Description: Piccola Cucina is located a few steps from Diocletian palace, near the old Muslim church and Bifora cafe. We are very small place with limited but tasty menu. If you want to try domestic prosciutto and white cheese, fresh fish and meat, burger in somun (pljeskavica)or daily dishes and pasta, you are on the righ place.

“Amazing local restaurant”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Piccolo Cucina is a wonderfull small local restaurant in the old centre of Split. The food is all local and very tasty. But the staff is what makes the restaurant unforgettable. When i was there, there was just one man working and he was both waiter and cook. He clearly worked with passion and made sure we got everything we needed. I would definitely recommend eating here if you are looking for a local restaurant!

“Great food and excellent staff”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We looked for a place to have dinner in Split and decided to go for Piccolo Cucina. We had a meatplate for 2 persons and it was absolutely delicious! But the most memorable for us was the service which was absolutely fantastic. There was 1 person working at the time and he was doing everything on his own with a true passion and a smile on his face, that you dont see too often. 5 stars for this place!

“Fantastic place to eat !!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

I wouldn't exactly agree with the term "fast food" describing what's on offer. I'd rather say it's delicious local food: seafood, meat, dried ham, cheese…
My friend and I went to Piccolo's two days ago and we had an amazing supper. The restaurant is tiny with only two tables outside. Another traveller joined our table for a little while sharing his order of absolutely delicious ham with us. We ourselves decided to try the fish plate for two which is served with octopus salad and bread. Plenty of food with extraordinarily good quality.
As we had to wait for our dish "such a very long time" as the owner put it, he brought us Limoncello to enjoy. It was in fact only twenty minutes waiting time.
If you sit at the table opposite the entrance you can watch how the food is cooked. The evening we were there the owner was there on his own being waiter and cook at the same time. Later on his cousin joined as a waitress. Both were so unbelievably friendly. It was a joyful evening for us and hadn't we left the day after we would have definitely returned for more amazing food.
It's an unique adventure to eat at this place and everyone who doesn't enjoy eating at crowded tourist locations shouldn't miss the chance to spend a wonderful lunch or supper here.
