My husband and I have been here many times and never been disappointed. Took friends with us this time and they really liked it as well
Superb service and food as always. Thank you Russell and team for another fantastic night. Love this place!!
We stopped by for a light lunch and the grilled shrimp over arugula was outstanding!
Excellent customer service and food. Thankyou
Local favorite restaurant - don't see it advertised much, and location does not stand out - but the locals know that it is a nice restaurant with really good food and service. Main entrees are always fresh and taste great.
Our server was a new staff member and very inexperienced. Lacked the wait service that we are accustomed to at Piccolo Arancio. Rather than going to each diner and pouring oil on the bread plate (after asking if person wanted oil) she stood at table put oil on plate, and reached in front of people to place bread plate. Did same with wine. Opened bottles and reached in front of diner to get wine glass; fill it and reach back over to put near diner.
Needs much more training to meet Piccolo Arancio standards. Don't want her to wait on us again
Piccolo Arancio is FABULOUS! Quite simply it is the best restaurant in the FARMINGTON Valley! We love it! One of the reasons we love it is Russell! He is an exceptional server! Knowledgeable, accommodating, listening to your wants and needs, attentive, respectful... Great service!
Smart, sophisticated service. High quality food. Great menu, great cocktails
Great restaurant, great food and great service. Would recommend this restaurant to absolutely everyone. Top notch is an understatement. Please make a visit, you surely won’t be disappointed. We loved it, you will too! Mary, our waitress, added to our experience. Just perfect!
My dinner was okay. I asked to swap out the potatoes for a green vegetable so they simply doubled the green beans that came with the cod I ordered. There was no artistic quality to the food but it was edible. My friend ordered skirt steak and could not eat it. She brought it home for her dog. Dessert was good-a chocolate lava-type item with ice cream.
Categorization as “high end Italian” is highly overrated.
Mary, our server, was attentive and efficient. Noticed immediately that steak ordered med rare was very rare, and she corrected it.
However, Risotto dish appeared to be simply rice. Florescent lighting and lack of candles diminished the experience. Not quite the Valentines Day dinner I was expecting.
Solid service and a wonderful menu - compliments to the chef
The kitchen “lost our ticket” so our food took twice as long as it should have. Most restaurants would acknowledge their mistake and offer an appetizer, drinks, anything, while we waited for them to correct their mistake. However, the restaurant offered nothing while we waited and waited and waited. This is the definition of poor customer service.
Always love this place. Typical issues with dining on a “holiday” (Valentines day). Should have been better prepared.
A bit slow on the service, order was wrong, etc. Usually terrific, so I will try again. Disappointing after several great meals.
Amazing food, wonderful service and nice touches for Valentine's Day. Been here a number of times and will always keep them in my top 10 list.
Valentine’s dinner date with my husband
The best restaurant in Farmington.................by far!!! Chef/Owner Sal and server Seth made my business dinner perfect!
Great food straight out of Italy by a chef from Rome. Best Italian food in CT. You get what you pay for, good quality and good cooked food is worth the cost. Great Italian wine and dessert selection. Try the whole made lemincello
The food, service, and the ambiance were all good at Piccolo Arancio. I would certainly dine there again!
No better Italian restaurant around. Wait staff is knowledgeable about what is in the entrees and how it is prepared. Chef is second to none.
Seth was our server, who was outstanding. We had guests from Boston and wanted to show a nice evening. Success ! Nice portions , well prepared. Thanks again , staff
Great food always!
The service and the ambiance was amazing!
Food was excellent. Great service from a knowledgeable waitress. The entrees and appetizers were delicious and a great value.
Although I have not visited it in some time, Piccolo Arancio is always a treat. My salmon lunch was cooked to perfection and was accompanied by a medley of fresh haricot verts, slender pieces of carrot and zucchini, and steamed perfectly. Our server was excellent, informing us of specials, answering questions, and checking on us just the right amount. I'll be back sooner rather than later!
