Romantic meal

I have been to some top restaurants in my life including Antony Worrall Thompson's. This restaurant is easily on par with, if not better than ALL of these, and from a bargain hunters point of view the price was perfect! The easiest 5 stars I have ever given!

An absolutely delightful gem in the heart of the city centre. Delicious, wholesome Italian food. Friendly attentive staff. Excellent value for money. Cosy atmosphere. With so many chains around us, I thought these lovely family-run restaurants had disappeared for ever. I've been to Piccolo Mondo three times in the last few months with my granddaughter. We both love it.

I've been there already two times, both for a lunch. If I wouldn't read the opinions here, I would never got there. This place is squeezed in the corner and easy to miss, when you passing by. From the outside, it looks like a kebab booth. The inside is totally different and looks like the Italian eatery. The food is... More

Absolutely love this place and can not wait to go back, first time here pre theatre evening. Everyone was so pleased with the delicious pasta dishes served, shame we had to rush our meal due to us making the mistake of not booking earlier. Highly recommend the lasagne, best i have ever had!

I looked for a restaurant for the night before a cruise and found this place on Tripadvisor. The reviews were really great for this place and I have pleasure in writing another one ! The place is small and bustling, the food was great. We had pasta and pizza and all really enjoyed our dishes. Would not hesitate to visit... More

This humble looking eatery would possibly go missed as its off a side street and inconspicuously located at the entrance to Marland's Shopping Centre delivery entrance DONT LET THAT PUT YOU OFF! We booked in advance to ensure a pre-theatre show time table of 5:30pm and thank goodness we did. The long galley style restaurant filled up about twenty minutes... More

We recently visited here for a meal for our anniversary before going to the mayflower- food was absolutely amazing- such generous portions and freshly cooked to order- made sure we had enough time to get to theAtre and couldn't believe how reasonable - definitely will be back again- x

I first went to this restaurant in the 1970s and a return 40 years later did not disappoint, an Italian experience to stimulate the taste buds. The food here is fresh and tasty bursting with flavour and a pleasant alternative to the many Italian chains which fail to say "this is freshly made with a family recipe". The Staff and... More

Visited for dinner before going to a show at The Mayflower. This is a small, clearly family run, restaurant. The staff were very helpful both with the booking and making sure that we ate in time to get to the theatre for the show. The meal was fantastic, probably the most authentic I've had outside of Italy. The food and... More
