“Perfect Pasta”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My husband and I had arrived in Corbridge in the late afternoon and needed to book a table somewhere in the village to eat. Everywhere we went it was fully booked. We discovered the small quaint and interesting Il Piccolo and were also told they were full...however, the hostess (owners wife) suggested that if we wanted to stay, although it was rather early, she could accomodate us before the maddening crowd.....we decided to take her up on her offer and were quite amazed at the lovely food, the friendliness, the atmoshphere and the fantastic service we received. Would recommend this one!

“Private Function”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We organised a private party here and the staff were flexible and attentive. good atmosphere and an unhurried approach to delivering an Italian menu.

We had a fair choice of menu items , lovely antipasti (if you avoided the ferocious chilli-stuffed olives !) and very quaffable house wine.

No complaints from any of our party.

“good, honest food”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

We hadn't booked a table in advance, so had to wait a while, but it was recommended by our host and was worth it. We had a very tasty meal, with good-sized portions, and a good choice of wine. Nice atmosphere, too. Will definitely book ahead next time, and will try the desserts too.

“Fine if not special”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Despite mixed reviews, decided to try Il Piccolo. Good service and wine list. Enjoyed sardine starter and meatballs with spaghetti. Friends' pizzas had good topping, to the edges but were so thin and crispy they were difficult to cut through. Early bird menu was available. Prices were reasonable.

“will not return”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We met some friends who had suggested this restaurant. Three had calves liver,the onion gravy had raw onions in it and instead of being served with mash as it normally is they gave us micorwaved baked potatoes and 1 floret of virtually uncooked brocolli. I am no cook but I would have been ashamed to serve this up. Let's not even mention the starter . find somewhere else to eat. The wine was OK.
