Piccolo came into existence in 2010 because our wine store customers were looking for a place of their own to share a bottle, a beer, and a laugh or two. We came to realize that what we created (together) was a pretty special place – a little off the beaten path with an atmosphere that is intimate, but certainly not stuffy – that is both light, and lively. It’s a come as you are, stay as long as you like kind of place; but come see for yourself.
Our wine and beer choices are totally driven by the likes of our customers (as well as our wine room staff!). While we have our favorites on the chalkboards, we’re always adding seasonal specials to complement our selections. And if there is a wine you just can’t do without, in all likelihood you can find it at our Village Wines retail store and we’ll gladly open it for you (a modest corkage fee is charged).
Food, You Say?
One thing that makes us unique is our thoughtful approach to food. We always offer charcuterie boards that will pair well with beer or wine, and Wednesday through Saturday we offer a set seasonal menu with one rotating weekly special. Our chef is experienced at pairing food with both wine and beer and enjoys the opportunity to use fresh, local ingredients that create a palate pleasing experience.
KITCHEN HOURS: Wed-Sat (5pm-9pm)
Kyle Eberlein was born and raised in Cincinnati. After traveling the country and Caribbean as a musical theatre actor, he decided it was time to come home and be closer to family (literally). Although Kyle has a degree in Musical Theatre, he has a hospitality management background, managing multiple Broadway theatre bars for over 6 years. Behind the bar his desire is simple, create a warm environment that makes people want to come back to.
He has always been fascinated and interested by food, wine and beer; especially how they pair and compliment each other. But what his theatre training has provided most is being able to connect and listen to others. He feels that listening and connecting with other is the foundation to building long lasting relationships behind and in front of the bar.
Kyle is a music, theatre and sports lover and still travels to perform on cruise ships occasionally.
Kevin Wilhelm moved to Glendale in March of 2008 and quickly became involved in the community, such as including his house on that year’s holiday home tour, assisting with the summer concert series, and cofounding the National Historic Pub Crawl.
From certified public accountant to community center president, his résumé is packed with experiences irrelevant to working at a wine bar. A few of Kevin’s many interests include traveling, broomball, music, and employee discounts.
In addition to being our third-best bartender, Kevin hosts our Music Trivia events, created the Proseccolo, and is Piccolo’s unofficial head of promotions.
Piccolo Wine Room Gift Certificates are available in any denomination and may also be used at Village Wines of Glendale. Certificates are at the store.
