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.
Won’t be coming back.
Thoroughly recommended for an authentic Italian dining experience. Great ambience, great food and great staff.
Always professional. I didn’t give five stars, because there wouldn’t be any room for improvement
Nice food and good service great value for money if you get the lunch deal!
Food was good but not very hot. Service good. Could be more choice for vegetarians
This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Last came to Bournemouth a number of years ago and ate at La Piccalo and have talked about how fantastic the food was ever since... so on re visiting Bournemouth this year we made a point of returning . To be honest we were expecting that it might not live up to our memories but we have to say that the whole experience was just as good as we remembered. Well done for maintaining the standards over the years.
The service was excellent. They were very good when I was delayed in traffic and let the rest of my party wait for me to arrive
Absolutely lovely atmosphere and friendly staff! The lasagne was fantastic!
A lovely meal, very tasty food, good value, friendly, attentive and professional service.
A very cool place. (It does happen so much in Borenemough).
Girlfriend and I always come here for our anniversaries and special occasions, food is always excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. We always recommend La Piccola to friends!
I’ve been dining at Piccola for many years. Food always great and so good to eat in traditional Italian restaurant.
The staff are attentive and funny. We always have a nice time at this restaurant. We have had a Prosecco brunch here a fews time and the food is good quality and value for money.
Beautiful meal, amazing staff! Would recommend to anyone!
Delicious pizza so much nicer than the chains!
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
