I have always wanted to go to Little Italy. Two weeks ago my mom and I took a girls vacation down to Wildwood and we finally ate here. We went for early bird and there was a lot of options and the portions were huge. Just wish we had gone here sooner. Will be back next month

Little Italy is a great place to go with your family ,but you must go at 4:00 pm so you could get a seat this restaurant is always full and yummy. I recommend this place 100 percent.

Our server, Ellie, was wonderful. One of our members is gluten free - they had options for her and our server was very helpful in ensuring she had a great meal. The portions are amazing! I had the gnocchi and they were cooked perfectly. This will be on our come back list for next year!

Little Italy Restaurant is a great place to eat! The food is great! Whatever you order it's delicious! Also they are very generous with their portions. You will sometimes need a doggie bag but you will save it for yourself not your dog.

Good family restaurant- always a wait and lots of large parties. Service is always fast and friendly. All meals come with delicious warm bread and butter and house salad. Would highly recommend the fried ravioli appetizer and the stuffed shrimp entree. Have tried the prime rib special on thursday nights, but not too impressed.

We went for the early bird which is for only between 4-5pm. We got there around 445 and there was a 30 minute Wait. My wife and I got the filet mignon off of the special. The steaks were really good. They serve it with a twice baked potato which was not good at all. The vegetable melody was really... More

Every year we enjoy dinner here one night while on vacation. We always go early since we usually have a large group. They have no problem seating us and the food always comes out prepared as we requested and always hot! I recommend going here while in Wildwood
