“Great food service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Had the pleasure of being taken here by my new chap. Lovely atmosphere and very welcoming. Owner gave us some really interesting history on the building when we got talking. Food was delicious, I ordered squid which was perfectly cooked. We both had a chicken & spinach sauce dish. Very nice. Will return

“Our favourite restaurant in Farnham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This Restaurant consistently delivers good food and service. When we are deliberating over a choice of so many mediocre options in Farnham we always come back to Café Piccolo.
The Owner, Darius is a comedian, and we never get tired of the welcome and the disguised "insults." and even though he tells tells me every rime that the Steaks are the best Roadkill available on the A31, it still raises a laugh with everyone.

“A delightful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stopped here having turned off the M3 in search of somewhere for a light lunch. We could not have chosen better.

This charming restaurant is comfortable, clean and cosy with bunches of hops and classical heads giving it a restrained Italianate ambience. The only waiter on duty was friendly and welcoming and the service was efficient and fast. The menu offered a wide range of typically Italian dishes including several types of salad and pizzas.

The pizzas are superb with a very thin, crisp base as one finds in the best pizza restaurants in Italy and the South of France. I think I can say that it was probably the best and most authentic pizza I have ever had in this country. The prawn, avacado and mozzarella salad was fresh, crisp and beautifully presented. We finished our meal with some delicious Italian ice cream; the strawberry ice cream really tasted of strawberries and actually had little bits of fruit in it. The bill was extremely reasonable for the high quality of food and service offered.

I cannot fault this little restaurant and would imagine that dinner there would be just as delightful an experience as lunch.

“Cold welcome with dreary attitude throughout.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

WE had not been here for over two years and on Sunday night gave a try. There were only two other tables so basically a quiet night. The waitress was just not interested in providing any welcome and just pushed the menus on to the table and walked off. One minute later she was back, "ready" she virtually snapped?
We ordered and the food was so quick we both said "Brakes or 3663 microwave food"!
Actually it was not bad at all. However our blank faced waitress continued to press us at every chance. Rushed through our meal we paid without a tip to be met by a distinct tut.
Not a good choice we said so will be another two years before we may try again.
