Visited during Raya 2019 and boy were we in for a surprise! The place was super packed and the prices have increased over the years. Lucky was still great. I would highly recommend their ravioli because we hardly get fresh ones back in KL.

We went there for dinner and shared salad, two garlic breads and the vegetarian pizza. This was very good for three people. I highly recommend the homemade lemonade. It was actually freshly made with real lemons not from syrup! Very friendly service and we could...even take away food for our friend who stayed behind in the hostel.More

Fantastic selection of Italian dishes and exceptionally attentive, professional and kind staff. Went for lunch and tried their parmigiana as a starter and spinach ravioli. Both were delicious! The icing on the cake was freshly grated parmesan. My favourite Italian in Borneo - will definitely...be back.More

One of the best pizzas we have ever had, and we’ve eaten a lot. So good we ate here three days in a row. The ravioli was exceptional and all 3 different salads we tried were fresh and tasty. The homemade lemonade was refreshing. The...tiramisu was fabulous. The restaurant is super clean and the staff were friendly and efficient even though they were extremely busy.More

After living in Kota Kinabalu for two years, I was a frequent customer in Little Italy. Now I came back for holiday and I was looking forward to dining at Little Italy again but I was very very dissapointed. First of all, they don't serve...beer anymore. Second, pizza was tasteless. My wife ordered their most expensive steak which itself was OK (not wow) but the side veggies were swimming in oil and covered with thick mayonese. Sorry to say this but I won't be back and I'll be travelling for work to KK next month again.More

A lovely place to have dinner, great atmosphere, very busy, lots of locals eat there, tasty food. We all had pizza & it was nice, we enjoyed it. If you want to sit inside, I strongly suggest you book. Just be aware that they no...longer serve alcohol, so be beer with your pizza or wine with your pasta 😕More

This was an unexpectedly good quality restaurant of its kind in KK. The food is tasty, the pricing reasonable and the ambience warm. This is a restaurant that both locals and tourists go to. Most certainly worth many repeat visits.
