WEB Piccolino’s Italian Restaurant York
Usually on or day off we like to try sample local attractions, restaurants bars and venues so that we can give our customers ideas before they arrive.
Last night Russ and i visited Piccolinos in York. What a lovely restaurant with an upmarket continental feel. It is an ideal restaurant to visit for that “special meal”. It is a little pricey but the fact that everything is freshly made including the pasta and desserts one would expect to pay the price for high quality cuisine.
We shared a a Garlic bread with Tomato £4.50. This was very thin and crispy but packed with flavour
Russ had Veal Escalope with chestnut mushrooms and a Marsala sauce £17.50. it looked delicious and certainly Russ approved
I had Crispy roast duck with honey roasted apples and and a Valpolicella red wine sauce. £14.95. I cannot decribe how tasty it was. 2 large confit of duck sat on 4 delicately honey flavoured apple quarters, the sauce was sticky sweet with a hint of a liquorice flavour. The confit was well cooked, tender and crispy.
Unfortunately the main courses are not served with any side dishes at all. These are extra at £3.75 per portion i would highly recommend the creamy mash.
To round the meal off I enjoyed a delicious desert of Roasted fruits and marscapone cheese crostini
Russ had an extremely rich drippy chocolate fudge sponge with vanilla ice cream
finished with a frothy cappuccino.
I would definitely suggest an advance reservation if you wish to visit the restaurant whilst in York
