Italian dishes are all about herbs - fresh ones too. The other thing it doesn't smell nice when you get it. Not sure if the staff uses dirty cloths to wipe tables or... More

We've been many times to Little Italy now! They have a great selection of starters and even more of mains. Since I tried the Bruschetta one night, I always have to get it now! Great staff too.

We went there with my boyfriend on a Sunday night and were very happy to come across this place! Staff was nice and available. Decoration, atmosphere and music set up a calming romantic scene. We had delicious goat crostini as a starter, then I had pasta with gambas and my boyfriend had the tagliatelle carbonara. The dishes were really tasty... More