Exceptional service and delicious Italian fare! The homemade gnocchi was amazing!
Great like always.
This was a birthday dinner for 3 women in their 70’s/80’s. I had advised the restaurant both through Open Table and upon arrival of that fact. After a long and expensive dinner, those birthdays went unacknowledged. Given that I spent over $250, exclusive of tip, even a simple cupcake with a candle would have sufficed. This was a tacky move and I doubt that I shall be back.
Swordfish was expensive and mediocre. While tasty, it was tough. The course was also quite expensive. A $27 luncheon entree should be exquisite. This swordfish was definitely not that. In sum, lunch was a severe disappointment.
Another fine dining experience. Great beef carpaccio, seafood sampler and entres. Desert was great too. Prescot did an expecially good job serving us. Took great pains with my 9 year old grandaughter. A wonderful experience.
OUTSTANDING Service and Food! Always so satisfied eating here. Russell as our server is THE best in the industry and the food amazing!! We always have such a wonderful evening here. Thank you!!
Scrumptious Scallops!!! The Pan Seared Scallops were Sensational! They were the best I have ever had the pleasure of eating. They came to the table hot and the sautéed spinach awas piping hot as well - just perfect! This is an outstanding restaurant!!!
Another great night. The drinks, food and company were all fantastic.
Returned after a5 year hiatus. Remains as good as remembered. Carefully prepared with no shortcuts.
A New, Summery, Delicious Drink!!! On the Specials Menu, there is a Brand new entry worth noting and ordering! It is a White Port and Tonic with a touch of lemon! It is refreshing, light, and very delicious..: served over ice to Jaleel it cold and crisp!!! It takes you to Portugal on a summer evening.... Try it... You might just find yourself a new Favorite Summer Sip!! The rest of our dinner was delicious too... but this Summer Drink made the experience!!!
Excellent food! Outstanding service! Thank you Russell for a great night!!
Marvelous Maine Mussels!!! This appetizer was on the Specials of the day Menu! If it appears again...We will definitely order them again. We highly recommend you do too! They were large and meaty. They were very tasty. The light cream saffron sauce was delicious. My husband said it was the best sauce that he ever had with Mussels! The combination was perfect! The rest of the meal was wonderful too! I want your focus on those mussels though so I will end this review here!
Crisps!!!! Rhubarb Crisp!! This is one wonderful Dessert!!! I like Fruit Desserts ... and Crisps are my favorite... with that as a background, I must share that this rhubarb crisp is perfect in my very experienced opinion.! F you see it on the Specials Menu, I highly recommend ordering it... I ordered it with a blackberry gelato .... Fabulous!!! The rest of our meal was great too, but I wanted to highlight this dessert for you!
Swordfish, Salmon, Tuna.... wonderful Seafood! If you think that you must get pasta at an Italian Restaurant, I want to encourage you to consider the wonderful seafood dishes at Piccolo Arancio... Simply Grilled or Sautéed or Roasted or Baked ... all preparations are available and each one is done perfectly... My salmon, my Husband’s Swordfish, our friend’s Tuna were all delicious and different and a delight to savor.... so go for Fish sometime soon at Piccolo Arancio!
Simply Sensational Salads!!! Highlighting the salads at this visit to Piccolo Arancio! We tried many different salads tonight!!! The Roasted Beet Salad, the Chopped Salad, the Caesar Salad , and the House Salad. All wee wonderful! The Roasted Beets were warm and served with asparagus, apple, goat cheese and dressed perfectly... Yummy! The chopped salad had many lovely veggies finely chopped, a wonderful dressing and sliced almonds... nutritious and delicious!! The Caesar Salad was classic with shaved Parmesan .... a grand example of how Caesar should be! The House Salad was nice and light and perfect for the smaller appetite. Everyone was most pleased with their choice. Make sure you have a Salad at Piccolo Arancio and get adventurous with your choice!!! ENJOY!!!
