Fresh and delicious

My husband and I had lunch here last week, it was a first visit but will not be a last! The food was delicious. I had fish in garlic sauce, my husband had fillet steak in peppercorn sauce, we both really enjoyed our meal. The wine list is good and reasonably priced.

Took mum for birthday and there were 6 of us. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Ice cream is amazing. Everything is cooked to order and the chef was friendly and came out to chat and discuss the food. Waiters were all friendly and they brought out a cake for mum and sang happy birthday. Overall really great place to... More

Visited this restaurant earlier this evening and was extremely impressed by the friendly caring approach of the staff and the spectacular food. The home made Italian ice cream we had for desert was incredible. Kind regards the egg guy

I wouldn't normally bother to go to the trouble of writing a review but was so impressed with the quality, presentation and taste of the food, together with the friendly, attentive and accomodating staff I wanted to let everyone in on this superb Italian family run business.....a trip to Poole would be wasted without a visit to this fab little...

My partner and I took my elderly parents to this authentic friendly restaurant as a Christmas treat. The food was superb, we ordered from the Chef's Recommendations and we weren't disappointed. My sea bass was cooked to perfection and my dads steak was one of the best he has ever had. We will be returning very soon in the New... More

We have now visited this bistro restaurant several times with friends and the owner, when time allows, is happy to come out from the kitchen to talk to his guests. The restaurant is an ice cream parlour during the day but transforms into a very cosy and welcoming place to eat in the evening. We have never had a bad... More

I had walked passed this restaurant for years and never once thought about going there, a mistake on my behalf! The front of house is memorable, in a good way. The food is lovely and the wine is well priced. Would recommend 100%

following Trip advisor reviews I booked here for Saturday. On checking it out in the daylight I was dubious as it looked most unappealing for a romantic meal ... however we persevered and coming back was worth it. This small bistro style restaurant provided tasty food, we had the 2 variants of mussels, and then 2 steaks which were cooked... More

This small Italian restaurant near Poole Marina was a lucky find. We shared a starter of tiger prawns in garlic followed by Vittelo con Funghi Porcini and Vittelo Pizzaiola. Everything was freshly prepared and service was excellent. The menu offered a good selection of Italian dishes including pasta and pizzas. Whilst not totally full, booking in advance is recommended.

My boyfriend and I went to Diva last night after reading great reviews online and it certainly lived up to them. Had olives to start, the Siciliana pizza and salmon penne for mains and affogato for dessert - all were absolutely delicious and lovely wine too. Great service and nice atmosphere, will definitely come back again!
