Piccolino Italian Restaurant & Bar

Whilst Bramhall boasts a healthy number of good eating and drinking establishments, for me and my family, Piccolino Bramhall represents the best blend of food and drink quality, service, atmosphere and décor the village has to offer. It’s one of our favourite restaurants in Bramhall.

The Service

We all like a little attention. I know that as a long-standing customer, you’re bound to get a little more attention from a service team but I can genuinely say that for us, spending time in this venue is like visiting friends and the newbies we introduce to Piccolino Bramhall don’t feel much less. Led by ever-personable general manager Giovanni, the Italian ethos means service is a career and not just a job. The result is a low staff turnover and a higher standard of customer care all contribute to making your time here feel special. Children are equally as welcome as their parents too.

The Bar

Open 7 days a week, from late morning to just before the stroke of midnight (admittedly a late licence would be even better), the bar has a quality stock of beers, wines and spirits, coupled with experienced and attentive bar staff. The quality of Illy coffee in the morning is matched by the Mesina beer to wind down. Standout cocktails would be an Ultimate Mojito (one of the best this side of Cuba) or Espresso Martini, a fantastic Bramble or signature Campari Sour (I know, Campari from the 80’s right? Trust me, give it a try).

The Restaurant

Our take on this is simple; we’ve never experienced a bad meal there. Quite the opposite.  From lite bites and sublime garlic bread to an extensive a la Carte Menu and fabulous Italian-style Sunday roasts, it doesn’t disappoint.

The Venue

Owners The Individual Restaurant Company have invested heavily in maintaining and improving Piccolino Bramhall over the years and considering it’s popularity and weekly traffic, it’s wearing well. Lots of light wood and polished metal is balanced by leather seating and ambient lighting and a very comfortable all-weather eating area outside. For those of you who are looking for a more vibrant atmosphere, especially at the weekend, a good time awaits you.  They also have a loyalty card system which gives you money off your food and drink in all their restaurants.
