Piccolo Padre, Angeles City

A family owned fine dining restaurant that started in Milano, Italy

The story of Piccolo Padre began in Milano which Chef Danilo Giampaolo's grandfather ran. Soon, he opened their second branch in Philadelphia, USA, with his mom. After working around the world, Chef Danilo finally built the third Piccolo Padre in Angeles, Pampanga with his wife Aida, and son Sandro.

The dishes come from heirloom recipes with some new ones featuring local Filipino ingredients. The concept is mainly all about traditional homemade Italian cooking, which is probably why people love it so much.

The restaurant's elegant atmosphere is inspired by three architectures of Venice: the apartments above the Venetian Canals, the famous Venetian Mask, and a replica of the famous Clock Tower in Piazza San Marco with the winged lion protector of Venice and Apostle Saint Mark. All the artwork in the restaurant is handpainted - it's really an amazing sight. It transports you to Venice the moment you step inside the restaurant.
