Default Piccolo’s Closing

Some sad news for us. Piccolo’s in Moultonborough is closing permanently. Last pizzas were sold on Friday and we got one. Delicious as usual. We will also miss the great sandwichs and desserts. Remaining in store items will be sold for a while.

Best of luck to Bill and Andrea.

There is no publicity available information. But I can say it was not for lack of business.

Unhappy Choices for Exceptional Pizza & Sandwiches REDUCED!!!

A more hard-working and dedicated owner operator team you could not find; Andrea said their daily drive from up north (more than an hour each way) had taken a toll along with the lack of help.

We will miss everything about Piccolo's....always sad to see good, honest and genuinely good people close down; on the other hand, hope this move helps them personally, we wish them only the very best in their future endeavors.

No more grape leaves

You will be sorely missed!

Default what a shame

So sorry to hear they are closing. Some of the best pizza I have ever had. Really good bread too. Best of luck to the owners. It was great while it lasted.

Yes to all of the above--they have a real passion for great food, and we were lucky to have them. I hope they are able to open someplace closer to their home

Definitely a tease but a welcome memory for sure. I recall that as the Goodfella, my favorite. We used Piccolo for catering on several occasions and it was always fantastic. On more than one occasion I’d stop by for a slice or sandwich and end up with dessert for lunch.

Takes another option for dinner in the summer. If VK stays closed at night not a lot of options left

Default I thought they had the best pizza in the area

Best of luck to them, always very nice and accommodating. I consider Piccolos a hidden gem!

Default heir apparent

is Gusto right down the street in Center harbor. They have a market right in the back. Not an exact replica of business but def tasty.

Default Will miss Piccolo's

I was so sorry to hear that Piccolo's is closing. They were our go to place for pies and catering and it was a true pleasure to deal with Bill and Andrea. There were many days that I stopped for a slice after a long bike ride. Will truly miss them but I understand how hard it is to stay in business. I hope they can open up a new place nearer to their home. I will support them even from a distance.

I wonder if they will open a new restaurant in North Conway. They used to own one there prior to Picollo's. I figured they had moved when Picollo's opened.
