We have just been for my fathers 69th birthday. There were ten of us in all (which included four children). The food was amazing and the device and staff were superb!! They don't have a separate children's menu, they just half the portions and the price of anything on the main menu, which I thought... read more

An unbelievable sight in these austere times - a near packed restaurant at 1730 on a Saturday evening. There was a birthday party in and the other diners were having a pre Cliffs show meal ahead of the Fleetwood mac tribute gig. Our table was close to the loos - no smell but because the thoroughfare was tight everyone who... More

On an extremely busy Friday night and catering for 17 on our table alone, Piccolo could not have done a better job. The food was uniformly delicious and we were allowed to take plenty of time without being the least bit hurried. I had the garlic bread, salmon and tiramisu, which were all perfectly cooked. The atmosphere was upbeat, which... More

I booked this restaurant prior to going to the Cliffs Pavillion to see the panto on Christmas Eve. I can not rate this restaurant highly enough - food, service, value for money and ambiance are first class. Friendly, attentive waiters ensure you are treated like a member of their family. I visit the Cliffs several times each year; I will... More

6 of us visited piccolos just before Christmas, the staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly and the food was excellent, I wasn't cheap (or outrageously expensive) but we had a good evening and it was well worth the money

Having looked at this webiste, somehow this restaurant appears to receive good reviews for both food and service, therefore, our visit must have just been an "off day" for them, or maybe the local people and/or regulars settle for bland food. I visited the restaurant with my partner and her mother (both Italians), the food was......wait for it......Bland!, something you... More

We've been going here as a family for the last 15 years at least twice a year and it has become one of our favourites. Children of all ages are catered for. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is superb. If you're looking for Masterchef, forget it but this is just fabulous Italian "home cooking".
