Been to the Little Oven dozens of times. Never been disappointed. Always very good food, and lots of it. Always friendly service! Always reasonably priced. I really like the shrimp and the fish dinners. Can't say a bad thing about the Little Oven. They are terrific!

We have eaten dinner at the Little Oven for years and years, but never breakfast (served until 11 am). I chose an entree from the Lenten Specials menu, the Crab Cakes Benedict. Crab cakes, poached eggs, seasoned tomato slices, hollandaise sauce, and the no charge canadian bacon in an English muffin. The rest of the plate not covered with the... More

This was our first visit to Little Oven and it was a great find. The menu is extensive so difficult to decide what to try. I had the Mezo Mezo, which was a combination of ravioli and spaghetti with meatballs; delicious and enough to share. The Italian dinner was the choice of two in our party and was a good... More

As a lifelong East Sider, Little Oven has always been a go-to place for pizza, especially when ordering for large groups. An annual tradition at one of our winter Boy Scout camping trips was that our go-home meal was always Little Oven, and boy, did it always taste so good as we ate it in that cold January wind! I...

This restaurant works well for 2 and up. The staff is friendly and breakfast was great. We wanted to meet up with family here and it worked out perfectly. There isn't a huge parking lot yet you can park on the street. I felt the prices were very reasonable and for 4 it was like 42.00 and that is with... More

The lasanga which people raved about is really overated. It was served cold, and the noodles were tough , plus there wasn't any flavor at all. VERY DISAPPOINTING. If you ar egoing to eat there try something else. This is the 3rd time I was there and all 3 visiy=ts have been disappointing.

Outstanding dinner and great service to boot! It's very rare for me to give 5 stars for any place I've been but the food and service were both fantastic!! Our lasagna was amazing and the various breads were terrific! Out of our table of 4, each person was thrilled with the flavor and quality of the food! Our waitstaff, Adrienne,... More

Not the most romantic place for a Valentine's dinner but the menu that was offered the Saturday before appealed to us so we decided to try something new. The restaurant itself could definitely invest in some new chairs as many of them were ripped. Other than that the food was excellent, service was great and we won at pulltabs! We... More
