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".

This is a very lively authentic Italian restaurant with bags of atmosphere. The food was amazing and we felt very well priced. We felt really bad that we could not finish our meal as the portions were so generous, we just couldn't fit anymore in!! Definitely worth a visit.

We booked to go before a show at the Cliffs Pavillion and the place was buzzing. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Wine was served just right temperature and our food was excellent even though it was a pizza and a lasagne.
