On a Wednesday evening in early March, having popped in to book about 6 pm to eat later, we arrived to find no shortage of space. We were immediately impressed by the good attitude and attentiveness of the staff, including their helpful approach to my wife's dairy intolerance, and thereafter by the food which was served, up to and including the sweets.

And then, as one of the few tables still occupied, if not the only one, we suddenly felt forgotten. A member of staff came through the dining room several times, and spent time behind the bar (at the other end of the room) apparently stock-taking, without ever coming to us and asking whether we had enjoyed our sweets (which we had) or whether we would like coffees (which we did).

Eventually contact was resumed and, after enjoying the coffees but not the apologised-for small error on the bill, we departed (still somewhat amazed and having decided, reluctantly in some ways, to eat elsewhere on the following night).

We have to gather from the other reviews that our experience was not typical, but have understandably had to knock off one star from our rating.

Lovely, lovely food. The asparagus and sun-dried tomato risotto we had this evening was just heavenly. Little Italy has been a favorite of ours for years and will remain so. Highly recommended. Nice atmosphere. Friendly and personal service. .Go! Eat and enjoy!

Despite ringing last minute to get a table we luckily managed to get a table. Even though the restaurant has recently had to move the atmosphere was just as nice as their previous location with the red table clothes and candle's on the table. Made the mistake of having bread and olives before my main which meant I couldn't eat it all, despite it being absolutely lovely! The waiter very kindly boxed the left overs up for me so will be able to enjoy it all again tomorrow! I would definitely recommend.

Visited here last weekend with partner, sister and her husband for his birthday, lovely little place with great atmosphere. The menus are huge which is a good talking laughing point straight away and the food is great and tasty - I had pizza, and see myself as a bit of a pizza connoisseur, and thought it lacked something but it was nice enough.
All of the group were happy with their food and the staff were happy to put leftovers in a box for us to take home.
Check out the Ladies toilets (if you're a lady) they are quite something! :)
