A friend in Australia suggested Little Italy is a must when here.Only a block & a bit from the Hyatt, this spacious & clean attack on the senses is truly a must do.Staff such as Winston will make your dining experience so much more than just eating. We were lucky enough to meet Mr Ceresa on the first night &... More

We were seated quickly and it was a busy night. We ordered salad which came first, my boyfriend ordered the 3 types of ravioli and I ordered pasta Alfredo which was all to die for!

I am not even trying to exxagerate but their pastas are " to die for". Everything was so fresh and even when it was at a fullhouse, their service was so fast, I feel sorry for the kitchen. Pizzas were amazing and got to try their speciality, the squid pasta. The amount of seafood they serve in the pasta, was... More

Good street appeal! Lots of staff and fairly friendly. Went for an early lunch. Food came quickly. Ordered pasta and pizza. All tasted fresh and served hot. Free internet. Prices are a bit high but also in a touristy area. Would recommend for an Italian fix!

Food a little bit pricy but worth trying. Their tiramisu and cuppucino is highly recommended. Pizza is so so only, may be perhaps I am not hungry. But the restaurant offer to make 1/2 + 1/2 pizza at the same price for different flavours.

We stayed in the Capital Hotel right next door and received a voucher for this restaurant. We were looking for good straightforward western style food and got exactly that. Service was also very good. Recommend to other travellers.

We've ordered their house specialities since it was our first time there. Both Zuppa Di Mare with add on pasta and Lasagne tasted good. Recommended if you wanna have some Italian food in Sabah.
