The taste of the fun decor may detour "macho" men, but they would be missing out on big taste. VERY unique. Typical Italian done well also meals with a twist. Try the Mozzerella with Sour Cream & Balsamico....WOW..... melts in your mouth. Never have the combination. All starters and pastas are great. Desserts are all homemade and GREAT. Only little...

Ultra modern quirky restaurant. Great welcome with complimentary cocktails & starters. They immediately replaced my pate with a vegetarian option when I declined meat. Unusual objects on the tables & amazing loos. The food was great - as was the service. I wasn't surprised there was a queue waiting for tables when we left.

We had lunch here on Whitsunday. I usually avoid to explicitely write reviews about restaurants, because I feel it is quite a daunting task to express and share the sort of subjective soft factors which contributes to meet the individual expectations which go beyond just food quality and service. For Piccolo Ristoro I decided to make an exception. I simply... More

The inside decorations are a bit wacky for an old town. Why would you want a garden nome on your table! Full size at that! And the service is a bit slap dash. We had to ask for our wine a few times. But the food was tasty. And plenty of it with extra courses thrown in. And the price... More

This restaurant is part of the Olina Hotel. Do not over order! You will receive 3 additional sub-courses during the course of the meal, all of the quality to the main fare Service, wine advice, all excellent. The dining upstairs has a great 'old world' San Giulio feel.

We ate here to celebrate our wedding anniversary while in the area, a local shop owner recommended this tiny restaurant and we are so grateful he did. We may have bypassed this tiny restaurant with the kitsch seven dwarf theme but do not let this put you off. Behind the Disney dwarves lies a fabulous chef & team producing really... More

You are given a 10% welcome discount. The food was spectacular but if ordering meat and don't like it bloody, make sure to tell them. Can't fault the staff at all. Can't miss the restaurant when walking by as it is all white and exceptionally clean.
