Head down to the shore of course and families have been hitting the Wildwoods for over a 100 years. TripAdvisor announced that the Wildwoods it the best beach town to go to. There... More

Little Italy's food was excellant. Although there was a line we were seated almost immediately. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The portions were huge. When you are visiting Wildwood make it a point to stop in, you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful place!! Great early bird specials and amazing food! We went during restaurant week, great way to try new or different things. It is easy to see why the place is always crowded. Service is the best and the food is awesome!!! We have gone back many times now and are never disappointed!!

Visited Friday night off season for Columbus Day weekend. The restaurant was quite crowded but we were able to be seated right away. I would imagine there is a waiting line out the door during peak summer evenings. Friendly and attentive service even though it was a busy night. Dinners were generously portioned and very, very good. Even if you... More

We were visiting for the Race Of The Gentlemen event. We had dinner here 2 nights as it was absolutely fabulous food and service. The restaurant was really busy and our servers were so quick and attentive.

Tasty Italian in a market setting. We always visit with the family and the service is always outstanding. The restaurant is loud, but always a fun experience. Get there early for huge early bird specials with salad and dessert. Well worth the price. The prime rib is excellent when they have it on the menu.
