We started our meal with this lovely first course of lox on toast with tomatoes. It was perfect. The lox was light, neither salty nor oily. It's definitely the best lox I've ever had.
I decided to stick with fish and ordered Piccolino's excellent Seared Tuna Salad as my main course. I requested "no extra salt," and it too was perfect. And there was so much food, I had them pack the leftovers, which I cooked up the next day with cabbage. So I got an extra meal out of it.
The quality of the food in Piccolino is extraordinary, and the prices are comparable to the chains and even less than some of the other popular dairy restaurants. My only problem in Piccolino is that I end up eating too much, especially foods that can add weight. Nu, you must be wondering about the "birthday treat."
They came in with a lit sparkler in a generous slice of Tiramisu and singing Happy Birthday! It was perfect, and we shared it.
I definitely recommend Piccolino, whether for an everyday meal or something much more special. They have rooms for events, too.
