Il Piccolinos Pizzeria and restaurant was established in 1979 and is family run business that has spanned two generations. It was created by the current owner who was born in a rural village, Ciminna set deep in the Sicilian countryside where fresh produce was cultivated and traditional cooking was a family affair, it is this home cooking that inspired the owner to share his knowledge and love for the Sicilian cuisine with the creation of Piccolinos. The result has been three decades of dedication, producing delicious, freshly cooked foods from only the best ingredients.
Piccolinos has been described by many locals over the years as "their hidden gem", which transports them into Italy when they walk through the doors. The atmosphere is always inviting, lively yet romantic whilst always embracing families, generation after generation.
