Had a meal with my boyfriend but could hardly hear each other OR the waiters! The atmosphere wasnt great and just felt there was no personality to the place. Much prefer Croma across the road!

Had a enjoyable lunch here- the fact you get a free basket of yummy bread and olives is commended and very few places do this now. The inside of the resturaunt is lovely as is the food. Garlic bread was yummy and the chicklen ceasar was really good. My mums seafood risotto was also good. We skipped desserts because at £7 each they were not much less then the mains and i think they were a bit costly. The only thing that could have been sharper was the customer service. did not get the best reception and was left with empty plates for a large period of time but all in all would return.

I went to Piccolinos for my birthday with my daughter, we have been there on numerous occasions before. It serves the best carbonara I have ever had in my life. The food is always hot and very tasty. The staff are a credit to the restaurant they always make you feel like you are very important and have a laugh and a joke with you. If you like italian food and want great service then please go here you will not be dissappointed.
