waiter for more Parmesan he gave us an unlabeled salt shaker, which we didn’t notice (since it was dark) until dousing our pastas in salt, effectively ruining our meals. I’m sure the pasta would’ve been great otherwise. Ultimately could’ve been a better experience.

I enjoyed the most amazing lunch at Piccola Cucina Estiatorio. I started with the mista salad, which included carrots, tomatoes and a few other special ingredients. I then had the paccheri with shrimp and zucchini ribbons. It may have been the best pasta dish that I've ever eaten. It was served in a skillet and was quite generous in size. I finished with the chocolate gelato, which was very tasty. The service was awesome and the prices most reasonable. I can't wait to go back.

We were a party of four on September 2nd and we all agreed that the entire experience was wonderful. From the food, to the service, to the wine to the ambience, we couldn't have been happier. Our server gave us food and wine recommendations that were spot on. We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I on our 16th anniversary had a wonderful meal. The service was excellent and the dishes we order were all fresh and delicious. Due to covid we were dining on on the sidewalk, it was well put together considering the circumstance.

The food was excellent. I have gone to this restaurant in the past and have always been pleased with the food. However, inside the restaurant is another story. You are very much crowded and the music is VERY LOUD. You could never go for a nice meal and have a conversation. However, eating outside was better in that regard. My only complaint is the tables are so small that once your plate arrives, you have no room for even your glasses. A larger table would be very much appreciated. Again, the food and service was top notch.

We were taken at our reservation time (a must.) The food tastes as though Nana made it in her kitchen! We eat here and at the other two whenever possible.

AMAZING FOOD AND AMAZING SERVICE! Went here on a spontaneous weekday date with my boyfriend and couldn’t have been happier. The cacio e pepe was fabulous as was the bruschetta with lobster appetizer. Our server was attentive and brought additional cannoli when we only ordered tiramisu for dessert :) beautiful outdoor patio, highly recommend!

Everything is amazing. Only thing we were concerned about was there is really no social distancing even with outdoor dining. We would’ve stay longer but my wife felt uncomfortable since the tables were very close to each other.
