Arrived here by chance as on prowl for dinner having just returned from a trip. Family run and their care and passion showed in the fab food! I cook Italian a lot but I have to admit this was good, very good! Made to feel welcome and comfortable! Lip smacking Gamberoni Vulcano, just the right amount of chilli! Mmm! Hubby... More

Fantastic family run Italian restaurant above the arches in westcliff! The owner greets you like you are old friends and was absolutely wonderful with my children. When he asked my kids how big they wanted their pizza they held out their arms wide and shouted "this big". True to his word the pizza arrived and was absolutely enormous, we had... More

As we needed an early meal we booked a table for 6pm, and the place was pretty full (always a good sign) when we arrived. Service was excellent and drinks and starters arrived promptly. The main courses were superb (veal & veg and Spaghetti Carbonara), piping hot, beautifully cooked and generous portions. And all at good prices :-) A proper... More

Googled restaurants near Cliff's Pavilion and found this one. We booked a table for 6pm Friday evening and glad we did as it was soon full. Great location for pre-theatre meal. Lovely staff and great atmosphere. Food was great, hot, lots of it and served quickly. Extensive menu and good choice of specials. Very slick operation on show night when... More

We booked a table for 4 at 18:00 with a 20:00 show at the Cliffs Pavilion. The place was packed when we got there which I always see as a good sign. Even though it was busy we were shown to our table straight away and drinks order taken. We all had 3 courses and all the food was hot... More

We went to a show at Cliffs Pavilion, & fancied a meal after, we walked down to a little group of restaurants we had spotted earlier. Piccolo caught our eye but considering we were quite late we weren't sure if we would be welcome, well, we couldn't have been more wrong, the very friendly staff assured us it was no... More

Great food. Really good atmosphere. Someone proposed whilst we were there, and people all around got involved in congratulating the couple etc. Only problem was the bill took a long time to arrive when requested, and it had an extra drink and two desserts on it. Took two attempts to get it corrected, but was done eventually. Overall recommended, and... More

Turned up without a booking for a pre Cliffs Pavilion concert meal and despite being very busy with pre concert diners they were able to accommodate us. The pasta dishes we ordered were excellent. The best seafood pasta dish my husband said he has had for a long while and my lasagne was very tasty. The only reason I have... More

Having mentioned when booking that this was a pre-show meal and reminding them upon arrival that we were resticted to 90 mins until we had to leave for a show we were prompty shown to our seats. 45 minutes later our order was taken, despite us flagging down various waiters in between. At this point we knew we only had... More
