The Owner of this establishment made me Pasta Primavera, an item not on the menu and almost impossible to find eating. Everything else on the menu was great too, but that personal service put this little Italian dining retreat over the top!

I had read good thing about Little Italy but came away disappointed. The decor of the restaurant should have been a hint. It is a hodge lodge of tables, seating arrangements and decorations. I have had excellent meals at restaurants that weren't well decorated and arranged so that doesn't make or break my first impression. I had an excellent glass... More

After (too) many visits to this resto, I find myself asking why I return here. My sad answer is just habit, and its central location and adequate space for our group that has met here frequently. The ambience is okay, the service the same. The meals I have had are just calories-- certainly edible, but memorable only in wanting to... More

It has a very unassuming exterior, and we were a little hesitant. However, the service was wonderful, and the food delicious. Lots of vegetarian choices. Would like to see a little vegan choice added by having no cheese, but I am not unhappy. Waitress was very helpful with letting us make changes.

Little Italy has really good pizza on top the cheese and topping are great, nice and gooey, but the crust is undercooked it needs to be crisper, Pizza crust should not be soggy and that is my only complaint.

This is one of my favorite places. I have eaten many different dishes here and usually I am not disappointed. The fresh bread and olive oil/fresh tomato blend are a must-have. I usually order the Baked Eggplant. Don't expect a lot from the salads and antipasto. They will also allow you to make substitutions and additions. Weather permitting, outside dining... More

Many great menu items. The most delicious garlic rolls and oil mix ever! The owners and staff are always VERY friendly and accomodating. My fav are the calzones, pizzas and meatballs...be hungry!! Prices are comparable to the "big box" Italian restuarants. Check them out if you are willing to go locally.

Back in the day in the 90's this was a really good authentic Italian restaurant. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. I meet a group of friends once a month and we went to Little Italy about 3 months ago. I ordered the chicken marsala; no way did this dish even resemble anything resembling a marsala dish. I couldn't... More
