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...

Visited a few weekends ago with the Mrs. Was considering Pizza Express but I decided I'd give this place a whirl. I think its fair to say that it wasn't a bad decision. Piccolos exceeded my expectations in terms of quality, I had some form of ragout, it was lovely. Only problem I had with the meal was not the... More

Not a great experience I am afraid. Service was slow, waited for drinks and made repeat requests, calzone was burnt on top, another pasta dish was under cooked. Not good enough for the prices charged.

Visited on Saturday night, we had pre-booked a table and had a drink in the bar beforehand. The bellinis we ordered were fantastic - the peach in them tasted so fresh. Ate on the terrace which I think is one of the best bits about the restaurant - there are blankets and heaters so even in January it is lovely!... More
