"Domenic [Branduzzi] opened Piccolo Forno in March 2005. He trained as a pizzaiolo at Regina Margherita under Roberto Caporuscio. Prior to that he spent much of his youth working at his parents' bakery in the Strip. Shortly after the passing of [his father] Antonio and the closing of the bakery in 2008, [his mother] Carla joined Domenic in the kitchen at the Lawrenceville location. Together in the kitchen, Domenic and Carla work to re-create traditional Tuscan dishes in the form of wood-fired pizzas and fresh hand-made pastas."

"To see evidence of Lawrenceville's transformation, look no farther than Piccolo Forno, a sleek, modern eatery brimming with fresh flavors and charm."
- Kimberly Palmiero, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
