Great italien food

First time here. We traveling around the world and spending a lot of money into restaurants. The menu is simple which is great because when it is your specialty you offer what you can do best.+ And what is nice about it is the fact that you can ask for few changes or additions and the chief will... read more

Amazing true Italian food: fresh, cooked to perfection and served professionally. Four of us each tried a different dish and shared. Each dish was just delicious. Will be going back again very soon. Recommend reservations as for good reason this place fills quickly.

Both my partner and I were impressed by the Caffe Piccolo. The food was outstanding and quite ample, so we split everything. The appetizer was a lovely bufalo with fresh peaches on arugula. The main course was a crunchy sweet corn risotto with beautifully prepared scallops. For dessert, a light and chocolatey profiterole composition. All delightful.

We went to Caffe Piccolo on our last night in Pawley's Island which just so happened to be a Sunday. The place was not at all crowded but I made a reservation earlier in the day just to be safe. The place is very tiny (hence the name) as are the tables on the patio and I was a bit... More

My family and I (party of 4) thoroughly enjoyed our lunch today at Caffe Piccolo. The food was "fine dining" and we couldn't have been more happy. I agree with other reviewers that the atmosphere is great and so is the service. We tried their appetizer special called "Barata" with arugula, prosciutto, grilled peaches, unprocessed mozzarella cheese topped with a... More

The purports to be be fine dining, with prices to reflect that assertion, however, they do not deliver. Ordered the crab cakes, accompanied by pasta and fresh spinach with a lemon butter sauce. The crab cakes arrived refrigerator cold in the center. The plate was returned to the kitchen. The same crab cakes, pasta and now limp spinach was returned... More

My wife and I, and a friend, visited on a beautiful evening and sat outside in a great courtyard. Our meals were all excellent from the stuffed banana pepper appetizer to 2 pasta and 1 veal dinners. The service was outstanding. This is a very pleasant place for a couple or four good friends. Eating outside is the way to... More
