I’ve been here a few times with groups and I like the outside tables and the location generally. The food is fine but we had to send back a main chicken dish and the main crab salad as they were very small portions and not value for money compared to other dishes. The chicken Milanese was conversely enormous. The zucchini fries were all fat and no courgette this time as opposed to being normal chip size. Waiters tried their best but did tip the starter platter all over the table.
Food was delicious but service was poor. It was a day and they were very busy, but I had to get the waiters attention at every single stage in the meal rather than actually being served.
Really lovely menu - I could have ordered everything
Service was great but the crab pasta lacked crab and one of the hot pizza with broccoli was very bland. My diavalo great. brilliant location.
We were after a casual business meal ... al fresco. Heddon Street is pedestrian only so the outdoor atmosphere was fabulous. Food was great. Service excellent. This restaurant met our expectations. Although we were 10 minutes late for the early supper menu we were allowed to select from this lower priced menu. Food and wine came to £40pp including wine which was reasonable. Thank you Piccolino.
Nice food a bit expensive
The thing that made the restaurant was two things.
The weather was lovely so we sat outside till after 10pm.
However the staff and service was excellent. We would of probably gone to a bar earlier after our meal but for Salah and his team. Very friendly, catered to our needs and were just really nice people, every one of them.
Would highly recommend!!!!!
One of my favourite restaurants great food and very friendly staff, I look forward to coming back
Excellent food and the place was buzzing at lunch time. It had a relaxed atmosphere
Waiters and bar staff very friendly. Always a good place to return to
The staff are very helpful and friendly - I wish all restaurants were like this. Fairly generous portions of great food. Can thoroughly recommend.
Really lovely waiter, lovely atmosphere and great food....well the food that actually came!
We ordered two starters which never actually came- just the main, though it meant we could have desert. We were charged for them as well but taken off when told. Asked for a coffee when the mains came...came straight away and asked for no ice in coke....it had ice!
Had a great lazy lunch, food was tasty and cooked well. Great service from Gabriele Giarratano and Claudio Altimari!
Unfortunately month after month service decreases quality, food as well, this from a customer they goes for years and years.
A beer takes 10min to the table, when the restaurant is almost empty.
Excellent food. Excellent service.
Really enjoyed our evening here! Food is nice - not remarkable, but very nice. Service was great. Reasonable bill at the end of the night too. Will go again!
Surprised at good reviews - inattentive service - 30 minutrs after ordering was told they were out of chicken milanese. Poor ambiance (downstairs), very bland food, and continually needed to wave down staff to order anything. Pick a better option.
Very nice meal in buzzy restaurant. Good variety on the menu. Waiter was very good but did seem to be covering a very big station. Good location.
A good price/quality Italian restaurant only a pity that it was that noisy and the table we received after reservation was next to a draughty entrance. Food was really nice though, prepared with natural ingredients.
Ok nothing special
Great food and service
Service is extremely slow. Second time I have visited and the steak I ordered this time was completely different. It looked as thought it had been flattened to a pulp! And tasted chargrilled from the burnt pan. Very overpriced for poor food and slow service.
I was recommended the restaurant however it didn't live up to expectations. Service was a bit slow and my pizza was underwhelming. Its fine for an informal lunch however there are many better options in the area.
Only down side was a staff door we were seated next too which the staff kept slamming without consideration throughout our visit. Otherwise this is a great restaurant.
Bon restaurant, très animé avec de la musique assez forte. Bien situé au centre de Londres. Nourriture bonne, service moins rapide que d'habitude. Prix assez élevé, mais c'est au centre de Londres...
been a few times now, great atmosphere , lovely food
Great atmosphere as always & good food
Visited on Christmas Eve at 6.00 p.m. and unfortunately it appeared that all staff including the chefs has packed up for Christmas. The menu was limited with 4 steak / veal dishes not available.
Pizza was over cooked and left to get cold, Penne pasta was undercooked and not al dente. Roast potatoes were cold and green vegetables were undercooked. The service was not up to the usual standard and even getting ice was a problem. I spoke to the manager who was most apologetic and agreed not to charge for the main courses. It appeared that other diners near us were experiencing similar problems.
This was disappointing all round and certainly not what we have experienced on previous visits.
Great time and great food! Really good service, efficient and quick! Would go back again! Ceaser salad was best I’ve ever had!
We came back here as it was here we had our first date over a year ago......and it was very special to revisit and reminisce! The food and service we as good as we remembered and we had another very special evening. We’ll be back without a doubt!
Pre Xmas office parties made for a fascinating, chaotic experience. The staff were amazing handling multiple clients professionally and calmly ... or so i5 appeared. No question of quiet conversation! Not a criticism but a reality of Mid December Friday night bookings. Food was as good as ever, especially liked the bruschetta miste starter for two. We will definately return for our annual pilgrimage to Piccolino’s ....
Service was not great at all and value for money was definitely not good.
As always, great service and great food. The menu is vast and typically Italian, but could be simplified for lunch. Normally squeezed in a bit but took a high table at the bar today which was better. All in all, a good restaurant in a great location.
My linguini and prawns main meal cost £15 so I was hoping to find more than 4 prawns in the dish. It was tasty but way too much pasta in proportion to the fish. Over priced sadly. Also if you sit anywhere close to the window or door in these, it's freezing. Recommend sitting well into the restaurant. Service was good and friendly,
Each time I have been recently I have been less impressed sadly...The service was very poor, our courses came out at different times and the waiter seemed very disorganised. Not sure if they need a kick in training or if it's just poor management, I continue to love this place, please be good the next time we come....
It was under expectation. We are dissatisfied. We ordered lobster pasta and we couldnt find any lobster in the plate.
The staff were clearly in the weeds on the night we went, service while courteous was slow. Food was good, had been better.
Just love Piccolino. Non-fuss classic italian dishes with great wine and Italian staff. Simple.
Very Good food but the service was bad, took too long
We have been here a few times and enjoyed it, however this visit was very disappointing.
Nice enough atmosphere but had to send 2 out of the 3 main courses back as they were cold. They were still cold when returned to us and had to be sent back again!
The table beside us had a similar problem. We were expecting some form of apology or discount on the bill but never received anything.
