Very crowded, early for our reservation so sat at the bar. Decided to have dinner at the bar because restaurant was so packed. Food was amazing. Bartender could have been a little more attentive but was also doing the service bar so very busy. Would definitely return again.

On Valentine’s Day I understand that restaurants want to capture as many guests as possible; profitable for the restaurant and more accommodation for the client. However, the tables were too close. Along with this, I felt like my table in particular was added in and it was right next to the servers alley - I could not drink or pour my wine with my left arm for fear that it might accidentally get hit by a server...way too close. The food quality was good and the server was delightful. I would go back again, just not on Valentine’s Day.

A very nice Valentine’s Day. The eggplant Della nonna was incredible! My husband and I moved away from Manchester years ago, so it was wonderful to return to an old favorite. My only complaint? Although we arrived early to a less than full restaurant on a holiday evening, the service wasn’t very good. We had to ask for bread and for refills on water and wine. Although I put in our appetizer order early while my husband parked our car, it took FOREVER for our waitress to come back for our dinner order. It was fine. We had a great evening. But still! Bread, please!!!!

We loved our appetizers and dinner. I would have preferred Italian bread with an herbal oil instead of rolls and butter. My only other comment is that our Grey Goose Cosmopolitans tasted differently from how we make them at home and they were just not as good. We make ours with Cointreau and wondered if Grand Marnier or some other type of orange liqueur was used. They were a little heavier and thicker than we’re used to drinking. We had a lovely time.

Real Boston North End restaurant here in NH. No need to drive an hour to Boston’s Hanover and Salem Streets. We have East Boston Johnnie right here on Elm Street! We’re regulars and have never been disappointed with a meal here. Everything is awesome, including the awesome staff! And the parking couldn’t be better. (Well ok maybe a tad better but it’s not like trying to park on Hanover in Boston. C’mon! Can’t wait for our next visit!!

We have been to Piccola many times. The food and service are consistently outstanding. Our last visit on New Years Eve was no exception. We were greeted promptly by the host and we were seated in a spot we often request without any hesitation despite it being a busy evening in the restaurant. Our server Matthew was attentive and paced our meal appropriately. The food quality was supreme and the portions are more than adequate. I am already looking forward to our next visit.

My husband and I came for dinner tonight.

The food was phenomenal.

I had the scallops in Vodka sauce.

The scallops were huge, plentiful, perfectly cooked, sweet.

The fettuccini is literally heaven.
OMG. So fresh, creamy deliciousness.

My husband had the Shrimp Bachioletta.
Forgive me if I misspell.

He said if he could lick the plate, he would have. LOL. Kinda glad he didn't.😅

Wait staff was equally wonderful, and treated us like family.

Thank you so much.

Such a wonderful way to end 2018.

A tradition for my family to go to Piccolas for Christmas Eve. Must be at least 6 years now. This year my husband and I went on our own. Food was excellent as usual. I always get the same dish! Veal Piccola Italia, yum! Our service was nothing special which made the waitress a very lucky lady because we are easy. But we do notice less than amazing service. I’ll keep coming for nostalgia and tradition.
