Fantastic Food

We are at Pawleys all the time and just found this great place to eat. High quality food made from scratch. My top place to go. Never over crowded and just a fun place to relax and eat great food. Fantastic Grouper. Eaten there twice in last couple weeks

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

My family and I always make sure we go to this restaurant when we are in town. For the past 5 years, we've visited this gem and always had an amazing time. It's a nice, quiet restaurant with amazing food. The appetizers, salads, soups, and entrees are all fantastic. This past trip, the corn and pancetta risotto was so delicious.... More

Enjoyed an outstanding dinner in a delightful courtyard setting outdoors....the spicy stuffed banana peppers app was unusual and very tasty....loved both the veal and pasta dishes....the veal scarpariello also accompanied by spicy peppers. It was half price wine night (by the bottle) and the service (by Kurt) was excellent

Having been to Caffe Piccolo several years ago when they first opened, we were not impressed but felt it was time to give it another try. We were surprised to see the beautiful outdoor dining patio and the expansion of the inside dining area and bar. Although it is still small, it is now cozy not cramped. Andie our server... More

Small gem tucked next to the health food store. Great Italian and seafood. Full bar. Surprised with one comment. Would not consider bringing children here. There are other very good Italian restaurants better suited for children. Piccolo is perfect for couples and small groups. Thought a bit noisy this time but there were several large groups at long tables. Food... More

We enjoyed specials and menu items and wine. It was a fantastic experience! Service, food, and ambiance were beyond great. Super fresh and flavorful dishes carefully prepared.

The place was half empty. Service was slow. The waitress was very nice but saw her 4 times in 90 minutes. Bread was great. Appetizer was fine but main course was DRY. Noodles were tasteless. House wine was overpriced. Tripadvisor ranks it #2 in Pawleys Island?? Maybe #20. I would never go back here unless you are paying and then... More

This is just not the best Italian restaurant we have experienced in quite some time, it's overall in general just one of the best. The food is fresh and very flavorful The portions and presentation is excellent as well. Don't miss this one.
