(((() Italian
Main course: £11
Food spend: £30
Opening hours
Open from 11:00 to 23:00 Monday to Saturday, and 11:00 to 22:30 on Sunday.

Staff were friendly and helpful and it was the best pasta Ive ever had!. Only issue was on paying the bill where I asked for a receipt to be told that as it was a contactless payment I didn't get a receipt - you usually do!

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.

    Food was lovely, staff very good but the music being played in the restaurant was so loud that it ruined the whole experience ... it was like having dinner in a nightclub!

    As always a joy to visit, with a real'buzz'!
    The key this visit was our hostess Beatriz who has a lovely welcoming approach and a discreet but efficient working method. She persuaded us to sign up for the loyalty card...we'll be back!

    10/10! Location, atmosphere, food and staff was perfect. Very attentive waiter and waitress who were very knowledgable of the food and drinks on offer. Thought it was going to be a bit pricy but it was very reasonable (£65 for two mains, two drinks, 1 side and two desserts). Will definitely be booking a table here again....also I would recommend the King Peawn risotto!

    As always - great, friendly service and a wide choice. Noisy guys at the bar somewhat disruptive but they disappeared eventually!

    Arrived and seated, then told by other diners that the pizza oven wasn't working so no pizza or garlic breads available. As my partner and I liked to share a garlic bread as a starter this left us without much choice. The starters and pasts mains we had were disappointing. Worse of all was the state of the toilets... flooded, dirty and waste paper strewn across the floor.
    We'd waited for some time to try piccolino, so as a birthday treat we were very disappointed with our experience.

    Beautiful bustling restaurant. Sadly no pizza oven that night so they were off the menu. The food we had was delicious but we felt very rushed my plate was taken away as soon as I put my last mouthful in!! So when asked if I enjoyed it I couldn't even reply.

    Great ambience, first time visiting since space has been extended but still works well.
    Food was divine, service great and all round thoroughly enjoyable evening
