OK - but only just

Perhaps it's me, but I expect my lasagne to be oven baked and not served with random pieces of sheet pasta over which a bolognese sauce has been poured - AND THEN MICROWAVED !! So much so that the outside food was too hot to eat, whereas the centre of the dish was lukewarm. When the dish was... read more

My mother and I have just had an enjoyable lunchtime in Piccolo Mondo. There are so many places to have lunch in Wimborne and quite by accident we saw the sign that said £4.99 for half a pizza and salad (until 2 I think it was). I felt I had to write a review as the service was 5 star... More

We've been coming here from the start (early 80's when it was just off the square) and it has been consistently great. The atmosphere is always lovely, like being part of the family....an Italian family! There is always a good selection of great Italian food as well as the pizzas that are unique to Piccolo Mondo. Always fresh, cooked in... More

We called in for lunch on the recommendation of friends. The service was good and we received a warm welcome. The Pizzas were lacking. They felt like shop bought bases and the toppings were sparse. Perhaps we are getting used to better, with the profusion of wood burning ovens in the newer restaurants. One of our party wasn't very hungry... More

Went to Piccolo Mondo last Saturday and was a little disappointed on this occasion. Service and atmosphere was fine but I wasn't hugely impressed with the food on this visit. Three of us had choices from the daily specials and none of us were terribly excited by them. Its a nice little spot and I think we would go back,... More

I have been coming to this Italian restaurant since my Dad moved to the town 20 years ago & I have never had a bad or indifferent meal here. They serve succulent pizzas, pasta, meat & fish dishes in an informal atmosphere. The staff are very attentive and extremely friendly & the restaurant is suitable for all types of diners,... More

We had heard fab reviews about this little hideaway Italian and can absolutely see why. Booking the table was pleasant, we were made to feel at home the moment we arrived. A comfy booth with cushions and unique lighting made it feel like you were the only ones there. Brilliant service from all the staff, and lots of cheesy humour... More

Hubbie and I enjoyed an evening here recently. Lovely fresh pizzas with tasty toppings. Attentive, friendly staff and a warm inviting atmosphere. We have always enjoyed the food here over the past 25 years and have never been disappointed. Their garlic bread is light, yet very garlicky!!!

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and had a good experience on the whole, but my latest visit shows a real downturn in quality. I ordered pate, which was sent back as it tasted odd. The manager admitted later that the pate had already had a complaint that day, yet they kept it on the menu... More
