They were very busy and we only waited a few minutes for a table. Our server was attentive and friendly. It was very noisy. We didn't know until that day that Wildwood Crest is a dry town, so BYOB. Our food was good and they have oysters, which is a big plus for my husband.

Little Italy, without a doubt, is one of the best restaurants to eat at in Wildwood. It is a BYOB restaurant with fantastic food and terrific service. There is something for everyone, seafood, veal, chicken,pasta. They serve the best warm dinner rolls that are so delicious you could make a meal just on them. The plates are always overflowing with... More

Always our favorite place to go when we are in Wildwood. Food is always excellent. Staff is awesome. Great atmosphere. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu and they give you a TON of food! Can't wait to go back next summer!

Lovely atmosphere, designed to look like an Italian marketplace. Staff was pleasant and friendly. Food was outstanding! They can accommodate gluten free diners as well with fantastic alternatives. I ended up taking nearly half of my dinner home with me as the serving size was so large. I would definitely recommend.

The early bird special is amazing just like all of there food. The wait for ten minutes is well worth it we sometimes stop in twice a week.

Excellent value and good food. Try the seafood. It was fabulous and the deserts are the best. Very family friendly. We've been going there for several years every year.

We love this restaurant! My husband doesn't even like pasta but loves coming here. They make the best gravy ever. I was thrilled when I could buy some to take home with me. We look forward to eating here every year and will be back again!

If a 0 star was option it still wouldn't be low enough! I'd give this place a -5 or lower if I could! Not because of the food but because if the staff! First let me say.. the BIG guy that seats you is a nasty rude person! We sat right near the door.. the entire time he kept looking... More
