Hidden gem - ignore bad reviews!!!

Recently stayed in Tenerife for a week and came across Piccolo in Los Cristianos. Read some reviews and some of them weren't great - so glad we ignored them! We were given a lovely table next to the window with a sea view as requested earlier in the day and were looked after by Pedro who was... read more

Was there this week.Service was blasé. Pizza good. Pasticia looked like a plate of dog food and taste was awful. Plato del Dia (plate of the day) looked good but was horrible, it was one of the few meals my wife could not finish in the 20 years that I've known her! We were asked if we wanted to take... More

We had previously visited this restaurant and found the food and service to be good, however on this visit both were distinctly average. The waiter was pushy and too busy talking to his colleague when we actually needed him, and the pasta was a little hard around the edges. We will probably not return for a third visit.

We have had a good experience in the past but tonight was really poor We waited 15 minutes for our drinks order to... More

We have been visiting Tenerife for over 10years and each year we return to Piccolo's. This year we visited four times in the two weeks we were there. Each time we were warmly greeted and looked after very well by Luca and his team. The food was excellent as always, all topped off with a fantastic view from the terrace.... More

Saw this place along the beach when we were looking for somewhere to eat. It was up high up and we noticed that there were restaurants up from the Promenade to eat at. Service was fabulous. There were tables that overlooked the beach view and I asked to sit there as there was a couple who looked as though they... More

The ambience is dimly lit, in keeping with the seaside privy serene setting... The beer on tap, which i forget the name of, was absolutely wonderful (the waiter said it was a spanish local beer) We were not very hungry so had the bread with tomato which was the best i have ever had... Had a ravioli pasta which was... More

If you want the best Italian food in Tenerife, then you must go to Piccolo in Los Cristianos - the lasagne is the best I have ever tasted, even in Italy. I go there very regularly & each time I vow to try something different, but just cannot go past their lasagne. My wife is very fond of their pasta... More

Ate here twice on our weeks holiday. We didn't book and arrived about 7.30. Any later and you probably have to wait for a table. Their gorgeous homemade focaccia was the highlight but the main meals that followed were just as good. Loved the atmosphere and if you can, get a table outside. Nice views of the sea and patio...
