I was the first to review this restaurant a couple of years ago. We are not local but visit Westcliff regularly and occasionally come here for lunch - the staff always remember us.. My opinion hasn't changed. We are always greeted very warmly and made to feel welcome. As today was cold and wet, the restaurant wasn't as full as... More

A buzzy, very busy and crowded little bistro. Don't come here for a quiet meal, but if you want hearty, traditional Italian food at a good price, then Piccolo is worth a visit. Great veal alla Milanese, fantastic carbonara. Service is fun and good natured. We'll be back.

My husband and I always eat here if we're going to a show at the Cliff's Pavilion, and we have done for years. The welcome is always hearty, there is a huge choice of delicious dishes, and the specials board always has something interesting to offer, usually in the way of fish, but other options are available. One definite plus... More

Me and my partner went here Sunday evening, and was seated on a corner booth table, but with another table push right against us, I over heard another couple opposite moaning about lack of space As well. The waitress presented us with menus, and walked off, no offer of drink, specials or soup. When she walked past us, we asked... 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
