Within a striking building in Trinity Gardens, Piccolino Newcastle offers a bright, airy dining room. In warmer weather, diners can go al fresco in this fashionable area of the city.

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.

Just 5 minutes’ drive from Newcastle Rail Station and moments from the iconic Quayside, Piccolino Newcastle boasts a picturesque setting and effortless style.

    Excellent food the scallops were Devine. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience enhanced by the friendliness of the staff. Could not fault our visit.

    very good... service was very good, restaurant atmosphere was good, menu is varied and food is nice. Italian restaurants can be much of a muchness, so food was as expected and typical, however it did get me saying "lovely..this is how spare ribs should be served" and (Seafood spaghetti) "this is very nice", so better than average!
    Not many people in the restaurant, but I'm pretty sure its due to it being that "funny week" after New Year. My 6 year old daughter was happy with the special treatment from the staff, so I'd say this is a good reflection on the service level :)

    Last minute decision to try this restaurant. Made easy by the online table booking service. Good choice menu with standard Italian dishes and more. The sharing garlic bread with rosemary and mozzarella was delicious. I opted for a 500g aged mature ribble. DI-VINE. Steak so tender hardly needed to use a knife
    Partner opted for lasagne. Very tasty. Pannacotta and tiramisu good choice for dessert. Ambiance was romantic. Staff were excellent
    Upmarket chain high quality service and food.

    We love this restaurant and have gone every New Years Eve afternoon for seven years - and many times in between. We loved the food but the first 40 minutes were very uncharacterustic - had to ask for men's after waiting 20 minutes, had to ask for our drinks order to be taken and had to ask for someone to take our food order after waiting forty minutes. They appeared to be short staffed with two huge tables in and once some extra staff arrived it settled down. We enjoyed it and would return but it was disappointing to begin with!

    5 of us had a lovely meal and great evening until we came to pay the bill and found that we were being overcharged by £35 for drinks that we didn't have....we pointed it out to management who were extremely rude and made no apology saying only "mistakes happen" ......we WONT be back

    Lovely restaurant second time I've visited and the service and food have been excellent. A bit disappointed they ran out of my favourite dish lasagna but the chef made me an alternative dish which was very tasty. Cheesecake and wine is fabulous.

    Very disappointing and embarrassing as we dined here on my recommendation based on an experience earlier this year. Service was atrocious .....we waited an age to be seated even though we were early and there were several empty tables, then I actually had to walk to the front desk from our table to get attention as all the waiting staff ignored us....two men in jackets were just that.... men in jackets!!...useless.....snapped at us when we asked if our drinks were ever going to arrive!!!..... food was distinctly average and overpriced....waste of money the whole experience!! What has happened to this restaurant??.....
