“FRozen solid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

After being a customer for 15 years and seeing the first owner retire, the second owner move we were at first thrilled by the new owners menu and attitude. That was until we complained. Not a mtter of judgement like the pasta was toospicey! No, much more direct. My spareribs were frozen solid! The owner informs that the mico-wave must have been set wrong. OMG. Anyway, after being ranted at AND bullied we were compensaed by a glass of house wine. Gee whizz! I understand the none italian owner and chef informed people we were out for a freebie!!!! I love supporting loal businesses, but this one. Frozen ribs, chilly owner...
We now eat at the secod owners new place in the town centre.

“great food, warm and friendly welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

A small family run restaurant in timperley village, offers excellent authentic italian cuisine. We visited this restaurant for a friends birthday lunch, there were 9 adults and my 4 year old son. The restaurant owner was so friendly and welcoming and made a big fuss of my son. The tasty and beautifully presented food was exquisite. I will certainly be back, both with friends for an evening meal and for a family lunch. It is great having such a lovely restaurant locally.

“great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We had my mums 60th at Little Italy. The food and service we're excellent. V friendly staff. 17 of us dined and because of the numbers they asked where possible if we could pre order our meals. I thought that this was a good idea as it ment the service was quick and they had available the food everyone wanted.
Would definitely recommend and im sure ill be visiting again.

“Our Best Kept Local Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Lovely family run Restaurant.
Good extensive menu and always a few "specials" on the board.
Great service - always ready to offer alternatives or tweak a meal to your liking.
Reasonable wine list - not too pricey!
We rediscovered Little Italy between Christmas & New Year 2012 - my husband booked a romantic lunch for us, we used to visit regularly and will certainly be doing so again in the future!
They also have a takeaway menu and early-birds menu offers.
