With talented chef patron Marcello Calipa at the helm, Italian Diva serves classic Italian dishes using fresh ingredients sourced locally and from around Italy. Italian Diva takes you on a journey into the flavours of Italy, guided by Marcello's passion for food and kissed by his unique touch.

"Passion is everything, there is no twist. At Italian Diva you get classic Italian cooking"

The exquisite and timeless elegance of Italian Diva with its sensual dark exotic vibe has created a design statement in the historic Old Town of Poole. Just steps away from Poole Quay, Italian Diva is a lush oasis, a perfect place for a relaxed lunch or elegant dinner.

I am passionate about my ingredients and I use only the best of the best which I choose from all that Italy has to offer. Ricotta from Naples, Guanciale from Rome and Mozzarella from Naples The finest Olive Oil which I buy from Rome enriches every dish. My steaks are the best you will find in Dorset, my chicken is corn fed, my pizzas are made using the finest flour worked lovingly into a dough and my desserts are all homemade with Italian love.

IN MARCELLO'S WORDS

"I believe in using fresh ingredients to make traditional Italian food. This is what my family have done for generations.

It is important to buy the best ingredients, and cook using traditional Italian methods in order to reinterpret a dish whilst keeping its roots and integrity."
