Lovely resturaunt that is the oldest italian in Southampton, it's a hidden gem tucked away behid the Marlands and you probably wouldn't even know it was there if you wasn't from around here. The food is always rich and full of flavour, they only hold 30 people as the place is so small but that adds to the charm of... More

Husband and I popped in here for dinner mid week. Haven't been in here since the 80s and we were slightly apprehensive about what to expect. We weren't disappointed. Good tasty food, reasonably priced and very helpful staff. Will be back again.

I have visited Piccolo Mondo regularly for 4 years and it has never failed to impress. An intimate, friendly restaurant with excellent service and a fantastic selection of traditional Italian cuisine. Prices are incredibly reasonable considering the quality of the food. I strongly recommend the lasagne, the bruschetta is outstanding and the tiramisu is worth a visit alone. It's a... More

Had lunch today. Lunch time special £5.95 for any pizza or pasta. Fantastic value and delicious food. A large portion (forgive the pun) is a must in my family so this lovely little restaurant ticks all the boxes.

Forget the outside, the decor inside and the views at Windsor Terrace. Just go inside and sample the excellent fare provided by the owners. Additionally the wine is very quaffable and like the food excellent value and served with a smile.

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
