We dropped in by chance after finding the place on Trip Advisor. We would never have seen it if it wasn't for this. We had an early meal at 5.30ish, hadn't booked a table but were accommodated quickly and the staff moved a spare table into a small space to seat us. The food was really great, had king prawns...

Wanted a restaurant in walking distance of the Mayflower Theatre for a pre-show meal. Originally wanted to go the Vestry but turned out it was shut for a private party that night - but this infact did us a favour. Piccolo Mondo has a very modest exterior. Infact if you didnt know it was there you wouldnt really see it.... More

This is my favourite restaurant, despite being possibly the smallest one I've ever visited. The service is second to none, always friendly and helpful, They always make you feel welcome. This is one of the few places that have perfected the art of serving customers, That difficult line between leaving you too long and constantly hurrying you to order or... More

This was my first visit to Piccolo Mondo, but it will not be my last! Fantastic food, friendly service and brilliant value for money. Best Italian by far in Southampton!

We had a meal for two here on the back of the recommendations on Tripadvisor. Food and service were great and the place has a true Italian feel to it. Portions were good and the chef was upset when my wife did not eat all her main meal but it was just portion size. We will be back soon.

I will start by saying that if the location of the restaurant was in the center of London, I would happily pay 5x the price for what I had. Everything is top notch (bread sticks before the food, really comforting staff, Italian atmosphere and very good food of course). This restaurant is classified at the moment of writing this review...

While the location is unusual and hidden, the food is the opposite. Beautiful food and large portions. I've lost count of the amount of times I've eaten at this restaurant. The staff are lovely and friendly. The only bad thing I could say about this place is the menu is very difficult to choose from as there are so many... More

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Southampton and I have recommended it to so many people I have lost count! The atmosphere is amazing, the food is incredible and amazing value (I will never try anything other than Carbonara because I can't imagine how it could possibly be nicer!) and the staff are friendly and helpful but not...
