Last night my wife and I dined here with friends. Tonight happened to be a slow night but we have been there before when it has been busy and have always had quality food and service. Our server, Kathryn, greeted us with a smile and made us feel right at home and answered all questions completely and accurately.

We started with the rice balls, they are to die for! We all had the homemade ricotta gnocchi tagliatelli served with choice of sauce. Both the bolognese and tomato pesto sauces were excellent. Dinners come with homade bread and soup or salad. We also had sides of meatballs, sausage, and garlic bread with mozzarella cheese. Serving sizes were more than adequate and each of us had leftovers for lunch the next day. They do not serve any acohol, but BYOB is welcome.

This is a small family owned gem located in what most would call a "strip mall" but the food is freshly made and prepared to order. Bring a bottle of wine and relax while Mom and family prepare your food.

While we were there a customer came in to order a takeout pizza. When informed that that there were no mushrooms available today, they asked why. The chef said that the mushrooms his supplier offered him that morning did not look very good and that he would not serve inferior food. This should give you an idea of the quality and pride this family puts into its food.

We will be back!

Absolutle BEST pizza in town. And authentic Italian food cooked right in the open-to-dining-room kitchen by Mama herself. Take a seat and prepare to be a member of the family for an evening, because there is no hurry here. You probably won't wait for a table in the tiny dining room, but you will have to wait while your food is prepared to order. A good Italian meal takes time! Bring your own bottle of wine, and Vincent and his staff will provide you with glasses and a corkscrew while other guests make wine recommendations based on your bottle. The rice ball appetizer is not to be missed! And as soon as I can make room, I plan on eating my way through the rest of their authentic Italian menu.

We've been to Little Sicily Strattoria many, many times since they opened about 4 years ago and have never been disappointed. This restaurant is a 'trattoria' in the true sense of the word -- family owned and operated. Every time we go, we expect to see my Sicilian grandmother and mother in the kitchen -- it is that authentic. We've tried just about everything on the menu and recommend it all. I've hesitated to review because we'd like to keep this little gem to ourselves, but Vinnie and his mother deserve much more. Try it, you'll love it.

This place is all about the food. I ordered manicotti. ($14.) The homemade sauce was suberb. The ricotta and noodles were done to perfection. The bread was just out of the oven and it smelled like gramma's kitchen.

The ambiance is like gramma's kitchen. Their are just a few wooden chairs and tables. And it is BYOB. In fact mama was in the kitchen and granddaughter was serving and son was baking bread and taking the orders.
