Hubby & I had lunch at Piccolo on Carlton just west of Parliament on Saturday afternoon. The place has always been empty every time I’ve passed by (okay it was winter) so we were hesitant, but sat down regardless. Are we ever glad we did.
From the small, but well chosen wine list to the complimentary cream cheese filled warm bread, the finely made carbonara sauce with roasted garlic served with perfectly al dente pasta to my penne alla vodka the whole experience was enjoyable.
It’s a pretty room with a small, friendly staff. I believe they’re a warm weather and sunshine filled patio away from doing well. Definitely more neighbourhood resto than destination spot, mind you. I guess we in Cabbagetown can keep it all to ourselves.
