We go to Piccolo's when we visit Siesta Key and their daily specials are never a disappointment. The couple works hard at making customers feel welcome and well fed. The large wedges are enough for two and the chicken parm and sausage special are topped with a mellow and tasty red sauce. All food is prepared freshly and there is... More

We went in to purchase some products, they all looked very nice. But they were busy with on one person serving customers. Everything look very gfood but over priced we can get the same quality items at our deli in Citrus county.

From the deli to the kitchen this place is like visiting Italy. Antonio and Josephine prepare culinary delights for consumption on premises or 'to go'! ITS LIKE HOMEMADE ITALIAN, pasta, rabbe, sausage n peppers, pasta dishes, 'grinders' (subs) like the Tony Soprano...you can't miss.....EXCELLENT! Friendly atmosphere, great people, food and ...'baby it's authentic Italian'. Don't miss this one....'bravo.'

I just love their cooking. Reminds me of the lovely Italian home of my mothers best friend. Meatballs to die for. Eggplant, cold cuts, salads, sandwiches of all kinds. We love the friendly service. The best.

I always go in this deli directly from the airport and buy all my luncheon meats and amazingly prepared Italian foods for my week at the beach. Don't forget to pick up some bread and the Italian sausage as well.

This place is legit. Very good subs and a million other specialty items. They also make top notch pizza but it's not on the menu.

This place is always worth the trip. It has the best everything!!! We've never been disappointed in anything we've had here. Freshest products from start to finish. It makes dieting very difficult when we're in the area.

Yummy!! Italian Sub, Tom Hanks, Dean Martin, a perfect trio. Bread is fresh, meats are tasty, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, just enough condiments to keep it flavorful. Yes, we're making this our FAV!
