“Grown up restaurant on Utila”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Ate dinner here just after Christmas. Although this is an Italian restaurant the staff on the night I ate there was french. The menu board advertised mojitos, but these were not available. The restaurant also ran out of one of the red wines available by the glass. However, waitress did undertake a yeoman effort to make it up to us.
We had kingfish with capers and a pasta dish with black olives. Both were very good, especially the kingfish - which should be eaten whenever you get a chance on Utila.
The atmosphere at La Piccola is a lot more grown up than many of the other restaurants on Utila, this could be due to this being a restaurant as opposed to a sea side bar.
Worth a visit.

Everything was just great, service and food, great bread, best place to eat on the island! Pasta, meat and fish that was ordered were all great.

“Good food, if you want to treat yourself”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We enjoyed the ambiance and balcony view...food was decent, but on the more expensive side of the options available....so consider it if you want to treat yourself, or price is not a factor for you!

“Good food, ok service”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The first time we went the food was awesome, the best fish I'd had on the island so far. The second time, the food wasn't as good and the staff although overworked due to how busy it was were very rude, short tempered and very uninformative. Seems a bit inconsistent.
