My husband and our two boys went by for lunch. Their sandwiches are fresh and delicious. Their large bottle of water is good and ice cold. They have bottles of soda for those who don't want water. Our boys got treated very sweetly. One of them didn't want anything, said he wasn't hungry. (He's 9). The lady fixed him a... More

The roll could have been eaten w/o any filling.Cannolis are filled to order so shell is fresh and crispy. We went home with deli meats, cheeses and grilled... More

Rosario and his team are not falling down on the job. It is two years since I reviewed Little Italy, and our lunch last Saturday was so good, I had to tell you again. I had the special Italian Combo on homemade bread--excellent--and enough for two meals, so I took half of it home. My wife asked Rosario to make... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over many years. I have eaten there for lunch as well as their multi course gourmet meal. Not only is the food fantastic, but the owners Rosario and Patty are special people. I cannot recommend this restaurant too highly. Everyone should go and feel the warmth and love . They even make...

I brought my parents here for their 50th Anniversary. We had the 7 course meal. I have to say the food was marvelous. Well thought out, beautiful presentation, and the combined ingredients absolutely brought my taste buds to life. The staff was incredible. Made us feel like we were at my Italian Grandma's home. Kisses on the cheek upon entry.... More

This place is very unique and the food is always great. A bit on the pricy side, but still worth it. Everybody is very nice and the homemade cookies are for sure a winner as well.

My wife, friends, and I always are assured of a most pleasant experience when we visit! A welcoming kiss on the cheeks greets the... More

10 of us traveled 30 minutes to the small town of Inverness to eat the special 7 course meal at Little Italy last week. One couple had eaten there before; the other 8 of us were newbies. The meal, the singing, the meal, the fun, the laughter, the meal, ...superb! Our seven courses included a pear and gorgonzola ravioli for... More

If you are looking for authentic Italian fare with the Mediterranean touch you've got to try this restaurant. Be adventurous and have them suggest a sandwich or just say "Make me a nice antipasto". The food is excellent quality and the cookies and cannoli's are to die for. A great place to take family and friends and an experience they... More

6 of us went to have a 7 course meal. The doors remain locked until promptly opening at 6:30 p.m. We were greeted by the owner who seated us and 8 others. The menu is already chosen for you. Some of what we had: Tomato baked with some sort of awesome seasoning & cheese, lamb chops very tender, pork that... More
