10 reviews of Piccolino Heddon Street in English
Only slight gripe was that the place was completely empty other than us, but it took quite a while for the food to come out. Would definitely recommend though, worth the wait for the great quality.
Went to this place after seeing a show at Oxford Circus and wanted to finish the weekend with a nice dinner. However we have been to lots of restaurant chains like pizza express, Strada, Jamies etc. and to be honest this place is not much different to these ones. The service was average, our waitress was kind of bored but a bit arrogant looking and the food was very average. We had a steak to be recooked as the first one was not done to our liking. The second one was not better but we did not want to give it back another time. The other meal was ok - very much seasoned and to salty and oily in my opinion. In the end we were much disappointed as the money we paid for the two courses was not worth it regarding the quality we got. We would have done cheaper and better in a Strada or similar.
I am not sure why Piccolino has such mixed reviews. I've been here a few times and it's been great every time. It's not getting 5 stars purely because that's reserved for a select few including Da Mario on Gloucester Road and Pizzeria on the Green in Clapham, but it's still a great place, centrally located with good food and a good atmosphere.
Best enjoyed on a warm summer evening in the outside seated area, before all the hen parties arrive at Strawberry Moons next door.
I could do this review in two words: it's fine.
It's basically a Pizza Express style place, with a slightly nicer menu but about the same level of service. That said, one of our group sent his steak back because it was too well done and they didn't make a fuss about it and brought a fresh one. The tap water request, however, was greeted with a huff.
My prawn linguine thing was quite nice and the wine was good enough, but it's the kind of place I'd go if I was in the area and needed refuelling rather than making a beeline for it.
In my opinion, this makes the best pizzas in the UK. I have tried for years to find pizza that is as good as it is in Italy, and this is the only place that even comes close. Seriously, it's that good.
It's in a lovely little side street off Regent Street, and in nice weather it's great to sit outside.
I go here for the amazing pizzas, and the beautiful home-made ice-cream and sorbets, which are to die for. I've not tried anything else from the menu but my friends assure me they enjoyed their food too.
This place is very authentically Italian, even down to the service, so it's not perfect, and that's why I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
Saturday night, central London, sensible budget, left it too late to book the recommended Clos Maggiore. We ended up at Piccolino, on Heddon Street, but I wasn’t too worried as had spotted some nice sounding dishes on the menu and I was dining with some of my favourite people. What happened next?
We arrived for an early dinner (6pm) to a pretty empty restaurant. Maybe the fact that we asked to be moved away from the rain soaked / wind tunnel double doors to one of the myriad other tables gave us a black mark from the start, because from that moment on the waiting staff practiced the fine art of eye avoidance.
Those who know me well would not say I’m known for my patience, and I have to admit I am a stickler for good service, but on this occasion I feel I hardly need to say a word about the badly seasoned, over-facingly large sausage & fennel risotto, or the strange bread holding racks which blocked cross table conversation, because the terrible service defined the restaurant in my mind.
I’m being harsh, my friend loved her Spaghetti alla Vongole and the wine was nice. But the fact that it took us three hours to have bread, one course and a coffee, is pretty mystifying, no?
Not much more to say, I loved the company, but wished we’d been able to try the Clos Maggiore!
Value for Money: 6/10
Would I go again? Not on your nelly!
Piccolino’s is a restaurant tucked away in a side street (pedestrianised) off Regent Street. It has an outdoor seating area and a spacious inside.
Wonderful and friendly staff (they loved my two children - so much so they kept on bringing them those italian almond biscuits).
The menu is good with some pizza and pasta dishes, salads and meaty stuff.
All in all very pleasant.
