Located way from the hustle and bustle of the city, this eating place at Ascot shopping mall is the ideal place to dine.

The owner will be pleased to direct your taste buds to what is available that day. The quality is excellent and some of the best Italian I have had in 35 yrs of Zimbabwe dining. We intended to return the next evening but unfortunately couldn't make it. Easy to find in a modern shopping mall and ( Ascot Centre )... More

Piccola Roma is a gem, and if you have a chance to go while in Bulawayo I highly recommend it. Unassumingly tucked into a shopping center, it would be easy to miss, especially at night when everything else in the center except for a bar is closed, but it's well worth seeking out.

This place unfortunately doesn't have a charming location, it's based inside a big mall in a small corner. But the inside of the restaurant is unique and the owner who is Italian but has lived in Africa forever is very charming and flexible. We came just when the kitchen had closed (many restaurant kitchens close early in Bulawayo), but this... More

I was looking for a restaurant next to the hotel and just found Piccola Roma. From outside it doesn't raise attention but Claudio is very kind, has a lot to tell and my prawns and the wine were great. He made my evening.

Excellent food and the owner is very interactive. All the meals are prepared fresh so you must be prepared to wait. The menu can be limited if you visit the restaurant regularly.

Great place for Italian food in Bulawayo. The owner is very friendly, but makes great suggestions for what you might like on the menu. All the food is good, although can be expensive -- but makes a lovely treat.
