This is a place we dine at regularly and I can say with certainty that it is the best pizza in all of Nuku'alofa. The prices are high but the ingredients are quality and the dough is hearty. We always get a family size pizza...More

Ate here one night during a 3 week stint in Tonga and was one of the best we went to, certainly in terms of service. Quite pricey in terms of Tongan prices but the portions are extremely generous. Tiramisu is a winner too.

Always loved the food here. So I probably had 90% of my food sent or picked up from here. Their staff here are pretty friendly once they warm up to you.

The offerings were promising but did not fulfill expectations. The pork chops were from a pig that had extensive exercise making them tasty but tough. Outside included biting insects and very loud neighbours

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.
