Good service ! Good food!

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... read 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

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

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
