Little Italy was not far from my B&B and I had read about it on Trip Advisor. There was lots of room, it was warm, and the service attentive and friendly. The house red was enjoyable and my pasta and meatballs hit the spot. I would go back again.

Great atmosphere, helpful staff and wonderful food.The waiter was advised of my wife's food allergy and a meal was produced which she really enjoyed. Nothing was too much trouble.

Compact Italian in the town centre. Food was fine (good for Inverness), but the service could do with some work - for example, I expect the specials at least to be pointed out, to be offered rather than have to ask for parmesan, not to be bumped every time a waiter passes my chair etc. Bit let down.

Popped in for mid week dinner. We booked but it's early enough in the season to walk in. Shared mushroom starter and had pizza and pasta for our mains. Excellent as always. Service attentive. What's not to love

We visited on a Saturday night without a reservation, the waiters managed to find us a table, despite being fully booked and very busy. The service was attentive and friendly, the food arrived quickly and was delicious, possibly one of the best pizzas i've had in the UK. Throughout our meal, the restaurant was packed and they were constantly turning... More
