When people think of NH fine dining, vegetables are not typically the food item that pops into mind. However, June 17th is around the corner, and you know what that means. It’s National Eat Your Vegetables Day. Who knew, right? At Piccola Italia, we’re proud to offer our guests a range of authentic Italian meals for any taste – including those packed with veggies. Here is a look a just a few of our favorites.

Eggplant Alla Parmigiana

What better way to eat your veggies than breaded, pan-fried and topped with the freshest ingredients. From our homemade marinara to freshly grated parmigiano, romano, and mozzarella cheeses, this classic meal will surely hit the spot.


Butternut Squash Ravioli

If the day calls for pasta, our handmade butternut squash ravioli should do the trick. Our chefs combine the freshest local squash to craft this unbeatable experience. Topped with sauteed chicken and pancetta gently combined in a Frangelico cream sauce and a touch of cinnamon, your tastebuds will be thanking you.


Specialty Insalata

And, of course, when it comes to vegetables there is always the option of a salad. However, at Piccola, our specialty salads take ‘salad’ to an entirely new level. Begin with your protein: seasoned chicken, sirloin steak, jumbo shrimp, or scallops. Then, choose your vegetable: Caesar or a traditional green salad, steamed or sauteed vegetable. Combine the two options, and you’re good to go! A lighter choice that is packed with vegetables and satisfying flavor.

Penne Primavera

Another beloved classic is Piccola’s penne primavera. This dish combines the freshest available mixed vegetables, sauteed in our homemade marinara and fresh garlic. For a kick, ask your server about options to spice things up!



Veggies on the side.

Perhaps the day just isn’t one that requires the mixture of vegetables into the dish. We get it, which is why Picolla has various side dish options. From steamed and sauteed broccoli to asparagus aglio e olio, steamed mixed vegetables, and sauteed spinach – our chefs have National Eat Your Vegetables Day covered.
