Was welcomed at dooe by female host who explained strollers were not allowed inside but showed... read more

After a relaxing day at the beach and a surprise trip to the Emergency Room, we decided to find a restaurant close to our hotel so we could call it an early evening. The wait was about 20 minutes, and my kids hemmed and hawed as to whether or not we should stay. We figured it would take us that... More

Our family waited patiently for 35 minutes for this BYOB restaurant. The food was very good, seafood fresh and lots if it. The salad for 2 was really a salad for 6. Everyone enjoyed the meals with plenty of food to take home.

It was our first night in Wildwood and we were looking for a place to have dinner. The person at front desk in our hotel suggested Little Italy. So we tried it out. The restaurant itself is very nice in terms of decor and overall appearance. It was busy when we arrived and we were required to wait outside until... More

Nice atmosphere, extensive menu, and friendly staff. I like that you get a salad and choice of vegtable with your dinner. The homemade bread dipped in olive oil is the perfect appetizer.

Food was awesome..service was great. Very clean upscale restaurant. They do not serve liquor or wine or beer that was the only issue we had but the upside is you can bring your own so next time we know now. Highly recommend

Whenever we passed this place, there was always a bunch of people waiting for tables outside. This year we found out why. We tried out the place for Wildwood's Restaurant Week, and luckily we only had a few minutes wait to get in. The décor is magnificent, as it is designed to look like and Italian courtyard. Whereas most restaurants... More

The food here was really good, plus it is a byob. Had an appatizer of all the entrees platter, really good choice, for dinner we all ordered the lobster ravioli. Delicious! Decor is very nice and service was good. Little disapointed that there were no crayons for the kids, nothing to help parents relax just for that one moment, but,... More
