The ambiance is really authentic and the staff very friendly. We were on our way to the Cliffs Pavilion to see a show, so booked the table for 6pm, we were... More

Thursday evening and this restaurant was very busy but they managed to find us a table for two. We we served quickly although the ordered drinks took a long time to arrive (well after the starter) and the Spaghetti Bolognaise I felt was a little bland (I prefer a more tangy tomato taste) although my friend had the same and...

We always have an excellent meal every time we visit Piccolos, the staff are wonderful, fabulous service, amazing food, nothing too is ever too much trouble. But don't take our word for it, see for yourself. Thoroughly recommended !

I booked a table for 6.15pm in the evening as we had theatre tickets at 8pm. We were fully aware that if we had ordered a lot of food this may take sometime so we had already decided just to have a starter and main course. We sat down just before 6.10pm and we ordered three starters at 6.25pm. We... More

Having moved from London recently my partner and I were yet to find any really decent food in Southend (we're sure there's lots, just yet to locate the best restaurants) but after a trip to the theatre we stopped in at Piccolo late for a plate of pasta. Staff were friendly but not pushy, and the pasta puttanesca was the... More

Started with us waiting to be greeted and seated then sat at a table that had just been vacated and had to be cleaned and laid up, other tables were full of dirty dishes. Sadly, the food was not at all good, Calimari very rubbery (over cooked) and not a nice taste, Mussells not cleaned properly before cooking, main courses... More

The place itself is nice but the wine we ordered was warm and tasted bad. We asked for some olives as appetiser and we had industrial tasteless olives out of a tin. The main course was good. Overall nice evening, good friendly service, but I probably won't come back as I felt a bit disappointed when I left.

We have eaten hear twice recently, once with the family (parents and children) and then once just myself and daughter. With the family we ate from the set menu, which had a good range and was excellent value for money, the good was freshly cooked, tasty and well presented. When just two of us went we chose from the a... More

Went back last night after a few years away, and we were blown away by the food, the ambience and the friendly staff. Absolutely first class. Extensive menu - Sea Bass was enormous!! Well done Piccolo's - will be back very soon.
