Our Happy Customers...

A surprise stop in for my birthday dinner
I love, love love pasta after walking along Lygon street trying to decide where to eat we stopped here. Very cute rustic old world Italian charm, warm and friendly staff the food was amazing, beautiful pillows of potato gnocchi tasty and filling just what i was looking for, a plate of lightly crumbed scallops and calamari was also devoured in no time at all. Great food, excellent friendly service

Great meal and service. We were a group of four and we all enjoyed dining at Piccolo Mondo. Delicious bruschetta, garlic bread, pastas and chicken parmigiana and cacciatore. Love the atmosphere, hope to return soon. Thank you to all.

I think everyone is carrying on like pork chops. Have been here several times, food has always been excellent, prices are average to lygon st prices. Food has always come out in a timely manner. Sometimes the wait staff seem like their fresh off the boat and cant speak very good english, but havent experienced that much lately. Will keep coming back
