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 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
