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

I had never been to Piccolino's before, and my partners parents were visiting so we decided to venture here, and we were not disappointed. The venue is well designed, modern, very clean and stylish. The service was fast and efficient with attentive and polite serving staff, and the food was very appetizing. We ordered a bread board to start and... More

Fantastic higher end Italian restaurant. Great food - either for a fussy mother-in-law! They went through a silly phase of making you wait at the bar, and did this to us a couple of times even when the restaurant was mostly empty; but we asked if we could just go to our table last time and they let us sit...

So after days of deciding where our next eat out should be we decided to try this place out as I heard some pleasant reviews about the food . Entered the restaurant and the decor was ok, the food on the other hand was awful . We could not believe how such a reputable place could serve out of the... More

Had dinner there last night. Food was decent, but a little over priced for what you get - really nothing special, indeed the promptness of the starters leads me to suspect a microwave... The real down side though was the idiotic DJ, just to loud to have much of a conversation. Don't know which genius thought that was something that... More

I recently visited the Piccolinos on bramhall and wasn't impressed but a friend booked a birthday here so I had to go. The food portions are tiny and if I'm being honest the garlic bread was thin and too crispy and pretty much tasteless. The pasta portions are childlike my boyfriend was finished in a matter of minutes and was... More
