I went to an Italian restaurant in a great location on Poole Quay on Sunday for a bit of lunch. Italian Gossip is the name of the restaurant and it may be familiar to locals as they also used to have a restaurant by the same name in Canford Cliffs.
There was seven of us in total including our 3 children and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner, Alex right from the start. Gossip is a genuine Italian restaurant which Alex was keen to point out, as there are many Italian restaurants in Bournemouth and some in Poole that are not run by Italians and have Italian chefs.
All of the staff at Gossip are Italian so it adds to the atmosphere and you can of course then expect genuine Italian cuisine.
The restaurant is in Dolphin Quays, a fairly new residential development with shops and restaurants underneath. You can expect some great views as the restaurant has a glass front looking over Poole Quay and Brownsea Island.
Everyone enjoyed their food including my children whom they did smaller portions off the adult menu for. They were flexible with regards to the children and in all honesty I think they would have made pretty much whatever the children wanted as long as it wasn’t to far off the menu.
Price wise it is not the cheapest Italian restaurant you will visit but you do get good food, great views and friendly service, all of which I personally value.
If your in the area give them a try and have a walk down the quay after dinner – very romantic! Let us know what you thought of Gossip if you go by writing comments below.
