Il Piccolino Ristorante was an Italian restaurant located in Little Italy in Ottawa, Ontario. Unfortunately, the restaurant is now closed but it was a favorite spot in Little Italy for many. Located on 449 Preston Street, the restaurant offered bold flavors in "the little house with the beautiful patio in front". Il Piccolino (meaning "the very little one") was located two blocks from Dows Lake in a small house fronted by a beautiful, sun-filled patio. In additio to the great food, it was known for it's intimate dining room that was both colorful and casual. Made-to-order menu selections included hearty pasta, innovative pizza, antipasti and meat and fish entrees.
While Il Piccolino is no longer open to the public, you can continue to support the "Il" family by visiting their Il Primo Restaurant at 371 Preston St in Ottawa.
