I was not aware of Ristorante Il Piccolo Mondo until last weekend when a friend treated us to a great meal in a fantastic setting. The restaurant is in the old village school and the conversion has been well thought out. The food was excellent and there are plenty of vegetarian choices, even for fussy veggies like me as you...

We have been dining on Elio's fantastic Italian cuisine for more years than I can remember at all the various restaurants he has owned in East Anglia. I was there this week with 4 dear friends who had driven from Northamptonshire because they know their meal will always be fabulous. We had Garlic prawns to start followed by fillet steak... More

Rumours abound locally that you can't get a table here but lunchtimes are easier and well worth it; there are only just over 40 covers and they don't double-book tables, so it's yours for the duration and no surrendering it part way through. Italian cooking to a high standard and service which is impeccable. The décor couldn't be simpler. Car... More

My family and I dined here for my grandparents anniversary (gift from my parents to them) and it was outstanding. My parents, having been here previously got talking to the lovely owners of this beautiful little Italian restaurant and they explained that they allow one table per customer per night so that once you have booked this table, it its...

This was our first visit in the evening to this popular venue. We had tried several times to book a weekend evening meal but the restaurant is booked months in advance. They do operate a waiting list but we do not like last minute bookings ( having a phone call on the day for that night). So, we opted for... More

Well, we have been trying to get a table here for months. Every time I have rung up we have not been able to get a table anywhere near the date we wanted, so I decided to just take the first Saturday available, which happened to be 4 months away! I am so glad I did. What a wonderful night... More
