I come here once a week usually on a week night when finishing late. The pizzas are excellent especially the Quattro formaggi which you can add salami too if you ask (hint to meat lovers). Those of you reading the reviews which are critical of Piccola remember what the composition of the population of Hampstead are like and then promptly... More

Went there for mother's day and the service was absolutely awful. We had one extra guest and whilst the waiter was more than happy to oblige, the manager was very off hand and wouldn't entertain us having an extra guest. There was room but think he just didn't want to assist. Food was bland and the pizza unedible. When we... More

We've been to Picolla many times. Always had good, consistent food. However, this time the food was completely different. Dried oregano on the bruschetta (instead of fresh basil). Parsley on the penne al tonne and spaghetti napolitanna made it all taste odd and quite bitter. We asked if they had a new chef ..... "yes". When we expressed our disappointment... More

We were greeted with a smile and given a table on a busy Saturday evening, which was booked again later in the evening. Delighted to find Piccola. Great, friendly service, lovely food, reasonable prices.....what more could we have wanted? Very happy, will be back.

Been here quite a few times, although its always busy they have always managed to squeeze (normally 3 of us) in somewhere. My husband enjoys dishes from the daily specials menu and I really like their pizzas as does our son. There is one waitress who always seems to be very genuinely nice and helpful. An essential stop off for... More

I had been meaning to go here for a while and finally had the chance The staff were super friendly and did ask a few times throughout the meal if we were ok and if needed anything. But they would ask if needed pepper or oil or something else and so it wasn't annoying at al As for the food,... More

Food was good but service pretty much ruined a good night with friends and the waiter had the audacity of being mad at us for only paying half of the service charge- which my partner payed because he is nice- I would have never payed it. Very disappointed as I used to go there all the time a few years... More

This is an unpretentious restaurant on the high street in Hampstead serving excellent Italian cuisine. Although the restaurant is small it has a lovely ambience and the meat and fish options are always superb.

Recently when to this restaurant with friends and in all honesty wouldn't rush back as the meal was just average. Ordered the minestrone soup, which I asked to be hot, came up warm just the bowl was hot. It was supposed to have pasta in it, but couldn't find any and also it was tasteless! The rest of the meal...
