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.

Great food in a restaurant that benefits from being family run - cosy and personal.

We went for lunch after my graduation on a Wednesday. Our waiter was very kind as we moved the time of our booking an hour later. He was very fun, joked lots with us which my nan particularly enjoyed. We had the special lunch deal which is really good value. My main meal was nice but a bit basic, a creamy mushroom pasta, which I think could have had more vegetables in. But overall it was really good service which made the dinner as lovely as it was!

We had a wonderful evening at La Piccola Italia. The food was very good and the staff were very welcoming. We'd definitely go back again.

A special occasion ruined by poor service. Not busy and yet one order was forgotten so whilst 5 started their mains 1 had to wait for the pizza to be cooked. Then, when one pizza was requested with no cheese, it had cheese on it so after my friend started eating it, it had to go back and be re-done. She has an allergy against cheese and yet you still put cheese on the pizza. Chilli oil was requested, we were bought olive oil. Started pouring on the pizza——ruined. Just pathetic

We arrived a little early which was not a issue shown to our seats and given menus, our drinks order was taken and then our starters/mains , our starter arrived before any drinks i had to ask again for our drinks and they arrived after we had finished our starter,and they apologised about the mix up, so apart from the delay in the drinks our food was traditional Italian and very nice and we would go back

Visited for my wife's birthday and we had a great time. Staff were cheerful and attentive, accommodating small changes to dishes with no problem. will definitely be back. Both my wife and her friend used to come to La Piccola when they worked for Lloyd's bank some 15 years ago and they say that the quality and atmosphere have not changed in the interim and are still as good as ever.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Last came to Bournemouth a number of years ago and ate at La Piccalo and have talked about how fantastic the food was ever since... so on re visiting Bournemouth this year we made a point of returning . To be honest we were expecting that it might not live up to our memories but we have to say that the whole experience was just as good as we remembered. Well done for maintaining the standards over the years.

The service was excellent. They were very good when I was delayed in traffic and let the rest of my party wait for me to arrive
