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.
Service was really bad which is why I won't be returning. Waited 15 minutes for a jug of tap water. As it was early evening we were told the food would be 20 to 25 minutes. We had to wait over 35! Nobody asked us at any time if our meal was ok but seemed to be asking everybody else. Even got the bill wrong at the end by trying to overcharge us. A definite no return!
Always a great meal!!
We are very happy but as old regular customers we would like to see a bigger menu with a wider range of dishes
Please bring back the Pizza Rustica! It was the best pizza I've ever had, but unfortunately you took it off the menu.
Lovely people, lovely food... we all enjoyed our evening x
Very good pizza!
Great value lunch. Staff are all really friendly and the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere.
Consistently good standards of service and dining experience at every visit. Highly recommended.

Went to La Piccola for our anniversary, lovely authentic Italian restaurant we both had the Lamb which was cooked to perfection. The staff were great and made us feel very welcome, will definitely be back next visit give it a try you will not be disappointed.
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for a few years and I’ve never had anything to complain about. Great staff, great service, great food
One of our favourite places in Bournemouth!
Well done, a proper traditional Italian restaurant, excellent in all respects.
Consistently good standards of food and service experienced on every occasion we have visited this restaurant. Highly recommended.
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
