In a bright, sleek setting, Piccolino Didsbury boasts an open kitchen, giving diners full view of the chefs at work. For warmer climes, the pretty terrace offers a relaxing outdoor seating area.

With a vibrant and contemporary atmosphere, Piccolino restaurant evokes the charm of traditional Italian dining. Bringing the finest quality seasonal ingredients to the high street, Piccolino offers tasty, hand-prepared dishes. The varied Piccolino menu offers Italian favourites as well as new, ambitious combinations, like roast pumpkin, pancetta and gorgonzola risotto, or a platter loaded with fresh, tasty antipasti.

An exciting canapés menu offers intense tasting flavours, ideal for sampling with a glass from the extensive, well-selected wine list at Piccolino, or an option from the international beer selection. Piccolino takes pride in its range of classically decadent desserts, like dark chocolate and amaretto mousse, or creamy pannacotta with mulled plums and orange.

Just 8 minutes’ drive from the popular Chorlton Water Park, Piccolino Didsbury is nestled in a picturesque, leafy suburb of Manchester.

    Great service as usual. Kids love the pizza. I had roast cod with spicy sausage. The fish was nicely cooked but the sausage was unpleasant, to my taste, and the meal was cold. My wife had chicken and pasta and loved it. Overall not bad. My advice would be fewer covers and better quality.

    Food was great, service was very slow at times, and very rushed at times, the waitress attempted clearing a plate as my friend was still eating, the manager did grant us a free drink however his attitude was very unprofessional.

    Me and my partner went here as a one year anniversary meal. We both had fish dishes as our mains and it was some of the best fish I have ever eaten; really fresh and perfectly cooked. I would highly recommend Piccolino's to anyone!

    My husband and I dined here last night whilst we were cat sitting for our daughter in Didsbury. She recommended it and we were very impressed with everything. The restaurant is bright, comfortable, busy and well run. The staff were welcoming, efficient and attentive. The food arrived quickly and we had a beautiful meal. It was well cooked, well presented and tasted amazing. Another visit is definitely on the cards the next time we visit Didsbury.

    Generally good, but staff took payment away and never returned change even though I was leaving it as a tip it would have been nice to be asked.

    very fatty first course
    very salty duck

    I would rate the food as 7/10 but the 'dining experience' was much poorer. The lights were dimmed soon after our arrival which made for difficulty in reading the menu. I queried this only to be told that it was a "management decision". We were given a table below the AC unit and ever so often received a blast of cold air resulting in my wife having to put on her jacket. I was too fed-up by this time to even ask for a different table and just wanted to complete my meal which we limited to two courses. Not good value at all for a mid-week treat.
