after a 20 year career in westchester government, capping off his career as a city commissioner & following that up as a lobbyist, proprietor, peter j. neglia, fulfilled his life-long dream of opening up his very own restaurant. mr. neglia envisioned a comfortable, inviting restaurant reminiscent of neighborhood trattorias found in his family’s birthplace of rome, italy. his goal was to have a casual restaurant specializing in italian food but didn’t want to be known as “just another italian restaurant.” he wanted to serve high-end, fresh, quality food, using only the finest ingredients, where friends & families would come several times a month, no matter where they are coming from or going to.
so he called on his cousin, executive chef stefano, who has over 25 years of culinary experience, having been trained & schooled in his homeland of rome, italy to carry out his vision. together, they came up with a new & refreshing menu concept where they would have a weekly changing menu designed in the italian roots of simplicity, custom & comfort creating dishes that are traditional while skillfully combining it with a modern flair. our menu concept is simple: quality over quantity.
each week, beginning on friday & running through thursday, mr. neglia & chef stefano come up with 20 new & exciting culinary creations consisting of 5 appetizers, 2 salads, 5 pastas, 5 entrees & 3 desserts including our famous nanny’s ny style cheesecake. all of our pastas, dressings & sauces are housemade & we get our meats, fishes & cheeses on a daily basis from legendary grocers on arthur ave. to provide the freshest & top notch ingredients for you, our valued customer.
in 2017, piccolo was voted 1 of the top 5 ‘best italian restaurants’, ‘best bistro’, ‘best antipasti’& 'best sandwiches'(for our gourmet paninis) in the best of westchester magazine contest & won the open table ‘diners choice award’ for ‘best neighborhood gem restaurant’in the westchester/hudson valley region & ‘best restaurant’ in port chester.
