“very pleasant meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The restaurant was pretty busy with a really nice atmosphere. I had prawns with salad and bruchetta... it was delicious. The prawns in batter were really fresh, and the batter was so light. The service was both very friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Worst eating experience I ever had!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was without a doubt the worst restaurant I have ever came across, from welcome to service to food and overall eating experience there is nothing good I could say about the Piccola. The table didn't fit our party and we were so cramped and squashed. The food was bad with poor quality of meat, cooked very badly from hot starters which were cold to main courses that were deep fried (seriously) and to finish it all off the desert was frozen solid (don't order the lemon tart) Oh! did I forget to mention they don't serve beer, don't waste your money terrible restaurant.
The staff in this restaurant were unfriendly rude and didn't serve the food but threw it on the table.

“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

My wife and I ate here this evening, and it really was fab. We eat out a lot so you know good food when you get it and Piccola is one of the nicest Italians around for sure.
Price is very good also.

“Great little joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We found this place while walking around the city and took a chance on it. It had a great little atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food we had was great and they had a wide range of specials and the prices were very reasonable. Worth the visit.

“Tasty Italian Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a lovely restaurant, with great food and service which tends to be overlooked because of its location as its based in a cellar, which is easly passed by, but once you find it you will def return if you like good italian dishes.
