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.
Lovely Italian food with lovely staff. Myself and my husband love eating out here. A real Italian feel.
Never had a bad meal. The service is always excellent and the staff are professional and friendly.
A 5 star traditional Italian with great food, great environment and great service. Well done guys 🇮🇹
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.
Always a pleasant experience with excellent food and friendly staff.
I haven't been here for about 10 years, since I moved jobs. Still fantastic! Best panna cotta ever!
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
Food was superb
Very nice food and drink will come back again. Thanks k you for everything
Always reliable and well above average. New tapas options very welcome and some interesting options!
Lovely valentines meal
Excellent evening with good authentic Italian food. The Lady who served us was relaxed and friendly and could not have been more helpful
Simple feedback......always a WOW!!!
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.
2nd time here great food great service will def come again
It’s always a pleasure to visit this restaurant . Staff is friendly , bubbly and always around checking if customers are happy . Would definitely recommend to visit .
A lovely friendly, authentic Italian restaurant.
Your waitress from Bologna was delightful and a pleasure to chat to. Lovely evening and be great to come back again .
A brilliant restaurant we have visited for years, and will continue to do so. Can’t wait to go again!
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.
Great dinner, thank you
Should have ordered veg with my omelette as salad was a little tired.......service a tiny bit slow but it it Christmas so probably to be expected as they are very busy....but staff are always very friendly. Will go again and would recommend.
Excellent, good quality food. Freindly helpful staff. Wonderful atmossphere (even on a quiet thursday night)
We enjoyed our date night here! Good food and service.
