Welcome to “Piccolo Ristorante”, which in Italian translates to “little restaurant”.

Chef Andres has curated a menu of exquisite flavors that can't be found anywhere else. From excellent personal service to delicious food and wine pairings, it will prove to be a memorable evening at Piccolo Ristorante. Make your reservations now!


Benvenuto a Piccolo Ristorante!

From the very beginning, it has been our goal to provide our guests with an exquisite dining experience; from the food, wine to the five-star service in a quiet and intimate setting, much like you would find all over Europe.  Finding the perfect name to reflect our concept was a bit difficult at first, but after a few versions, we came across “Piccolo”, which in Italian means “small” – PERFECT!  

“You eat with your eyes first” is a very common saying in the culinary world, and one that Chef Andres takes to heart.  When creating a dish, he takes into careful consideration the flavor profiles of each ingredient as well as the final overall presentation, all with the goal being to provide the guest with a delectable dish that is also a work of art.  When creating our “dining experience” for each guest, 
we envision a lengthy visit over a variety of courses.  One look and taste of each dish presented by Chef Andres and you can see, taste and FEEL his dedication to his work.  

When designing his menu, Chef Andres decided to take a different approach than many Italian Restaurants in Fort Lauderdale.  He decided to focus on Italian classics from a variety of regions in Italy and from there put his own little twist on them.  Make sure to also find out the daily specials – you never know what Chef Andres is creating in the kitchen, from Rabbit Ratatouille, Duck Confit and Lionfish to a decadent Chocolate dessert surprise!  

From our “Piccolo” family to yours  ~  Buon apettito y grazie!
