La Piccola was my favorite restaurant several years ago. The owner back then- Jean I believe his name was- was delightful and would talk with guests if they wanted or leave them alone as they chose. Since that time I'm told he left the island and a Honduran family bought the name. They relocated over the bridge/past the lighthouse. The... More

Evidently in the old location this place was wonderful. No more. I was just chased out of the restaurant with the cook threatening to call immigration on me (though I'm here visiting quite legally) because my friends and I had the gall to complain about the gross food that took over an HOUR to come. I still can't believe that... More

We stayed close by to the restaurants new location so we actually were able to eat here on two occasions. The space really is nice-open air seating with some great views of the bay. The food is really pretty good as well. I am a foodie and I have some high standards and I can appreciate what these folks are... More

We went in a big group and they were very accommodating. The food was really nice, I had a pizza, one of the girls had the fillet mignon and she said it melted in her mouth. However the tax on alcohol was 18% and the food was 15% so everything was a lot more expensive than we anticipated. Not a... More

Had the special spaghetti con fruti di mare. It was pretty good with a salad at only 190 Lps. Decent wine, chilled and nice laid back atmosphere. Good view from the porch, nice service. I only eat pasta once a week, so this fit the bill for me. Enjoy the company of geckos and hummingbirds.

I am very confused by this listing on Trip Advisor. The photo on the listing, posted by management, of the tables with white tablecloths, folded white napkins, chandeliers, etc. is very confusing. This is NOT a photo of the restaurant where we ate. I have no idea what it is a photo of but where we ate looked NOTHING like... More

Good food. Nice quiet atmosphere. Up a small flight of stairs from street level. Everything is pretty cheap on Utila.
