“Our first visit and it won't be our last, wonderful atmosphere and service!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was the first time dining at Piccolino and it certainly will not be my last. I booked a table in advance for a group of 4 for lunch.

The staff were very welcoming and service is fantastic. personally for me service makes the whole experiencing of dining the most important, so therefore first impressions count and the service was fantastic. we were greeted in a very welcoming way. The staff gave us an potion of dining outside or in, as it was a nice day we decided to take a table outside.

The whole atmosphere is wonderful, it was cosy and we sat on sofa like seating. The waiter was attentive and read through the specials with us. We all chose a pasta dish and the food was exceptional. Pasta was tasty and cooked perfectly. I would recommend the spicy sausage pasta and aubergine pasta. Portions are also very good.

Next time we will dine inside. We had a sneaky look inside before we left and the decor was trendy and stylish, definitely going to try dining inside next time, atmosphere seemed great and we could hear staff singing happy birthday to groups of diners inside, how nice is that?

Thank you to the staff at Piccolino who made our first visit exceptional. we will definitely be seeing you very soon.

“like italian like piccolino's”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

my wife and i have allways visited piccolinos when we visit london, we have never benn disapointed, if we have to wait for a table there is a smart cosmopoliton bar downstairs or sit outside in summer, i recently had carpccio and fillet steak, the carpaccio was was so thinly cut they must have used a razor it was fantastic, the steak cooked to perfection,service is smart and swift.

“Excellent food, nice atmosphere, good service”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our family of four enjoyed rib eye steaks, spinach ravioli, tiramisu and wine. It was a great atmosphere on a side street away from the hectic Regent street. Great service and a special last meal on our last night in London.

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant doesn't look too bad with a nice outdoor section and comfy banquette indoors. However, food was a big letdown: tasteless and overcooked pasta, overdressed salads, hard and dry bread. Avoid.
