Great deli sandwiches with some sides and the greatest gelato this side of Italy. The owners are from Italy and are very nice. Only open M-T for lunch. On Friday by reservations.

They always make everyone feel welcome. I eat here often and have never been disappointed. Real family atmosphere. Great addition to a small town like ours.

My hubby and I walked in here based on the reviews for this restaurant and have discovered an incredible gym in Inverness! Wow! Absolutely the best Panini's ever and the deli meats and cheeses are sliced fresh. I had the sandwich named the Fahgettaboudit and my hubby had the Italian. Both were delicious but mine was off-the-charts excellent! Wherever you... More

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

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
