Try the parmesan basket!

Good Italian food, fine wine list and excellent service what more could you want? Best to book for a Saturday night, also has coffee bar and deli during the day.

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...

This is a little Gem, the village where I live also hosting a Italian when we have the pick of the other fine restaurants to choose from. All Restaurants in Corbridge really good - quality and service surpasses them all, however this one is still one of my favourites.

I visited il piccolo for the first time last weekend for a girly meal with my mum. We were very pleased with the whole night. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely. I had fried mussels to start and tortelloni with cream and mushrooms for main. Both were delicious!! I would definitely recommend a visit to this... More

We visited this restaurant last Friday evening, and how disappointing it was. We found the menu very limited, nothing on the menu for main course for under £10, and yes, we did try the Parmesan basket, but it was rock hard, I decided not to finish fearing for my teeth! One of our party had the avocado and aubergine in... More

Ordered 4 meals, two pizzas, which were okay and good. Two different pasta dishes that were served with the type of pasta transposed. The meatballs were overcooked / burnt were returned to kitchen and exchanged. Had puddings which okay. Management resolved the issue but by then the evening was spoilt.

This is a great Italian restaurant which appears to be family run and as such the attentive service is second to none. they have a wide ranging menu but have also been happy to accommodate additional request to suit individual dietary requirements. This is the best restaurant in Corbirdge without a doubt! Lovely food, great service and they even serve... More

Had a really nice meal here tonight. The food was delicious with very generous portions and I can recommend the house red. The staff were friendly and attentive, overall a great night.

First time here with our son, partner and granddaughter. Impressed with genuine Italian menu and winelist - very different from the standard pizza/pasta menus you get in most towns.Lovely starters and mains and great service all the way through the evening. Price about average for a good restaurant. Hope to go again soon!

Great for a ladies lunch. You are greeted with a smile; never rushed.They realise that you are there to have a really good chat and the service is always just right. I have always had good food there and it is always a pleasure.
