In the lexicon of Sullivan County for over 20 years, the word ‘Piccolo’ has held a special place and meaning. Like many beloved restaurants, Piccolo Paese Ristorante Italiano became just its first name and using it that way meant many things. Part clubhouse for the who’s who, part celebration destination for important moments in life and part social beacon, Piccolo has been more than just a normal Italian-American restaurant. Though on that standard alone it can hold its weight with any other.
Founded in 1998 by Baco Vulaj, Executive Chef, Piccolo was brought into a new chapter of life in 2019 when Kirsten and Sims Foster of Foster Supply Hospitality took over ownership & operations of the restaurant with one condition – that Baco stay on as the beloved Executive Chef and still be in the kitchen cooking his classics that bring guests back and back again. With a brand new interior design and a menu that embraced Piccolo’s history while also adding fresh new categories, Piccolo put down new roots for what we hope to be another 20 years of great hospitality and deliciousness. At least.
