With a menu of both classic and contemporary Italian dishes, Piccolino offers a chic Mediterranean dining experience in the heart of Manchester city centre.

With a vibrant and contemporary atmosphere, Piccolino restaurant evokes the charm of traditional Italian dining. Bringing the finest 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 canapé menu offers intense flavours, ideal for sampling with a glass from the extensive, well selected wine list at Piccolino restaurant and bar, 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 panna cotta with mulled plums and orange.

The open-style kitchen at Piccolino – Manchester lets diners witness the passionate chefs at work. Manchester Opera House and the Arndale Centre are less than 10 minutes’ walk away.

    We love yr restaurant but unfortunately today I have suffered gastro-wise. I had the crab ravioli but I think the crab meat wasn't as fresh as it should have been and today I have suffered. I ate no other dead food yesterday as I mostly eat vegetarian and I think that eating crab on a Monday is not a good idea cos it won't be fresh, and it wasn't.

    Very efficient and welcoming.
    We had a drink at the lovely bar before lunch .
    You are given your own personal waiter and they are very attentive. The set lunch menu has a good variation.
    My husband loved his meal .
    I would advise to book as it was extremely busy at lunchtime.
    We are returning on Christmas Eve..
