Plays the right tune

Well what a wee gem. Small restaurant creates fun ambience enhanced by lovely food. Service was very attentive and plenty of choice. Good chat too as chef and all staff interact with each other and the customers. Well worth a visit and a return.

This is a great little restaurant tucked away down some stairs on the Perth Road in the University district. Food is superb and excellent value for money. Fine dining at reasonable prices. We are regulars and are never disappointed.

This was my 2nd visit and my partners 1st and most certainly not our last. The food is fantastically authentic tasting and so full of flavour. The prawns are a stand out favourite. Have some family visiting from overseas soon and can't think of anywhere else I'd rather take them.

Decided to go for dinner last minute on Saturday 28th March, and we agreed on piccolo and I'm sure glad we did. From the minute we walked through the door we were impressed.

Popped in on a quiet Tuesday night and after a very friendly welcome got seated and quickly served for my lovely meal. Good food presented well in a charming little bistro. A pleasant evening all round!

I wanted to treat 4 friends to dinner for their support during a crisis and the best date was a Sunday. When I phoned up, Athol, Piccolo's owner said that although they normally closed on Sunday, he would open for me!! I was very impressed. On the night, we were the only 5 people in the restaurant and it was... More

Small intimate Italian restaurant on the Perth Rd. My partner were warmly welcomed on our arrival by Athol & Samuel who own & cook respectlively. Our food was of a very high standard & was presented with class. We had Bruschetta followed by Chicken Cacciatore & Chicken & Chorrizo Crepe washed down with some lovely house red. A real treat....

Boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day and it was great! We booked in advance and were seated right away, despite it being busy. They were doing a special Valentine's Day menu, I had pate, stroganoff and a crepe and my boyfriend had bruschetta, chicken and cheesecake - all of which were really really good! Atmosphere was great and... More
