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.

“nice stay”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

we stayed in the hotel and it was good. The restaurant was nice with decent Italian food. As we are vegetarian you have not many options but here it was fine. The people who work here are very helpful and kind. Overall we had a pleasant stay

“Good Italian food”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is an attractive restaurant with a great sea aspect. Pizzas are pretty good but have too much bland cheese for my liking and the toppings could be better quality. But this is Tonga, I’ve certainly had worse, and if you’re craving pizza, this is the place. The mains, however, are much better and prove they really can cook – I had beautiful mahi mahi steaks with good sides here. The food takes a while to arrive but servings are big and the good food is matched by friendly service. Pricey, but not the most expensive in town.

“Goooood pizza”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

First I was shocked that there was a pizzeria in Tonga, and then I was shocked at how good it was! Not just for the island, but for any pizza.

It was nice to have a break from seafood and curry and go for Italian.

“Fantastic service and quality food...”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had a lovely dinner here on New Years Eve. Brought a group here and had a gorgeous seat outside. The food was quality, but the service was what made the experience so amazing. We were looked after very well... thank you for that!
