In 1983, Tom's eldest son, Tom Jr., decided to study Hotel and Restaurant management, following in the footsteps of Tom Sr.'s brother Nick of Compass / Restaurant Associates— another protégé of Teresa and Tom Sr's. Tom Jr. graduated and was fast tracked by Marriott's Management Program, and after about four years of National Marriott training, left as a Food and Beverage Executive to enable Tom Sr. to have some free time and establish some family roots for himself.
This initial expansion was a HUGE success. So much so, that in 1998 Piccolo expanded again both in the size of its main dining area and the size of its private dining room. This expansion, too, has been very successful, allowing the Piccolo team to provide their excellent food and service to an ever-increasing amount of satisfied customers.
Piccolo Ristorante looks forward to serving even more of the community for another 30 years.
