We have eaten here a few times over the last few months. The food is good and the choice will suit most palates. There is a fixed price menu that offers a reasonable choice at a competitive prices. Worth a visit

Experience the flavour, style, colour and charm of modern Italy at this truly outstanding Piccolino restaurant and bar. Located on Ashley Road in the attractive village of Hale, the restaurant features a fine dark wood exterior that is sure to turn heads, whilst the covered al fresco terrace is the perfect location to enjoy a relaxing drink or bite to eat with friends. Beyond the glass doors, vibrant green leather upholstery is combined with striking black marble table tops, inviting mirrors and sleek wooden finishes to create a contemporary style and atmosphere that is always welcoming, relaxed and informal. Upstairs, the chefs work passionately in the open kitchen, whilst the sight of fresh pasta being made from scratch each and every day provides a delightful visual spectacle for guests as they enjoy the great tastes of Italy.
