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

Great pizzas and salad, which really tasted like Italy, with fresh herbs and lots of garlic. Service was a little disappointing and not really up to the price - but that's not a reason not to come here and get a dose of Italian food.

I tried to sleep without aircon and the window open, but had to give up due the dogs barking outside. Breakfast is served, and it's ok. There is restaurant serving European... More

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

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.
