Little Italy is a lovely restaurant just outside Dumfries centre. There's plenty of parking and the restaurant tables have recently been reorganised from square tables in rows to circular tables - a nicer layout. Food: Calamari cooked in a light batter to perfection, while the pizza dough balls with a dipping sauce were pleasant - but the main menu only... More

A barn type restaurant with good air conditioning and friendly staff. Went on a Monday evening when many restaurants are quiet but this place was pleasantly buzzing.

I must say I was somewhat disappointed it seems rather over hyped and didn't deliver the dinning experience I was led to believe it would . Service was very slow unless you happened to be one of the owners friends i.e you drove a flash car in that case then they would grovel around you , when our wine did... More

Went to this restaurant for a special dinner. Food was lovely and reasonably priced. I want to go back and have another chocolate and mint pudding very soon! Service was good too, didnt feel they wanted you in rush your meal and swipe the plate away. lots of time to chat and relax.

This restaurant is well place not far from the centre of Dumfries, near to a number of good B&Bs. It is in an attractive building with an outside seating area. Inside it is on two floors which are well design to provide a welcoming relaxing environment. The staff are welcoming and helpful. There is an extensive menu choice featuring pizzas... More

We ate here twice whilst in the area. The food was good, the pasta was home-made and pizzas were made in a proper pizza oven. Prices were reasonable and the decor was good. It may be worth booking if you intend to visit during busy periods or at the weekend.

I dined with 2 others, who like me are vegan. We found a good choice was available and I chose vegan pasta and a few sides...all good. Service good with nice friendly staff. When in Dumfries again I would definitely dine here again.

Thank you once again Little Italy. Keep up the good work.

A table for 6 had been booked. When we arrived we were directed to go upstairs. We hesitated since stairs would be difficult for a member of the dining party, waitress immediately recognized the problem and made a quick change to a downstairs table with no fuss at all. Some members of the party had dined there previously, some younger... More
