Delicious and excellent service

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.

For the last few years our family has been getting our sandwiches from here...best italian sub (with hot peppers!)...on the beach...perfect day! We were happy to learn that they started serving dinner as well. Always seasonal, always fresh...try the duck with fresh cherries or the bouillabaisse when it's on special, or the open-face lobster ravioli....truly delicious. For dessert, go for... More

Small dinning area, summer three course fixed menu, very fresh nicely presented meals. I ordered the Sea Bass -excellent!! My husband ordered the veal chop - not as tender as he would have liked- overall a very good meal with delicious desserts! We will go back again in the fall when the new menu comes out!

When we read that 11 reviews out of 44 were terrible we should have avoided this restaurant. We have been on LBI for 23 years and thought we would give Little Bite of Italy a chance. Arriving at 6:30pm we found only one other table occupied in the restaurant. It took 55 minutes to get our pear salad and calamari.... More

This place consistently makes a killer sandwich. It has a sandwich take out menu, but they will make you anything you want. Whatever you get, add their sharp provolone. Worth the drive to the island. Portions are very generous - one sandwich is two meals for me. Nice alternative when you don't want to cook but also don't feel like... More

Coming from Brooklyn, NY I am always skeptical of buying pizza outside my "comfort zone." But... this place had very good pizza. I had a bacon chicken ranch slice which was delicious. Others with me had a Grandma slice which they told me was sublime. Prices were reasonable, 4 slices, two sodas and a bottle of water was under $23.... More

Sad but true! I made the 6:00 p.m. reservation around noon, so space was definitely not an issue. Our party of four arrived on time to find a nearly empty dining room. One family group of five was seated at a far table. Every other table was empty. I announced us to a spritely smiling woman who would end up... More

My wife and I love the dining experience, food is outstanding and Debra and her husband are great hosts. Experience the amazing food, the veal chops are superb as is the desserts. Enjoy, cheers. They make you feel at home away from home. Bonanni's

Stopped in to see what kind of "Italian" specialties were offered and the woman who waited on us was very unpleasant. She actually seemed angry for some reason. I asked some questions about the roasted red peppers and the marinated artichokes and received terse, one word replies. I will never purchase anything from an establishment where the customer service is... More

If you want a quick, family meal forget about this place. If you want a romantic, intimate experience with delightful cuisine, please call for a reservation. My boyfriend and I are regulars and we look forward to our dates at Little Bite. The owner and his wife take the time to visit with each table even when the place is... More
