Description: Little Italy Restaurant opened its door to the community of Tonga in 1996 in a beautiful traditional Tongan Fale(House). However, now with a 22 rooms hotel attached to the restaurant, walking distance from the original location. For over a decade, Little Italy Restaurant has prided itself as one of Tonga's finer restaurants, offers authentic Italian food with a variety of pizzas handmade and baked in the traditional Italian way. There are many different types of pastas available, which are cooked to perfection and complemented with a sauce of your choice. The Italian wine selection is the best you can get here in Tonga, in addition our Chef has chosen and created some specialties with beef fillet steak, lobster, fish and poultry. We try our best to accommodate any dietary requests or restrictions whenever possible. Restaurant is open 6 days a week for breakfast and dinner. Sunday we are closed to the public, but open for dinner to all of our house guests exclusively. Come visit us today, whether for a a Birthday Party, Anniversary, Graduation or just a special event to get intimate with a few good friends or family. The combination of good food, an Italian selection of superb wines and a warm and inviting atmosphere means you can't possibly be anywhere else but at Little Italy Restaurant. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.

“Italy in Tonga”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This place was gorgeous, good location right next to the beach. We had pizza which was very large - could share the medium between two of us. Had a great cocktail too.

“you'd love it...”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

everything is great about this place - the food, the people, the atmosphere....you just have to try it. You can't be in Tonga and not eat here.

“Yum pizza”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Yum pizza and a good place for a large group of people to go for dinner. The bar was happy for everyone to pay for their own drinks, and they made nice milkshakes too. Italian food as expected.

“Great pizzas”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Ate at this restaurant on a number of occasions. The highlight is definitely their pizzas. You can get a 45 cm pizza that feeds a whole family. The rest of the food is pretty average, I tried a tuna steak one night (huge!) but they had overcooked it which was a real shame. They are not the only restaurant in Tonga to overcook their fish, maybe it is a Tongan thing?? I also found the prices to be a little too high, especially for simple pasta dishes. The service was brilliant but on a couple of occasions items on the menu were not available e.g. fruit cocktails. The ocean view is superb and the restaurant set up is inviting.
