  • Only place I've ever heard of who wanted to be delisted from Zagat because of their ranking. After eating there, I side with them, not Zagat!
  • Cod filling pumpkin ravioli!
  • The avocado & pine nut salad is amazing
  • IMO, this is the BEST Italian restaurant in LA. We did the tasting menu (ask for it - it wasn't on the menu) with wine pairing, and it was heaven in our mouths!
  • Unbelievable Italian food, easy parking and it will cost you. Be prepared to wait for your table but you should get a free glass of wine for it.
  • The worst service and hostess named Roberta -- condescending when I said we didn't have a rez. Told us 10-15 for outside. We waited for 50 min & eventually gave up. She didn't apologize or care.
  • The Yellow tail. Just do it.
  • Tasting menu!
  • The staff speaks Italian?! Vatican royalty would feel right at home!
  • Parking is easy, drive to the beach on Rose Ave and boom your at the lot
  • Stumbled upon this place and was pleasantly surprised by a REaLLY good restaurant. The Carabonara is reaaly good as was the soup of the day but the Lamb took the cake. Love the servers as well.
  • It's true-the first time I ate at Piccolo it made it into my top 5 meals ever, world-wide. I dream about.... fresh made pasta w/truffles & truffle oil, filet mignon in red wine reduction sauce...
  • It was a Beat Generation hangout, with the likes of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg hanging out there. Today, the old Venice West Cafe it closed in 1966 is home to Piccolo.
  • Hazelnut gnocchi, squid ink pasta, semifriddo
  • Very expensive but very good!
  • Lamb carpaccio
  • we had scallops, tortelli and a couple of desserts. mind blown. phenomenal.
  • Delicious and authentic Italian dishes.
  • A very nice restaurant close to our hotel in Venice. Excellent risotto, and carbonara. Note; The olive oil served to the bread is outstanding, has a strength of pepper and a taste of green apple.
  • overpriced and overrated. there are better restaurants out there!
