About Little Italy - Shirley

Go and join the family at Little Italy, a proper Italian restaurant that does Italian dining the right way. This place is proudly independent and does more than its bit when it comes to supporting the local suppliers of Solihull and, more specifically, Shirley. Nestled on Stratford Road, not far from Shirley Park, Little Italy makes a wonderful pit stop for lunch or for a long and relaxed meal in the evening. Not the case at some Italian restaurants, Little Italy opts for quality over quantity, hence the menu will not overwhelm. Just expect pleasing pizzas and pasta plates as well as prime meats and seafood. Marvellous.

We had a wonderful evening, it was a friends birthday and my husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better place. The atmosphere, the food and the pleasant staff were all tip top. We have been to Little Italy before and have never come away feeling disappointed and this time it was even better, we will be going there again. Our friends who have not been there before have said they will also be returning quite soon. Many thanks to the staff for making it such an enjoyable night.

Great service, great food. It was a Saturday Evening. There were 14 of us and even though the restaurant was busy we did not have to wait long for any of our courses. The staff were all very friendly, professional and helpful. Would highly recomrecommend.
