Piccolino completes £1.5m Heddon Street refurbishment

Piccolino, the Italian dining concept from Individual Restaurants, has reopened the doors to its Heddon Street venue following the completion of a £1.5m refurbishment project. 

The two-storey restaurant has undergone an extensive internal and external revamp after closing back in April. In that time, a large lower ground private dining and events space has been created, alongside an extensive 82sq metre al fresco garden lounge in front of the site. 

Updated interiors combine marble flooring and oak furniture with bespoke wallpapers and light turquoise fabrics, establishing a lighter dining atmosphere. 

The new summer menu is inspired by the different regions of Italy. Highlights include the arancini tartufo as an antipasti, Caprese burrata salad, linguine all ‘arragosta and an extensive selection of steaks. The menu also features a selection of pizzas made inside the wood fired oven imported from Italy. The drinks menu will see over 50 Italian wines alongside classic Italian cocktails and soft drinks.

Heading up the kitchen team will be Sicilian head chef Natale Falcone, who has been with Individual Restaurants for 10 years, having started as chef de partie back in 2011. Also on the team is master baker Davide Argentino, worldwide master consultant and World Champion 2018 of Best Pizza Dough at the World Exhibition in Shanghai.

On the venue relaunch, Argentino comments: "We have put a lot of work into our new home on Heddon Street and are incredibly excited to welcome guests back to this prestigious part of London to experience Piccolino’s next level thriving dining destination."
