Pay a visit to the Piccolino Caffè Grande that is located on Clarence Street in Manchester. With an impressive open kitchen, cocktail bar, oyster and caviar bar, juicery, and a spacious alfresco terrace overlooking the Town Hall, this restaurant offers a sophisticated setting for various occasions — whether looking for a spot to dine on date night, a meal with the whole family for a special celebration, or a delicious dinner to impress some colleagues. Surround yourself with the charm of authentic Italian dining, enjoying the tastes of carefully curated menus featuring the finest Italian dishes crafted from impeccably sourced ingredients, complemented by perfectly paired wines. Create new memories filled with exquisite flavors and great service at every turn.

Start off with some nibbles for your table, including the vine ripened plum tomatoes with garlic, oregano and fresh basil on toasted ciabatta, along with crispy fried saffron and pea risotto cones with a spicy ve-duja, mozzarella and marinara sauce, and seared sliced beef fillet carpaccio with a Venetian dressing and rocket and Parmesan salad.

The pasta dishes are made with 100% Italian durum wheat from Puglia and the spring waters of Gragnano, so you can be sure of an authentic experience. Choose from the linguini with red king prawns, courgette and chilli, perhaps the mushroom and vegetable ragu with tomato, vegan mozzarella style cheese and flat leaf parsley, or the ever popular spaghetti carbonara made with free range eggs, guincale, Pecorino Romano, cream and flat leaf parsley (which even has the traditional option to enjoy without cream).

As the restaurant has been successful in building relationships with some of the finest producers from Italy, the British Isles and Argentina, you can also find a selection of delicious steaks on the menu, like the 21 day aged wagyu sirloin or the 40 day aged grain fed rib eye.
