I visited this restaurant 3 times over the 2 weeks I was staying in Inverness and it is one of the best there. The menu has a lot of choice and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Finally visited Little Italy on Wednesday, we were quite surprised to get a table at short notice, especially as it was the height of tourist season. Food was superb, as was the service and the bill... Only quibble I had was the three 'lads' who were very loud and swore constantly. I asked the server to have a word as... More

Whilst the restaurant was very full and despite our table not being quite ready, the staff couldn't have been more polite and welcoming. I had Salmon Risotto which I would say was absolutely delicious! Speedy and friendly service, great food, will definitely visit again when next in this area. Well worth a visit, but must book a table.

We loved this little spot. It came highly recommended and it lived up to its praise. The food was wonderful and the owners and workers who were related to the owner, were really wonderful - accomodating and helpful and they made for a delightful evening.

First night of our holiday in the Highlands, and we chose a good Italian restaurant in Inverness to celebrate. The bruschetta to start was good, but my calzone main course was possibly the best calzone I've ever tasted. My wife's salmon risotto was also excellent. We had cheesecake and tiramisu for our desserts, and these were also very good. The... More
