Good food, quickly made, we ordered three pasta dishes and one from the mains menu. All were lovely. Reasonably priced also.

Went here to celebrate Fathers Day with our son and his newish baby. The food was quite mixed. The entrees were very average (deep fried Camembert and bruschetta). The pasta mains were very good. However, the veal was only average. Too thinly sliced and the mixed vegetables and salad was disappointing. The deserts were generally OK while those having the Tiramasu were very happy. Service was slow. Take your own wine as the wine list is not particularly good.

The restaurant is within a small arcade and up the top of the stairs. The service was pleasant and no complaints with the décor/furnishings.

Nothing wrong with the food .. food was adequate in quality but overpriced. There was a $30 offer for 2 courses - both advertised on the footpath board and inside the menu - but upon ordering we were told Friday was not included (although this was not stated on the board or the menu).

The Bruschetta ($7.50) was slices of tomato on toast and a sprinkling of canned parmesan cheese - disappointing.

The Veal Scaloppini ($27.50) was veal with a sliced potato and garnish. No vegetables (they were $4 extra).

The Tortellini ($24.50) saved the night - tasted good and a decent size.

Unfortunately there was no choice of wine by the glass other than house wine which was "rough as".

We probably won't return.

We were looking forward to an authentic Italian meal but were bitterly disappointed. The staff were uninterested, the wine was limited to wine by the class for house wines only and the decor was tired and in need of a refurbishment. We were prepared to overlook this if the food was delicious but unfortunately we were again greatly disappointed and actually bewildered by the lack of presentation skills and flavours. Our Bruschetta was just slices of tomato on bread which had burnt edges and should never have been served. Our mains of veal were served with boiled flavourless potatoes and a tired piece of parsley. If you are looking for a dining experience in Caloundra my only advice is don't bother trying ll Piccolo.

We spent about $85 AUD on a scrumptious meal here. I had the ravioli which was a rich and hearty veggie laden sauce kept me full till lunch the next day. Wife had a penne dish with an incredible sauce as well, lighter for sure but with bacon. Grilled chicken skewers with rice as well. Tiramisu was excellent as was a perfectly assembled macchiato. Don't skip this place if it's in the budget to eat out. We were staying at the Worldmark across the street and happy we chose this over the Thai place on site.
