About La Piccola Italia

La Piccola Italia is one of Bournemouth’s longest established restaurants. We first opened our doors on a hot afternoon in May 1981 with the simple idea of serving authentic Italian dishes using the finest ingredients.

Over the last 33 years we’ve made a few changes, seen a few people come and go, but we still remain focused on our opening ideals. Still run by the original owner and his family, La Piccola Italia is the perfect choice for an intimate dinner, special celebration with friends and family or just a quick lunch.

The gnocchi I had was undercooked abd to be fair overpriced. I don’t think I will come again for the food. The service is nice and atmosphere is good but food isn’t the best.

We always enjoy coming to La Piccola for its friendly welcome, good food and wine. We usually come with visitors to Bournemouth who have invariably shared our enthusiasm

All great apart from when we mentioned that the cream in the profiteroles tasted cheesy, all the waiter did was go and ask the chef what was in them...no apology or replacement or refund. Also we had something we didn't even have on our bill but another waiter took it off for us.

Service poor and lacking in the usual warmth. Food nowhere near normal standard and just not good. Tablecloth was filthy and we were eating at 12 so was soiled from previous night. Not what we have come to expect. It was so bad we thought there were new owners

We really enjoyed our team Christmas meal with La Piccola thank you!! The food was outstanding, and the service was great! Best pizza and tiramisu I think I've had! The only things we would say is that the drinks were expensive, and despite submitting a pre-order the arancini was not available which was a shame.
