Guests at Il Piccolino Ristorante choose traditional Italian offerings from a dinner menu of hearty pastas, meat entrees, and inventive pizza creations. Patrons use forks or industrial-sized straws to consume the four gooey cheeses stuffed inside cannelloni, which dons a coating of tomato and béchamel sauce. For the Dante’s Inferno specialty pizza, culinary artisans assemble a smorgasbord of mild Italian-style sausage, portobello mushrooms, and a chili-marinated eggplant atop a doughy disc. Sweet-pepper-chipotle salsa tops grilled salmon with linguine pasta, and apple-brandy cream sauce slathers a stuffed chicken breast. For dessert, dining duos and quartets indulge in the house tiramisu, which dessert gurus craft in the Northern Italian tradition of pouring coffee over everything.

Old photographs and softly lit wall sconces adorn the intimate dining space’s yellow, textured walls. At the front of the building, an outdoor patio encloses eaters in an ivy-covered perimeter where large umbrellas protect from the sun and hang gliders trolling for their next meal.

Il Piccolino Ristorante

Piccolino translates from Italian as "very little one." In this case, piccolino refers to the quaint vintage villa that houses the rustic Il Piccolino Ristorante. Grape vines wind around the sun-drenched patio framed by trellises that leads to an interior of stucco-textured walls offsetting leather chairs and paisley-print tablecloths. This homespun, Old-World ambiance reinforces a menu of made-to-order Italian comfort food. Chefs stuff manicotti with ricotta and blanket gnocchi in gorgonzola cream sauce. They also adorn pizzas with ingredients such as tiger shrimp, italian sausage, and chili-marinated eggplant for a take on Italian that is both familiar and surprising.
