    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Superb. Go with a group of 10 good friends and get the semi-private room in back. Afterwards, say "Ho mangiato bene."

    Super-lovely place!! Since our table wasn't ready in time, we were poured a few glasses of exquisit champagne ~ good start ~ the Tagliatelle al Ragú di Capriolo was "Oh, so good!!" Read more

    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! Read more

    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... Read more
