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.
Amazing totally recommend Good food Private environment Good and quick service
We returned following our previous amazing experience 5 years ago. Not being local to Bournemouth, the previous experience drew us back on our return to the City. The food was amazing again. The waiting team were down to just 2, one of which appeared to be relatively new, so the experience and atmosphere were not up to the previous level. I’m sure this will be fixed. For great quality food, well cooked and presented, I highly recommend this restaurant
Delicious pre show dinner. Every course superb
We ate at La Piccola Italia twice on a recent stay in Bournemouth. On both occasions we received excellent service, fabulous food & wine and enjoyed the ambience & intimate atmosphere of the restaurant. Highly recommend.
Excellent starters (smoked salmon & mushroom brushetta) and good seabass & pizzas. Pleasant staff.
Enjoyable, but perhaps not as good as previous visit which would have rated 5 stars across the board. Slight mix up on sides order, fries not as 'skinny' as before, otherwise good, spoilt a little by early evening crowding to the front of the dining area.
The food was delicious and service was great too - thank you for having us!
Brilliant food and service
Really lovely little find ... enjoyed everything
Excellent value for money, speedy, jolly service and best Pizza in town!
Lovely food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Authentic Italian food at sensible prices.
Absolutely great find of a place, lovely food, great staff and we weren't rushed at all, the only reason I gave 4 stars for service is we had to ask twice for the dessert menu, it was busy and we will definitely coming again as we visit Bournemouth often.
Two pizza were slightly burnt.
We booked dinner for around 20 people who were taking part in a conference at Bournemouth University the following day and were given two tables in the back room, which gave us privacy and the ability to move around to talk to different people. The food was very good and the staff coped well with our very varied orders, dietary preferences and our each paying separately at the end! We'd definitely recommend it for the food, the friendly staff and the general atmosphere.
As always, very friendly service and delicious food. We’ve been coming back for years!
Only Marked atmosphere down as it was early evening and there were not many diners
Absolutely fantastic restaurant and beautiful food, would highly recommend
Lovely helpful staff and gorgeous food - what more could you ask for?
Nice cosy place. Good service and food
Nice decor and very good pizzas. Squid starter was disappointing. A few thin squid rings with more salad garnish than squid. Service was attentive but a lot awkward. Maybe slight hesitation due to language barrier. Bur friendly and helpful.
Great service and value for money. We went for the bottomless brunch and will be coming back again!
Always good, with the staff very professional
Good Service and food as always
