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.
We have been visitors to Bournemouth many times and have dined at many of the Italian restaurants. I have to say that La Piccola is one of the finest - the best freshly cooked Italian food at very reasonable prices, sensible portions and staff who care. A very enjoyable evening.
Good food and always a varied menu.
Excellent value Excellent service Well worth a visit
Excellent food the staff were very friendly, would definitely recommend. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Was the best Italian restaurant iv been too
Nice meal but portions could be bigger for the prices charged.
Great service and good food
This was the first time we came to La Piccola Italia Bournemouth. It was lovely. The meal we had was great and the staff were very pleasant and made us very welcome. Would recommend to our friends and family.
online booking made very easy
Friendly staff, good service and great food.
My family thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at this perfect find in Bournemouth.
An excellent menu reasonably priced. A very pleasant atmosphere and great service with the right amount of time between courses and nothing rushed.
We absolutely love it here, only two things I would comment on for our last visit is we were sat out of the way in relation to everyone else, and the woman who bought us our bill, who hadn’t served us all night tried to force us to tip her. All in all, the food is amazing, all other service was great and we will 100% be coming back!
Never had a bad experience in all the years I’ve been coming here
Great Italian restaurant with great staff and wonderful menu
Delicious food served in a friendly and informal atmosphere by staff who knew what they were about. My wife (non-meat eater) and I (omnivorous) both found plenty of menu choices to satisfy our needs and the food did not disappoint.
Lovely meal, good service, would recommend
Me & my family have been going to your restaurant for a number of years now. The meals have always been so nice & tasty, and special, that is why we kept on returning. I even celebrated my 50th Birthday there in Dec 2016. However when returning this September we noticed the menu had changed. The meals were quite bland and we were left disappointed. Why change something that was right and special? A meal that was always a talking point on our holiday. I am sorry but me & my family will not be returning there in future.
I would definitely go again!
Lovely attentive staff , great food , good price .
Food is delicious. Staff are a great laugh and friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is romantic and chilled, although when it’s busy it can be quite compact! But nothing can be done about that unfortunately. Would highly recommend for a date night or something.
Most Excellent - every time we visit Bournemouth we come to La Piccola , its fabulous !! cant recommend it enough . Ann and Mike Hobbs, Frome ,Somerset.
We have visited you for lunch on many occasions over last 3 years. On our most recent visit we noticed that portion sizes have reduced, there is a much more restricted menu and coffee/mints no longer included. We can understand that prices have to go up. In the past the lunch set menu was extremely good value- it's a shame, however, that in addition to a price increase the other changes have been necessary.
The things we wanted on the menu you didn't have and the food we did get was poor. We will not come again
Drinks were overpriced.
