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

We ate out on the shady patio which was family friendly but a little buggy. The inside is cozy and romantic. Our server (Helen) was charming, personable, and just the right amount of attentive. From the fresh baked bread with doctored olive oil (garlic and herbs) for dipping to the tomato basil soup to the entrees, the meal just got... More

Caffe Piccolo is such a wonderful surprise! My husband and I are world travellers, and Caffe Piccolo is as REAL DEAL! No of those "spaghetti-meatball-pizza-pile-parmesan-on-top" nonsense. We live in downtown Chicago, where you could imagine our Italian options are endless, but Caffe Piccolo definetely can bring some big city restaurants to shame. Their coffee was Illy, brewed really well. The... More
