“Lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We were in Huntsville overnight and happened upon this restaurant; what a lucky find. Our pasta was the best we'd ever eaten, the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the service was excellent. We can't recommend this restaurant enough - you won't be disappointed! Tracie O'Keefe and Paul McGoveran

“Best Restaurant in Huntsville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We enjoyed dinner here one night after a day of hiking in Algonquin Park. Don't expect a large, trendy restaurant with a huge menu. It is small, basic, clean, & has a menu offering italian classics at great prices. I liked the family photos, news articles about the resto, & old, hand-written family recipes that adorned the walls.

We split a salad, I had the handmade gnocchi & my husband had the seafood pasta. Everything was delicious & the portions were large. We enjoyed the homemade gelato for dessert; it was awesome!

The service was friendly & efficient. We wish we lived closer! You gotta eat here!

“Awesome place with amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended by the owner of our B&B as a good place to eat. It was way better then good! The place is small but nice, the people friendly, and the service fast. We had pizza made with spur dough crust that was great, we also had the special chicken Marseilles which came with home made pasta. We share our meals so they brought an extra plate. I had a coffee which was really good, lots of flavor. The meal was delicious and the cost was under $50 for 2. It was so good we went back for lunch 2 days later. We had the soup special (roasted red pepper) and a grilled cheese on multigrain bread. I had the chicken parm panni which was amazing.
I will eat here again when I am in the area.

“Great Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

My husband and I were shopping in Huntsville and wanted to grab a bite for lunch. We came upon That Little Place by the Lights and there were quite a few customers waiting to be served. We took a chance and ordered meat lasagna and spaghetti. We were not expecting anything special, however,when we took our first bite, we both agreed that the Italian dishes were two of the best we have had. The restaurant is small and you could walk right by it as you peruse the shops on main street. We definitely recommend that you take a break and have a great lunch or dinner -you will not regret it.
