“The Real Thing; Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

It's probably a good thing that we found It's Italian only on our last day in Hampton Beach; otherwise everything else we ate would have paled in comparison. We read about the restaurant in one of the local papers, and after a little searching (it is located just south of the boardwalk area), we went in for lunch. What amazing food! Anthony and his nephew Robert serve up meatballs better my mother-in-law makes (don't tell her!), perfect tomato sauce, wonderful veal. We had a meatball sub and a veal parm sandwich - absolutely perfect. It's not a formal dining room by any stretch, but you got the feeling you were in someone's kitchen, including conversation and a lot of laughs. If you want your Italian food to be absolutely authentic, check this place out. We know we'll be back!
