Having visited twice in quick succession I was left a little disappointed with the quality of the waiting staff. We were hosting clients and on two separate occasions on separate evenings the client has had to ask for drinks nearly three times. On the last occasion a desert towards the end of the evening was forgotten. The food however was... More

Have we had a change of management ? Today was a bad experience of this Italian restaurant. To my surprise of our meal being delivered my husband was appalled by the way our Pizza was put together, runny, tomato was of a liquid consistency which led to a soggy base, and 4 dollops of cheese for a margarita!!! Poor poor... More

Visited Piccolinos in Bristol after a really good experience we had at the Piccolino restaurant in Liverpool. But oh dear, the Bristol experience was so different and not in a good way. Firstly it is noisy, thumping music more night club than restaurant. Maybe I'm getting old but part of an evening out is to talk and relax over the... More

Had a lovely meal here on a Saturday evening, both the food and service was very good although they had run out of quite a few things that were on the menu which was a bit of a surprise as our booking was for 6 o'clock. The food is certainly not cheap although very good quality.

If you're looking for a good choice of food in Bristol give this place a try. The menu is vast and reasonably priced, Atmosphere is good and staff are friendly. There's outdoor seating with heaters, so if you fancy dining outside in the winter it's possible.

Visited here first time, the venue is right next to Harvey Nichols in Cabot Circus with outside dining under heaters or inside which is what went for as possibly a bit chilly outside. The service was slow and the staff all seemed to have their own roles to play, so when I got fed up waiting for drinks and summoned... More

Delicious high quality food, very fresh and fantastic wine selection too! Bit pricey but i guess you would expect it somewhere like this. Just one question... why the bright green?! Would you consider something a bit more demure?

We went for Valentine's Day, we were greeted with a smile and sat down. The waitress was friendly and left us a good amount of time to choose. The food was nice, and reasonably priced. Only thing I would have changed was to not have been sat next to a table with 3 young, loud children.

Good location right off Cabot Circus near Marriott. Food better than expected. Good bar dining. Staff attentive. Priced right. Has great outdoor table area across from park if weather is warm.

Thank B R

Piccolino in Bristol captures the spirit of Italy with its great food, unrivalled style and vibrant, charming character. Located in the striking new development of Cabot Circus, Piccolino is enhanced by its own equally eye-catching exterior, together with a delightful al fresco terrace that is the perfect place to take a break from shopping and enjoy a relaxing drink or bite to eat with friends. Once inside, the vibrant green leather upholstery, striking black marble table tops and sleek wooden finishes ensure a contemporary style and bold design with a smart yet informal atmosphere. Meanwhile, the chefs work passionately in the open kitchen, creating every dish with care and precision, whilst the sight of fresh pasta being made from scratch is a delightful spectacle for you to watch whilst enjoying modern and classic Italian cuisine.
