A REALLY NICE FIND IN SANTA CLARITA
We were pleasantly surprised by Piccola Trattoria. .we sometimes have a hard time finding good dining here, but we really enjoyed ourselves. The Dover Sole was very, very good, flavorful, served with velvety mashed potatoes and really tasty brussell sprouts. Our waiter really knew his stuff. and was very attentive. The only minor issues were the linguine vongole had a fair number of clam shellls wih no clams in them and a risotto with crab had very little crab. Other than that, we really enjoyed ourselves

Piccola food is authentic Italian and wonderfully prepared. The service is terrific and if there is an Italian dish you like that is not on the menu just ask and if they can they will prepare for you. One of my favorite places

First off, the service on a busy Valentine's Day night was exceptional. My chicken with lemon and capers was bright and tasty. Bread brought to the table was crusty and superb. Unfortunately, the appetizer we ordered (against our waiter's gentle recommendation) was only so-so. I can't recall the name exactly, but it was crostini bread, cheese and tomato. The desserts were a mix. The buttery tart and berries dazzled. The molten chocolate cake was very average.

Can't give this place high enough honors. My wife and I both thought it would be one of those places that define the trope of luxury - sky-high prices with itsy-bitsy portions. Thankfully for us, and everyone else, the food offered is filling, tasteful, flavorful, and creative. The waiter we had knew his wines well, and being fresh to the wine scene, we didn't know what we were getting - but the waiter delivered. The appetizer was well-balanced, the food was top-notch, the wines we got fit our desired tastes, and the dessert was extremely well-priced for the quality and portion size. Complimentary bread to start and plenty of care and attention throughout the meal made this experience worth the price. Bring cash to tip your valet driver, though. Valet is complimentary, though, in case you're wondering.

Our meals were great as usual. The only hiccup was dessert. While my husband got his bailey's and coffee pretty quickly my dessert was delivered to the table next to ours by mistake as they ordered dessert after us. When my husband asked where my dessert was the waiter shut him down like it was because they were busy. The waiter asked 10 minutes later if I was still waiting, which should have been obvious and only then did he check where it was. Shortly after my frozen dessert arrived, the couple at the next table got their second dessert (something that had to be baked), which they took home because one of them had already finished their dessert. When I mentioned what happened to our waiter he admitted that's what happened but no apology or offer to comp us. Again this kind of thing was really unusual for this place, but the rest of the meal was delicious. Perhaps some basic training to serve everyone's courses together msy be needed but it's just probably best not to visit the day before Valentine's Day.

We came in to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were the first reservation. Online it said this restuarant was casual, but I thought it was a little fancy. Beautiful linens and candlelight on each table. The service was quick and non-intruding. Our food was amazing. They came out with a birthday cannoli with a candle. It was a beautiful night. We will for sure be back.

There is no better restaurant in the Santa Clarita Valley. The food is amazing, the service exceptional. You can choose from their regular menu or the specials. Good wine selection and they have a full bar for other drinks. Don't leave without getting dessert.

My new friend and I had a fabulous experience. The restaurant had a warm and friendly atmosphere with a hint of sophistication. The menu had a selection for everyone's taste and dietary requirements. We arrived later in lunch but when the end came we weren't rushed to move on. I highly recommend the restaurant and hope to return soon.

Service and food were top notch as usual but their having a complimentary cannoli with Happy Anniversary written on the serving plate was a touching finish.

The food was AMAZING, as always. They make a mean dirty martini.
I was disappointed in the service. We tend to get the same server most of the time and he’s great. This was the second time with this other server and he was not good at all. We had to ask for everything. He never even filled our wine glasses when they were empty. Not impressed with the service that night.
