Small place but Delicious food

We were visiting Poole, and on our way home, fancied an Italian. Went on trip advisor, and found Italian Diva, so we went to find it, which at first proved difficult. Not the easiest to find, and only small, and on first viewing, we thought it was closed. However... We entered the restaurant, and... read more

Italian food cooked with passion, It is all here pizza, pasta and specials such as Dutch Veal. This independent Italian cooks to order using the best ingredients he can source which results in freshly cooked amazing food. It is also good value. It is however also quite small inside since it is impossible to produce such fine food in quantity.... More

We went for dinner on Tuesday evening after reading some TripAdvisor reviews, and they were absolutely right. Friendly, efficient service and excellent Sicilian food and wine. The seafood pasta is highly recommended. So different from chains and over-rated 'fine dining' restaurants. We had a most enjoyable meal in pleasant surroundings.

Our visit here was purely down to the ratings it already has here on TripAdvisor and our location at the time. There were several other Italian restaurants in Poole but we went for this as we wanted something special for our visit. We walked past at first and it was only down to looking hard that we stopped and found... More

Very attentive staff managed to fit us in even though they were fully booked! We had a really good dinner with wonderful Sucilian wines . Everything tasted freshly made as it was. We had just arrived from London and looked it up. Please try it, you won't be disappointed, that's for sure!

Went this evening with friends, all local. How on earth we've never been here before is a complete mystery. Wonderful food, great ambience and fabulous staff, will definitely return.
