Located in the main square in the small village of Biot, this restaurant offers a typical French cuisine with specials of the day that tend to be a bit upscale, (the restaurant has its own pastry chef). With duck as the special of the day, we opted for salads which were very nice. The tomato salad was comprised of several... More

We picked the day of the annual sale (like a huge car boot sale). Biot is a delightful village perched on a hill. The weather was lovely and so was the atmosphere. A street-side table was ideal for this fun event and we enjoyed beautiful salads. The service was a little off-hand at times but the servers were very busy.

Great location is spoilt by one miserable English waitress. Food not really suitable for kids but there seems to be a sister restaurant attached to it. Wouldn't know though as the waitress didn't really engage so just had drinks there on a few occasions only because it is good for people watching

Had a fantastic lunch...lovely Rose wine served in a nice big glass...delicious food. Family of 5 - we all ate different things and all of it excellent. Great service with a smile...in English or French. Olives and crisps served with the aperitif without being asked. The desserts were to die for! Fabulous mains. Excellent from start to finish. The new... More

Putting the lack of service aside and the huge wait for the food to arrive, the real issue is that they not only served completely raw sections of chicken in the Caesar Salad, but did not really care, of even bother showing any surprise, when it was pointed out. To some extent things can go wrong in any restaurant, and... More

First review of a restaurant I've eaten in numerous times now. We usually try and escape for an afternoon in Biot while the kids are with the grandparents. We invariably end up eating here. Choice of inside or outside seating, really great service and a really good menu. Traditional french cuisine with a few Italian standards thrown in. House wine... More

The Piccolo has been a part of our lives for around 18 years. Sadly no longer owned by Nicola this restaurant has less than professional service and left us waiting to order pre lunch drinks for 40 minutes at a table uncleared from previous customers. Friends were seated and served whilst we were ignored. Eventually we were served but our... More

It was a very hot day when we were in Biot and we were looking forward to sitting down and having lunch. We had to find a gluten free option for our daughter which isn't easy in France. After some rough French and managing to ascertain what was gluten free we had a fabulous lunch, infact one of the best... More

I ate @ Piccolo with family and friends the other evening. The staff were downright rude, the food was horrible in an overpriced and soulless setting.
