My wife and I, over on a visit from Guernsey were looking for something with a bit of ambience. Well we certainly got that and more. Food lovely, service great. Will be back for sure, many thanks to Marcello and his lovely staff.

We booked here after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. The starters were good however the prawns burnt your mouth as they were just too hot with the microwave. The main course was delicious seafood tagliatelle and my partner had steak which was tender and scrummy. Overall would recommend for an authentic italian restaurant

I took my wife here to celebrate our 10th wedding aniversary last week during a mini break to Poole. I chose it because of all the positive recommendations on Trip Advisor and I have to say we were not disappointed. The food was lovely and fresh and the service and attention to detail was spot on. I ordered the Lamb... More

I visited this gem of a restaurant for the third time last week and again have been blown away by the quality of the food, friendliness of the staff and the ambience inside. The owner and chef Marcello goes out of his way to ensure that each dish is cooked to perfection using the freshest ingredients. Nothing is too much... More

Diva's appears to be unsure as to whether it is a café/ice cream bar or a restaurant. As a result, the food is café quality at restaurant prices. Both my husband and myself ordered different chicken dishes, both were essentially a piece of plain grilled chicken breast with a rather flavourless sauce poured over the top. Our waitress was rather... More

This is the third time we have visited this restaurant and every time has been amazing. The food is delicious and the fillato dolcetta is gorgeous. We have also tried the king prawns and goats cheese bake which is also fab. To top it off the home made ice cream is yummy. Te restaurant is small and cosy with a... More

What a wonderful restaurant. Staff were friendly and attentive in a nice atmosphere. Whitebait as a starter was great, we shared -just as well as the portion was large. Sea bass was cooked to perfection and the chef produced a spaghetti Bol (not offered on the menu) of great quality even checking to see if we wanted mushrooms. A great... More

We had a great choice ranging from Bruchetta to King Prawns in Garlic for starters followed by the usual Pizza,s and Pasta's (mushroom ravioli superb) as well as... More

Thank you for such a good time and great food! Despite large number of guests - all was served on time and as tasty as can be. Highly recommend for a good party. Will try for quiet evening shortly. Thank you Marcello and staff!!

We recently had our private wedding function at Italian Diva Restaurant and were very happy with the whole experience. Great authentic food, prompt friendly service and home made ice-cream which was out of this world! Everyone loved their meals and the fantastic deserts. Thanks for making our day extra special. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be returning soon.
