It is a tiny, cafe style restaurant. The type that I enjoy. Unfortunately the service was indifferent, if not grumpy. The pizzas were pretty good, but not fantastic. And for the price I expected better. There is a better option a few blocks down.

The food was lovely , big portions and the combinations on their pizza's blew my mind. They have also changed their look which makes the atmosphere even better! Can't wait to go back!

Their four-cheese pasta has to be the best Ihave tasted. My friend had pizza, which was delicious. A good variety, and different options than most Italian spots.

Great pizzas, really good, filling salads. Service is always cheerful and polite, but can be leisurely.

I have eaten pizzas and pastas all over the world and can honestly say that Piccola has THE BEST pizza and pasta in the whole world. Try their Stacatto pasta or chillies prawn pizza (can't remember the name). Really great food!

AMAZING pizza, all sorts of different tastes of pizza and pasta. Try the pizza with camembert chease, sesame seeds, sweet fried onion, and cranberry on the side.
