Food was excellent. Atmosphere was excellent. Waiter was "MEH" I would tell you his name, but he didn't introduce himself. He was nice enough, just not very dynamic, and we had to ask another waiter to have our water refilled, and had to ask for a steak knife. all in all, a god dining experience.

It was a good change of place. Old school Italian and well executed dishes. Good house wines and fantastic dessert. Very clean. Great value overall. We’ll be back.

The linguine with clam sauce (red or white) is always a favorite dish and it's great to have a caesars salad made tableside.

Two of my party of 8 sent their food back because of how it tasted. It was taken off the bill, but nobody came out and asked what the problem was, and no compensation was offered. Very disappointing. I made the reservation and felt I had to apologize for the experience. The complaints were made by two ladies who NEVER send food back, but this time they couldn't eat it.

Dinner was delicious as usual. Brought new friends to experience Piccirilli's, as they'd heard raves about this restaurant from mutual friends whom we'd taken there previously. Owned by Italians from Abruzzo region of Italy, fabulous and authentic Italian meals.

Food was very good and our server was great. I live near by and this is the 2nd time I’ve been here. My wife and decided to give it a try after we tried it 15 years ago and did not like any of the food we had. They have made it all better. We will be going back.

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.
