What a terrific job Doug Flicker has done with Piccolo. This tiny little space is comfortable and cozy, and nestled in a south side neighborhood. What was completely unexpected was the creativity and the absolutely delightful tastes that each petite course delivered. One of our party was hesitant to get the five course tasting menu ("too much") but gentle prodding... More

The five course Tasting Menu was delicious. Portions were on the small side as you always find with better restaurant tasting menus. I have eaten at Catbird Seat in Nashville and Per Se in New York. They served many more courses of about the same size. But, I have to say that the meal we had tonight is on par... More

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary last night. I had read the reviews and was prepared that the portions would be small. We are not big eaters, especially in the evening, so did not find the small bites inadequate. We each ordered five different items from the tasting menu, and shared a carafe of red wine. Each...

Our party of 3 tried almost everything on the menu and every dish was imaginative, flavorful and expertly prepared. Ditto for the wine pairings. The only downside was the very small servings. I am a very light evening eater, so the portions were perfect for me and I actually shared half of my 5 course tasting menu with my dinner... More

When my wife and I visit our son and daughter-in-law in Mpls. they pick the restaurant we pick up the check. This is one of their top picks. We enjoyed the taste adventure thoroughly. We each had the 5-course tasting menu. Three of us also had the wine pairing. One of me was the D.D. The report was that the... More

The portions are way too small, said the 95 pound woman in our party. Yes, some of the bites were sublime, but at the end of the night we left hungry. I don't think I've ever criticized a restaurant before for portion size because I tend to be a light eater, but the size of the courses here (2 or... More

Our experience lived up to the reviews of others. The three of us had the tasting menu and two had the wine pairings. As others have stated, the portions are small but we felt they were certainly adequate. With the quality of the course, a larger quantity was not necessary. We took our time and enjoyed every bite along with... More

I am not a fan of tasting menus. To me one is like a cruise ship - you see a place you like and you aren't able to explore it at greater length, and if you don't care for it you wonder why you are there in the first place. I am from Las Vegas, with many celebrity chefs and... More

I really enjoyed the food, presentation, exceptional service and great wine. As a big foodie with a great deal of tasting menu experience, my only complaint is that the portion sizes are extremely small... More bite-sized that tasting menu sized. I am not a big eater or a heavy drinker: however, after eating the full tasting menu and our table... More

I loved, loved, loved this place. We had it on our " to do" list. I've eaten at Michelin a star restaurants with celebrated chefs but nothing beats the neighborhood hidden secret. I did the tasting with the wines. I The pairings were surprising and decadent. What I enjoyed the most was how cozy and unpretentious this restaurant is. I... More
