Great family restaurant

Had a very good dinner here with a large family group. Food was very tasty. Service was very attentive. There are tables in the courtyard, allowing the younger children to get up and move around.

Returning from a quick trip to Jacksonville, we decided to stop for a (very) late lunch in Tallahassee...And we had a hankering for Italian...so...we looked up the possibilities near us, and settled on Little Italy. As we reached it, we discovered it was in a shopping center, and, frankly, thought it would at best be ok. Boy, were we surprised!... More

Two very handsome gentlemen greeted me as I walked through the door sweaty and tired from a long walk with my dog in the blistering heat. All I wanted was a cold beer and I got much more than that. The owner spilled his water and blamed it on me and we both laughed, A younger version of him served... More

I have been more that ten times in Little Italy and every time i was there i have been more than happy with the food, ambience and mostly with the staff and the chief. I suggest to all of you to go and to try the healthy and rich menu that this restaurant provides.

This family restaurant has been open over 20 years. The courtyard setting is beautiful. My whole family enjoyed their meal... Veal Parmigiana, Eggplant Parmigana, Chicken Alfredo, Spaghetti and Antipasto Salad. Yummy.

Twice recently we were with a large group that had made reservations. The food was fine , but the service was very slow. They need to have enough staff to handle a group. Several other persons were not helping the one server.

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
