3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We were rather disappointed with our recent visit. The service was rather slow and the portions were rather small in size. It is a great pity as the restaurant has good position and friendly staff.

Give Piccolo a go. The first time I visited, the restaurant was packed, fortunately somebody phoned and cancelled their reservation as I was asking if they had any tables available, so we were seated straight away. Second time, I made reservations, as I didn't want to wait and I'm very happy I did, as again the restaurant was packed! My... More

We visited here after a recommendation from a friend. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious and arrived quickly. Such a cosy restaurant with a reasonable view of the front. Worth a visit.

Went for an early evening meal and we were warmly welcomed. Food arrived quickly and was very tasty and well cooked. Chose this place over its two neighbours on looks but would go back here based on quality.

We were a group of 15, slightly less numbers than originally expected. The proprietor painlessly amended our seating to one long table instead of two. Complimentary garlic bread was a nice touch whilst we per used the menu. Starters and mains were wonderful and delivered without too much delay considering the size of our group. Bit disappointed that we were... More

After 40mins they brought us a bread basket of home made stale bread hard enough in places to break the plate. After an hour we had our disappointing mains. Wife struggles with a bland veal and pasta dish while I finished my two slices of lamb, which at least had some flavor I guess. Given an extra star on account... More

On passing my driving test in the dim and distant 1970's, I ventured out for a drive along Westcliff seafront. My pal and I decided that we would happen upon a new Italian restaurant that had recently opened. Greeted by a youthful pairing named Bruno and Nicky, we were warmly welcomed in in true Italian-style. Corn-on-the-cob at 35p was my... More
