“A new favourite in Lyme Regis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I recently visited Italia for a family dinner. It was our first visit and after seeing it regularly so busy we were keen to see what all the fuss was about. We were not disappointed as the quality of service and the fantastic food made for a great evening. The portion sizes were really good and the pizza's delicious, all of this coupled with a final bill that doesn't make your eyes water means it won't be long before we're back again!!

Many thanks for leaving us a great review. We enjoy having families in our restaurant and are very glad you enjoyed your meal and your pizzas. Thank you also for your comments about pricing as we do think our prices reflect the dishes we serve and do not agree with prices rising unnecessarily in some restaurants. We look forward to you returning to us soon.

We live in Lyme Regis and have now been to the restaurant 3 times! We love it. It's positively the best Italian food we have ever had and the service is impeccable.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I ate in this lovely restaurant a few weeks ago with my two daughters, we really enjoyed our meal. The service was great, super friendly but also really efficient. The owners clearly care deeply that you leave satisfied.

My older daughter was in raptures about the tomato sauce on her pasta, telling me I needed up my game & to get the recipe! My younger daughter being a fuss pot opted for a Margherita which I managed to get a taste of, it was delicious. The Parmigiana was the best I've ever had, just right. The decor also needs a mention, it's so lovely & airy, really well thought out & subtle - well done Italia you've bought something really fresh to the area. I'm really looking forward to visiting again.

Great to have your super feedback and thank your for leaving us a review. You are right-we do care greatly that all our customers leave satisfied and are glad that you and your family did. The chef takes great pride in creating all his pasta sauces from scratch so was very happy to hear about your daughter enjoying hers! Hope to welcome you back to our restaurant soon and thank you for taking the time to review us.

“Italia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Very good experience. In spite of slightly nervous waiting staff we enjoyed it.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Starter of crab, avocado and baby tomato was divine. Lasagne was perfect.
Best value in Lyme.

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant and thank you for your kind comments. You had one of our daily specials-the Crab Timbale to start which we are glad you thought was divine. Our chef enjoys making different dishes for daily specials so is glad they go down well. Thank you for mentioning the value also and we hope to see you back again soon

“Great Find !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

We were staying in Lyme Regis for a couple of days, we came across this restaurant but it was closed and no opening times anywhere. I rang up and it was an answer phone explaining they were closed all day Tuesday and a Wed afternoon. I didnt leave a message but imagine my surprise when i got a call back an hour or so later from the restaurant asking if they could help, how nice was that ! Anyway we booked a table, glad we did as the restaurant is fairly small, think about 10 or so tables but it is spotlessly clean and what a lovely warm welcome we got when we arrived ! We were shown to our reserved table and given menu's, we were told of the specials and a drinks order was taken. When we ordered we were surprised at how quick the food came - it was perfect, pipping hot, beautifully presented and very enjoyable. We decided to have desert something we dont have very often, again it was perfect ! So glad to have found this little gem, shame they were shut the day after as we would of gone back the next night it was so nice - highly recommended !

Thank you for your review and for recommending us. We are glad we could fit you in and that you enjoyed your meal and experience with us. We now have the opening hours printed in our window and on our front door so thank you for mentioning that as our blackboard obviously was not visible enough. We are very please to be called a gem and hope to see you if and when you return to Lyme Regis
