The playful approach is extended from the interior to the food. Chef Andrea Fioriti introduced something that could be described as an Italian version of a toastie using Umbrian bread, salumi, veggies and cheese (torta al testo).
Meanwhile, the pizzas showcase classic flavours and you can see them being 'made with love' as the kitchen and woodfire oven are in full view. See the full menu here to check out what favourites are on offer along with more uncommon, smaller Italian bites.
If your friend feels like pasta and you feel like pizza, then luckily Piccolino does both. Pasta is made on site but the flavours depend on what local produce the team gets in that week due to their focus on a 'what's fresh' philosophy.
If you get cravings for Italian food and you're looking for something fun and casual, this is the place for something a little different. Sample a taste of Perugia, Umbria in a Melbourne setting next time you're in the inner north.
