This is a very nice hotel with good views, either over houses and yards or over the ocean. It is located close to the Royal Palace and several restaurants and about a 20 minute walk into town. The room was a good size as was the bathroom, and both were cleaned daily by friendly staff. Restaurant and reception are on... More

This place is very popular with locals, who seem to mostly come for take-outs. The prices are reasonable, and the location is good. The food isn't mindblowing, but it is not bad either.

We stayed just up the road andbeing too tired to go far it suited us to have a light takeaway meal. This was a shredded chicken pizza and a Caprese salad. I realised when I started eating that I should have given the pizza a boost in heat as it was cold and tasteless. The salad was fine. The place... More

Sloppy service at times and kitchen gets overwhelmed if restaurant is full. House wines are dreadful.

OK, so our check in was late but we weren't impressed by our reception. We had to carry our own suitcases up a flight of stairs. Our room was adequate. It did have an ocean view which was nice.... there was a traditional fish trap in the lagoon out front which was interesting + some fishing pigs. Our first nights... More

Description
Little Italy Restaurant opened its door to the community of Tonga in 1996 in a beautiful traditional Tongan Fale(House). However, now with a 22 rooms hotel attached to the restaurant, walking distance from the original location. For over a decade, Little Italy Restaurant has prided itself as one of Tonga's finer restaurants, offers authentic Italian food with a variety of pizzas handmade and baked in the traditional Italian way. There are many different types of pastas available, which are cooked to perfection and complemented with a sauce of your choice. The Italian wine selection is the best you can get here in Tonga, in addition our Chef has chosen and created some specialties with beef fillet steak, lobster, fish and poultry. We try our best to accommodate any dietary requests or restrictions whenever possible. Restaurant is open 6 days a week for breakfast and dinner. Sunday we are closed to the public, but open for dinner to all of our house guests exclusively. Come visit us today, whether for a a Birthday Party, Anniversary, Graduation or just a special event to get intimate with a few good friends or family. The combination of good food, an Italian selection of superb wines and a warm and inviting atmosphere means you can't possibly be anywhere else but at Little Italy Restaurant. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.
