Diner Reviews
  • "I recently ate at Piccolinos in Manchester and was disappointed but with a £20 incentive from their loyalty card decided to give the Knutsford restaraunt a go. We ate early on a Friday night and a large party was just finishing up but there were other tables occupied and there was a nice atmosphere. Food was so much better than my last experience. My date had the tuna, scallops and prawn skewers and I had the chicken and parsley. The skewers looked and tasted fantastic, I'll have them next time, and the chicken was moist and the balance if seasoning just right. Piccolinos is not cheap, our bill was £70 before the £20 incentive which for two mains, a couple of sides, one starter, one sweet and a drink each is a tad on the high side."

  • "The food is excellent with fresh fish specials. I had a simple baked sea bass served off the bone. Staff are great. Warm friendly and fab with kids."

  • "Booked for pre Christmas lunch with my father in law. Got two of the three orders wrong and mine a margherita pizza whilst tasty was barely warm. Waited 15minutes to be asked whether we wanted a dessert and decided we would be better going elsewhere. Main problem is the staff who have the American problem of saying all the right things but then not doing them. The following day we went to Arighi Bianchi in Macclesfield and had the dining experience would should have had at Piccolino's. We'll worth the drive or use one of the other many good restaurants in Knutsford I know we will."

  • "Shopping in Knutsford with my daughter and grandson was made even more pleasurable with a break for lunch at Piccolinos. High chair was instantly produced and whilst we perused the menu a child's portion of spag bol arrived. It must have been good, the 7 month old, sucked his way through 1/2 of it, followed by a blob of ice cream. Our food was equally as good and plentiful. Staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble and we were out within the hour. Definitel one to return to."

  • "Service was a bit non commital - I didnt think the waiters were particularly engaging. Food was pretty average. As a group of 4 we all had calamari to start with. Two of my dining partners thought it a little rubbery but everybody still polished off their plates. Mains were good especially the crab linguine but the waiter really failed to point that the veal came with no vegetables. The prawn linguine was 'swimming in butter' and so most of it was left. Whilst we didn't want to order anything else the waiter should have asked out of courtesy if there was a problem but he simply whisked it away. We have had both better service and food here before so it was a shame that on this occasion it was a bit of an anti climax to the end of our day"

  • "Food good but very expensive if you want anything in addition to the main course and I mean anything. Too many tables crowded together - being bumped every time any waiter went past - very noisy as a result of overcrowding. 5* prices and 3* ambiance"

  • "It's been a while since we have been to piccolino's and whilst the standard of food is still excellent we found the prices extremely high. We would have happily paid these prices for an evening meal, but this was Sunday lunchtime and the place was full of children and babies - felt like I was sitting in a macdonalds. We will not be returning here again for Sunday lunch but may give it a whirl one evening with friends."

  • "Very good restaurant but they are adding a 10% service fee without informing you. I feel that this is pocket picking and don't like it."

  • "Piccolino in Knutsford has to compete with lots of other restaurants but what separates it from the competition is the quality of the food, varied Italian fare which is well prepared and delicious."

  • "My wife and I and a couple of friends were staying near Knutsford. We booked Piccolino's as we like Italian. We were not disappointed. It was great. The service was superb. Nothing too much trouble. The waiters were friendly and knew their menu. The menu is extensive and the food was prepared quickly and tasted superb. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food and good service,"

  • "Early evening unbelievably busy and noisy with lost of small kids. Staff were friendly and helpful but felt very rush-squashed in. Food was unremarkable but OK not really much past pub grub. Probably trendy place to be seen but not a relaxing experience."

  • "Went to Piccolino in Knutsford last night with my hubby. Table was ready and waiting and service was good. The kitchen were a little slow bringing bread and the mash didnt arrive with the main courses and other veg. Other than that the food was excellent, the waiter Nikola was charming and pleasant."

  • "Vistied with 2 friends on a Monday night. There was a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They were very prompt to take our order and bring the food. The wine was lovley and the food was very good. Have visited many times - it's a favourite of ours for mid-week casual dining."

  • "Piccolino's in Knutsford had a pleasantly simple decor but with little or no soft furnishing it became quite noisy when full of excited diners. The service was attentive from the start but not overbearing and although we had some 'gaps' between courses our waiter kept us suitably informed of progress. The three courses we had were adequate and enjoyable but nothing remarkable (the 'special' pear and fig tart did not live up to it's billing). happy to recommend and to return but not great value."

  • "Family meal for Mothers Day - Piccolino in Knutsford was busy. The staff were great and made a great effort to make everyone feel at home and special. Food was great - the new Italian pot roast dinners were a particular success and was the home made chocolate ice cream."
    dined on 03/04/2011
  • "Once again a lovely meal at piccolino's, great starter and main course, although slightly disappointed with desert, I had the chocolate fudge cake which was very rich with the smallest scoop of ice cream I've ever seen! Apart from that everything else was good as was the atmosphere."

  • "Our booking wasn't on the restaurant booking list. They managed to find us a table, but that was just luck. Your service doesn't seem to be very reliable so i don't think we will be using you website for bookings again. The restaurant manager said it wasn't the first time that happens with opentable."

  • "Ate at Piccolino in Knutsford with two friends on a Friday night. The service was very good. We had tear and share garlic bread with olives to start with. I don't like olives and my friends were a little disapointed because they only served green and not black. Anyway the bread was nice. For main course I had the chicken pasta dish served in cream with pine nuts. I loved this dish it was very tasty! We were too full up for a desert but the coffee was very nice. Would recommend!"
