    The staff made the night, Laura was exceptionally attentive making sure the party table was happy& not wanting for anything. Excellent customer service and went the extra mile by presenting a cake for my sons 21st birthday. Also the other waitress’s were fantastic especially the lady that served the wine! The food was as always delicious.. the only thing I had to note was the lighting which had gone above the area we sat in which made reading the menu difficult.

    Paid a £20 deposit via open table it was not deducted from the final bill so in the process of trying to resolve that, Food was nice , was brought courgette fries instead of normal fries but that was easily sorted. Pizza was really nice , girlfriend liked her pasta Server was polite and happy

    Half price wine was nice but complicated to sort out with no internet available. I would have preferred both sweets arriving at the table at the same time. Slanted mirrors on wall is a good idea. Overall a good experience.

    Had to send back my pasta main course as it was dry an cold. They replenished it but still kept full service charge on the bill! One of the waitresses was rude and disinterested. Quite expensive for what we had. Didn’t mention the loyalty scheme either. Won’t return.

    It was nice however wouldn't recommend as the food wasn't as good as we would have expected. We shared a garlic bread with cheese for starter however this had multiple burns on the bread. It also didn't taste of garlic. I had Carbonara in the traditional way for main and my husband had a pizza. The carbonara had a thin sauce which tasted of burnt bacon and was incredibly over peppered. Overall leaving a bad taste to the mouth. The pizza was fine. We had desserts, both which were fine. We didn't want to complain as it was extremely busy buy it the quality was definitely off.

    Went on the January 50% off deal. The food was perfect as was the service from the waiting staff. Unfortunately one of the older Italian guys who took our order was very snappy and impatient and my guest felt pressured to make a decision when she asked a question about a dish. So unpleasant that I would not want to be served by him again. All other staff were lovely

    We went for the 50% off food January deal. When the pasta portions arrived it was shocking - they were smaller than a starter portion. They may be offering 50% off food but they're also doing more than 50% less of the food itself! When the waiting staff brought it to our table I could see they were embarrassed as my family and I looked so shocked. I complained to the manager and he just shrugged his shoulders and apologised and said there was nothing he could do and that, yes, the portions were smaller at the moment because of the 50% deal and that's what the company (Individual Restaurants) had said they had to do. Shocking. We've always been big fans of Piccolino but over the years the prices have crept up to a ridiculous level and now this. We won't be back. They have lost regular and loyal customers.
