Piccolo by Piccolino
A stone’s throw from Selfridges and the designer stores around Exchange Square, Piccolo by Piccolino is a Southern Italian restaurant serving Neapolitan pizza, pasta and salads.
Located on a second floor mezzanine with an impressive island bar, panoramic windows and comfortable booths, it’s sleek and sophisticated whilst remaining affordable, with most mains around the £13 mark.
It’s a top spot for pizza and prosecco mid-shopping trip. Or visit at dusk and watch the Manchester streetlights twinkle around you for the ultimate date night.
Though the name translates to ‘small’, it feels bright and airy inside. The restaurant is accessible by escalator or lift, making a comfortable arrival for those with limited mobility (or just tired feet from a day of exploring the city).
Each dish pays homage to traditional regional Italian specialities. From pizzas and pastas to classics such as meatballs with tomato, chilli and basil, you’ll certainly leave satisfied. Go for the king prawn bruschetta, or the capricciosa pizza with its mix of Italian ham, mushrooms and olives. Homemade desserts include delizia al limone and tiramisu.
