“Could not be faulted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Have now eaten here and in the Renfrew restaurnt several times and have never been disappointed. Food was great, we were in a large party but not one complaint. We had the Celebration menu -fantastic value for money without compromising the standard of food. Service was friendly and super efficient. Lovely to have a good restaurant back in Renfrew. Well done Piccolo Mondo, will definately be back.

“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My colleague and I were in Glasgow for 3 nights and we ended up having 2 out of our 3 dinners here! Some of the best Italian I've had, and service was really lovely too :). My colleague was vegetarian so they cooked up some delightful stuff for him that was all-veg. The Tiramisu was out of this world!

“Faultless Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Visited Piccolo Mondo last night for a 2 year anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. We chose from 'The Variety' menu which included an apertif, starter, main, dessert and liqueur for the amazing value of £17.50 per person.

Minestrone was lovely and the warm vegetarian anti pasto was genuinely the best I have ever had. The linguini pomodoro was cooked to perfection and the tortelloni was delicious. Home made apple pie and sticky toffee pudding for dessert absolutely to die for, complete with cream and ice cream as well as custard with the 'torta di mele'.

Regarding service, the short Italian man was a little abrupt, telling us quite sternly when things would 'cost extra' which as a young couple, almost felt slightly belittling. I have to give all credit to the tall scottish waiter with the glasses for his excellent service which really makes the customer feel special and absolutely completes the dining experience..all waiters should be as polite, helpful and enthusiastic as him!

My only small criticism would be to put some more veggie options on the menu! Overall, I left Piccollo Mondo 100% happy and really could not fault it. An absolutely perfect dining experience with authentic food and an authentic Italian atmosphere. Looking forward to going back again.

“Our very favourate Italian Restaurant - anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This little gem just off the hustle, bustle of the main shopping centre of Buchanan Street under the Central Station Bridge at Argyle Street is a must for all food lovers. Impeccable choice of fare served by attentive waiters in great surroundings. A must visit restaurant if you live let alone visit Glasgow.
