Our family of 14 dined at Cafe Piccolo on Saturday evening. I called days prior to secure a reservation. The staff greeted our group with friendly smiles. A few of our family shared the burrata special which was very good (as usual). Many ordered from the specials, but I had the chicken marsala. It was delish! The service was excellent... More

Not the standard Italian food, what I would call more provincial, what real Italians love to eat. Have gone many times and each time it is excellent in all phases, service, quality, and satisfaction.

Tucked away in a small center you will find the best food on Pawley's. Our excellent server told us the pasta is homemade and every dish is cooked to order - and you can tell after the first bite this is true. Our party of six, each had different dishes and we all loved them. I have a gluten allergy... More

Were in Litchfield Beach on a Monday night when very few restaurants were open. Caffe Piccolo was - and how lucky for us! Will echo other reviewers in saying the atmosphere is wonderful - cozy, intimate, just slightly quirky. The wine list is fairly extensive with specials on the board; our waiter provided helpful recommendations. The menu is Italian, diverse.... More

On February 10, 2017, we dined with some new friends at Caffe Piccolo. To be honest, we had never heard of this restaurant, but our friends assured us it was great. So, off we went. The four of us shared an appetizer of mozzarella balls that shared the plate with pears, arugula and I think it was a balsamic vinaigrette.... More

I loved the atmosphere. Great wine selection. Menu was diverse. I had the linguine with light basil marinara with clams. The only thing I did not care for was that they used white clams but that is a personal preference. I also thought it was a bit pricey . However it's Pawleys island . Service was a tad slow, but...

Believe everything you read, this place is great. The risotto and scallops are fantastic, they have a great wine selection, and the staff is superb. Absolutely a must go to place for dinner.

We have been here twice now and each time the food is even better. Both times the meals were outstanding. The food is always tasty and the presentation is lovely. Today we had a shrimp appetizer - I was licking my fingers. And the Pork Chop special was so delicious! The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was also outstanding.... More
