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

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!
