A Pawleys Island Gem!

Looking for a great, Italian restaurant in Pawleys Island? Well this is it. The food is excellent. Not heavy, Italian, red sauce dishes, but made with a light, Italian flare. Harold was our waiter and took time to explain the specials and was very attentive throughout our meal. He said he hoped we... read more

This was our second time dining at Cafe Piccolo. We are from Atlanta so we know great restaurants. This exceeds all ! Last summer we ate outdoors and loved the ambiance and this time , being February, we ate inside. So quaint and cozy! It is a little dark inside so bring your reading glasses to read menu! I could...

Wow, what an amazing place! I found Caffe Piccolo up here on Trip Advisor because my fiancé and I traveled down to South Carolina a day ahead of family. We decided to stay one night in Pawley's Island and join the rest of the family the following day in Myrtle Beach. While looking for a great dinner restaurant, I stumbled... More

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
