We found this restaurant on the way home from golf. It is a small but lovely little restaurant with a VERY talented chef. The menu has a little of everything and everything done REALLY WELL. My husband had Linguine and clam sauce and I had a saute'd chicken in lemon & wine sauce. The food was perfectly seasoned and delicious.... More

A small little restaurant hidden back off the highway,but the food is very well done. It can be crowded at times because of it's size, but don't give up on trying it. You'll be pleased.

great food and very friendly staff... felt right at home. The atmosphere was lovely, and the food... well, the food was out of this world!!!. I will surely be making plenty of trips back to Caffe Piccolo. I think everyone should enjoy this place.

My husband and I ate here for the first time on 3/4/14. We are on the island about 4 weeks per year. We were greeted by Jessica who was our server and she was very enthusiastic and informative. Our whole experience was delightful and delicious. Can't wait to go back. Plan to go again this week before we leave and... More

This was easily the best meal that we had while on our trip. I'm taking a vacation to Myrtle Beach with the family this summer and we will definitely be back!

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Pawley's Island!!! They always have the freshest ingredients and options for gluten free too....which I love! Scallops are always cooked to perfection! Intimate dining room, but if you get a chance to sit outside go for it! Surrounded by fresh basil and flowers it's a perfect shaded area for lunch and at... More

My husband had the veal saltimbocca which was also cooked to perfection. It is off the beaten path so when you find it it's like finding a... More

I went to Piccolo for the first time last night and had a wonderful experience. The space is warm and intimate. The outdoor seating is lovely, but it was a bit too chilly for us to enjoy that. Our server was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable about the menu. Good wine selection. The food was superb! From the bread with... More

Seated at 7:30. Dinner served at10:30. Honest. Food was excellent but service was the worst in my 64 years. No apology, no explanation, no sense of urgency after repeated requests for bread or salads. Too many other choices in Pawleys to put up with major issues at this cafe.
