Just get some Grappa!

First time at Piccolo. Food tasted lovely and well presented. More choice in white would be good - had a Pinot but prefer Savignon Blanc. Chef/Owner? and staff very friendly. Had to make it a quick meal but will take more time when we go back.

My husband and I have been eating out at Piccolo's for the past 3 years and we are yet to order a meal that wasn't to perfection. The food is alway fresh and the flavours from the food are mouth watering. I love fish whist my husband nearly always orders the steak! It's fine dining with its white linen tablecloths... More

As soon as you enter you are made to feel welcome, the service was first class. The flavour the chef gets from his food is mouthwatering. Inside the restaurant is small but that adds to the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is excellant and if it's to your taste you have to try the risotto. Hate to post a... More

My partner pass this restaurant almost every day but this Saturday was our first visit. It certainly won't be our last! The waitress and waiter were wonderful. Attentive but not overbearing. The food was gorgeous. Simple, but full of flavour - just what we like! I had the pate to start, my partner the bruschetta. My main was the king... More

I have enjoyed eating at the Piccolo over many years. It sits in a quiet area of Dundee, well within reach of the city centre, the rail station, and the airport. It has a very friendly atmosphere, and the host and his staff are typically friendly and obliging. In particular, they are very flexible about personal tastes and preferences.The food... More

We stayed in Dundee this weekend, 3 families together for my son's 21st Birthday and his dad's 50th. We were recommended this restaurant to have our special meal. EVERYTHING about it was SUPERB. We would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.

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.
