Started with placing us inside after we booked an outside table, got our drinks order wrong THREE times, got the food order wrong, there was a hair in the food and then they accused us of not paying! Very awkward atmosphere and abrupt staff.

Came for lunch and ate from the lunch menu rather than the a la carte. Food was refreshingly good after eating some run of the mill Italian food recently. Lunch menu was quite simple and classic. Prawns starter was lovely. Nicest and best cooked prawns...More

Experience the flavour, style, colour and charm of modern Italy at this truly outstanding Piccolino restaurant and bar. Located on Ashley Road in the attractive village of Hale, the restaurant features a fine dark wood exterior that is sure to turn heads, whilst the covered al fresco terrace is the perfect location to enjoy a relaxing drink or bite to eat with friends. Beyond the glass doors, vibrant green leather upholstery is combined with striking black marble table tops, inviting mirrors and sleek wooden finishes to create a contemporary style and atmosphere that is always welcoming, relaxed and informal. Upstairs, the chefs work passionately in the open kitchen, whilst the sight of fresh pasta being made from scratch each and every day provides a delightful visual spectacle for guests as they enjoy the great tastes of Italy.
