We dined here last night on the spare of the moment. We had no reservation and walked in at prime time 7pm. We didn't have a problem getting a table. First impressions of this plae were good, there was a lovely smell flowing through the restaurant and some back ground music. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. We had spicy sausage & garlic bread with cheese to start, followed by Chicken risotto and linguine carbonara and a glass of house rose wine to wash it down. Our meals were very rich tasting and we both struggled to finish. I agree that on 1st glance the menu does seem expensive but it's worth it so give it a try. I am a massive fan of Piccolino's and I must say this matched their food. We will definately be back to work our way through the menu and sample a dessert next time.
