Y husband and I love this place. I would have given it a 5 but they've gotten our order messed up a few times. The only reason we go back is the mess ups are still good and they are so friendly. I did take a visitor and they messed up our order twice so a bit disappointment on that... More

Little Habana never disappoints. We dine there frequently and use their catering service. The food is great, the service superb and you're treated like family. My favorite is moro rice, pork and tostones. This is a family operation and it's obvious there's a lot of pride there. I definitely recommend it.

Always treated with a smile and a warm welcome. No better food in the area. They make everything fresh. I have tried a lot of different things on the menu.

This small, comfortable restaurant features outstanding Cuban food, prepared and served with warmth and style by the owners, Alberto and Tanya. Visit a few times and be welcomed as a friend. It's all great, with fish and chicken dishes particular favorites. You really can't go wrong, and prices are reasonable, particularly considering the quality. Don't miss it.

Small (15 to 20 tables) but the food is excellent. Everything is prepared fresh. My family and I eat here a lot and I've never had anything that wasn't great. The service is top notch too, and the owners are great people.

Cuban sandwiches are offered two ways, the original, which is the way they make it in Miami, and the "wannabe" which is the way they make it in Tampa. steak sandwich has crispy shoestring potatoes in the sandwich for "crunchification" (as Bobby Flay would say). the banana chips served on the side are a welcome change from potato chips.

I tried the real Cuban sandwich and was not very happy with it, lack of flavor and overall just ok. The places is upbeat courteous and other dishes looked good. Will need to come back probably just an off visit.
