Having had quite enough of the reheated microwaved food at Olive Garden, we gave Little Italy a try. We were a little put off by the cheesy atmosphere at first- grape arbors hanging from the ceiling and a very Sopranos-esque look with booths and darkened dining room. But the server was polite and efficient and we immediately had a fresh basket of bread rolls (large rolls) served with a spiced dipping olive oil. The salad bar is nicely provisioned, except for one unusual exclusion- there were no croutons. ( Our waitress had to bring some from the kitchen) The menu is quite long, and takes some scrutiny, but I enjoyed my chicken parmagiana (sp?) and our group had large portions of lasagna in a little boat (plenty to take home) and manicotti (same large size). The prices are more reasonable than O Garden, for sure. There is a wine list, but we aren't wine drinkers, so I'm not sure of the quality there. Dessert is a little bit odd. We ordered a tiramisu, and it came from a case over by the salad bar- in a little plastic cup. Not exactly the finest presentation. Also for some reason on the three visits we've made, the waitress has disappeared after bringing the check. We waited for her to come back to take our card far too long. Anyway, if you are familiar with the old Spano's restaurant that was by the mall of Abilene, this would be comparable.
