  • "WE RECENTLY HAD AN ANNIVERSARY MEAL AT PICCOLINO'S AND WERE VERY IMPRESSED BY THE OVERALL AMBIENCE OF RESTAURANT. FROM THE FRIENDLY GREETING AS WE ENTERED TO THE BAR STAFF AND WAITING ON STAFF EVERYTHING WAS RELAXED AND INFORMAL AND NOT AT ALL STUFFY AS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED IN OTHER RESTAURANTS. THE MEAL ITSELF WAS DELICIOUS WITH A WIDE AND VARIED CHOICE. ALL IN ALL WE COULD NOT HAVE CHOSEN BETTER FOR A CELEBRATORY EVENING OUT."

  • "Booked Piccolinos as we were visiting Liverpool to see the "Giants". Despite the restaurant being busy the food was served in a timely manner and was of good quality at a reasonable price."

  • "We visited on one of the busiest days of the year, managed to book a table for six just 24 hours before and had a good time. Staff were very busy but coped well with a full restaurant. Food was good and the lively atmosphere made for a very good lunch."

    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Restaurant was very busy when we were there so was extremely noisy. Staff were excellent and attentive. We are given the choice having a drink at bar or going to our table on arrival. Food was delicious but my pasta dish was mostly pasta and very little sauce. My starter of crab and fennel crostini was very good. We enjoyed the experience and would certainly recommend Piccolino's to our friends."

  • "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."

  • "Once again a great night was had by all - The Service, food, surroundings were all excellent. My 15 year old and 13 year old absolutely love this restaurant. The Lamb is an amazing meal. The shared platter for starter was a huge succcess."

  • "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"
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "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!!!"
    dined on 14/11/2013
  • "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."
    dined on 24/09/2013
  • "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"."
    dined on 30/08/2013
  • "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"
    dined on 16/08/2013

  • "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."
    dined on 05/04/2013
  • "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"
    dined on 04/04/2013
  • "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)"
    dined on 18/03/2013
  • "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."
    dined on 10/03/2013
  • "Booked for 9 pm arrived at 8.45 . Hostess laughed when we said we had booked with top table like we had done something daft ! We were then not seated at our table til 10 pm a full hour wait ! Food was great and the rest of the service very good just disappointed with long wait ."
    dined on 02/02/2013

  • "We love Piccolino's and have been to the Liverpool branch many times. The food is lovely and the specials are always something different! I would highly recommend the butternut squash raviolli! There were a few large groups in there which made it quite noisy but plenty of space to be sat away from them if required. We will be going back but maybe not in peak time on a saturday night (to avoid the noise :D) Would recommend to a friend as a great italian"

  • "Booked a party of 4 at 7.45 and arrived promptly on time. We were told there was no record of our booking, we provided them with the confirmation e-mail to which they just looked at us confused & asked us to have a drink at the bar. We watched as group after group of people came in after us and were instantly sat at their table or asked to have a drink and were then still sat down before us. After an hour we were sat down at a make shift bar table without even an apology. It wasn't till one of our party complained that we were offered an apology. The general staff working there were very friendly and helpful and the food was great. However the same can't be said for the general management and organisation. Wanted the table for 7.45 not 8.45"
