We met some friends there for dinner recently. As always the food and service was excellent. This little out-of-the-way restaurant is just one of the best Italian restaurants in Seattle. No pretentions. We visit Picolinos about three or four times a year and have always been impressed with the quality of the food and service. Don't miss this spot and... More

The meal was excellent; the service impeccable - kind and gracious helpers, servers, etc. The basil/olive oil dip for the bread was amazing. Whenever we finished the bread in the basket, someone was there to ask if we wanted more. I had the spaghetti di mare - mmmm wonderful, the seafood was so fresh!

This review is way overdue just because I cannot find enough ways to thank the folks at Piccollinos for making our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner perfect in every way. The wedding was in August 2016. Our daughter lives in Seattle but we live on the East Coast. It was almost a full time job for me to find the appropriate... More

Cool decor, energetic wait staff, great menu options. We had a group of 8, two were kids. Pork ravioli was a big winner at our table. Three of us ordered it. The pasta is firm and delightfully chewy, not mushy at all. The crab bisque soup leans a little on the salty side, but not too far. Excited to get... More

My wife had heard a few good things so we thought let's check it out. We chose the bar because we figured if they could create some tasty treats there then that should continue on into the dinner menu. We purchased the green salad with slices of pairs, red raspberries and blueberries. It was large enough for the two of... More

This is a charming neighborhood Italian restaurant with a very wide ranging menu with reasonable pricing. This won't be the "best" Italian meal one will ever have, but the charm, energy, and vibe of the place will make you happy and content.

This is one of those places that will haunt my memories for the rest of my life. Someone very special was visiting me in Seattle for a couple days. We'd been driving around and enjoying getting lost, and were now on our way to Shilshole. He's a surfer from L.A., and I wanted to show him the 'beach'. Anyhoo, we... More

This Italian Neighborhood restaurant somehow takes me back to Italy. I just like this place! from the Italian that is heard upon entering the restaurant, the decor, and spatially the food... It quickly aTransports me across the Atlantic. If you are in the area, give them a try.

Cozy restaurant. Main rooms tables are pretty crowded, but try one of the back rooms or the patio out back. Very good food on my three visits there in the past year. Mid-range food, although if you add appetizers, dessert, and wine you can run up a $100 tab for two pretty easily.

Mixed review. Counter staff very helpful and pleasant. Great pear and gorgonzolla arugula salad, but dressing not on side as requested. Wait staff argued back and forth there was no note. Pizza tasty but under cooked, middle a soggy, watery glob. Coffee/tea good.
