Thanks to Chef Francis Pons and his wife Debra, owners of A Little Bite of Italy, LBI has a gourmet restaurant worthy of 5 stars. Vacationers and locals alike can savor excellent Mediterranean/French food in a casual, intimate setting without being rushed out the door. The service is first-rate. On Friday of Memorial Day weekend, Debra greeted my family and... More

I have had many memorable and wonderful experiences here. The location is perfect - very close to our beach house. The ambiance is charming and very comfortable. All of the food is magnificent. They make the best hoagies on the island!!! For dinner, it's a prix fixe arrangement - 3 generous courses for $39/person....a real bargain for this quality of... More

Bottom line is the food is very good. But that's not the only reason you go out to eat. We expect to be pampered and served in a way that makes us feel special. While the experience ended up nicely, it just started so bizarrely that I have to comment. The owner Debra waited on us initially. The only menu... More

My girlfriend and I were hanging around LBI and wanted to try this restaurant. Deli was superb and service was great. However, are major complaint was with a woman, (who knows maybe she is the stuck up owner, manager, caterer, staff etc.), treated us and another couple with incredibly poor service. We all knew the restaurant was closed, but politely... More

We have a summer home in Surf City and spend most summer weekends here. Love the prix fix dinner menu at "Little Bite". Always enjoy the great food and casual ambiance of the dining room. The owners are friendly and warm. In the height of summer, be sure to make an advance reservation for dinner as seating is limited. It... More

Food is not good, it is GREAT! We brought our family in for Easter Sunday dinner and we enjoyed every course. There was a new Spring menu which featured some of our favorites (calamari with broccoli rabe), some new favorites (codfish stew) and some delicious specials (rack of lamb, osso bucco). The owners are lovely people and I do not... More

Food is good. Limited menu to pick from and usually the same choices each time you go. Owner could be a bit nicer.

We have been visiting LBI for over 30 years. We enjoyed many restaurants but over the past years Little Bite has become a mainstay for us. The fresh homemade pasta dinners and salads make great meals. The deli selections and pizza are the best we have had on the island. The Italian cheeses and breads are incredible. The owners and...

My husband and I had the grilled calamari and broccoli rabe for apt which was grilled to perfection. For dinner on the pre fix menu was also wonderful, the lobster ravioli, whole lobster wrapped in the homemade pasta shell. The desserts, we were told are all in store made by the chef. We had the crème brule and chocolate bomb,... More
