Food was excellent. Portions a little small for the price.

This is a gourmet Italian restaurant! Went here based upon a recommendation and am glad. Most of the review parameters are based upon WHAT DAY and TIME OF DAY of the visit.; as such, visiting on a Tuesday in the OFF SEASON really makes a big difference only in the AMBIANCE criteria. A reviewing website for tourists rated this establishment as #27 out of 160 restaurants in the area; and it met my expectations as being one of the better eateries I have
been to in a long time. I DO recommend a visit: you wont be disappointed. My menu pick was the Chef's recommendation: Steak Diane (cooked table side) --> AWESOME dinner! Four in party ordered dessert (everyone ordered different) ALL were absolutely delicious. Like I said: you wont be disappointed. The only thing keeping me from allowing that fifth star is that the tables are a bit too close together for my liking.... but that's me. GO! EAT! ENJOY!

All four of us loved our dinners, but the hit of the night was the mascarpone cheesecake. Oh my goodness, the best cheesecake any of us have ever eaten.

This was my second time at Piccirilli's and my husband's and our friends first time. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They make a great Caesar salad although even though the menu says the Caesar Salad is made tableside, they were not doing that the night we were there. It was still very good. Our server Frank was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. It you're looking for good, authentic Italian, give Piccirilli's a try.

I took my wife here for our anniversary. We were greeted by the manager or owner right when we arrived, and he seated us next to the fireplace. My wife was impressed that he pulled her chair out for her. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Very romantic setting. Food was cooked just right with big flavors and textures. Or evening was relaxing and we enjoyed the food!

This was our first visit, and we will likely come back. The service was excellent and the food was good. We arrived at 6:30pm on a Friday night and were surprised that the place was not at all crowded. Normally this might be cause for concern...but not in this case. The atmosphere is dark and cozy...although some may view the décor a bit dated. I happened to like the atmosphere because it felt nostalgic.

Overall...very pleasant dining experience.

The restaurant was very nice the waiter was fine. We go to the restaurant about 5 times a year, at Christmas we always bring 8 friends for dinner it has always been great food. This year we were very disappointed with the food, not one of the dishes were good. The veal was tuff not much if it on the plate and What Italian restaurant serves cabbage as a vegetable. Two of us had rollata it was very dry and you could see grill marks on it like it was reheated. The veal Parmesan was also dry. After waiting about 50 min to an hour for the food it was all lukewarm. Not a good experience. Everyone said we have to start looking for a new restaurant to go. We were all very disappointed hopefully you can correct some of the problems in the kitchen.

Piccirilli’s was a favorite spot when we last lived in MI 18 years ago. We went recently after moving back to the area and it was wonderful. Friendly service, the food is as good as ever and it was great to see the same owner still greeting each table in the restaurant.
piccirili is still our local favorite and look forward to visiting again soon.

We love the atmosphere there. There are some unique items on the menu, especially the Rolanda. The appetizer plate could of had more vegetables on it. The martinis were a bit puny. The pasta was a bit salty. But otherwise, it was a delightful meal.

Ambience was very nice. The food was delicious. Done exactly to order. We were there for an early dinner. Unfortunately, we had a sour server. He didn't engage with us at all. We tried our best to lighten him up but to no avail. I took away another star away for never checking after serving us. We were his only table. The other two servers were very friendly with their customers. We will go back.

Service was terrible. We had to keep flagging the waiter over to our table and he didn't seem to be familiar with the menu or specials. He told us an item wasn't available when it was right on the menu. He never came by to ask if we wanted another cocktail - again, we had to flag him down. We had a party of seven and when we requested three separate checks, he said he couldn't do it because we didn't tell him when he took our orders - even tho he never asked. The manager came by and was very rude and told us the same thing. After arguing, they finally agreed but said it would take a while. One of the people in our party ordered a name brand Vodka and it definitely was not - although they charged him for it. We will never go back.

I decided to try this restaurant on the spur of the moment based on a suggestion from Open Table. While it was a bit of a drive from my house, I figured that the previous reviews made it worth trying. The minute we walked in we were made to feel welcome and the ambience and fireplace made the restaurant very attractive. The food was classic Italian done well and everything came to the table hot. I especially enjoyed the calamari appetizer which was crisp, not overly bread calamari that were not overcooked and rubbery.

I have been going here for at least 30 years when I was in high school. I have since introduced my husband and daughter to it. We live on the other side of town but it is destination dining. Umberto's table-side Caesar salad alone is worth the trip. Their pasta puttanesca is excellent. My mother had a veal special that I would go back for in a minute! This is relaxed dining; you could come in for a regular dinner or you could sit and dine for hours...a very comfortable atmosphere. Portion sizes are satisfying, allowing you to enjoy maybe more than one course without feeling like a glutton or forcing you to leave with a doggy bag (more like you would expect in Italy). Umberto, the owner, seems to always be there and always plays an active role. Everytime, we leave here satisfied, relaxed and happy.

It started off disappointing. We were sat and waited 8 minutes for someone to even come to us. You could tell the server was never told she had a table. There were about 4 other tables there and one was talking so loud, it was like she was sitting right next to us telling her story. And she was across the restaurant.
We came for our 8year anniversary, and Stephanie was our server and she turned the experience around and made it so much better.
We've never been there before, we live in Saint Clair shores area and we were out that way planning our wedding and they were top 2 places when I looked up a place to eat.
We will definitely come back with our family.
The lasagna was the best dish I've ever had anywhere.
