not just your LOCAL for great ITALIAN, come sit at the BAR and indulge in our COCKTAIL menu..

a love affair

Mr Piccolo is an Italian love affair in the heart of Kensington Village… a warm and approachable dining space that houses a modern setting, whilst paying tribute to Melbourne’s heritage, with the use of rustic materials with which Kensington is renowned.

Our kitchen philosophy is based on centuries of traditional Italian cooking where fresh ingredients are not negotiable. We take every opportunity to source local produce with an emphasis on seasonality, and only use premium imported ingredients.

The bar ambience is that of a typical Italian bar where anything goes – coffee, antipasti, a plate of pasta or a glass of wine (at any time of day, we don’t judge).

Our beverage offering whilst humble, covers local and international heroes so not to disappoint –  our liquor cabinet extensive.

We love nothing more than to sit around the table with family and friends and enjoy the simple things in life… food, drink & song.

“a food and cultural experience to be enjoyed.”
