So, a nice man at Blakes, told us to go around the corner and there it was" PICCOLINOS.".and they allowed children ...

    The next day, I went for a classic italian..pasta and salad and vino... I had just come back from Sicily.. and felt right back at home..

    Prego for the advice on going there... One thing missing......Cannoli's. great food, atmosphere, and priced quite respectfully... ciao naked lilac.. ps.. went about 3 times after that...
    your very welcome glad you enjoyed, i agree cannoli rounds things off nicely.

    Gerry those lovely ice cream parlours are few and far between in Liverpool, but there is a nice cafe in Bold Street next door to The Italian club that sells Cheshire ices and they are to die for, buon appetito
    ciao Debz x

    Hi tracing your family is never an easy experience; firstly the census collators often misspelled the names largely due to the language barrier. Secondly another misconception is the birthplace back in Italy again people often think their ancestors were born in Naples if from the south and Genoa if from the north.
    Your family were southerners and they were more likely to have come from one of two villages in the Lazio region, which are Atina and Picinisco. A quick search discovers your family were living in Vauxhall ward and not Little Italy?s St Ann?s ward this could have been due to the work your gggrandfather undertook such as working on the docks etc.
    In order to find the correct spelling of the name and birthplace requires applications via Italy and unfortunately this can take a long time. Try this site, which is always a good place to start? forum.picinisco.net
    I was talking with a relative of yours today called Angela who works for the Culture Company, she was at the James William Carling street pavement art competition in Bold Street, maybe you know her.
    I have yet to come across your name even when I was researching my Liverpool?s Italian families book, another place to try is Scottie Press online forum.
    Hope this helps
