    So-so

    I have eaten here a couple of times and I thought it was a little over-priced for the quality. The food is not awful, but the salad was a little limp both times, and the eggplant parmesan dry.

    Best Kept Secret

    Piccalo is one of Chicago's best kept secrets. We've been going there, bringing friends and clients there for years. The staff is terrific, service is great and food just wonderful. A quiet, fun atmosphere ! We travel 60 miles one way from southern burbs. Signed one of my novels for friend there. Simply a grea place !

    Good 'nuff

    Just as with all other restaurants in Hyde Park, one needs to bear in mind that the ratings are relative. This place provides reliable, decent food at good value. We order take-out from here often and are satisfied with the food. Having eaten at the restaurant a few times, I would say their biggest shortcoming is the wine-- their affordable varieties are not particularly enjoyable, though they do give you a generous serving of the wine. Bottom line: it's a good place for casual dining with food that won't disappoint but don't expect 4-star quality. The Rigatoni alla Carlo and the eggplant and chicken parmagiana top my list of recommendations. Their fried calamari isn't too bad either.

    Solid

    I really like this place, probably my favorite place to get good pasta in hyde park. I typically stick to the pasta dishes hovering around $10, and at this price, I consider it a great value. One of these dishes will fill you up if you're really hungry, or if moderately hungry, will make two meals or one hearty meal and a snack. Honestly, part of what makes this place great is that they really have no other competition in Hyde Park for pasta. The closest is Pizza Capri, but I prefer Piccolo Mondo.

    i won't go back

    Do yourself a favor and skip this place. If you really want to experience this restaurant just overcook a box of spaghetti and poor a jar of sauce on top. Then have a friend drop the dish on your table and walk away for the rest of the night. This was fancy cafeteria food served on cafeteria plates.

    The Best in Hyde Park

    Piccolo Mondo is a great restaurant. The new menu with tapas from Spain is just "exquisito".

    Casual comfort

    First time to visit restaurant based upon friends recommendation. Has a very friendly, neighborhood feel. Tables spaced well apart. Help staff very friendly. Food was very goodnot outstanding but well well worth the very reasonable prices. We will definitly go back again and I have already recommended it to a friend. Parking can be a little tight.
