Piccolino reviews

By Joanne E.

My husband and I decided to take some friends to Piccolino for their first Piccolino's "experience" and what a disappointment. We booked a table for 5pm on a Saturday evening (not a particularly busy time) and the service we received was atrocious. Our waiter swanned up to our table with a "couldn't care less" attitude which became more and more evident as the evening wore on. Our main meals arrived, but my side order of vegetables was missing. We asked the waiter for the dish a further three times and after waiting for twenty minutes (at which time my meal was half eaten and luke warm) we gave up and dragged the Manager over to try and get some results. Eventually the side dish arrived at which point we seized the opportunity to order more drinks. Two of the three drinks arrived after another twenty minute wait and we chased the other drink with the waiter who proceeded to walk off and start serving other tables not caring that one member of our party was starting to wither away due to dehydration! We summoned the Manager (again) to complain about the level of service we had received and he just shrugged and made a half hearted attempted at apologising before slinking off and presenting us with a bill for £120! No effort was made at all during the meal to try and recover the poor standard of service, it was a case of "this is how it is, like it or lump it". Take a hint Piccolino's. The restaurant business is a service industry. I suggest you try to improve yours.

Piccolino is a bit of a cut above your usual italian chain resturaunt,The food is good , pizzas great value , mains are expensive as you genrally have to order sides of veg etc.

Also can be v noisy depending on day of week ive been fri sat night where large sections of the resturant have been for large groups,and struggled to hear my partner.

all in all a great choice for family & friend get togethers, prob not the best place for a romantic meal!!

Took the Missus here for her birthday, she really liked it although I wasn't so keen, I prefer our local trattoria. Overall not bad though.

If you want a posh pizza or fancy splashing out on some handmade pasta then look no further than this swish restaurant.

Piccolino's offers Nottingham some Italian style but it comes at a price.

The Venue
Amid the hustle and bustle of the trendy Lace Market area is Piccolino’s restaurant and bar. It's part of a chain, but don't let that put you off as the food, service and atmosphere is excellent.

It's a far cry from traditional Italian restaurants, with a large bar area, wooden floors and swish decor. If you’re looking for a cosy meal for two or an alfresco snack, Piccolino's has it all. The quality is good, but the prices can be steep.

The People
Piccolino’s attracts a wide variety of diners from young groups to anniversary couples. Everyone is made welcome by the pleasant and helpful staff who gladly offer recommendations.

The kitchen is open so you can view your food being cooked, which is always comforting. Seating is a little too close together, which is okay until your bored neighbours start listening in on your conversation.

The Food
The variety of food served is amazing, from traditional pizzas and pasta dishes, to mouthwatering seafood skewers served on saffron rice (£18.95). Vegetarians get an unusually large choice, which is always welcome but not always seen.

A good selection of bread is served from their own wood stone oven in the kitchen and is still warm when you dip it into a mix of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Pasta dishes such as the carbonara cost £9.25, while a spicy sausage pizza with roasted red pepper, tomato, mozzarella and chilli costs £8.15, and salads are around the £9 mark.

The Drink
The wine list is substantial enough to please the pickiest drinker, with the majority of the bottles priced between £17 and £27. If you’re familiar with Italian wine, you’ll absolutely love the options here. A small recommended list is also available, as are monthly specials, and there's a good assortment of soft drinks.

The Last Word
This isn’t the place for the cheapest Italian meal in Nottingham, but it is probably the tastiest. Take advantage of the summer months at Piccolino’s and dine outside, hopefully in the sunshine, while absorbing the Lace Market buzz.
