Reviews for Piccoli Piatti

Was very impressed by my quick visit so will definitely come back and try out their other dishes! Service and food both looked to be of very high standard, and the restaurant feels like it has plenty of character. There is much to live up to since this place used to be the Herne Bay Local, one of my favourites! I saw the panna cotta going past, and not being one who normally orders a PC (more of a brulee type of guy) I had to get it and was seriously impressed by how silky smooth it was, definitely a convert :-) possibly the best one I have ever tried....
UPDATE: Oct-2015 Had dinner here, was superb of course. My dining companion said it was the best lamb shoulder ever, and considering that is her favourite dish, this is a great compliment. Tender and tasty. Had the panna cotta again myself obviously.

Absolutely love it here. My favourite Italian in Auckland! The starter of scallops that we shared were amazing and all the pasta mains I've had there were delicious. Highly recommend!

I really liked this place. We went as a group of six on a Saturday nite and found the place strangely empty. But the place will pick up as soon as locals realise the food is very good. It's the now mandatory sharing plates and we slowly worked our way through most of the menu over a few hours. But the dishes were fresh and interesting. We called for a second helping of deep friend anchovies. And - I really credit them for this - they didn't have to be asked but they made sure that every dish had sufficient pieces for six. The staff seemed happy and certainly they were able to explain each dish.

Fabulous group dinner at this cute restaurant, the staff were attentive, Italian cuisine outstanding and there was plenty for our group - I added a few extra dishes but I didn't need to. Would also be a great venue for a quaint dinner for two. Highly recommend.

I went to try Piccoli Piatti with 3 girlfriends and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We all enjoyed the food and sharing the small (and big) plates. The atmosphere was lovely and we had a great table outside and service was very good.
We were very surprised by the lovely mor products in the bathroom.. A lovely touch.
Will be back, and not just for the hand cream!

Starting with the Anchovis and ending with the Osso Bucco over a few bottles of wine, it made for a great night.
Service was good on what was a very quite Saturday night and while little has changed since it was the HBL. It has been freshen-up.
Would be a great place for a beer and small plate on a Sunday afternoon.
Well worth a visit.

Wonderful newly renovated space with very friendly, knowledgeable staff. We have been twice and will definitely be going again. The food is fresh and really tasty. It was a great new dining experience at Piccoli Piatti.

We have been twice now and love this restaurant. It has been very stylishly renovated, the food is great and the staff are friendly and attentive. I love the small plates concept - there is something to suit everyone. We will definitely be back. It is a great addition to this strip of Jervois Rd.

We are locals and went down on opening night for a few tasting plates and drinks.
We've been back three nights since. The food is excellent, tasty fresh and reasonably priced.
The space has been beautifully renovated and opened up from the last bar on that site.
We'll definitely be back for more

Me my partner went for dinner the day after the opening, we both italian and work in the hospitality. We where expecting bit better at the average. Well that's not what i call modern italian cuisine, for me is a european cafe style food. Many people don't understand what modern italian cuisine mean (a fusion of italian regional dish with a modern view of presentation), not a fusion confusion! Surely the chef its not italian or if is he must be trained outside Italy. Also the tortellini pasta looked more like a wonton shape, the ossobuco where too watery and the gremolada wasn't as such.
