We've been going to Little Italy for the last 4 years. A homely place in a small town just across the bridge to Canada. A small Border crossing so it is convenient and just one hour out of Canada's nation capital. The restaurant will even give you a voucher to save the $3 crossing fare.
Now, back to the food. There's always more than I can eat. Varied every time. And prices never go up ( that's part of their magic). We know Joe (the owner) on a first name basis and he's not shy to walk around and hear customer reviews first hand. The decor is "kitch" ( christmas or hockey colours year-round). Simplicity. A first class service with dedicated servers. The food is plentiful, savory, varied from one time to the next, with fresh salads. Key word: simplicity. Try it if you happen to be close by.

Nice menu that includes gluten-free pasta and pizza ! The food was very fresh and tasty. The place is nice and the staff is very friendly.

Stopped in to Little Italy for lunch on the recommendation from a friend. Decor is very odd (mix of sports and italian decor). Waited a while to get seated, but the place didn't appear to be very busy. Servers were friendly, however food was average. We may try again, but even the menu was very basic and certain items were only available for dinner (like chicken parmasean). I had a slice of pizze (3 toppings) and the other guest had spagetti with meat balls. Both were OK.

Normally we enjoyed this restaurant. The service is friendly but tends to be slow at offering drinks when you first arrive, always puzzles us. The last time we ate at LI the owner made quite a fuss over the cook missing an item on the order slip. He brought the poor young man out to apologize not only embarrassing him but making our table of 8 feeling quite awkward as well. We felt this was over the top but he tends to be a real show boat. We were not happy with the public lynching at all. Nice to pay attention to detail but we all make mistakes. A simple apology would have been sufficient.
