We went for lunch on a busy day when the restaurant was dealing with a couple of big parties. Often in that situation one has to wait a while for service and food, but both were prompt. We were welcomed by the owner who was very attentive and friendly, staff were lovely and the food was absolutely delicious! Portions not... More

Well done "Il Piccolo". As a 2nd timer I didn't know what to expect following their move to Corbridge. I found great wines, VERY tasty food, a warm welcome and just what I had hoped for. Take a bow.

A very average restaurant that seems quite expensive for the food/experience on offer. Not bad if you want a quick fix of pasta/pizza, but the quality is no where near where it could be in food terms. But, there's not a lot of choice locally, so you may not have a choice . . . the lack of competition shows.

Our first visit to Il Piccolo one evening this week and it won't be the last. Wonderful to discover this Corbridge gem close to the heart of what is a truly lovely village. A charming and relaxed candlelit restaurant run by Sicilian-born chef Manuele and his wife Pam, who should be very proud of what they have created here. Part... More

We called in Il Picolo on Saturday night without a reservation but still received a warm welcome from Pam and the staff, we decided to stay in the wine bar and have the Tapas, and excellent selection from the tasty meatballs in tomato sauce to the calamari, all freshly prepared and well presented. The staff were attentive but not intrusive,... More

I visited here with my family at the end of my visit and I was not disappointed. The staff were very attentive and the menu very extensive and very reasonably priced! As always I chose the pizza which was crispy underneath and plenty of topping. For dessert I had the poached pears in red wine beautiful! A good wine list... More
