My sister and I heard this restaurant was fabulous. We were recommended the early bird and we arrived 20 min before opening mid week. Literally- there are 20 plus staff ready to go to move the EB crowd. They are ready for your order almost before you sit down. I had eggplant p and sis had garlic shrimp. Both great... More

Fourth year eating at this establishment while on vacation. Food is always good and reasonably quick. Parking can be difficult, but if you get there early, you can find a spot in the free lot on property. The bread they give you is just okay for the meal, it would be nice if that was improved. The pasta dishes are... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time while in Wildwood, and we absolutely loved it. The food was so unbelievably good! The waitstaff was very professional also. The canoli's are something you just can't miss! My mouth is watering just writing this review.

We decided we were craving Italian food, so we went to Little Italy. Initially, we felt unwelcomed by the staff, who showed little if any concern in our visit. When the food came, the pasta was undercooked and resembled broken rubber bands in taste. The service was poor at best and we will certainly find a different venue next time.... More

I would definitely return! The staff was great and so was the food! Family friendly atmosphere! My kids loved the food and they were to make any modification to your order! I would recommend this place to anyone and plan on returning during our next trip. It was very crowded but the wait time was reasonable.

the food & service were great.we have been there many times in the past 3 years & never had a bad meal. they also have an early bird special for $ 14.50 & a good selection for the kids too. the regular menu prices I thought were good. a must to try for the family or couples.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant during our recent stay in Wildwood Crest. When we entered, we informed the host/manager/owner that we were gluten-free and were told that our waiter/waitress would help us with the menu. The guy could have been more engaged or warmer with customers entering the restaurant IMO. I asked him if we could be seated... More

When staying in Wildwood one of our "things to do" is planning a family meal at this wonderful restaurant ! Most of time we spend running up and down the boardwalk , it's refreshing to have a nice place to sit and enjoy and meal! The bruschetta is something to brag about! Along with their traditional cuisine!

Must say this restaurant is well run, they turn over tables quickly and serve a lot of people at one time. Delicious food and fantastic service.

For our table of six- pina coladas were excellent. We were caught in a rainstorm and our server Nick insisted that we wait the storm out. The portions were huge and very, very delicious. The cappuccino was fantastic.
