We have just returned home from our annual fortnight in Poole. We have been holidaying in the town for the past 10 years and have always been regulars at Italian Diva since it first opened. As in previous years, we have again visited this lovely restaurant many times during our holiday. We are delighted to report that Marcello and his... More

A small restaurant just opposite the Poole Museum; as total strangers we were greeted warmly, which is always a great start. We tried four different starters from cockles, calamari and tiger prawns all were well presented and cooked to perfection. The main courses equally impressive and the lasagna/e was really good and with all the dishes having that 'just like... More

Based on tripadvisor reviews we booked whilst in Poole. -highly recommended as the restaurant seems quite popular. Again based on the reviews we both opted for different steak meals. Excellent choice as we both really enjoyed them. Friendly staff also helped to make it great night out. Highly recommend the restaurant.

Outstanding meal yet again. It was a wonderful family night out. We had 2 glasses of wine, 2 waters, 2 cokes. 1 prawn, 1 calamari, 1 salad & 1 bruschetta as starters. Seafood tagliatelle, penne nova, porchini ravoli, calamari as mains. We all had 2 scoops of ice-cream/sorbet for a total of £91. Outstanding and worth the £15 tip.

Last Friday we finally tried the Italian Diva after meaning to go there for ages. It was worth the wait! We ate from the "daily specials" menu and the food was delicious. The wine was very drinkable and the service was perfect. It is small but i think that adds an intimacy and the service feels personal. We will be... More

We arrived just after they opened but had not made a reservation . However they made us very welcome and explained they would need the table at 8 pm. Both the service and food was excellent and at no time did we feel hurried . They were very patient as I practised my Italian whenever I could . Most definitely... More

The only word to explain this is small little restaurant but excellent food and great staff definitely will be going back again And would leave a little room for pudding and try the ice cream the best I've ever had

My wife and I returned to Poole to meet up with our daughter before I dropped them both off at a damp Glastonbury the next day. We have been living in Jersey for nearly 4 years and have been spoiled by the number of restaurants we have to choose from. "Do you fancy Italian tonight" my daughter asked, and the... More

This restaurant certainly did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in we had a warm friendly welcome, which continued throughout. Great menu, every dish presented well and tasted amazing. Certainly can't ignore the deserts. Good wine too. We just loved this authentic Italian restaurant. Thank you Marcello and your team. We will certainly visit again when we are next... More
