I adore this place so much and it ignited a long standing love affair with everything Italian especially the food. It's the closest I've got to food as delicious as in Italy itself. It's very authentic with an easy atmosphere inside. Cosy decor and a view into the kitchen. The house wines are lovely and we often have a carafe... More

Always wanted to try this place. Lovely ambiance and most of the food good. Fair to say our main courses very good, Husband had lasagne and I had chicken in lemon lime and mushroom sauce. Very generous portions and delicious, Restaurant packed, always a good sign though disappointed. No fish dishes on main menu and only potatoes and salad with... More

A crowd of 14 of us embarked on a super evening in this little gem of an eatery. Good wholesome food and the service was great considering the number of us. Everyone enjoyed it.

Let's start by being fair. The young lady who served us was very good. She deserves to work somewhere better. The first thing that strikes you is the menu. You can have any meat you like (as long as it's steak or chicken) and you can have anything with it (as long as it's salad). Seeing as it's October, I'm... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with excellent food and service. The restaurant is very popular and you are probably best reserving a table.

This restaurant ticks all the boxes for ambience but sorry, foodwise it just does not deliver. Looks nice from the outside and when you get in there you get a friendly greeting. From there it goes a bit downhill. The fillet steak was probably the most gristly chewy fillet I have ever come across. The peppercorn sauce was watery and... More

Found this great little place while searching for somewhere to eat. The decor reminds me of a typical italian restaurant . The staff were very nice and friendly. The food was very tasty and service was efficient. The price was very reasonable £34 for 2 x starters, 2 x mains, 2 x sweets and a beer and wine.

I would recommend this as a very intermit resturaunt with excellant service and food. Maybe not the cheapest but well worth a visit. The only draw back is that you have to book as it very popular. But dont stop this as a draw back as there are times you can drop in and still get a table. Be aware... More

I've been to Piccolo a lot of times to catch up with friends or family and every time I have NEVER been disappointed with the food! There is such a big selection of wonderful Italian meals to choose from and all at such low prices! And even though it's a cheap dinner, the food is excellent and flavoursome! This is... More
