Very Good Food. Attractive Interior
Don't be put off by the shopping center location. Attractive and comfortable interior. Friendly staff - in a polite, non-pushy way. The food was a surprise. Very good and the pizza is terrific - wonderful crust and fresh tasting. A great find. We will become regulars. BYOB but no corking fees. Wish this place the best. It is a wonderful addition to the area and a cut above most of the Kennett Square restaurants. We couldn't get a reservation at Sovana Bistro on Sunday and were not disappointed to found Bite of Italy.

My only negative was Open
My only negative was Open Table made my reservation for 11:00AM on Sunday. Bite of Italy opened at noon! Luckily we shopped and returned to enjoy our lunch...delicious food and an excellent server!

Absolutely fabulous service
Several weekends a year, my husband and I drive up to Longwood Gardens for each of the seasonal displays. Bite of Italy is recognized as one of the top BYOBs in the area. So we made the Open Table reservation. All was good until we showed up on Sat. only to find out that we'd actually made a reservation for Fri...our mistake. They bent over backward to accommodate us. We split an order of carpaccio -- beef was tender and the accompanying field green salad well dressed. Main course seafood risotto and mushroom stuffed ravioli were also tasty. Nevertheless it is the outstanding service that makes this place remarkable. We'll be back...on the right day...to try the pizzas from the wood-fired oven. Many thanks for saving our evening!

Bite of Italy is a restaurant that can very ably handle a large group (we were a party of 13 adults). Not easy to do but all our meals arrived at the same time (some had pizza while others had entrees). Everything was hot and cooked to perfection. Also, our waiter did a marvelous job dealing with us. I must admit we tested his patients but he took all we threw at him in stride. The menu is diverse (Steak to pizza with lots of interesting things in between). Every meal and appetizer served to our table was very, very good...no complaints from anyone. My seafood ravioli was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Yummy pasta and interesting combos
We ate at Bite of Italy before going to Longwood Garden's for a play. Servers were attentive, the chef was making rounds to see if people were happy and the food was quite good. Homemade pasta. Better than average sauces. Very good bruschetta. BYOB, so it makes for a pleasant evening.

Very nice "find"
We tried to reserve at the Longwood Gardens restaurant before a concert but they were booked, so I turned to "Open Table" and found "Bite of Italy" practically next door (next traffic light past LG entrance, going south). We went at 5:30, so it was very quiet. Staff were great, prompt and friendly. It's in a little strip mall, so nothing fancy, but clean, low-lit, we chose a comfortable booth (as oppose to a table, but I'm sure that would have been fine too - not too close together), and it was quiet, with a great selection of Italian specialties and our dinners were delicious. We will definitely be going back.

We found this restaurant on
We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. We were in the area to attend a concert at Longwood Gardens. We told our waiter that we were in a bit of a rush and his service was extraordinary. The food was wonderful. We only wished we had time to stay a little longer to enjoy some appetizers and desert.

Good f ood
We actually ate fairly healthy while we were here, which is quite a feat when you are talking Italian, and everything we had was very good too. We will be back.

Don't let the location fool you, this is a great Italian restaurant that gets it right. We came here for our anniversary, and two days later my girlfriend is still raving about the food. Plus it's a BYOB, so we were able to bring our own bottle of wine to set the mood just how we liked it. We'll definitely be coming back here the next time we're in the area!

Good food, ambience, service
Table of 6 (4 adults, 2 high-chairs) Monday night, 5:45 reservations (placed online). It was quiet due to the day and time. We went there due to the recommendation of a friend on the food (homemade pastas), prices and ambience. The food was definitely tastey and reasonable, not huge, portions; there were two doggy bags. I didn't hear a complaint from any at the table about the food or anything else for that matter. Server was pleasant as was the food runner. Ambience was modern and comfy all in all. Downsides: Somehow our sons order of spaghetti and meatballs was forgotten. Server took the spag off the bill without issue after realizing he never got it when she brought the check. We'll come back for sure!

Great big bite
Don't judge a book by it's cover, it sits in a shopping center, but there is nothing ordinary about this place. The food was all home made by a family from Italy. Service was great, the chef was adorable and the food was wonderful. The rolls were home made and hot out of the oven, the antipasti had every conceivable italian meet, cheese, and vegetable associated with antipasti. The kitchen was extrememly flexible, changing the dishes to suit our wishes and the flavors are everything I would expect in a restaurant in Italy. We drove an hour to meet friends and it was well worth it, we will be going back.
