Just had a fantastic meal as part of a couple of days away in Poole and Sandbanks. We found Italian Diva in the Poole Quays area. Great atmosphere, attentive and friendly staff but above all - great food. Fantastic steak, lovely seafood pasta with homemade tiramisu to follow. Thoroughly enjoyed it - we'll be back!

I've just finished my dessert at Italian Diva and wow! I popped in tonight after hearing about the recent refurbishments by Marcello the owner/ head chef. First impression - nicely done! Very pleasant and comfortable surroundings with gentle Italian music. The waiter greeted me with enthusiasm and was always to hand when needed. His recommendation of the Chef's Special (Tagliatelle... More

This restaurant closed in the New Year for a refurb. It was lovely as it was, but Now it's even better. It's still a cosy 22 - 28 cover? Restaurant. Marcello owner / chef / all round, lovely guy, didn't disappoint. The food served was excellent, and this is somewhere you don't have to find an excuse to come back... More

Atmosphere was intimate and friendly with real Italian staff. Food was lovely, as was the wine, and the costs were very reasonable. If we lived in the area we would make it one of our regulars! Would recommend to anyone.

A small intimate restaurant that serves wonderful food. I do not eat meat so my husband checked before we booked to see what was available & the chef said that given a few days notice he would make whatever I fancied. I decided to try what was on the menu first & was not disappointed. Unlike me my husband does... More

Most welcoming, we were lucky to get a table for two, as we had just dropped by on spec, without having booked. The staff were charming, attentive, and showed real knowledge of the menu, the chef taking the trouble to come to the table to discuss the steak. Excellent food, cooked to perfection. Thoroughly recommended, but do book!

This lovely little restaurant has undergone some refurbishment, and WOW! Such a delight to enjoy fab food in a cool, glamorous setting with the feel of a chic London restaurant. Amazing food as always, and I'm told by the owner/chef that a new menu is currently being created as we speak! As always a warm Italian welcome awaits! There's certainly... More

Went along to this family run restaurant with my cousins this evening. We had a lovely relaxing time and the food was excellent. My favourite was the calamari starter cooked to perfection. We didn't feel rushed and our food was cooked fresh to order.
