Customer Review of Piccolo Trattoria on Yelp - Pennington, NJ
- on Yelp
We have friends who live in the neighborhood and they love going there, so we said we'd give it a try & went with them about 2 years ago. Since then, we've gone there with them several times!
All the food is excellent in taste & quality; the service is superb! Each server we've had is friendly, knowledgeable, very attentive & experienced ~ very professional.
My absolute favorite appetizer is their Artichoke Fantasy. Initially, 4 were served on the plate, which was perfect for a party of 4; then they reduced it to 3; I asked the server about it and he said that's what they serve now. As we left, I mentioned it to the manager, but he brushed it off. I would rather than increased the cost a little & return to serving 4 on a plate.
The ambience and decor is quite nice & the seats are comfortable. Some people come dressed up & others casual but not sloppy. It is expensive, I assume partly because they serve high quality food.
If you order one of the specials the server tells you about, you may want to ask what the cost is because it's usually much higher than any other menu item.
It's BYOB ~ just a few doors away is a store where you can pick up a cold bottle of wine.
In the nice weather, they have tables outside in a fenced off dining area ~ which is a nice change!
When you leave, there is a large clear bowl of wrapped chocolate covered mints ~ be sure to take one or two on your way out... mmm.
Piccolo's is located in the shopping mall at the opposite end from Stop & Shop, so the parking is in a public lot, but you are always able to park fairly close to the door. I'm mentioning this since none of the choices below apply.
