I remember going to this restaraunt as a child in the early 80s with my parents and have always returned when in southampton. Now I take my own children and it's very nostalgic for me. The food is excellent, the staff are wonderful, and great with well behaved kids. Not to many of these gems left.

Visited this restaurant during a stay at Southampton during the Boat Show and when I saw the front of the restaurant I was ready to leave. Am I so glad that I didn't. Amazing food and a superb service - the food was delicious and I'm so sorry that I was ready to judge a book by its cover. Ladies... More

Was introduced to this little Italian restaurant by a friend last year and now use it regularly! The staff are always very friendly and welcoming.

The food is always well presented, hot, tasty and... More

We chose Piccolo Mondo based on Trip Advisor recommendations and they didn't let us down. Its a small Restaurant a few minutes walk from the central Park which was handy for the kids to have a run around (excellent play area for kids by the way). I couldn't find the Restaurant as I had left my map behind so the... More

Visited this restaurant this evening with all the family celebrating a birthday following theatre. We had booked because we were 9, and the restaurant is not very big. The service was friendly and efficient, the food freshly cooked, delicious and too large portions for some. They were happy and helpful with the toddler. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a... More

This is a great Little Italian restaurant. The food is fab. The best pizza I've tasted and the pasta is great. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much. Great food coupled with great service what more could you ask for. I try to go there once a week and children love it

Visited in march 2014 with friends, after having heard so much about its good authentic italian cuisine, but got disappointed as soon as we tasted our food. We ordered a variety of dishes, from lasagna, to pizza, pasta, calzone etc, any of them was bad tasting, but that was just not italian cuisine, and not only because of sauces and... More

I use to eat here every week 15 years or so ago. It was like going over to Mum's to eat, we knew every dish on the menu and always got a warm welcome. When the owners then sold it the food began to slip and I moved away and then I just kind of forgot about it. But having... More
