Absolutely fantastic. Went here to celebrate our engagement and were over the moon about the meal. I had the Duck Ragu and my fiancé had the fig tortelli. Hands down one of our favorite dining experience period. Service was fantastic, and everyone tried to make the evening special for our celebration.
Excellent, high quality Italian food in a comfortable outdoor area. Friendly service.
Very good food and service. Nice wine selection. Parking can be a challenge.
My girlfriend and I went here for our 6 year anniversary dinner. I forgot our servers name but he was amazing! 10/10 service from the entire staff, especially our server. He recommended the perfect wine for us and helped us pick out our appetizer which was fantastic (The octopus). I will be returning soon!
Best dining experience I've had in quite a while.
Last night on vacation in Santa Monic
The food was excellent and the patio in the back is a really nice setting. Ernesto was our server and he was excellent. A great night all the way around.
This was our first time back to Piccolo since it closed shop on Dudley in Venice. Food was as good as we remembered it. We ate an early dinner outside on Sunday with sun still high up in the sky. Since there was no cover overhead, the sun was little too bright in my eyes even with sunglasses on. Other than that, I have no complaints. Welcome back, Piccolo !
Erin helped us and she was terrific. Friendly, helpful and non-intrusive. Good job. I'll be back, soon.
The special black ink pasta with lobster in saffron sauce was excellent. The black ink pasta with shrimp was average.
Back patio is a terrific setting. Food was fabulous and so was the service by Ernesto and the rest of the team.
The food, service and cocktails were absolutely Devine. Fantastic meal and experience.
Food, service, ambiance was exquisite. Can’t wait to go back!
My husband and I were visiting from out of town. We were taking a drive along the PCH when we started to get hungry. I went on Open Table to see where we could eat that was close by. This place came up, was close and had great reviews. SO HAPPY we found this place. The food and service was fantastic. My husband said it was the best margarita he has ever had, light and fresh. I had the ravioli special and could have eaten another plate of it. We both stated if we lived close by this would be a place we would eat at at least once a week.
Great food, awesome vibe and great service! I would definitely come back.
Outstanding food and service. Great ambiance, especially with its outdoor seating. Just wished they were able to keep the rabbit salad on the menu
Delicious food and outstanding service. Neighborhood spot vibe.
The food was excellent, the ambiance is perfect and the service was great. I love the decor. The seats are comfortable and the design and lighting is inviting. Love the open ceiling which kept the acoustics at a minimum. I can’t wait to go back again!
Superlative food! Unusual burrata with pear and sweet balsamic. Huge and gorgeously sauced pork chop, with sublime balsamic onions. [The chef really seems to like balsamic.]. Friends raved about the branzino and beet tagliatelli.
Service also was excellent, attentive without being annoying.
However, we were seated in the outside area off the sidewalk because there was a large and noisy party expected on the patio. So we got more of the noise, ambience, and traffic of Lincoln Blvd. The restaurant has done its best to mask all that, but next time we'll ask for the patio.
Have been here a few times. Food is consistently good. They have some tremendous wine bargains on their wine list. Exceptional service.
Food and drinks were excellent! Fantastic service, highly recommend!
The bread was cold…certainly a lousy start at an expensive restaurant. Otherwise, the food was quite good.
Fritto Misto has a much better ambiance along with great food and hot bread!
Erin was an amazing server and the chef was perfection!
Great meal! I had the specials. The octopus appetizer was tender and tasty…loved! The branzino was flavorful and the purple whipped potatoes were yummy too! Would definitely recommend!
We had a great time! Wonderful service, amazing food… a great date spot!
So happy to have a great restaurant on Lincoln again!
Ernesto was great server!
Very good service, delicious food
This was a fantastic dining experience. Our server, Erin, was friendly, knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. We loved every bite. The Old Cuban drink was delicious!
Charmer in Santa Monica. My fish was excellent, served hot and tasty. I just wish the veggies accompanying were also warmer rather than luke temperature.
My mom had taken me there for a special graduation dinner and we loved the food. It was truly a culinary experience of the senses.
Food was fantastic. The menu at the restaurant had a few items not listed on their website which were really delicious. Wine list was extensive. Really nice, private, outdoor ambiance. Packed on a Friday night 🙂
Overly pretentious poor take on italian
Wonderful food, lovely professional, friendly service/staff and delightful spot overall.
Fantastic service, great food, perfect ambiance outside. Will definitely go back again!
This is our new favorite place. The service was outstanding and food delicious. The octopus appetizer was tender and char perfect. Amazing fig and potato tortellini is signature dish and a must, especially for cheese lovers. Can’t wait to go back!
Food and experience/service were incredible! We started with the scallops and they were excellent. I ordered the Tortelloni di Patate e Fichi and it was so tasty and well portioned. My friends ordered the gnocchi and a dish with bolognese and both were delicious. Tastes authentic & flavorful, and pasta is homemade. I don’t think you can go wrong with anything on the menu!
Attentive service, heat lamps for when the sun went down.
I was visiting from out of town but hope to be back soon! Would recommend to friends.
Very nice experience, though the menu is very limited and the patio seating is a bit rough. Tiny table not big enough for their own plates, somewhat cheesy plastic between tables. I would recommend hard surfaces between tables for privacy since it’s such a small space. Service was lovely, food was good. Not a great place if you don’t eat red meat :(
Happy to see a restaurant thrive in that spot since so many have come and gone!
Piccolo was a perfect dinner spot, the food was perfection every dish was unique and kept us wanting more! Highly suggest eating here and don’t forget the dessert!
