Piccolino reviews

By Martin S.

The crispy duck with apples is literally the best dish in the universe, anyone who questions me will be challenged to a duel at noon.

Horrible. Having visited several times over the past 3-4 years it has gotten more expensive and cares less and less. It used to be OK, reliable. The food is over-priced and the quality poor. Almost everything - without exception that we ordered (4 adults)was over-salted. From the asparagus starter to pasta dishes to my chicken dish. My partner's veal was dry and that was the only dish on the table that was bland - had no seasoning. The atmosphere is corporate. Its such a shame that this is seen as a high end restaurant in Sheffield. Do yourselves a favour and support independent businesses in the city, don't give your money to these chain places, especially when the attitude and quality is so poor.

Have eaten here several times and we decided to go for a meal on Christmas Eve, It was absoulutly fantastic, superb service and the food was excellent, I have never had a bad meal here but this was very good indeed. We started with Bruchetta with King Prawns and Calamari, King Prawns and Asparagus in a tempura batter. For main Whole lemon sole (special of the day) perfect in every way, and rare Fillet of beef in pepper sauce, topped of with a superb bottle of South African Shiraz from Somerset West. For dessert a caramel and praline parfait, which was gorgeous, perfect texture and not to sweet. We cant recommend Picalinos enough

Myself a few girlfriends went to Picocolinos last weekend and had a lovely time! Have been there a few times before and have always enjoyed it. It has a fantastic location over looking the winter gardens and the town hall and always has a great atmosphere. The menu is much more varied than your average Italian and there are usually quite interesting specials on to so would definitely recommend!

Had lunch at Piccolino today with clients.Firstly, its in an excellent location - the convenience of the city centre, with a lovely view of the Peace Gardens.The food was excellent, I really can’t fault it.

I had the Bruschetta to start, which was piled high with jucy fresh tomatoes. For main I had the Anatra Arrosto with a side of Rosemary and Garlic Potatoes. The duck melted in the mouth, and there was plenty of it too (2 legs!), the apples complemented the meat perfectly, as did the red wine sauce.

The potatoes weren’t over seasoned, but the flavour of the rosemary and garlic really came through.Service was faultless, especially the guy serving us (tall bloke with a local accent).

He was friendly and attentive (but not overly), very knowledgable when it came to the menu and was happy to provide reccomendations.I’d love to go back in the evening sometime, as I’m sure it wold have an equally pleasant atmosphere.

Contemporary Italian restaurant situated in the impressive ‘Heart of the City’ area.

The Venue
Millennium Square won’t be a name familiar to many Sheffielders – it’s actually the rear portion of the area better known as the Peace Gardens, opposite the impressive Winter Gardens and St Paul’s Mercure Hotel. Piccolino occupies the ground floor of the slightly less impressive office building opposite, though the restaurant itself is a pleasant, bright and airy space surrounded by glass, with ample seating for parties of all sizes. In the summer, tables outside offer an impressive view of the Peace Gardens, Winter Gardens and Town Hall (and numerous building sites, it must be said).

The People
Being located so centrally, Piccolino is the venue for a great many business meetings during the daytime, and in the evening caters to many couples and parties on their way to the cinema, the theatre or the city’s pubs and bars, as well as those simply out for an enjoyable meal. Piccolini is a good size and has an open plan design, and even when it's busy it never feels particularly crowded or noisy. Its position overlooking the Peace Gardens means Piccolino sits in peaceful surroundings even on busy Friday and Saturday nights and it's well away from the city centre’s livelier thoroughfares.

The Food
Piccolino is part of one of the ever increasing number of Italian chain restaurants, and as such its menu (or something very much like it) will be familiar to most. It’s traditional Italian, prepared to a high standard, offering plenty of choice without being the most original menu you’ll ever see. Pasta, pizzas, salad and risottos comprise the bulk of the menu, though as with all Italian restaurants the apparent simplicity is deceptive and there's enough here to suit all tastes. Vegetarian dishes are numerous and varied.

Pasta dishes include everything from spaghetti alla bolognese to lasagne el forno, linguini with king prawns and a dozen or so other choices, all priced around £10. Salad, pizza and risotto menus offer similar variety at very reasonable prices (£6 to £10) and are supplemented by fish and carne sections including such offerings as baked sea bass, crispy duck with honey roasted apples, and lightly fried veal escalope with spaghetti. Prices for these larger ‘secondi’ dishes vary from around £15 to £20.00.

Before 6pm, a ‘menu rapido’ operates offering any ‘grande’ pizza, pasta, risotto or salad, along with a glass of wine, bottle of beer or mineral water for £10 – an excellent value for money deal for those looking for a better quality of quick, daytime bite.

The Drink
Needless to say, the drinks menu is centred around the wine, and a good dozen reds and whites are offered, as well as roses, Champagnes and proseccos, starting at £14.25 going up to £95. Bottled beers – the traditional Peroni among them – spirits, soft drinks and hot drinks are also available, including the full range of Italian coffees.

The Last Word
Piccolino is a chain restaurant and it won't be the most distinctive or extravagant Italian you’ll ever visit, but it’s high quality and good value for money (particularly during the daytime) make it well worth a look.
