My American friend and I were out shopping and decided to stop into Piccolos for something to brunch on! They were very busy at the time and as one their Staff had gone home sick shortly after opening, the remaining Staff were absolutely running. However, many hands make light work and the Cashier was straight up front with us about the fact it would be 35-40 minutes waiting for our meals to arrive. For us that was fine, and in the interim we enjoyed a mug of coffee and cappuccino (within 15 minutes of seating) which really hit the spot! The standard of customer service, the wonderful fresh quality of the food, and the mid range prices really make a stopover at Piccolos a wonderful experience, whether you're local or entertaining friends, or a tourist seeking value for money brunch.
Piccolos also offers a variety of different seating arrangements, too which gives excellent ambience to the setting. I commend Piccolos to you as a worthy brunch venue to check out next time you're venturing through the Mall. Bon Aperitif....

Husband ordered eggs benedict, i had the steak sandwich and our (Alice) friend one of their salads. Portions were ginormous! The wait for food was long though there weren't that many customers. Would have to say Piccolos would warrant a second visit.

Located near the Tourist Center, this looks like the busiest and most popular restaurant in town. And justifiably so. They serve very good food and great milk shakes. Because they're so busy, you may have to wait a little, but the service is very good.

Once upon a time Piccolo’s was a fantastic place to eat. In recent years it slowly changed, now it is a mediocre place to eat. Having new owners earlier this year, I was hoping to see some changes to be had, with inspiration from a major city, sadly this did not transpire. It is the exact same menu it has been for years. Unfortunately, they’re unable to produce softly poached eggs, as requested (on more than one occasion) the food is not exciting. I understand some customers prefer the menu not to change, however, an introduction of a few new dishes, and for us to experience what the new owner has to offer, would be a good start.
