A word from Piccolo Mondo
Piccolo Mondo restaurant in Glasgow has a special history. Forty five years ago, the Tuscan Pierotti family opened a restaurant called Piccolo Mondo, which was hugely popular and beloved. They then sold it and were involved in many other eateries here, including La Fiorentina. But they always regretted letting it go, and have now opened a new, upgraded Piccolo Mondo, a renaissance of an old dream. It’s a classically beautiful space in a former bank, with soaring vaulted ceilings, paintings, warm pale terra cotta walls, Tuscan red table linens, chandeliers and red velvet seating. The menu employs seasonal ingredients of the highest standard in creating delicate Euro classic and new Mediterranean dishes. The Pierotti family have a wealth of experience and pride in their establishment and it shows, from the superb service to the authentic recipes to the calm, pleasurable ambience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I took my mum here for lunch on a visit to Glasgow and was impressed by the attentiveness of the waiter, he was friendly and funny and made my mum feel special. Then he went off shift and his replacement didnt match - shame. However it didnt take away our enjoyment of the lunch. Everything was delicious, but you do need to like tomato sauce as almost all pasta dishes have tomato sauce. I can thoroughly recommend the lasagne!"

  • "I took a group of business collegues ( 9 in total ) to the restaruant as I had been before and enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately on this occasion the service was extremely poor and with having to pay a 10% non optional service charge this realy rubbed salt in the wound."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Very good value for money. Exceptional service with very attentive waiters. The food was excellent. Highly recommend a visit. My only problem is that it spoils you and you get disappointed if you go anywhere else"

  • "We booked an early table as we had theatre tickets. The meal was OK, the service was OK and it was good value for money . I'm not sure I'd recommend this restaurant for anything other than a fairly decent place to eat when you're in a bit of a hurry. Pretty good value for money, though."

  • "Good meal as always. One of my favourite lunch spots. Had to wait a while for our table but otherwise very good."

  • "Excellent value 2 course lunch. Nicely cooked, reasonably presented. Friendly staff. You've gotta like tomatoes, though. Only one mains option was tomato-free!"

  • "This is the first time we have been to Picola Mondo and it won`t be the last. It is a good venue for central Glasgow dining. Food and ambiance were good, accompanied by friendly service."

  • "At a loose end in Glasgow I decided to go to this restaurant which I had been to previously. I had a very good meal with good service which was fairly expensive. The food was highly seasoned and as the use of much added salt is not usual these days it was a bit of a surprise. I asked for my steak to be rare which indeed it was. As I was alone I had a glass of red wine which was recommended and extrely palatable. It is a busy bustling place with many obviously happy customers."

  • "Great value for money on Celebration Menu. Only negative is we felt we were a bit rushed......no time to digest food between courses. We did ask for a rest before dessert and had a break of about 3 mins! Which we were thankful for. If I I was to visit again we would ask for a rest before each course, as the food was delicious but never had anytime to savour the taste. Shame really!"

  • "Many thanks for a most enjoyable dinner. Our party of six had a wonderful night especially my wife whose 70th birthday it was. Your presentation of the cake was spot on. Patrick McColgan"

  • "A most welcoming and pleasant place to meet friends and talk! Food, wine and staff combine to let Glasgow diners enjoy a taste of the bel paese. Hope to book in again, before too long."

  • "Love the atmosphere & decor, so cosy for change, love tablecloths and drapes in restaurants. Many restaurants have gone all contemporary to point of being ununique with cold hard atmosphere. Piccolo Mondi manages to keep fresh and modern whilst keep old fashioned warm initimate feeling & good old fashioned proper service. Staff very attentive. Only 1 criticism, found the sauce used in the Lasagne & the Seafood Pasta Dish and the Prawn and Mushroom Pot starter to be all the exact same sauce. Although lovely it is,it seems bit repetitive through menu. Would expet the Lasagne to taste very different from the Seafood Marinara Pasta Dish, it didn't really (exception fish taste through) & Lasagne had lot of pasta sheets but not enough mince."

  • "Booked my table after reading great reviews on trip advisor. Was not disappointed. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere, only a few yards from our hotel. The Celebration Meal for two is excellent value at £55.00. Includes an aperitif each, starter, main course and sweet, then coffee and mints and an after meal drink. ( I had grappa) Included is a bottle of wine to have with the meal too. A Fab Italian Restaurant!"

  • "As I had been to this restaurant several times previously I thought it would be a good place to take my sister since she is not up in Scotland very often. We had lunch and my sister enjoyed it . Mine was not up to the standard that I have had before in Piccolo Mondo - maybe just a one off but disappointing"
