I went for a family dinner last weekend and I was very impressed with both service and food. While me and my partner were eating a member of the staff took our child see the chef making the pizzas and he loved it! Food was so delish, bruschetta was great value for money, and the ranger Valley steak a bit... More

Been here last weekend and I must say that I am become addicted to this place! The staff is always very friendly, it was was very busy but the food and service were spot on! The bruschetta crab was very yummy! Must try it!

Food was sent out wrong, waiter was told about this and didn't offer to change the meal. After the meal we were told by the manager they knowingly sent the food out wrong but it was because the chef read the check wrong? Dessert was also sent back 3 times because it was cold. Manager did sort our bill which... More

We were regular customers at Piccolino and always enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service was always spot on! We expected the same level of hospitality on our last visit, but were very disappointed. Service was slow, we had to chase our drink orders a few times, water has never arrived and we had to ask for it again. This was... More

Visited on a Friday evening with family who live locally. First time we had tried Piccolino and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and the waitress was really jovial and helpful. It is more expensive than other restaurants in the area, but the food was certainly worth it. Would suggest it's a special occasion venue, rather than a place... More

Went with a group of friends on Friday night. I've never been to a Piccolino before and given how disappointing many of the recent ones are, I was regretting my commitment and considered cancelling. I'm glad I didn't! There is a nice heated terrace with doors to keep the heat in, and the restaurant has a lovely vaulted ceiling and... More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and solid food on offer. Fish always tastes fresh, pizza is straight out of the pizza oven and the pasta is as good as you would expect. The out door heated space now offers more space and a nice atmosphere in the cooler months.

First visit to this particular Piccolino having been to the restaurant in Manchester a handful of times (pre-refurb). I can't say I was ever wowed by the experience there, so I didn't have particularly high hopes for this one. The greeting when we arrived was lukewarm and there seemed to be some confusion, despite the fact we'd booked a table.... More

I had booked the restaurant for my husband's surprise 30th Birthday on Saturday 11th February 2017. As the previous reviewer has mentioned, there was absolutely no care taken for special birthdays at all, and found the service really poor. Yes, the staff were friendly, but that was about it really - unless you speak Italian, you won't get anywhere. We... More

I booked a surprise lunch for a 50th birthday last Friday - the place was fairly empty and the food was perfectly nice but it's the service which is average - it was clear this was a special occasion but no fuss made or anything given as a thoughtful gesture e.g chocolates with coffee or a limoncello at the end...
