“Wonderful Food at a Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We live in Canada close to the US border and just discovered Little Italy. Nice ambiance and very congenial staff. We loved the Italian decor and my husband appreciated the hockey photos and paraphernalia. Lots to choose from on the menu. I had the Eggplant Parmesan which was very good, though there was a very slight fried oil taste which did not stop me from enjoying my choice.My husband loved the Spaghetti and Meatballs. We shared a Cannoli for dessert and it was excellent. The coffee was well brewed and robust, unlike many restaurants whose coffee is their downfall. The cost of our supper was very reasonable and therefore we will return. You have to try this place at least once.

“another ok visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We went back after an argument about which Ogdensburg restaurant to visit. Our food was ok. The place was quiet at that time (lazy Sunday afternoon).

“Good food, Slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Stopped at this place for lunch on a Saturday as per some friends recommendations. Food is indeed decent but I cannot say it was outstanding. Good, not excellent. Portions are fairly large to the point the antipasto we ordered could be easily shared by a group of four.That said, service was very slow and nit good at all. The girl could not answer simple questions like "do you have a gas or wood burning oven for the pizzas?" and again took a very long time to do everything. Price is on the cheap side so good value overall.

“Typical - nice decor though”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This restaurant had a very eclectic decor - a little bit of everything. It smelled good and garlicky when you walked in the door. Varied menu - everything from pizza to dinners, with great prices. We shared an order of garlic knots which were ok. My husband got a dinner of chicken parm which was good. It was supposed to come salad and a roll, but we never saw the roll. Maybe she figured since we ordered garlic knots?? I had lasagna, which was average. Nothing special. Could have used more sauce for my liking.

“Like being home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

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.
