This highly acclaimed restaurant located near the Venice boardwalk, offers exceptional Italian cuisine in a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. For Dine LA, they are offering a 5 course meal for only $45 (not including beverage, tax or tip). On their current menu they offer a 4 course tasting menu for $50, and a 6 course tasting menu for $80, so 5 courses for $45 is a good deal for what should be a great meal. The regular menu items will also be available. The 2013 Zagat Guide gives Piccolo a 28 for food, a 25 for decor, and a 26 for service (scores of 26 - 30 mean "Extrodinary to Perfection").
