Today's girl's afternoon out was was a success since we chose to stop at Little Italy for the first time. Why hadn't any of us been here before?! We received service with a smile and felt welcome indeed. Although I called ahead, we did not need a reservation for a Saturday afternoon. Since the chalkboard menu uses mostly Italian labels...

It's such a delight to run across a local eatery with GREAT food and wonderful staff! The food will make you think you're in Italy...it's out of this world! The lunch specials are scrumptious, and the dinners are an experience you simply should not miss!!

There were 18 of us who made the 35 min trip from The Villages to Inverness where we were in for the treat of our lives. Not only was the owner pure entertainment (very witty) but he and his staff presented us with some of the most delectable food we have eaten since moving to The Villages. The dinner concept... More

Had lunch here June 5th. The food was good. It's a counter style place at lunchtime. You order your food at the counter and then they bring it out to you. The special on the board said: "Fantastico". That's it, no description. So I asked the girl behind the counter: "What's the Fantastico?" She glared at me, and then muttered:... More

I preordered food for 20 people: hoagies, canolis, italian cookies and anti pasta. My bill was almost $300. The hoagies averaged between $8.70 and $12.00 each. The sandwiches had 2 pieces each of cheese and meat, the cookies were so hard and tasted so terrible even the kids wouldn't eat them. the anti pasta had about a half pound of... More

This place is small. But the atmosphere is still great. The food is so filling. And so delicious. I stopped here for a quick lunch with my friend. We came out and could hardly move due to being so full up. Good value for money.

Deli by day, exquisite dining by night. We dined in for the special menu dinner, which is a multiple course, fixed menu dinner that includes wine and entertainment. The owners and family are hilarious, genuine people that support the community and are truly passionate about food. What a great place to have here in Inverness!

This was our first visit and were very surprised it really is something different. On Friday night and Saturday nights they present a three course and a seven course meal reservations are required. When we made our reservations we had told him that we wanted the three-course meal however when we got there they start talking about the meal we... More
