I was introduced to Piccolo by friends after having walked past it many times but it always seemed shut - not anymore, they have now started doing lunch. My fiancé and I have been for both lunch and dinner with different people and not one person has complained. The carbonara is delicious and the chef happily took out the ham... More

Great atmosphere and fully booked. Service was very good and food was really good. Chef came round all tables at end of evening to speak to everyone which was a nice touch. Only criticism was cold plate and hot pasta don't go but chef took on board. All in all can't wait to return. A reasonable choice of wine which... More

Myself and my husband had not booked a table, the waiter stated at first it might be a delay in the food, which is not a problem as we were in no hurry. We ordered bread and olives but there was no bread. The bruschetta was bland. No flavour as described in the menu. Between three pieces of bread on... More

Bit of a shortage now of decent restaurants in Dundee with the Blue Marlin, Tasting Rooms and Bon Appetite all now closed. Fear Not. Piccolo gets better and better. Sam producing high quality meals and Athol now more 'front of house'....this is the recipe for a great night.

Very homely restaurant with a friendly staff. The atmosphere is more like a taverna rather than a ristorante. Great buzz about the place. Good variety on menu and quality of food is excellent. Perfect for a few friends getting together for a night out rather than a romantic dinner.

Simply wonderful food in a comfortable, if almost-too-cozy environment. As others have pointed out, it's a small room with tables fairly close together, but any discomfort will be quickly overshadowed by the friendly, efficient service, attention to detail, and superb cuisine. I have sampled pasta carbonara in Italy and San Marino; Piccolo's fettuccine carbonara does not rival those of the... More

Had our second visit to this restaurant and was not disappointed. When booking please bear in mind the room is quite small. When we arrived I was concerned how close the tables were and asked if we could have an alternative table. We were informed that there was no tables available so decided to stay and glad we made that... More

Whenever we have a chance for a meal out this is always our default option. Food, service and atmosphere are all superb. Prices are reasonable for such an excellent little place.
