“Excellent Italian food in Inverness”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Located on Stephens Brae at the end of the shopping precinct Little Italy is a wee gem, not big by any standard so a booking is advisable. Very good staff and an extensive food and wine menu. Visited with my wife on Saturday and will definately be back. The house spicy meatballs and goats cheese parcels wrapped in Parma ham were a very good choice to start with followed by chicken breast with a pancetta and mushroom sauce and steak with snails. Extra portions of chips and Beetroot and carrot salad were also very good. A fine selection of wines are available and by the glass of various sizes. We tend to go for this as my wife likes white wine while I prefer red. The desserts were summer fruit cheesecake and tiramisu, both very tasty and light not like some heavy ones you encounter.. Very happy with the bill, good quality and value. Highly reconmmended.

“Brindisi comes to Scotland”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

A little gem of a restaurant tucked away in the heart of the town. Smalll and intimate, great food and good wine. Staff were very friendly. A good start to a birthday night out.

“Lovely Little Restuarant”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a lovely place for a fantastic meal. Myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it is very small and maybe a little cramped. But the food and atmosphere more than makes up for this, so dont let it put you off.

“Lovely good, would visit again”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Food was delicious, I had pizza and partner had pasta, we both thoroughly enjoyed them. Only downside was the heat in the restaurant - we were glad to get outside in the fresh air afterwards. Service wasn't overly friendly but I might just be a bit fussy on that one - no one was rude by any means and food was fab, all in all a great find :)

Pizzas were quite tasty but ruined by the wine which was not good. Friendly waiter however the restaurant was far too hot it was quite uncomfortable.
