Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Honestly a hidden gem. Huge portions, friendly and welcoming staff and amazing pricing. We both audibly reacted to the size of the portions and the hugeness of the meat calzone (that wasn’t any air!! It was all meat!!) can tell the chef cooks with passion...for the food, and for his customers as he’s who took our order! First valentines with my partner well spent. It’s rare to get a meal with sides and a drink, for under £40 and have left overs to take home. Would recommend to anyone, especially if you’re on a budget, take advantage of their lunch menu, will be returning during the week for the 2 for £15 menu.More

We had an appointment in Hull so looked for somewhere nice for lunch. After a bit of research we decided to try Piccolo Italian Bistro on Chanterlands Avenue as it looked good & was not far from where our appointment was. Wow, what a great...decision! We were greeted warmly by the front of house young lady & shown to a table. Straight away I thought this would be good as it was only 12:15 on Thursday lunchtime & almost all the downstairs tables were already taken. Menus given & drinks order taken quickly which we like as you can enjoy a drink whilst perusing the menu. My partner chose the Gamberoni (King prawns) followed by Branzino (Sea bass fillets) whilst I decided on Polpetta (meatballs) then Filetto al Pepe (Pan-fried beef fillet strips in creamy peppercorn sauce) A bottle of wine was chosen to accompany this & we sat chatting in anticipation of some nice food. Well we weren't disappointed. Lovely starters & then delicious mains were served up with just the right amount of time in between. There was a vibrant atmosphere in the bistro, some nice background music & plenty of chatter from what appeared to be many regulars having lunch which is always a good sign! One dessert to share & a couple of very good cocktails each finished off a delightful lunch. We had a nice chat with the Italian waitress/ front of house/ bakery shop assistant about looking after customers as we have close links to the hospitality trade. She worked very hard doing all this & made it look easy juggling all this & keeping everybody happy! A credit to the business. We also learned about some nice places to visit in Italy. Chatting to the owner/chef & found out he used to work at a nice Italian restaurant in our home town of Beverley many years ago. All in all, a delightful lunchtime experience, nice atmosphere, great service & wonderful food. We will definitely be repeating this the next time we visit Hull (in about 4 weeks!) & we will also take friends there for dinner one evening very soon. There are many restaurants, cafes, bistros dotted about these days so it is nice when you drop onto a good one & Piccolo is definitely a good one!More

A small Italian restaurant with amazing food, we have been on 4 occasions now all visits the food has been top notch, currently working my way through the starters (fish cakes current favourite) then as much as I’d love to try everything on the main...menu eventually, when a chef cooks a fillet steak I could cut with a spoon so perfectly I just keep going back to what I know best. Garlic mushrooms brilliant 👌🏼(just make sure your partner eats them to)🤣 Absolutely incredible.More

I have to say that this cook knows how to do a good steak. Sometimes I am wary of ordering steak, as it's usually the most expensive item on the menu and it can be hugely disappointing. However, I decided to risk ordering the fillet...steak. I didn't order a starter because I didn't want to spoil my main course. I was so glad that I didn't, because the steak arrived and was very thick. In spite of this, it melted in my mouth. It was delicious. So few restaurants are able to get this right, but Piccolo did. I was very impressed. Hoping to go again with the hubby, as he would LOVE the steak and the way they do it here. Just hoping the chef doesn't change!More

Visited recently, food was excellent and well presented,staff are very helpful and friendly.the restaurant was just about full and we had no problem with the service,asked if everything was ok on two occasions. This restaurant has character and nice atmosphere which you don’t get in...the big fancy restaurants, with extortionate prices. This was our third visit and it did not disappoint,will be visiting again soon.More
