I have been a few times. The food is always tasty and fresh. I have a problem with the prices on the menu going up. Seems a bit steep for what you get. Cozy atmosphere.

Quaint with great service and excellent recommendations from multiple members of the staff. Every item we ordered, from the wine to the appetizers and the entrees was PERFECT. Our only regret is we waited to try Piccolo our last... More

Caffe Piccolo presents very good food with a $$$ price but well worth it. A warm friendly spot but its driveway off Rt 17 in Pawley's Island, SC just pass the food Lion is a tricky turn off a high speed road. They can't control that but they make up for it in good food, wine and presentation.

Want Italian that's not all Red sauce, then this is it. Great seafood and veal. Dining inside or out under the pergola. Calamari app almost enough for an entree.

Wow! Perfecto! The service by Kurt was spectacular and every recommendation was on point from the wine to the entree. The burrata was exceptional and is a must have when you're there. The outdoor dining patio does not get any more quaint, sweet or romantic... it took me right back to my time in Amalfi! Pawleys Island is lucky to... More

We are regular visitors to Pawley's and Caffe Piccolo. We love the intimate atmosphere here, and the variety of the menu. On our recent visit, I tried the Raviolo Ouvo, something I've never had before. It was the best thing I have ever eaten. My husband enjoyed the Seafood Pescatori with linguini. Caffe Piccolo continues to improve its intimate setting... More

Recently while on vacation, we tried Caffe Piccolo. We enjoyed the outdoor dining facility on a warm fall evening. We all tried different entrees. My entree was a special, veal with gorgonzola and pasta which was heavenly! Everyone commented on their food and how good it was. The salads were nicely done and very filling. We tried the one with... More

What do you look for in a restaurant? Great food - check. Great atmosphere - check. Great staff - double check!! Four of us visited Café Piccolo Monday evening, (Oct. 20th) and Jimmy and JR made us feel right at home in a lovely outdoor setting that transports you to an Italian villa. From the wine to the presentation of... More

If you are visiting the Pawley's Island area or just zooming through this is worth your time. We have been twice and each time the food and service are incredible. This is not your typical beach dining, but elegant and sophisticated food in a lovely setting.We enjoyed the evening specials on Oct. 20th, veal in gorgonzola sauce and red snapper... More
