Piccolo Trattoria - Pennington
sautéed shrimp with fresh basil, fresh tomato, garlic and extra virgin olive oil served over pasta
grilled sausage sautéed with garlic and broccoli rabe
Sat outside. Everything was wonderful!
We specifically requested an outdoor seating reservation using the Open Table reservation system. The outdoor seating they provide is the the best part of the restaurant. We were informed that they had no outdoor seating available even though they acknowledged our reservation. I find that many restaurants even though they offer Open Table, often ignore specific requests. Next time I will avoid the Open Table and call the restaurant directly.
Birthday dinner - everything was great !!!
While stopping through Princeton on a quick holiday trip, we decided to celebrate a post-surgery milestone. While vaccinated, still felt more comfortable dining outdoors -- and it was the first time we had seen sun in days. What a gloriously friendly staff! The facility was impeccable, and I observed steady cleaning efforts, safely masked and attentive staff. The fare was impressive in flavor AND size, artfully assembled and presented. The gnocchi Sorrento: to LIVE for! Kale & beet salad: a miss due to uncut, and tough leaves. But the rest was delicious -- from the tender calamari to the lovely crab-stuffed portobello. What's more, this team deepened our celebration via a complimentary tiramisu! This visit made the holiday for us! Certainly will be returning when next in town.
We ate outside and had perfect weather. Our waitress was very attentive and we appreciated that too. Good overall experience!
Our server didn’t appear until 1/2 hour on sitting down, said they’re short staff. Ordered our food. Another 1/2 hour went by and flagged him again, and asked for our salads and appetizers. Salads came 15 minutes later. Appetizers came even later. Again he told us they’re short staff. It took (2) hours to receive our main course. Food was very good, luckily the outside dining was a comfortable night and we had enough wine:). We probably won’t come again on their busy nights.
Great meal as usual out on the patio. The pasta is always fresh and delicious. The salad was also very fresh and we always like their rolls. Only issue was they were short staffed both in the kitchen and with servers. It was a busy Saturday night but it shouldn’t take over two hours for two people who are each only having pasta (no appetizers or dessert). Our server was very nice and apologetic for the delays, and fortunately we were not in a hurry, but hopefully this is a temporary thing.
Had to wait too long for salad and main meal.
need to address
We were celebrating my sons graduation. The service and food were really great! The staff sang to my son and really made it special. It was a great evening!
Wonderful thin crust pizza! Lovely outdoor eating patio.
Piccolo's is our local standby. We are never disappointed.
Food quality superb. Frequently visit. Love how the outdoor dining area has improved with beautiful flowers and new cushions on chairs. Servers are attentive.
Realizing it’s was Mother’s Day...service was awful, restaurant was chaotic and unorganized, food wasn’t very good. Very disappointing.
Took really long to receive are food, but that’s probably due to lack of staff because of COVID. Food was great once it came out.
Service was great. Food was incredible. Mother’s Day menu had a variety of options and every dish we ordered was amazing. Highly recommend.
The food was good, but many diners, myself included, were unaware that the restaurant was only offering a brunch buffet that day until 2 pm. There was no mention of it on their website. Most of the food was good, but they offered some pre-packaged items such as danish and croissants, and some of the desserts looked like they were from Costco. For the price they charged, all the food should have been fresh. Our waitress was lovely and attentive. Finally, inside the restaurant was quite crowded; it did not appear the restaurant was following COVID reduced capacity requirements. We ate outside; the patio area was nice, with umbrellas for the tables and decorated with pretty flowers.
The menu is quite extensive and everything was delicious. Service was excellent. The only issue was that we ate outside because of the pandemic and it was quite cold. There were gas heaters on the patio, but we were told they couldn't be used.
Outdoor dining very nice. Food and service was great. Will go back.
I just met a friend at a favorite spot.
The staff treated my graduate with such care....The even put a sparkler in her cheesecake and sang happy graduation to her. They gave us 2 heaters on the deck to keep us comfy.
Wonderful experience and yummy food!
Very large menu. Food was excellent. Service was excellent
Piccolo was just as great as I remembered. Having attended TCNJ and eaten here many times between 2008-2012, I was nervous that I built it all up in my head. That is definitely not the case here. The food was delicious, the service was super friendly and very prompt, and it's a big plus that it is a BYOB. Did I mention the food was delicious? Don't sleep on their Pasta Fagioli or any of their pastas.
First time but won’t be our last
Always fresh, always excellent food and service. Never disappoint.
The staff was very accommodating. The food was very good, with a nice varied selection for an Easter Holiday ( not Ham and Turkey ) ! 8 quests in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal.
Piccolo Trattoria in Pennington is my go to Italian restaurant when I am treating a friend or client because I know it will be a good experience for them especially since I can bring the wine.
The food was absolutely amazing.... the service was timed perfectly. We will be back... soon!
Servers rock! We love the food.
The food was absolutely delicious! My husband and I sat outside. I ordered shrimp scampi and he had spaghetti carbonara. The scampi came with 5 shrimp and was $27.00...WAY over priced. The carbonara was very good but not warm. Our waitress was not very attentive but we will be back despite the slow service and the overpriced seafood because the food was so good.
Good food. Friendly staff. Dinner entree order was incorrect and took much longer than it should have : 30 minutes and there was only one other table of 3 in the restaurant.
We reserved a table here for Valentine's Day. There was a special valentine's menu. We were seated immediately and wine glasses were brought to our table. The food was delicious. I was hesitant to try someplace new on a special occasion, but we haven't found a place we really liked since we moved to the area and a coworker recommended it to me and I decided to give it a try. Well I think now this is going to be our go-to!
For a NJ restaurant restricted to 35% of its seating capacity, this restaurant was VERY CROWDED on Valentine's Day... much more than 35%. Food & service were excellent, my partner & I felt very uncomfortable that evening. Every other night we've eaten there has been just fine.
Picollo is ordinarily a good restaurant with a great atmosphere. For whatever reason, today's food was not well prepared at all--a bit tough and not tasty. For now, we'll attribute it to just an off day.
Food was good to very good, portions were generous, service was good,
The food here was so good. I cannot wait to go back.
I had filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. The meat was sooo tender. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Great food and excellent service.
The veal Saltimbocca and Marsala were delicious and the service was great! Lovely evening- great restaurant!
