Location and contact

La Piccola Italia is one of Bournemouth’s longest established restaurants. We first opened our doors in May 1981 with the simple idea of serving authentic Italian dishes using the finest ingredients. Whilst offering our customers great value for money, with an informal but efficient service in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our new style menu features an array of Cicchetti and Charcuterie Boards where you can order a number of dishes between your table and enjoy a selection of different tastes in one sitting washed down with good wine, beer or even a cocktail. Followed by your favourite stone-baked pizza or pasta dishes. Using the best of modern and traditional Italian flavours we strive to

Had a reasonable meal. Ran out of draft beer on a Saturday lunchtime so were forced to drink bottled beer at £4-50 a pop and although the food was OK, I felt it was expensive for what it was.

We pre-booked table for 7:15pm Saturday evening on arrival had a warm welcome and staff very attentive. The restaurant was nicely laid out, spacious, comfortable with a relaxed setting, food was very nice, flavoursome and presented well. Would definitely recommend and would visit again.

We ate here whilst staying at a nearby hotel. Traditional Italian restaurant and atmosphere. Staff friendly and efficient, even though it was a very busy Friday night. Typical Italian food which was very good, but not large portions. Overall would recommend for couples and families.

It is a smallish restaurant. Not sure and its best to ring. There was no outside seating which is where you might find dogs in restaurants.
