We live in Chester and eat out a lot. Piccolinos is just great. Never fails to deliver - consistently good food but what makes the pace special are the wonderful staff. We always enjoy our time there and cannot recommend it enough. Special occasion = Picco's :)

I really like this place. The carbonara, with egg and bacon is quite simply the best carbonara ever! I have never eaten anything else here as I just can't resist the carbonara. All my friends agree it is the best ever! The garlic breads are lovely as are the olives. Oh and the wines are really super.

Booked a table at 6.00pm on a Saturday prior to Christmas. We knew it would be busy, but having just survived a day's shopping were hoping for a restful meal before getting back to our hotel. Everything was rushed, and frenetic. The order was taken promptly and we were keen to get a drink inside as we were very thirsty.... More

The first time I ate here the chips I ordered were overcooked and they gave me a breakfast tea when I had asked for a peppermint tea. Unfortunately, my work Christmas party was organised here and they didn't do much better as no-one who ordered the steak had it cooked how they had asked for and an order of drinks... More

First visit here and my husband and myself enjoyed! Both had starters and a main and was not disappointed! The staff were very efficient and friendly. A bit on the expensive side but we felt it was worth it to have a fab meal with attentive staff... Will return!!

Music was to loud, but asked them to turn it down and it was done straight away. My husband and I shared the rib of beef steak beautiful and tender.

We hadn't been to Piccolinos for a few years but we were looking forward to a visit during Christmas shopping. We weren't disappointed. We both had the £15 for two courses menu which had a good selection of meals, the one we chose beautifully cooked. For me that was Fried Calamari starters and sea bass for main. The restaurant is...

Restaurant was a bit chilly sitting by the windows, so we asked to be moved which was no trouble at all, although it wasn't much warmer further into the restaurant. Suffered steak envy because I chose a seafood Risotto which was very nice albeit slightly stodgy, whilst my companion chose the rump steak which I had to try and that... More

Some of the best food I have had outside of Italy, and as an Italian foodie that is really quite a compliment. friendly relaxed staff, good drinks (an excellent negroni) and food of really good standard. Simple fresh ingredients, prepared & presented well. I like food that is not messed with or deconstructed: it has to start with best ingredients... More
