Piccolo Roma Restaurant

Piccolo Roma in Hoboken papered up – closed or renovating?

Noticed yesterday that Piccolo Roma (120 Washington St.) was closed and papered up.

Over the past 20 years – we’ve been there only once. Once was enough for us. Nothing compelling enough for us to be regulars. Wonder what the deal is here?

Anyway – here was a recent online review of the place: “This place baffles me–how are they still open? Food is not good, not made well, and seems old. I went here with my friends years ago and disliked it. Upon seeing it was still open this year, my boyfriend and I gave it a whirl–no change. I don’t understand how they are still operating when it is constantly empty and the food is no where in comparison to other Italian food in the Hoboken and jersey city area. Save your time and money.”

This has got to be the worst Italian in Hoboken! The calamari was flavorless, the salmon was WHITE, and the veal was sooooo dry it was ridiculous!

Has anyone been to Piccolo Roma lately? How has it been? I had a few bad meals there in a row, and had to write it off…but i am thinking about giving it another try. It always looks empty, but i remember some awesome meals there a few years back…if anyone eats there, a few recommendations would be great

I’m in the same boat. I used to go there as regularly as any other restaurant in town but haven’t been back for about a year and a half. The food went from excellent for the price to average before I got two downright bad meals in a row. :-(

I have noticed they’ve hired an attractive young hostess who stands at the gate beckoning you to partake. Hopefully for their sake they’ve hired a new chef, too. I’d be happy to return if things have changed for the better.

I don’t order their cream-based dishes, anymore. Too rich and too much! Did like their lighter fare, like shrimp in Garlic olio (or something like that) and vegetable dishes, though.

I haven’t eaten at this place in a long time. Sorry to hear the food has gone downhill.

Mooshu…I picture you as having a shape like an enlarged bowling pin….You comment on just about every eatery that’s posted….Do you work for Zagat’s ?

I cook. I bake. I enjoy food. If that makes me a 900-lb journalist who needs the help of a crane to get her out of bed each morning, so be it. Think of me what you wish.

The last time I ate here was abour 3 years ago and the food was pretty bad back then. Everything was flavorless. So many other better options for Italian elsewhere in town, or even on that block.
