Special Sunday

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... read 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

We had not booked anywhere tonight and literally drove past looking for somewhere to eat. We had no idea what it would be like but it turned out to be a great decision to go in and give it a try. The staff could not have been more welcoming and the atmosphere was intimate - good music and lighting etc..... More

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.
