It is a good idea to book in advance as this restaurant can be very busy, especially at peak times. I have visited on three occasions and every time the food has been good. It is worth noting that pizzas come with garlic oil unless you ask for it not to be used. This is in quite small print... read more

I had a lovely time at Piccolo Mondo with my partner who suggested we go for Valentine's Day. The owner was wonderful and engaging whilst also being part of the service (which was a bonus to this restaurant). We had a lunch time deal, pizzas which were lovely for the price and a dessert to share was ridiculously beautiful. The... More

While staying for a 2 night break in Wimborne Minster, we went to Piccolo Mondo the first night and had such a lovely meal that we decided to go back again for our last night. The food was so delicious and the service so friendly, that we didn't even bother looking for anywhere else to eat. Highly recommended.

Had a family meal here last night. Staff gave us a warm & friendly welcome & looked after us really well. The food was really good & everyone was nicely full after our main course. Not wanting to miss out on the delights of the dessert menu we had a delicious banana split between three of us! So glad we... More

Went on Saturday for dinner...first impressions were ok, very friendly but it appeared the only person to be Italian was the owner. The decor seemed pretty worn out with horrible stains on the carpet. My starter was Country Mushrooms...they were exceedingly uniform..my guess they were straight out of a can, give them a miss. The main was a Calzone, never... More

In a moment of spontaneity we ate here yesterday before going to a show at the Tivoli. We had the avocado special and pate for starters. Both came quickly and were very tasty. The pate came with garlic flatbread instead of the usual melba toast style cracker - this worked really well. The avocado starter was generous too, we were... More

Going out for a meal is a special occasion for me, and I, not unreasonably, expect food to be of a standard higher than my home cooking, not difficult, but this restaurant failed miserably. This is my first negative review, but I have to be honest - the food was appalling! My son ordered the soup. It looked like water... More

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 returned to... 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
