We've been coming to Georgetown/Pawley's for years and discovered Cafe Piccolo by chance not too long after they opened. An absolute delight always -- and a gem that is off the beaten track next to a health food store, nestled back from the bustle of Hwy. 17 in Pawley's Island. The chef, Jimmy, and his wife, Amber, own and run the restaurant -- so unusual these days and makes the dining experience just that much more special. The food is lovingly prepared Italian, simple and wonderful. We were very pleased to discover that they recently expanded -- just a little bit -- which means they will be around for a long time to come!

We are now locals after years of visiting Pawleys Island. This restaurant is one of our favorites. Chef/owners Amber and Jimmy are incredible hosts. Coming from NY, I judge a restaurant initially by the smells that great me. We go here with old friends and new locals that have not tried it as it is not flagrantly visible from Hwy 17. We are never disappointed. I find the ambiance cozy. The outside is lovely and gives the feeling of being in someone's garden. But the food....oh the food! From the salad....ask Amber to do the gorgonzola and the balsamic together. And the bread....fresh baked individual loaves, crusty and perfect. My husband and I have eaten our way around the menu and are never disappointed. This is our guaranteed go to place! Some of your review criteria below I cannot answer as we always go to the restaurant,so if some of my answers are not complete, it is because we like to go there and be spoiled. As far as take out, the portions are so generous, there is always Take Home!

In the area visiting friends and decided to go out for a nice dinner. Seating on the patio was cozy and beautiful. The food was delicious from the scallops to the veal, nice wine selection and extremely friendly staff to match. Amazing evening would definitely return if back in the area.

For starters have the burrata cheese appetizer. I enjoyed veal franchise (delightful) and Thomas had sorrier to chicken. Not a moment of disappointment t and it was a Mothers Day treat. We skipped dessert since we had created one at home but the dessert are worth the extra treat. This is a small venue with outdoor dining and an expanded dining area with service that matches the best Pawleys offers. If you want a dining experience a bit off the golfer grid join Jim and Amber and their excellent staff - you will not be disappointed.
