FIRST TIME VISIT

Cannot fault the food and service. We arrived for our pre-booked 7.30 table at 7.20 and were greeted and offered a drink at the bar immediately. Before we had been served a waiter came over and asked if we wanted to be seated. We were sat in a corner seat facing the sea. From the moment we sat to... read more

I booked a table for a pre-theatre dinner a week ahead of time and was glad that I had because when we arrived at 6pm, the restaurant looked full to burst! We were welcomed with kisses and hand shakes by the tactile but charming owner (I presume) who showed us to our table, which was happily right by the window.... More

We have just had our second lovely meal in two weeks. Warm welcome, buzzing atmosphere and great food. We has lamb with rosemary, calves liver and the halibut special and all of them delicious. Thank you. Recommended.

My husband and I visited Piccolo for dinner before a show at the Cliffs Pavilions. It is situated very close to the theatre in a row of other Italians, so very convenient. Although it didn't look like much when we arrived, the rustic nature of the relatively small family run restaurant became part of its charm. It was full by... More

We were booked in to see a show at the Cliffs Pavillion nearby and only had a little over an hour to spare by the time we got to Southend. We had already booked a table and explained we were going to a show so needed to get our... More

Great Italian restaurant, warm authentic and friendly. Went for lunch on a bank holiday Monday. Service is attentive and good recommendations where given, all the waiters were charming and funny. Had a window seat, so view is great. Will be returning again and again! Pasta was delicious, need to go back to try the fish and pizzas!
