The menu has a lot of choice without being overwhelming. Again, the wine list has plenty of choice without making it a challenge. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious, prepared to perfection and all round first class. It was a pleasure to have a dining experience that didn't involve a safari through the menu or... More

So pleased that we decided to give them a try, a delightful experience, fantastic wait staff, the menu was full of the sort of dishes you would expect from a good Italian restaurant and we were not disappointed. I had the pate, the crab lasagne, followed by mousse. The staff were a delight, the food outstanding, overall a delightful experience.... More

What an absolute shame - this little restaurant is in a gorgeous building and could do a great business apart from the overall rudeness of one waitress in particular - not the lovely Italian ladies. We ordered an entree and asked if we could have a break in between courses. An hour later my husband asked why the meals were... More

Nice stylish restaurant, and elegant Italian staff, but my duck was a little dry. My husband had gnocci, and he said it was perfect. My children liked their pizzas too.

We had an adequate but unexciting meal at Piccolo one evening, with pasta, salads and a bottle of wine. The veranda is the more pleasant part of the restaurant as the interior is a bit dark and dis-jointed in looks. The meal was fine but nothing special, and the service on the slow side, despite there not being many guests.... More
