We ate here just after the Duathlon World Championships. Wish we'd found it sooner. Lovely food - very well priced and the service was excellent too. Great service and the waiter - maybe the owner ? was very amusing and friendly. Spoke great English too - and even recognised my accent !

went to this place a couple of times whilst in Pontevedra for the World Duathlon Champs. Owner and staff couldn't do enough for us and the kids. Food was great and the wine even better.

Loved the presentation of their food. They have a variety of salads, which is great. The first afternoon we had pizza. It was very good pizza for Spain (happy that it is thin crust, but NY pizza is tastier). We returned in the afternoon and ordered a pasta seafood dish, the spinach tortellini plate and a whole wheat spaghetti and... More

The food is quite good, unless you come when they are understaffed and busy. The owner is quite nice and friendly perhaps a bit too much. The shots of Limoncelo is a nice touch.

Brilliant freshly cooked dishes served here. Have been on many occasions and always received 5* service from the waiters / waitress and also the owners. Not only the service 5* but the good also lives up to these standards. Best place I have eaten in Vigo / Pontevedra and all very reasonably priced for the quality of good you receive!

I have been there a couple of times in the past weeks and i can ensure you that is one of the best italian restaurant in the Pontevedra province . Very good atmosphere and environment. Excellent and warm service and incredible taste of the pastas . Terrific the quality of the dessert ( e.g. Banoffi ) . I strongly suggest... More

We enjoyed a dinner for 4 at II Piccolo after having many nights of spanish food and feeling the need for a change. Pontevedra is not full to bursting with alternative choices and II Piccolo is one of only a few not serving Tapas dishes. Thankfully it does not disappoint. We ordered Ravioli and it was fresh and tasted delicious.... More

We stumbled across this searching for a nice, reasonably priced dinner. The pizzas and pasta were fabulous; the wine list extensive and reasonably priced. Our hostess was gracious and solicitous of our needs. A rather lengthy wait for our check was mitigated by the chef appearing with an after-dinner lemoncello for each member of our party. Highly recommended!
