The restaurant has qood quality though the serving size of the entrees is very small. I ordered tortellinis and there were only eight tortellinis (!!) included. I left the place hungry and pretty annoyed. The wifi was not working either.

We visited Il Piccolo because it had favourable reviews, and was an easy walk from our accommodation. But we really wish we hadn’t. As some other reviewers have noted, the host arrived to take our orders, and proceeded to try and ‘force’ certain dishes on...More
