Visited Friday 15/8 and what a wonderful welcome, We were shown to what the waiter chose to call "Vickie's" table, nice little corner table which was lovely for the two of us. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like a long lost friend, they are all charming. The food was very good indeed and the house red... More

My husband and I were recommended by a friend to go to Piccolos for our 3rd wedding anniversary hoping for a romantic evening of delicious food and booked the table in advance. When we arrived the restaurant was extremely busy. Having ordered drinks, starters and mains altogether we were disappointed to find the coke was flat and then we did... More

I cannot recommend Piccolo's enough to ANYBODY. Fantastic food, incredible atmosphere and some serious good prosecco! We regularly visit with family, pre-show or just the two of us for a meal out. Great specials and wonderful pizza. The garlic pizza bread is DIVINE! You can't get better value for money than this place. Wonderful!!!!

My Mum and I visited Piccolo's on a barmy, sunny Friday evening without having made a reservation at all. All of the 3 Restaurants above the Arches seemed totally packed so we weren't hopeful that we would be able to secure a table. What a welcome though...a high five and continental double kisses from lots of the staff which made... More

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
