Reopened recently and fantastic service and food. It was nice to see a wood pizza oven and the pizza proved this. Good atmosphere, I would recommend this place to everyone.

I think this has recently reopened as Piccola Italia (August 2014) - excellent timing for us on the last night of our holiday in Moniaive. Plenty of options, but we all chose pizza - I was impressed that our octagenarian could have a child's portion. I can particularly recommend the vegetarian option (ahem, with added pepperoni) but they all looked... More

Very friendly service and excellent food. It was my first visit here and sadly my last as they are closing due to domographics which make it unprofitable. HOWEVER - They are still in Dumfries and must be visited!!

In the heart of Moniaive, delicious stone baked pizzas with a crispy dough. Fabulous. And with the Green Tea Room next door, this is Scotland's food village.

As a family of 11 we booked here Saturday just gone. The warm welcome was lovely and our table was more than big enough for us all, there is nothing worse than being squashed in when you are a large group. From the beginning the service was first class, the restaurant was packed but the girls waiting tables were quick... More

Ate here with friends a couple of weeks ago after hearing good things about Little Italy. Restaurant is a nicely decorated, cosy room with views from the large rear windows. Staff were very friendly and very attentive. When our starters arrived we were very impressed with the presentation and they tasted fantastic. We then expected the mains to be of... More
