“Worth a visit if you're in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We would never have found this restaurant by chance, but visited it during a stay with my cousin who has been there a few times.

The menu isn't extensive, but what they do, they do very well. Pizzas, at £10 each, were freshly prepared and definitely on a par with those we've had in Italy.

The wine list is extensive and also quite expensive.

Four of us had a starter and main course each, no desserts. One bottle of wine, two glasses of Prosecco and a decaff latte and the total bill was £150.

Not the cheapest, it was nice, but I wouldn't necessarily make a definite decision to return.

Visit not really enhanced by the group of women in the window table, one of whom had a laugh like a road drill. Not the restaurant's fault though.

“a taste of Italy”

not a pizza pasta restaurant - Il Piccolo serves a real taste of Italy in a warm welcoming atmosphere, where most customers become friends

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

We had seen this restaurant on an earlier visit but it was fully booked. Unusual menu items, delicious fresh food, fantastic service from the lady in charge, who spilled my glass of wine when clearing the table and immediately replaced it . Lovely to see the chef in he restaurant too - these people care about their customers and the food they serve. Not to expensive, and a lovely atmosphere for a relaxing dinner. Top drawer.
