A word from Piccolino Liverpool
Located on Cook Street in Liverpool, Piccolino brings a true taste of Italy to the heart of the city. The restaurant offers a wonderful combination of both modern and classic Italian dishes prepared in an open kitchen in full view of diners. Fresh pasta is made daily from scratch in our pasta kitchen and is a charming spectacle for guests to watch. Our dishes are rustic, simple and delicious and are created using the best, freshest ingredients.Continued

  • "We visit Liverpool a lot, as a couple to see family, & for business. And we're making this place our home from home. Other Italian 'chain' restaurants just don't compare with it. Service is superb, with waiting staff who seem to genuinely enjoy their work, & who enthuse about the food. The menu is extensive enough to make choosing a long, pleasurable process - you may have to order the wine before your meal, as we did! Set menus are excellent value. I ate a dessert here for the first time in decades - lemon polenta cake with caramelised oranges. Fab."

  • "Booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and glad we did - very convenient location to our hotel. Was very busy Fri night but greeting was warm and attentive. Service could not have been better - no long waits and constant attention (without being intrusive). Food was very good and they even stuck a candle in my husband's pudding and all the waiters sang 'happy birthday' to him as I had mentioned that we were in Liverpool for his 40th birthday (just watch out for the silver trays!). All in all very good value for money and would definitely visit again."

  • "On arriving at the venue we were welcomed most warmly and invited to take a drink in the bar. Our coats were taken. We were shown to our table and the service throughout our time there was fantastic. Helpful, engaging but not too much. The food was divine from the starter through too dessert. A real gem in the city of Liverpool's crown of great places to visit for a dining experience."

  • "We didn't even notice that there was a delay on out food - perhaps the drinks were flowing too easily. However the floor manager apologised and gave us a free round of drinks. Great food and ambiance just allows good conversation to flow"

  • "This restaurant is best for hen parties and noisy nights out. The layout is not good for pleasant evenings out for the older generation, and by that I mean it is so noisy that having a general conversation is impossible especially when we get the rendition of the loudest "Happy Birthday" you have ever heard!!!"

  • "Visited last week as was staying in the city with work colleagues. We had a booth which was great and the service was good. Food was all delicious, only comment was that ordered the daily specials soup as a starter but rissotto was delievered, we didnt say anything as we were on a time schedule. Rissotto was also delicious which was handy. This might have been as we had a loud group behind the waiter so hard to hear us. Special mentions to the aubergine Penne for main and also the Tiramisu. Would definately recommend this restaurant and will definately be back."

  • "No nonsense italian food at a affordable value. The sideorders had great taste, and the main courses was excellent. The service was very good, especially as we were "a noisy company"."

  • "I have been here several times and was excited to come again.... However things were not great. We arrived and were placed upstairs... On our own on a tiny table and could hardly move. Next thing a buzzing fly would not leave us alone. The starter came which was asparagus however the portions had gone smaller and the egg was freezing and the white was sloppy. The mozorella and tomato was lovely though. Spaghetti carbonara by boyfriend had was quite bland. The service was good and quick. This was not my best experience here"

  • "We ate at Piccolino as an ending to Ladies Day at Aintree and we couldn't have picked a better ending. As you would imagine the restaurant was extremely busy but this did not affect the standard of the food or service. Outstanding as always."

  • "We visited Piccolinos on Thursday 4th April, the place was really busy and had a good atmosphere, the food choice was great and our starter fab, when the main came the steak was cold for 2 of the 4 meals, the manager dealt with this really quickly and well and i think was just one of those things, we would def revisit and would recomment the restaurant to anyone visiting the area, the prices are at the top end for what is served but there is an excellent choice and the staff are really great"

  • "Had dinner here, food very good. music was invasively loud when we sat down, asked waiter to reduce the volume, he immediately obliged and with good grace. Would reccommend. Of the 4 restaurants we tried ( the others were panorama 34, Alma de cuba, &The french bistro on Hanover St,) this overall came out second)"

  • "I booked piccolinos for mothers day based upon reviews and i can say im really pleased i did. From the moment we stepped in we were made to feel welcome. Nice touch of taking coats, prompt and efficient service. We were not rushed and we were not left too long between orders it was just right. Staff really pleasant and professional and the food was delicious and i cannot fault the price. My mum loved it too. We will definitely be going again."

  • "The food was Ok but the service was quite disappointing with long delays between courses and they couldn''t cope with providing a small plare for a three year old. So, overallnot very good value.."
