We've been several times and the service and food has always been of a high quality. Great menu choice and great service too. If you're looking for a good Italian, would highly recommend.

Disappointing food - I ordered a lasagne and it was awful. The lasagne was over cooked, the pasta itself turned to mush when cutting through it. It was more like mashed potato. Any sauce had been microwaved to death and was hardly there any more. On complaining, the waitress told me that was how it was cooked in Italy. I... More

Myself & 3 colleagues visited on 01/12/16. Two of them had been before & said it was very good. It was 9pm & we hadn't got a reservation. After ordering a drink we waited for less than 5 minutes to be seated. 3 of us had the Fritto Misto to share for a starter. What a great choice everything tasted... More

In Italy, especially Sicily, every single restaurant or cafe ALWAYS has good quality bread on every table by default. Here, I had to ask for it, it came reluctantly, and it was scrappy. No oil and balsamic either. Real Italians would avoid this place like the plague. There's no respect for customers (whose wishes, by the way, should come first).... More

I booked this restaurant with high hopes as I had heard some good reviews before. The service was fine but the food was not up to scratch at all. My partner ordered a £25 veal dish (as a treat) and was surprised to find that it came with only a tiny bit of spinach and some watery gravy. The meat... More

Looked forward to a Christmassy evening at Piccolino's so I made sure I booked well in advance and confirmed by phone on the day. We arrived on time but then waited over 40 mins for a table, to then be told we were going to be put on a table in between the front desk and front door (once it... More

Went on a Saturday night with my partner, restaurant was already very busy early on in the evening. Very impressive aesthetically, from the seated decking area at the front, right through the restaurant, making for a lovely atmosphere overall. Staff were very attentive without being overbearing, and given how stunning a place this is with waiting staff who are a... More

This restaurant provided first class food with attentive but not in your face service. Food was fresh and portions just right. Cost was £36 a head including wine but excluding tip. Happy to recommend and revisit

Got invited to one of my friends birthday parties here. It was all booked well in advance and on a Monday evening ( and quite in the restaurant) yet the service was poor and the food was dire . I have eaten here several times and never had a bad experience before. When I challenged the manager he just seemed... More
