This is my second favorite restaurant in Pawleys Island, I highly recommend it! I've eaten here multiple times and have always left full and satisfied. The food is tasty, the ambiance is joyful, and the wine is well chosen. I am satisfied-to-happy with the service, not the best, but definitely better than average. If you live or vacation on Pawleys... More

Amazingly beautiful outdoor sitting area complete with twinkling lights and fountain. Simply lovely. Main course was delicious. Appetizer was an eggplant dish however, that was a bit rubbery. Abrupt service detracted from what could have been a 5 star rating.

What a lovely restaurant - went back not once but twice during our week at Pawleys Island. Inside is bistro chic and outside is a lovely sparkling garden. Both places offered skillfully prepared food with charming service. The tomato basil soup was fresh and flavorful; my scallops on sweet corn and pancetta risotto were perfectly done - caramelized on the... More

Tonight we came to Caffe Piccolo for the first time on a recommendation from friends. We did not have a reservation, but were seated right away. They have a nice wine list. I ordered the Super Tuscan (the waitress suggested it) and loved it!!! The burrata was an excellent appetizer. It was light, summery, and beautiful. Just what I was... More

We've been coming to Pawley's Island for years and each time we try out different restaurants based on local recommendations. Caffe Piccolo we discovered through Trip Advisor, the restaurant offers both inside and outside seating and the location is nice although you might drive right by it and not know it. We made reservations, while not required, I would strongly... More

We found this restaurant by chance. It is tucked away around the corner in a small shopping center in beautiful surroundings, cosy outdoor seating with lights in the trees and quiet. I visited with my sister travelling from England and I am from Toronto, Canada. We first sat down for a coffee and desert in the afternoon and it was... More

At the time Caffe Piccolo had 121 of 127 reviews rated as "Excellent"; those stats do not lie - food is excellent here. If it's a fair night - dining outside is wonderful. They created quite the nice patio with good ambiance. Inside is nice as well if you just need to have the A/C. The food is prepared wonderfully.... More

Love this place and can't believe we just found it, since they've been open four years. Very cozy, friendly staff, and efficient service even with only two servers (one of whom is the chef's wife). We walked in without a res around 6:30 on a Tuesday and they seated us promptly. Fresh homemade bread, great, lemony and light Caesar salad.... More

Saw this place on trip advisor and decided to go. Was an excellent choice - food and wine were excellent! Would've loved to sit on the beautiful patio if it hadn't been in the mid-90s!
