Me and my family love Little Italy in Bishopdale. The restaurant itself is attached to a pub, the food is always fresh and the girls who work there always make you feel welcome. I myself will continue to eat there on a regular basis.

We have been twice before so expected similar service and menu, so didn't check the online menu. Big mistake. It is no longer really a restaurant, but a pub meal outlet, since it adjoins a pub. There is no waitress service other than bringing the...More

We used to love the gourmet pizzas at Little Italy. Great range of fantastic tasting pizzas. But we were just there a few days ago and my goodness, what a change! The pizza we had had a super thin crust and looked and tasted recycled...More
