“WOW!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Amazing cafe, great service with friendly staff and superb gourmet pizzas. Food arrived promptly, ingredients were fresh, flavoursome and succulent. The dessert pizzas are highly reccommended, the best dessert I've EVER had! Same goes for the hot chocolate. I'll be making a trip back here just for another chocolate dessert pizza at the end of my travels. Give them a go, you won't regret it!

“Used to be good, bit rubbish now.”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Had pizza here a year ago and again this weekend, 1 Mar 2014. They were in the premises now occupied by Flynn's "Oirish" Bar and back then their pizza was great. Now it's dreadful - just some foreign teenagers throwing a handful of ingredients and a bucket of salt onto a tough old base while texting their mates. They are still charging the same though, as they continue to do business based on the good reputation of the previous owner/chef.

“Great Pizza - Service Average”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Ate at Piccolino's twice whilst in Hanmer. Both times couldn't fault the pizza, although just had the basic range of pizza. This restaurant is actually Springs Deli Café during the day but after 5pm becomes Piccolino's Café. Unfortunately the same staff that served us during lunch at Springs Deli were also the same staff that served us for pizza. They looked jaded, disinterested and made no attempt to upsell food or offer any drinks. This wouldn't stop me going back as the food was good for a quick bite.

“No service...”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Got sick of waiting for surly staff to pay any attention to us then walked off to a place which actually welcomed customers.
