Founded in 1977, Piccolo (Italian for “small”) was only half the size it is today, when Nicola and Bruno first brought an authentic pizza oven to Southend.

The jovial, bustling atmosphere is typically Italian and ensures each visit, whether for a quickly served pre theatre meal, or more leisurely three courses, should make your visit to Piccolo’s a pleasure.

Piccolo’s offers a beautiful view of the picturesque seafront and we are just a short walk away from the Cliffs Pavilion, and can tailor your stay to accommodate for a quick pre theatre meal.

Birthdays. Anniversaries. Corporate Events. Christmas Parties. If you are looking for a place to celebrate we cater for several functions, and free hiring is also available, with room for 50+ people. Special arrangements can be made to organise live entertainment and specific menu items.
