Piccolo Ristorante, meaning "little restaurant," serves traditional Italian specialties from all across Italy. Owned by chef Andres Avayú and his wife, Alison, the spot opened its doors on East Commercial Boulevard in September, 2013. With just 30 seats, dim lighting, and deep-red walls with brick accents, the setting is warm and intimate. The menu includes three salads ($10 to $12), such as the pear with baby rucola (with sliced apples, pears, spiced pecans and Brie). There are five entrées to choose from ($9 to $15), like the crab cake tower with avocado relish. Four house specialties ($18 to $24) might include homemade pastas like the gnocchi with four cheese cream sauce, poached pear, and nutmeg, or a constantly rotating selection of ravioli. The space may be little, but the food is great.
