Manchester’s stunning Piccolino Caffe Grande sits on Clarence Street, just off Albert Square and overlooking Manchester’s iconic Town Hall. It’s a fittingly-impressive location for our elegant restaurant which boasts an open kitchen, wine boutique, cocktail bar, oyster and caviar bar, Juicery, and a large alfresco terrace facing the Town Hall.

Italy’s diverse cuisine is the heart and soul of Piccolino in Manchester. We visit the regions, meet the producers and are committed to sourcing the best quality ingredients. As you’d expect from the best Italian restaurants, Piccolino in Manchester offers a menu of Italian classics with a distinctly modern twist. At Piccolino, passion for provenance is at the forefront of our menu, which incorporates the best and freshest seasonal produce, Italian cheeses, meat and seafood, all delivering pure classic Italian flavours.

    We tried 3 different pasta dishes: Lasagne, Carbonara and Casarecce Pollo (GF with penne). The Lasagne was good but the carbonara needed a lot of salt and pepper. The GF pasta dish was not good. The creamy white sauce really was bland. I ended up putting my garlic spinach into the dish and mixing it up with the sauce. It really needed the garlic. Also, the dishes were expensive for the lack of flavour. The staff were nice though.

    First time here in a long time and I left feeling very underwhelmed. Starter was gamberoni on sourdough and the butter sauce completely covered the bread which made it a soggy mess. Main course was calf’s liver which was accompanied by mash potatoes and onions in some kind of vinegar. Calf’s liver was disappointing and very stringy. I left half of it. Mash potato was ok. Sauce was supposed to be safe and butter but, again, tasted like a lot of vinegar was added which made it very sour. Desert was cheese and crackers. Crackers literally tasted of nothing and the cheese wasn’t much better. To top it off I asked for a Tia Maria coffee which came minus any Tia Maria (they later brought a shot glass of this for me to empty into my coffee). Service was friendly enough but slow at times. I wouldn’t return in a hurry as the quality of the food was well below par

    I had the salmon tagliatelle but found it over salty and not very creamy - maybe my personal taste. The waitress changed it for me and was very helpful but it was still salty and lacking moisture/cream. Feel the prices have risen a lot but a lovely popular restaurant.
