Wowsers! returned for first time in years and Picciolo didn't dissappoint. Amazing food simple recipes handed down through the ages with robust flavours that just burst in the mouth.
Superb service, incredible value (€30 for 12 plates) and information about the provenance and history of each dish. Great ambience...a perfect night. Thanks Silvano and all of your staff

Silvano presents each of the twelve courses on his menu with such enthusiasm one is caught up in the story of the contents.I expected to be stuffed after all those dishes but not at all. In holiday eating this is the last night of the proms.

This is not just a meal but a culinary education and performance. Don't eat lunch beforehand if going for dinner! Brilliant selection of marvellous food, all at very good value.

We had an excellent meal last night at this atmospheric restaurant in the ancient hamlet of Castello di Vestignano. The restaurant is small but perfectly formed! Silvano is a great host who has obviously researched his subject well. His mother has been a source of inspiration for many of the dishes and also helps him in the kitchen.

We have had 'taster menus' and have often felt uncomfortably full and vowed never to do it again but ... after 12 plates we felt comfortable and satisfied rather than bloated and reaching for the indigestion tablets :)

It's a bit of a schlep but we stayed in a b&b rather than drive home. Would we go again? Oh yes.
