Usually eat here when I travel to Bristol on business. Whether you sit inside or outside under the heaters, the place has a nice atmosphere. Staff are attentive, sometimes harder to order if the English isn't good but always get there in the end. Lots of choice on the menu and of course the Prosecco is nothing to complain about... More

A very enjoyable birthday lunch beginning of December with my 30 year old daughter and family. Luckily we booked for 1400h so missed the very busy lunchtime session and it had quietened down considerably. Good menu choices and great atmosphere. Service was attentive and we weren't rushed. Food good. We shared starters - calamari, bruschetta etc. then went for a... More

I visited a couple of times with clients on the build up to Christmas and food never disappointed. On one occasion client had lobster which was good and the oysters were very fresh along with mussels on other the occasion. The staff however needed to be sharper in their process. Serving food before the table was cleared of previous courses... More

First time visit. I went with family for a quick dinner. Atmosphere nice and Italian staff very friendly and efficient. We had pizzas. The topping was definitely of very good quality (buffalo mozzarella, italian sausage, fresh broccoli) but unfortunately the dough had nothing to do with the Italian pizza. It was not rised, it was dry and basically not good.... More

We checked into premier suites Cabot circus, from our balcony we saw piccolino. Went with friends who live in Bristol. The staff were attentive. We ordered the cod with spicy sausages, crab ravioli, risotto and pasta. The food went well with Italian gwremtiser and prosecco. The fish was first class so was every other dish. Slightly pricy but worth every... More

My lunch here was typical of an average Italian restaurant, apart from the price, which was well above what I'd expect. Though the lunch menu offered a good selection, many items were not available and those that we chose were nothing special.

Piccolino in Bristol captures the spirit of Italy with its great food, unrivalled style and vibrant, charming character. Located in the striking new development of Cabot Circus, Piccolino is enhanced by its own equally eye-catching exterior, together with a delightful al fresco terrace that is the perfect place to take a break from shopping and enjoy a relaxing drink or bite to eat with friends. Once inside, the vibrant green leather upholstery, striking black marble table tops and sleek wooden finishes ensure a contemporary style and bold design with a smart yet informal atmosphere. Meanwhile, the chefs work passionately in the open kitchen, creating every dish with care and precision, whilst the sight of fresh pasta being made from scratch is a delightful spectacle for you to watch whilst enjoying modern and classic Italian cuisine.
