Rather over priced for both the food and the ambience. Friendly front of house but this was not matched by the food.

Called in for lunch as the place we were going wasn't serving food. So glad they weren't the food in Il Piccolo was fantastic, great portions and stunning food. All five of use loved the meal, I had the crab ravioli and was astounded by the amount of crab in it. Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Corbridge.

Just love this place with Pamela and team front of house, Manuel in the kitchen and Stephano looking after the bistro bar. They now have the bistro bar, restaurant and ice cream shop all seperate but easily accesable one to the other. Great idea to start off in the bar with the menu and glass of something sparkling. This is... More

Booked here to finish a day out with friends, first impressions were very good and everything looked nice on arrival, First problem came when we opened the menu to see that 95% of the starters were fish based, as none of us were fish fans we had to ask if we could have starter portions of a main pasta courses,...

We stopped off in Corbridge on our way to North Yorkshire and had a wonderful meal in this delightful restaurant. We were welcomed as if we were regulars and treated to great service from friendly smiling staff. The food was first rate and the ice cream exceptional. My only regret is that I don't live closer to be able to... More

We went on Fri 24th July for my 40th, so read the reviews here on Tripadvisor and they all sounded great. Maybe the staff/chefs or menu had changed since the last review (though by the state of the dirty, well fingered menus we doubt it) My husband ordered a Pizza with potato, rosemary, red onion and Gorgonzola...ok Potato...alarm bells should...
