Had a lovely dinner here during our visit to Lyme Regis last week. The look and feel is a little ''American Diner' but the food is fresh and delicious and the service friendly and attentive.

Italia Lyme Regis This place was so good, food, service and clean could not fault it. A really enjoyable evening with polite and hardworking staff. Cleaned everything down once clients finished their meal. The best I have come across and very Covid conscious. Polish Lady...in charge of service. Top marks.More

A simple, no-fuss Italian! Friendly service, yummy food. I had a pizza, fully loaded with veggies and prosciutto, and my husband had lasagne. Worth a visit.

Attentive and friendly service with a limited but good and well priced drinks list. Bruschetta and Sicilian pizzas were excellent, light crispy base with lots of toppings. Would return.

Attentive and friendly service is a good start when eating out. This Italian was operating under the strict Corona Virus 🦠 rules so maybe a little different at different times. I have given my review 3* because the food was of a manufactured reheated from...frozen variety with prices that were more suitable to made-from-fresh ingredients. Not bad, just not good or worth the money. We have made better ourselves at home.More

First impressions were good - warm greeting, pleasant surroundings (if a little cold with door open all night), compact menu and good wine list. Always believe a compact menu gives the chef every chance to excel at his job as less to concentrate on. Starters...were excellent - good tastes and very fresh but, have to say, more an assembly job than cooking. Wine was excellent. The mains were very disappointing and felt, rightly or wrongly, like another assembly job? The pasta was cooked ok but the accompaniments were bottled and heated - bottled passata rather than their own cooked tomato sauce (how much trouble is that) to which was added frozen (or bottled) mussels and prawns. Expected fresher seafood in this location and more rounded tomato sauce and, for what it was, cheaper! Wine was excellent and we felt very comfortable but the mains were very disappointing...maybe stick to pizza which look good but we do not really like.....More

We are regular visitors to Lyme and tonight we decided we needed pizza but where to order from? We chose to order from the restaurant closest to where we are staying and so glad we did. Our order arrived earlier than expected and was really...hot. The pizza’s were both voted a big success and the Lasagne was lovely with a side order of the garlic and rosemary potatoes and Mediterranean vegetables. House vote means we will be ordering again from here on our final night in Lyme.More

This was our first visit to Italia & we were not disappointed. We both had Pizza & it was freshly made & delicious. As were the desserts & bottle of fizz to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The staff were attentive with out being intrusive. A...great place to eat & I must say the chairs were very, very comfortable. We shall return.More

The restaurant was laid out to comply with the current regulations, but this did not effect the service offered. The food was very good and staff polite, booking was essential.

Delicious meal! The vegetarian antipasti starter was beautifully presented with different cheeses, olives, breads and salad; it was delicious and a huge portion! Our mains of lasagna and mushroom tagliatelle was also very flavoursome and hugely tasty. I would recommend Italian. The staff were friendly...and helpful too.More
