Although food is still good we missed the lovely waitresses Elena and Amaia and now Ferdinando who ran the place in a friendly efficient manner always pleasant and correct .It is nice to go to an Italian restaurant and be served by Italian people it all adds to ambiance .Not sure we will be back for a while.

I love Little Italy! It's one of my regular haunts for decent food in Inverness. Friendly staff, simple menu, great wine and lively atmosphere. I took my mum here for her birthday lunch and she was even serenaded by one of the waiters, everyone loved it! If you want gorgeous food at a reasonable price, this is the place to... More

Twice in one, first and last time. Fake Italian-country style furniture should have warned me (being Italian i know what I am looking for). At lunch time there was only another couple in the restaurant. Still on the threshold an unfriendly waiter behind the bar shouted:"Do you want a table?" (what else..?). Four young members of staff constantly chatting among... More

Fantastic food, setting is quite small, very hot and old fashioned looking but none of that matters once you taste the food there was quite a wait for the food but it was very busy and the food was worth waiting for.waitors were polite and friendly. The meatball starter is devine I will definitely be returning and have recommended to... More

Regularly work in Inverness and had heard great things about this place, so we were all very disappointed that it didn't come close to it's reputation. There's not really much I can say about Little Italy. It's a very cosy little place that looked like it has the potential to be great, but the food was average at best, the... More

After being warned that one needed to book, the expectation was that the food would be superb. This was not the case. My companion's pasta was quite good, by my meat was tough and the combination of sauces and salad was not appropriate and certainly not what one would expect in a restaurant serving Italian style food.

The restaurant is easily accessible from the multi-storey car park and looks delightful and welcoming. When enquiring about a table for two at 6pm we were told all the tables were booked for 6.30pm but we could have a tiny table for two right by the door if we could be gone by 7pm! The waiter / owner was polite... More
