We chose Caffe Piccolo because they have a gluten-free menu serving not only GF pasta but also, to my delight, GF bread (which I rarely find)!!! I had Mussels alla Piccolo (fra diavlo) and a house salad. Some of the best seafood I've ever had. A friend had the Pasta Bolognese, which was excellent. If you're close to Pawley's Island,... More

My wife & I shared the Mussels alla Picollo. Wonderfully prepared. The broth had a nice citrusy taste to it. Clean and not rich. The fennel and pancetta rounded out the taste very nicely. The rustic bread allowed us to sop up the broth with delight. The peaceful setting of the garden with its water feature added to the ambiance.... More

Wonderful food. Wonderful staff. Wonderful setting! This hidden gem is a must when dining in Pawleys. Service and conversation with Curtis was so enjoyable. And our dinners were all perfect - pasta, seafood, appetizers - so delicious! Outdoor dining is private and a bonus for larger parties. Make a reservation - ample room with in and outdoor seating - however... More

The food is great! Fresh noodles and perfectly cooked seafood. Highly reccomend the scallops. Be prepared it is on the expensive side. In the summer you may need a reservation. Off season you can enjoy dining outside. Also there is a full service bar.

Went to Cafe Piccolo for our anniversary dinner and was, as usual, very pleased. Piccolo is a small, cozy Italian restaurant that never disappoints. Starting with a Prosecco for a celebratory toast we both ordered the special of veal Gorgonzola which was outstanding accompanied with an Opera Chianti. Kurt, our wonderfully attentive waiter, surprised us by telling that our son... More

We were on a beach family vacation on Pawley's Island renting a house. Cafe Piccolo was recommended to my husband and I for a date night out. We loved it. The food was excellent. It is real Italian. The chef is superb. Everyone working there was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We ordered from the specials of the evening which was... More

While on vacation, we discovered Piccolo's on the internet when looking for the best Italian restaurants in the area. We were not disappointed at all! The service was awesome, and the atmosphere outside was spectacular with lighting, a fountain and gardens. The food was exceptional! Our favorite was the freshly made Caesar salad... the flavors alone are worth the trip!... More
