Hands down the best Italian food delivery in the Murray Hill/Flatiron/Gramery/Midtown East area.
All the pastas/noodles are homeade, and it makes a huge difference. Rather than getting the usual pre-cooked, boil-and-serve Ronzoni type noodles you get at most other pasta/pizza places, Piccolo serves up real, dense, perfectly al dente/chewy penne, linguine, and others. The sauces are also very good, though I recommend keeping some crushed red pepper or parmesan cheese on hand at home to flavor to your liking.
The tiramisu is fantastic as well, though it appears to have shrunk slightly in size since the first time I ordered it - still worth it though.
Delivery is always very quick, and located on a nice block if you want to pick-up as well. And if you do decide to go pick-up, the staff is always very friendly and will accomodate you if you have any special requests or needs.
Recommended dishes - spaghetti with meatballs, linguine bolognese, tiramisu.

Best calzone I've ever had. However, the "10-piece chicken tenders" were actually five pieces cut in half! Literally, five tenders sliced vertically in half, to make 10. Beware the 20 piece - you might get quarters!
This is a wonderful place to eat at/in--but people should know it's also a great place to order from. The pizzas are the best around. That may not sound like high praise coming from Carnegie Hill--but they'd hold up anywhere.

Food arrived super fast. Decent, cheap Italian. Good garlic knots, minestrone. Try a super cute micro panini. Pass on the cannoli if you a fan of the ricotta filling- tastes like it's filled with frosting.

This place gets a bad rap for some reason - I don't know why.
It's perfect for so many reasons. The food is almost always consistently decent, the delivery is quick, and they always listen to the special instructions. Friendly service if you call/delivery guys are always pleasant. This is not some gourmet Italian place, but it serves its purpose for a weeknight dinner, 3am drunk run, or a really hung over mozzarella stick craving.
