The service and meals are outstanding. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly, nothings a problem when requiring advice on food and a good wine. The interior of the restaurant is welcoming and the layout of each area within the restaurant caters for all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Picolino's to anyone, and believe this to be one of the best Italian Restaurants in Manchester City Centre I have been to, in a long time.

The food was divine and the customer service was top class. Whilst the restaurant was bustling with customer, which Is understandable with the quality of food served. Despite this our food didn't take long to arrive and was delicious, will definitely be returning.

The restaurant did not have a record of our reservation when we arrived. We were seated quickly after I had managed to retrieve my confirmation email, but it was an unfortunate start given one of the party had to catch a train at a specific time - hence the reason for booking. However, in the end it didn't cloud our overall experience.

Really good experience of excellent cuisine, chic yet informal atmosphere, and truly helpful and friendly staff. Excellent reception staff who kindly, efficiently and without fuss changed my booking time following anticipated lateness of my friend and fellow diner. I would have no hesitation in recommending both the Open Table booking procedure and this particular restaurant (Piccolino's Manchester).

We have used this Italian Restaurant many times and it is always outstanding. The décor is divine and their food displays equally so - especially the deserts and cakes! The food is to die for! The service is also outstanding - from the moment you walk into the restaurant. Many of the waiters are Italian which adds to the atmosphere. We will be back!

Complimentary glass off prossecco when dining time was changed by restaurant which was appreciated. Service very good and food delicious. What finished the evening off was whoever found my daughters handbag in the waiting area handed it in behind the bar. So A a big big thankyou .

This was our first visit to Piccolino in Manchester and was recommended to us by friends. We were celebrating a 'big birthday' for my husband and wanted somewhere a little bit special. We were not disappointed. When booking I requested two glasses of Champagne to be served on our arrival. This was done with such finesse at the bar the waiter gave my husband his glass and said "Happy Birthday" The decor is just beautiful and classic. We were seated in a booth which was private but great views over the restaurant. We couldn't fault the food, it was exquisite. Beautifully served, the waiting on staff were wonderfully professional. The surprise cheesecake with candle and the waiters singing "Happy Birthday" made it a very memorable occasion. I'd say if you are reading this and you haven't been, then you must! Thank you to all at Piccolino's for making our day.
