We met up with our brother & sister-in-law in Worcester for our nieces' dance competition. The 8 of us went out at 5:15PM to have dinner. Everywhere we stopped was packed with 1-2 hour waits. A complete surprise at that hour. After 20 mins of walking with 4 youngsters we found Piccolo's. They too were busy with many reservations coming... More

Out for anniversary dinner, delighted by this lively intimate Italian restaurant. The venue is small but laid out nicely for a cozy comfortable feel. The restaurant was busy when we arrived. The hostess greeted us kindly and honored our reservation on time. Wait staff is friendly and attentive. We had appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. The meal was nicely timed... More

The order pickup process was flawless, with a lot of help being given to packaging and bagging things so that we could figure out who ordered what when /i got home. The salads were very good, the pasta was very tasty. However the pasta was over cooked. It's got to be tough to get pasta right for takeout. If I... More

First of all the smell and atmosphere in this place is amazing. The feel for the place is good. A large party of us visited here (12 people) so for starter i had calamari, so this was something that disappointed me. They were calamari rings and there was a lot more "heavy" batter rather than squid. It came with tarter... More

Outstanding authentic Italian food....service was very efficient and friendly. The martini they made for me was one of the best I've tasted in years! Clams in white wine sauce is my 'go to dish' and I was really impressed with their dish. My wife was equally impressed with the veal dish that she had. Parking is always going to be... More

Go to Piccolos about 3x a month for business(?) meetings. Food is outstanding!. Some of my favs include any entree with Haddock, every appetizer, and a Veal Parm the size of Rhode Island.

Scheduled on OpenTable very last minute prior to the Garth Brooks concert Sat night. Surprisingly authentic Italian cuisine! Even my Italian food snob hubby was impressed. The appetizer of flatbread was phenomenal, hot and fresh. Our entrees were outstanding - though we felt very rushed eating them- it's not a place to hurry through your meal as everything is literally... More

This was our first time here, and Piccolo's deserves a 3.5 rating, but we just couldn't make it a 4. It was a busy Saturday night, though we were seated very close to our reservation time. Bread and oil arrived promptly though neither was particularly good. The waiter did not ask if we wanted water, but we did flag him... More
