Giovanni Paolini's goal was to open a truly authentic Italian restaurant in Manchester, NH. "We wanted to build a place that represented what we envisioned as Italian cuisine. A place where people could come to eat, enjoy their surroundings and feel right at home. "We treat every customer as a family member so we invite you to experience Piccola Italia Ristorante today!"
