More good food than a person can eat in one sitting........

When our state contract was ending in this city, an appropriate dinner to celebrate needed a special place: Little Italy. Their homemade bread is to die for, and their pasta dishes more than any giant could eat at one time. The best part of Little Italy is the atmosphere. Several large tables... read more

OK, I'm biased, grew up in NY in a Sicilian neighborhood. However, the wait staff was so concerned about getting water to new guests who waited too long for a table they had to be reminded 4 times to let us pay to leave- the 4th time they had to be chased down and admitted they forgot. You should never... More

This is a wonderful restaurant for a quiet dinner with friends or a romantic dinner for two in one of the private alcoves. The food is great, especially the freshly baked bread. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful. Weekend nights there is live light background music from the steel guitar. You can actually carry on a conversation without... More

Driving through Texas, stopped here for a really good dinner. Classic middle America-style Italian. Very good shrimp scampi, with big fresh shrimp. Good ravioli, minestrone, bread, decent house wine. Plus they had really good live classical guitar during dinner! We will definitely stop again.

I ate here with my family yesterday and I was extremely satisfied, not only with the food but with the wait staff as well! The restaurant is dark inside, but it is definitely a place I would like to go on a date night with my significant other soon!

Food is pretty good, not great but ok. The service lacks when crowded. Maybe it's a staffing problem or training. Give it a try when ya don't wanna fight bigger crowds at Olive Garden

Have been going to Little Italy since they opened. Love the quiet atmosphere. You can actually have a conversation with your date or party of frients. Food is amazing. My favorite is any of the eggplant dishes. My husband loves the lasagna.

I don't know how well I can attribute this to authentic Italian food, as I have never been to Italy...but this is how I imagine true Italian food to taste. The atmosphere is beautiful. They have booths that can be semi-private because they have folding screens that can be pulled in front to close you off in your own little... More

I am originally from Abilene and this place was quite the find. Service is ok and the ambiance is better. The pasta is GREAT and the bread with oil is quite good. I definitely recommend the Chicken Piccatta. The veal parmigiana is a flat out miss and tastes like it might have previously been frozen (probably just the veal, not... More
