After not eating out for a while, it was good to come back to Italia and have a generous and delicious meal. I had the porchetta with vegetables, and the extra jug of tasty sauce was a welcome bonus. My friends had excellent choices too....We will return.More

I came here with my partner for what I expected to be a flavourful and authentic meal. I was duly disappointed. The food was bland and tasted cheap and inauthentic. The atmosphere was nice but seemed a little forced and the waitresses tended to loiter...behind the bar awkwardly, my partner and I were most enthusiastically acknowledged when we were leaving. Might’ve been better if it was cheaper, we expected better.More

A favourite restaurant in Lyme Regis which never disappoints. Pasta dish was lovely and the chocolate ice-cream is heavenly. Previously came here in March 2020 and was pleased to see that the restaurant has weathered the pandemic to date.

Sorry to say blandest bowl of pasta I have ever been served. It was the mushroom tagliatelle. Just had no flavour - and I'm sure I didn't have Covid! My husband's pasta also had very little flavour. Very disappointing. The tiramisu afterwards was nice. Didn't...really have time to complain about the pasta as we were going to the theatre.More

We have had take away from Italia quite a while ago but never got round to eating in the restaurant. Should have done sooner! The staff were very friendly, very relaxed environment. 5 of us ate; starters, mains & deserts. All very nice meals, good...sized portions. Good value. Will definitely come again.More

For people who visited before lockdown, you need to know this restaurant is now completely different. The menu is very limited and it has gone downmarket.

We had a meal at Italia which was fine but not special. Italia specialises in Pizza so maybe we should have had that. No issues with Italia - all clean and service fine - just average food though.

We booked to return here after a lovely meal last year on our trip to Lyme Regis and were not disappointed. Alex answered my emails promptly to make our reservation. The staff were very attentive and the pizza was delicious. We would highly recommend Italia...but make sure you book in advance. When our daughter couldn’t finish her pizza, staff offered to box it to bring home. We will be back next year!More
