Dinner was just ok, nothing special. No lobster pasta, friends dinner had to be sent back as it was cold, my potatoes were also cold. The staff are really nice but the food just didn't cut it so we won't be going back. Menu caught fire close by but we have a sense of humour luckily!

What a shame, was good years ago but gone downhill. Lobster pasta wasn't cheap and was bland, creme brulee burnt and uninspiring. Price didn't match food at all

I've been going to piccolo restaurant for the past 18 years or so at least once a year at pantomime time and it has genuinely been something the whole family looks forward to. We booked a table for 5pm since the show started at 7:15 and didn't want to be rushed. The usual delightful maitre d' wasn't there. We eventually... More

The food was really good, and the service was above avarage. I ordered a spaghetti bolognese and a tiramisu. The food was ready in a few minutes, and was prepared very well. The staff where very kind. The restaurant has a nice italian atmosphere, the price was avarage but worth it.

The food, service, atmosphere and price was all very good. The staff are extremely friendly, helping as much as they can. The food was of a good standard and the portions were large. Highly recommend! Will be returning.

Went to piccolos at the weekend and have been going for many years! It will always be the best Italian around with the friendliest and most attentive staff who go out of their way to make your evening as enjoyable as possible. Along with this the food is to die for and you get a real taste of Italy. Definitely... More
