Lovely restaurant very tasty food. Staff are pleasant, it's kind of dearer than your average Italian restaurant. Well worth a visit whilst browsing around Chester.

My wife and I went to Piccolino during a short city break in Chester. Food was absolutely superb, probably the best Italian meal we've enjoyed in the UK. Nice atmosphere and service was pretty good. Cost around £100 for 3 courses with a couple of drinks so not cheap but good value considering the quality of the food. Would certainly... More

The food was fantastic, everything cooked perfectly and only a small waiting time in-between courses. Average cost of normal restaurant. Waiters walk past with a quick "is everything ok?" With not enough time to even complain if we wanted too. Other than less than attentive service, I'd go back.

We went with family for a late birthday celebration for my Mum. There was a party of 6 of us and we were accommodated at very short notice. I have been to Piccolinos several times and I have to say its always been consistently good food, although the service can vary. This time we all had very different options, my... More

my mistake was probably ordering fish at an Italian restaurant. I imagine if pizza is your thing here is fine. My salmon was dry and honestly was like an uncle bens frozen fillet. I'm not normally a fussy eater but I had to swerve this food. Shame. Service was less than attentive.

Had a lovely meal here, the staff were so friendly always smiling and very helpful. The restaurant had a family atmosphere and we never felt like we were waiting for anything and to top it off the food was lovely and was reasonable!

Had lovely meal on a Saturday night. Busy as usual but great atmosphere. Drinks at the bar was fun with knowledgeable bar staff. Only minor criticism is that our table was in the draft from the door and it was a cold night. We understand that there is some refurbishment planned and this won't be a problem then. Food was...
