Wow, who knew what was hiding in sleepy Inverness, Florida!

We have talked about going here for years and now we have finally gone and already have a reservation for next month. This place is unbelievable.

I was pleasantly surprised by the tasty, yet still light for lunch. Nice soups and salads. Plus the bakery section is top notch with to-die-for cannolis.

Best Italian Sub you'll find. Relaxed, casual atmosphere; terrific food; friendly service; reasonably priced. Makes a great endpoint for the bike trail.

The advertised lunch menu looked amazing but we were there for a 7 course Italian dinner. The food was phenomenal and the owner very entertaining. Reservations required but well worth it. If ever in the area again, I would return. Hoping to convince our travel party to stop for sandwiches on our way out of town. Should be an easy... More

We had lunch this week at Little Italy. It calls itself a deli. But it is more than that. Lunch, as usual, was very good. My wife did not want the combo special panini, so Rosario made the other half of mine into a salad for her. It is like home, except that they bake the bread. On Friday and... More

Excellent food, and great atmosphere for lunch or dinner (weekends). Be sure to make reservations well in advance for dinner, they fill up. Plan to be there a while, it's an event that you'll want to enjoy every minute of.

Going to Inverness, FL means two things for us. Riding the Withlacoochee State Trail and lunch at Little Italy. Riding the trail was the reason to be in Inverness, until we found Little Italy. Never a question where we will have lunch anymore. So many mouth watering meats and cheeses in the display cases. And the Pastries!!! Donna Antipasto has... More
