Bad service. Bland food. Took them minutes to acknowleadge us. Poor service - rushed all the time. Food was blah! Not bad, but nothing special. But the worst thing was that at 8:20pm, before we even had a chance to order desert, one waitress came and said (literally) "guys, we need the table in 10 minutes"!!!! Never in my past 30 years of traveling all over the world something like this happened! My advice, do yourself a favour and just avoid this place. It was really a waste of an evening for us.

We have gone to Little Italy 4 times now and it is fast becoming our favourite Italian restaurant - the food is quite simply fantastic, good traditional Italian food cooked to perfection, and always a warm welcome from the very attentive and friendly staff.

Do yourself a favour and go to one of the many other Italian restaurants in St Andrews. Bad attitude and service; didn't even wait for the food.

Lovely little Italian restaurant with great ambiance and good quality food.. BUT.. We were there for lunch on a Saturday and opted for the fixed priced menu at £8.95 including a drink. The problem was that my partner order the cannelloni and received only a SINGLE little tube! Tasty but not nearly enough food even for a small lady!!
I questioned the waitress as to whether this was a normal portion or whether they reduced the portion size because of the special offer and she confirmed this was the case. So, I asked her for an extra portion and she happily brought out another single tube 10 minutes later.
However, as we were leaving we saw another diner who must have ordered the same dish from the main menu and not only did his dish contain THREE fat tubes of cannelloni but also came dressed with fresh tomatoes on the top and bread on the side!!
I explained to the duty manager that not only was all of this more than a little unfair but that this practice is strictly illegal under trading standards regulations. His reaction was merely an Italian style shrug along with the statement that they has brought us some more food and hadn't even charged us for it!!
I have now filed a formal complaint with Fife Trading Standards and hope that they will follow this through and stamp out this cavalier attitude to customer service and value.
