Great value, substantial portions, and good food. When most places in town are "greasy spoons", bars or sketchy, Little Italy is a real restaurant with really good food. We've been going there for years with large groups (with varied tastes and diets) on our annual Wildwood summer vacation...and nobody has ever been dissatisfied. Hint for families...try to get a reservation... More

This place is awesome on the best beach. I come here every year with my family. It's away from the boardwalk crowds but also walking distance from there. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. I book every year in December when they have their xmas special and save 40 percent. No brainer!!

My friend and I ate here on a weeknight in August. There was a short wait, but it was well worth it! The ambiance was nice, the restaurant was clean. It's a little pricier than your average restaurant, but again, the food was well-worth it. Our orders arrived correct, steaming hot (literally), and the portions were HUGE. My friend had... More

They were very busy and we only waited a few minutes for a table. Our server was attentive and friendly. It was very noisy. We didn't know until that day that Wildwood Crest is a dry town, so BYOB. Our food was good and they have oysters, which is a big plus for my husband.

Little Italy, without a doubt, is one of the best restaurants to eat at in Wildwood. It is a BYOB restaurant with fantastic food and terrific service. There is something for everyone, seafood, veal, chicken,pasta. They serve the best warm dinner rolls that are so delicious you could make a meal just on them. The plates are always overflowing with... More

Lovely atmosphere, designed to look like an Italian marketplace. Staff was pleasant and friendly. Food was outstanding! They can accommodate gluten free diners as well with fantastic alternatives. I ended up taking nearly half of my dinner home with me as the serving size was so large. I would definitely recommend.

Thank Tammy M
