Every experience I've had at caffe piccolo had been incredible. Most recently our server was Andie and she made our night! Friendly, kind and very knowledgeable this was the best service imaginable. The food was outstanding as well and we can't wait to go back. Highly recommended to anyone in the pawleys island area.

From the rave reviews on Trip Advisor, we stopped here for lunch today. I ordered the Panino Margherita for a mere $10. It was a very healthy portion of mozzarella (the real stuff; not the package kind you find at Safeway), plump tomatoes, basil and pesto on a wonderful flatbread. It was better than the one I ate in Rome.... More

We had sampled Caffe Piccolo on three occasions and were impressed with their fresh, authentic Italian cuisine. They are renown for best scallops on the Strand and tangy fresh tomato soup to die for. When we needed a place for a wedding rehearsal dinner, we arranged it with Jimmy Pronesti and Harold Howell, owner/chefs of Caffe Piccolo. Depending upon weather... More

My wife & I found Caffe Piccolo while driving the Ocean Hwy last evening. The restaurant sits back off the highway and there is only a small sign on the roadway to indicate its existence. There were not many cars in the parking lot, which, in some cases is not a good indicator, but we decided to try this Italian... More

Outstanding and consistent. The chef is an Italian master. The food there is nothing short of fantastic. It is my go to place in Pawleys and is easily one of the top 3 in town. Highly recommended

This is an excellent place to get away from the usual standard of fare - the stuffed banan peppers , excellent basil tomato soup and of the course grouper with a perfect white wine lemon sauce where the lemon really came through was a perfect dinner . First found this restaurant on trip advisor although have been coming here for... More

I am not sure I would return, when things don't go well from the start you they recover, but not this time. Based on recommendations here, I chose this place for a nice quiet anniversary dinner for my wife and I. We were seated by the "hostess", who apparently was also our waitress. So our service was intermittent at best... More

We've eaten here since it opened several years ago and have always enjoyed it. There are only a few items on the daily menu, usually one or two specials and a couple of regular dishes. On our last visit though the food wasn't as good as we had come to expect, and the wine list seemed more pedestrian than we... More

Small local Italian restaurant that may be hard to find, but terrific worth it when you do. Many traditional Italian entrees, flavorful salads and daily specials. The Chicken Francese was tender and moist and served with a garlic / wine / butter sauce that enhanced the overall entree. We found this restaurant several years ago and have been eating there...
