Fantastic little Italian restaurant. Really recommended. Try the chefs special. Awesome and the liquor wow what a treat.
The waiters were absolutely very kind. But there was a misunderstanding. Because only one of us had ordered brushetta which appeared to have to be eaten for the main meal, and this person was eating very slowly because the brushetta was quite crusty, we kept waiting for the main meal for maybe one hour. The person who was eating felt awkward because she was the only one eating and we were given a place in the middle of the restaurant close to the bar, so she felt as if everyone was watching her. Also, I misunderstood the meal I ordered because I thought it was vegetarian and it turned out that there was meat in it. I read the ingredients and the ingredients that were mentioned on the menu were all vegetarian. It turned out that from the Italian name of the dishone could have known that it was not vegetarian and that from a V you could know if a dish was vegetarian or not. It was a bit confusing and we came in a bit tired so i just concluded from the ingredients that it was vegetarian and it did not occur to me to go looking for a letter V. Anyhow, the dish was taken off the bill which was very kind. The restauarnt seemed very clean and I liked the Italian pictures on the wall, which really contribured to the atmosphere. I would definitely like to come back.
Authentic Italian cuisine... clean and elegantly presented restaurant, with crisp white linen tablecloths, and romantic candles flickering on each table. Friendly, smiling staff, patient and helpful with menu choices. A pizza order was met with a cutlery change, to ensure a pizza knife for good cutting-slicing. Rustic pizza, just like in Italy (no added sugar like at other “chain” restaurants), with generous toppings (more generous than other “chain” pizza restaurants). Good quality Italian wine, and the owner-manager Leonardo made time to have a brief chat with the diners to make sure everything was satisfactory. If my only gripe was the stones missing from the olives, then what else can I say? For “real” authentic Italian food, sensibly priced, in a warm, friendly restaurant, look no further!
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.
This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and I was not disappointed; it was a first time for my companion and he was very impressed. The service was faultless...all the staff were very welcoming, lovely smiles, and friendly throughout our visit. The food and wine was exactly as we hoped....and plentiful! We will definitely be returning.
We've been to the restaurant a number of times and have always found the staff pleasant and helpful the food has always been excellent. We were delighted on this last occasion for their help and courtesy in making my wife's 70th birthday special. If you've not been then then I highly recommend a visit Derrick Hancock
I visited little Italy at the weekend and ordered lobster linguine which was absolutely delicious. My husband had lamb cutlets and wasn’t as happy with his choice. We also had cocktails and deserts that were very nice, although I did feel the cocktails could be a little cheaper at £9 each. Over all staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was nice. I would definitely return.
