A fantastic family run coffee shop and restaurant. Such a warm and friendly welcome, fantastic coffee and delicious home made cakes. We've been more than once and will certainly be going back.

We live near Il Pichio and since our first trip we love to go for a nice relaxing meal. Sandro, the owner, is a lovely gentleman who is easy to talk to and always gives a warm welcome. The food is all fresh and original Italian dishes. There is always lovelyusoc playing in the background. Definitely pay a trip here... More

We live nearby and go to Il Picchio regularly. It's an amazing little place that doesn't look like much from the outside but is fantastic on the inside! During the day it runs like a cafe, it's really relaxed and the food and coffee is fantastic. The hot chocolate is something to behold - you can stand your spoon up... More

We have become regulars at Il Picchio - I often pop in with a friend after we have walked the dog Sat mornings and sometimes eat week end evenings with my husband. The atmosphere is so relaxed and friendly. Food is fresh, tasty and genuinely Italian. I feel really lucky to have II Picchio's on our door stop.

Sandro was not there, but the person serving us could not have been more accomodating, and we had a splendid large plate of Antipasto, with wonderful Olive Oil from Sandro's own... More
