This used to be one of my favorite Italian restaurants in LA, but my last visit left me less than satisfied and more than annoyed. \r

5 of the 7 diners (including one gourment chef) thought it was great (mainly the turkey bolognese). My half chicken was terrible--dry, tasteless (and, to paraphrase Woody Allen, "Such a small portion"). Worse than Denny's. I would've

This is the most ridiculouos place in Los Angeles. Ordered stone crab claws, they were frozen and taste free. Horrid, complained but they were not taken off the bill. The dover sole was tasty but it was covered in chanterelles. And nobody told us it was going to be 75.00, yes, 75 dollars. Dover sole of quality should not be covered in really tasty chanterelle that would have been lovley on top of pasta. I do not believe the prices. Some portions are too over the top. Once ordered a chocolate mousee that was huge. Not a good place

Pros: Good dover sole

Cons: 75.00 for dover sole

the place would be great if they didn't lie about the menu!

the vegetarian dishes are all prepared with meats, the owner Silvio I think, lied and said it was vegan, then i found out it was prepared with pork broth! disgusting that he could lie about that, he must know. to late for me I ate it already.

He proceeded to "raise hell" shouting at the servers and making a nuisance of himself.

the sole was good but not worth returning for to put up with all the nonsense that lives inside what could be a really lovely dining experience.

pass.

Pros: nice space - little awkward

Cons: the owners were shouting the whole time

Il Piccolino is an incontrovertible sleeper standout ... I would suggest it's possibly the best restaurant in Los Angeles.

The food choice, quality, and preparation is unparalleled. The staff is professional and courteous and the owners absolutely delightful and completely charming.

These guys will make you feel special, treat you right, and fill you up.

The steak is the best I've had, and everything else is great as well.

Pros: Rib Eye for Two

Cons: it's not cheap, but it's worth it

Delicious specials - we had the cioppino and Mediterranean sea bass. While this restaurant is pricey overall, the wine by the glass was very good and inexpensive ($9). The wait staff was pleasant. We'll return for sure.

Pros: Delicious food, great wine-by-the-glass, nice staff, pretty atmosphere

Cons: Noisy, expensive (worth it, but for a special occasion)

Am i in Capri, Florence, Rome? This place is great, Excellent food with fresh ingredients. The olive oil they use must come straight from the 'old country.' The buratta is the freshest I've tasted in LA. When they have the mussels - run, don't walk, and order a bowl. I recommend you have your secretary cancel your afternoon meetings, order a cold bottle of Pinot Grigio and spend the afternoon chatting up the adorable waitresses.

Something has seriously gone wrong since the last reviews of this restaurant were written. There was not even the slightest hint of an Italian accent in this place. The "Il Piccolino Strozzapretti" were not even close to anything resembling true strozzapretti, but more like gnudi. The wine list is completely lackluster with very few Italian offerings. Don't get me completely wrong, the food was edible. Just NOT Italian. Che peccato!

Pros: easy to get into

Cons: not Italian if that's what you're expecting

The ambience is great, the food terrific. We went here on a Friday night for a birthday and had a great time. Some of the specials are overpriced, but I've never had a bad meal here. It's very relaxing and romantic.
The bouillabaisse I had here was absolutely fantastic, the best I've tried anywhere.
The wait staff were a bit on the snooty side, but everyone's entitled to a bad day. That only happened once, and since then I've had nothing but great service.
Well worth it!

I love this place. Great food, service and not overpriced. A true neighborhood trattoria. It pays to be nice to your customers! People like it! Unlike a lot of quick to close LA Restaurants. Il Piccolino gets it.

Pros: food, value, service

We love this restaurant. The food is always so amazing and the prices are unbelievable. I usually start with tuna carpaccio or the gamberonie salad. That's the best. Big shrimp, feta & mint over mixed greens. Then the fresh fish with olives, tomato, and cpaers. Service is always good. Best of all, the patio is fabulous! Twinkling lights & italian music. A small, cozy restaurant with a great vibe isn't easy to find in LA.

I love the wonderful patio! I come here for business lunches and private dinners. It's my favorite place in the area. Everybody I have brought along loves it! The food is consistently great and the service is always charming.

Il Piccolino is a very cute restaurant. The food is great and the service is always very attentive. We visited the restaurant this past week and used the $10 off Citysearch Gift Certificate.

With a cute, country-like setting, Il Piccolino is reasonably priced for the great food they serve. The exterior patio is canopied with vines and flowers. The entrance is a rustic metal gate as if it is leading you to an italian country cottage. They serve bread with a unique eggplant spread that's quite yummy. The parking is pretty limited since you can only park at the meters. The entire residential area is permit only parking. My usual choice is the pasta w/ chicken, brocolli and sun-dried tomatoes.

Totally cute and quaint. Off the beaten path. Genuine Italians at your service and not wanna-be, pouting actors/actresses. Great portions and tasty! Romantic and worth every cent . . .

If you are looking for a romantic atmosphere in a quaint, cozy (don't gagg, I don't like the word either, but if you want to impress the lady "cozy" ain't a bad start) setting, this one delivers. It was the night after Valentines (my wife and couldn't go out this Valentines/Friday) and there were no long lines or crowds to fight for a table. With not a lot of tables to begin with, there were several that were available right away. I HAD made reservations, but they would not have been necessary, at least last night. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Even the parking was easy, right along the side street. Absolute hassle-free, romantic dining. I asked the lady who took my reservation "Are you SURE this place is romantic? Will my wife be impressed?" She said yes; she was right. Have fun....

I've been here twice, and loved it both times. I've sampled the bowtie pasta with salmon in a pink sauce and a tasty linguini with shrimp entree. The linguini was cooked perfectly al dente. I would recommend both of these dinners. For dessert, the tiramisu is a great choice. In addition to the food, the ambience is romantic . Choose from the candelit main room or enjoy the outdoors on the small patio.
