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

Went to Little Italy again the other day and it seems to get better each time. Eating outside in the large courtyard is especially nice in the spring and fall. Wait staff is out quickly with bread and butter. They have a happy hour special of buy one glass of wine, get the second at half-price. BUT...You can't order two... More

Even though Olive Garden was across the street from our hotel, we wanted to eat at a local restaurant and chose Little Italy which was only a 4-minute drive away. It was located next to a Winn-Dixie on Magnolia street. Even though there were cute candle-lit tables outside in the courtyard, it was a little chilly and we sat inside... More

In the quest to support local businesses, I dined at Little Italy for the first time in quite awhile. I just kind of forgot about it. The ambience is cozy and colorful, and while it was just a bit too cool to choose an outside table, the courtyard was set up nicely for anyone who decided on the outdoor tables.... More

Went with my family of four on a Thursday night to celebrate my husbands birthday! Wanted to try something different where we had never been. Was a quant atmosphere, nice courtyard upon walking in. Inside reminded me of places I would go as a kid. Very authentic. Had good service and very good pinot grigio. Enjoyed the complimentary bread and... More

Better then chain-restaurant Italian food in a pleasant, cozy restaurant setting. I dine there every couple of months with a group, and I would say people are generally satisfied with food and service. In my experience the food ranges from average to very good, and okay value. One of two-few restaurants in Tallahassee with outdoor seating in a pleasant setting... More
