We arrived early & were seated in the cozy back area near a wall. We found the atmosphere to be excellent, with soft lighting & music. I had Veal Parmigiana (a bit stringy), with linguini, my wife had Lasagna, which was good. I asked for extra sauce, & it was brought immediately in a gravy dish enough for 2. Our... More

I ordered the eggplant parm. It was so bad, that I couldn't even eat it. None of it. Horrible!! Waiter didn't even ask if my food was ok, or why I didnt eat it. Just cleared the dishes away. Our daughter had chicken marsala and it was "ok". I wouldn't eat here again though.

We had an awesome dining experience at Little Italy, Wildwood Crest. Everything we beyond our expectation, from the time we arrived, we enjoyed warm, crusty bread, fresh salad, and the best entrees.. From chicken Marsala, shrimp scampi, and linguini with white clam sauce compares with the best Italian restaurants in NYC! Even the cannoli was comparable to Ferraro's..if not better.... More

We were 7 people - only complaint from us was: no fresh grated parmesan cheese and my veal was a bit tough. We had a little over an hour wait but we go there every year and so expected it. Service was great. Prices fair. Just remember to BYO.

This place does get very crowded for dinner and I was never sure why they always had people lined up out side. Great early bird specials from 4p to 5p for around $15. Portions that are generous and filling. Overall not a bad dining experience.

Great setting and service is great! Food arrives quickly and servers are very knowledgable, polite, and happy! Definitely see the teamwork with the service! Coming from someone who has spent time in Italy, this is the next best place to have italian food outside Italy itself! Food is fresh and prepared perfectly! Great portions! Highly recommend it!

It's like the local version of Olive Garden. Big crowds. People waiting at the doors. But it's noisy and bustling. Get 'em in-get 'em out mentality. The red sauce was very good. Gnocchi and manicotti also good. Broiled Mediterranean flounder -- dry and tasteless! No wine, beer or liquor because WWC is a "dry" town. Terri our server was excellent!

I was here a few years ago and found it to be loud and crowded with mediocre food and tonight's visit was no different. Arrived before five on a rainy weekday night after Labor Day and waited longer than the stated 20 minute wait. The host is brusque, rattling off something standard but does not welcome you or say anything... More

Been to Little Italy several times before. This time we had dinner with friens who have never eaten there before. You can BYOB if you want. Good bread and a nice green salad (served fanily style) comes with your meal. We shared the claims casino which is excellent. I had the Veal Vincenzo and my husband had the Veal Marsala... More

This is our go to place in Wildwood Crest, every year we eat here at least twice during our week of vacation. We have had most everything on the menu and haven't had a bad meal yet! Service is always great and the staff is friendly. It is in the Crest, so no liquor license. ...bring your own bottle!!
