“Best Stuffed Artichokes/Ask For More Bread 4 Sopping Up The Juice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

No matter what we order here we know we can expect tons of flavor. On our last visit we had the linguini and clam sauce, stuffed artichokes, chicken scarpariello and baked clams. All of which had plenty of delicious sauce which we mopped up with italian bread. This is a great place to go if you are with a large party. I'm sure its just as nice for a couple but unless your sharing you will most likely be going home with a HUGE doggie bag as the portions are on the large side.

“Nice Rehearsal Dinner Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had a rehearsal dinner for 32 at Steve's Piccola Italian restaurant on a week night. A full meal, including salad, seafood appetizers, choice of entrée, wine and dessert was $45 each. The appetizer plate of stuffed clams, shrimp, and calamari was well received and the veal marsala entrée and dessert trio (éclair/tiramisu,cream cake) were pretty good. The not so great were the chicken parmigiana entrée, which was a little tough and bland, and the premade salads all came with too much of the same too sweet salad dressing.

They were accommodating and sat us all in one corner of the restaurant in a horseshoe. We weren't in a private room, and other tables were nearby, but it was still a nice atmosphere. Although we made the reservation months in advance, the service was very rushed, as if they didn't have enough waiters.

All in all, we enjoyed sitting together and celebrating. They allowed us to stay from 7PM to close, without hurrying us out the door.

“Just Great Italian Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We have been to Steve's Piccola in Syosset several times and always love the meals there.
Last Saturday night we decided to go out to eat but did not have a reservation anywhere. In Syosset or Woodbury you can rarely get in anywhere on a Saturday night with out one. Since Steve's does not take reservations, we decided to give it a shot. We walked in and although it was crowded, got seated right away. We have a Caesar salad that was out of this world, Veal Piccata that was quite good, and Angle Hair Bolognese that was fantastic!!!! If you want a good meal with good sized portions, Steve's Piccolo is the place for you!
