My husband and I used to come here when we were dating and we used to say it was our place! It had a lovely atmosphere, the food was great and the service was excellent. We have since been back a few times and the last time unfortunately will be the last time. Each visit has dipped in quality. The menus became similar to a chain type restaurant. Plating up was not to the previous standard. As time has passed the music has got louder so you can barely hear yourself. (We aren't old fuddy duddys either- only in our 30s!) The waiters now shout at each other over the heads of diners. They shout for 'service' when they bring trays of food and not a smile to be seen! (The staff has changed drastically we noticed). It's just non stop stress!! The clientele has changed too. There were kids there at 9pm running along the seats (surely there should be a policy on 3 year olds running about the restaurant at 9pm on a Saturday night!!). We are so disappointed as our beloved restaurant has turned into what appears to be a bar- very loud and all about turn over rather than enjoying the experience. Please piccolinos- bring back the old way you used to run your Bristol restaurant!!
