Places to Eat in Bournemouth: La Piccola Italia

I was very lucky to be invited out with the Bournemouth Bloggers to have a Bottomless Prosecco Brunch with all things Italian food at La Piccola in Bournemouth! Firstly, how amazing that I was fortunate to go to a blogger event but also that it is about Italian cuisine!

The company was amazing, great bunch of girls working towards their blog alongside work and family life and of course the food was INSANE! Also was able to practice a bit of my Italian...learning is working!

It is great to visit local independent businesses and support them, especially with the launches of big brands and franchises. I must say, I was thoroughly impressed with the authenticity of the restaurant, staff and food. So, if you are in Bournemouth and love Italian food just keep reading.

Situated in the heart of Bournemouth and open since 1981, this cute establishment offers authentic Italian cuisine at great prices. They offer everything from traditional pizzas alongside boards of different foods including bresaola and goats cheese (my personal favourite). As if it wasn’t good enough, they do takeaway and catering events -- this is one of the reasons why I recommend this as places to eat in Bournemouth.

We were very lucky to have the Bottomless Prosecco Brunch - yes this really happened! Every Saturday from 12 noon to 5pm, for 90 minutes for a price of £25 per person you can indulge in italian food and prosecco. You can order 1 Pizzette, 2 Salumi or Cheeses from the Charcuterie Section OR 2 Cicchetti and 1 glass of prosecco at a time. Enough talking.. Just look at the photos!!

Now onto the fun part! The food!!! Small plates included Bruschetta, fried Tortellini, Mussels and Gnocchi! Pizza’s included the traditional Margherita, Napoletana and Diavola. Warning...Diavola had a little bit of spice, but even as a non-spice fan I loved it! I absolutely loved the pizza, for me the meat and cheese boards were AMAZING. After living in Spain for a year, I really appreciate the different types of ham and this was a dream for me. There was Pancetta, Parma Ham and Speck to name a few.

It is known to many that I enjoy to learn languages, so I got to test out a few skills and words on one of the waiters. The staff in general were soooo lovely and sweet, so attentive and caring. My Italian studies seem to work and it is great to be able to meet people from different countries and to experience different cultures. If I can’t go to Italy, then you will find me in Italian restaurants! This is why this is some of the best places to eat in Bournemouth.

I have been to many restaurants when I went to Italy, and I am not just saying this but when I walked into La Piccola, it was like being back in Italy.

The food, the food and the food. Is there any more reason? Oh yeah, the staff, decor and the food. Can you tell that I am a foodie??

If you don’t fancy a Bottomless Brunch or just want to have a family meal out, there are plenty of other chances to enjoy the food. Of course they have a lunch, mains and kids menu so that it is inclusive for everyone. THERE IS MORE…..Mondays they have the 4Ps...any pizza or paste with a glass of prosecco or peroni for only £10. Thursdays if you buy any Charcuterie board you get two free glasses of house wine. Friday Festa is most likely my favourite with 2 for 1 deals on cocktails and prosecco ALL night!!


I really want to thank Bournemouth Bloggers for inviting me to the event and allowing me to experience this amazing place. Thank you also to La Piccola Italia for hosting us and providing with the most amazing food and service. Hoping to come back soon, may have to book a table for my graduation meal!

If you are in Bournemouth, make sure to visit La Piccola Italia because you are in for a treat! Here are all the details for them!
