There are several "Piccolino" restaurants in Manchester: I went to the one in West Didsbury. Although the prices are slightly high, the food is very good. They make Italian dishes cooked and served properly. I definitely recommend it.

Great welcome for families. Classy Italian with excellent food. Although expensive, quality is high. Staff are great when they are not too busy. So better afternoon for families earlier in the day. Watch out as heavy in the chilli in some dishes.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was great. Couldn't fault the meal or the service. The decor was good too. We thoroughly enjoyed this meal and we will definitely be back. Will also try other Piccolino's now.
