Enjoyed a meal here on a Saturday evening whilst staying in Southampton. Found it on Trip Adviser and liked the sound of it, so booked a table - which was definitely the right thing to do as the place was full! Having said that, it didn't feel crowded and we didn't feel rushed. Staff provide a very friendly and efficient... More

Piccolo Mondo as far as I believe is an authentic family run Italian restaurant. I visited with my partner after almost 6 years of knowing it was there and always wanting to go. I always knew that I'd be impressed and I wasn't wrong. In Fact, it was over and above my expectations. The staff here were very polite, friendly... More

For those that haven't been to this hidden Italian Restaurant (Bistro) then you really must. The food & service are always second to none, never had a bad one in all the years we've been visiting here. The staff are always polite, friendly & very welcoming. Revisited for Valentines evening and despite how busy they were they never faulted in... More

Brushetta for starter was great and we both had a Spaghetti / King Prawn special which was really tasty. Quick service with lovely staff.... More

Booked in for valentines day and was expecting a very busy day which it was! Was quickly bought to our table, and gave us a rose due to the days occasion which was a lovely surprise. Was quickly served with drinks which even tasted better than most restaurants, shortly after receiving our garlic bread starter we were amazed at the... More

Came here based on a friends recommendation which was a good job really or else I would have never found it!! This was the best Italian meal I've ever had (and I've visited Rome twice!) The food is fresh, authentic and packed full of flavour. Staff are friendly and attentive plus the atmosphere is cosy and charming. I loved our... More

I found this via Trip Advisor - I don't think I'd have come here otherwise as it's tucked out of the way down a dead end. I had a generous and tasty bruschetta to start followed by a generous and tasty carbonara. The house red was very nice too. The restaurant is a cosy little place and there was a... More

Heard about this restaurant a while ago but hadn't been until this week. The place is very small but enough to sit as many people as they can comfortably. The ambient is quite old fashioned but I really liked the pictures on the wall the fact it's all very simple. Th service was really good and even though they were... More
