Italian

The Genesis of Little Italy began in a different time and a different land during the era of Josie’s Restaurant in a Naples, Italy neighborhood. Gary and his siblings were little more than children, but already struggling with dishes and pans. More than a family, they were united by a common bond; not just by lineage but the same passion for the kitchen the customers and the dining experience.

What we have now created is a culinary experience that is both beautiful and inviting to new customers (and soon to be regulars) of Little Italy’s. You will find a real family – where values, like our food. The dream of this special project has finally materialized. Chef Gary, Luigi and Mario Recupido are proud to introduce you to Little Italy !

    The food was good. We ordered Italian staples and the only complaint was that they did not accommodate to switching sides out, and their Alfredo sauce is very thin. The staff was kind, the ambiance is a little weird. Can’t tell if it’s Italian or ocean themed.

    Every red sauce is it's own recipe. Most restaurants, the same sauce is used in every dish. Not so at Little Italy. Hours are poured into each dish. Mom is literally in the kitchen cooking. The wine list is extraordinary and the staff is very knowledgeable about the wine list. Exceptional dining experience!

    The service at the bar was great as was our appetizer. However, once we were seated at a table for our dinner reservation we were completely ignored. After 25-30 minutes of not being acknowledged, we notified the staff that we were leaving. There was no attempt to rectify the situation and at that point we were pretty much not in the mood to stay for a meal. We were disappointed and don't plan to return.

    Less than impressed. Food was lukewarm. Bartender was cussing when heard a big party was coming in. Waiter waited until dishes were cleared to ask if we wanted another glass of wine after drink had been gone over 15 minutes. Many menu items not available. Would not recommend.

    Chose Little Italy for our family of five’s Easter dinner. My wife is Italian and she swears Little Italy serves the best, most authentic Italian cuisine she has ever had. Wonderful staff. Desserts made by grandma in the kitchen. We had the pleasure of meeting the father of one of the owners who told us his story of being born on the island of Capri and growing up in Torre del Greco between the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius and the Gulf of Naples. It was a truly special Easter for our family.

    Worst service I ever experienced not exaggerating. Never got checked on one time so I never got to order my wine with my dinner, we never were bought any bread but I couldn’t tell the waitress she came back after dinner was over and my appetizer was missing. Once again had no one to ask about my missing appetizer the whole time. No water refills felt like I was in prison. Disappointed I even paid for the terrible penne.

    We were somewhat disappointed. We had to ask for bread, then butter. The spaghetti and meatballs were good, but the sauce wasn't the best for me. The lasagna noodles were way past al dente, almost not cooked. Very little cheese in the lasagna an small portion for a man. We just expected more.

    We made a reservation and were seated right away. The portions were very small and the prices were high. Our meal took over an hour to arrive. No bread was offered even though other tables had bread. We asked for it and then it was finally brought to us. My salmon was raw in the middle. The experience did not match the high price tag.

    I’ve been to this restaurant several times and it has always blown me away across the board. This time the food was sub par which was surprising based on previous experiences. Ryan the server was great as usual, (he’s been our server most times) the places was over crowded as they kept seating huge tables. So the noise level made it almost impossible to talk to my wife. As big tables were yelling at each other from long distances. And caused the staff to be inattentive to their tables. I will go back based on the service in hopes the food improves. But something changed there. I get cutting costs but not the food.

    Our waiter told us that we were in for a treat, and we were! The service and food were great! The atmosphere was a little loud, but it’s Bike Week in Florida. We ordered the chicken cacciatore and the spaghetti and meatballs. For dessert, we shared a tiramisu. All delicious - even the coffee was yummy, and I’m a bit of a coffee snob. We’ll definitely be back! A really nice experience! Thumbs up!

    This restaurant was excellent. Food was delicious. Suggest the Antipasto Rustica as an appetizer. Our server was so nice and made my wife a Tiramisu cocktail that was a dessert in itself. Will definitely visit again on our next visit.

    Arrived tasted the wine and we then ordered a Rodney Strong charade y which was fine; ordered fried calamari- sent back because was greasy my husband ordered Veal Saltimbuca & it was good I ordered the salmon piccata however the salmon was waaayy over cooked, did not eat. The desserts, tiramisu & sfolledelle (sp), was the only saving grace for this visit to Little Italy.
