My boyfriend and I made reservations here and enjoyed the romantic atmosphere. It can be for families as well, but it is dim in the restaurant. The bread was good and the pasta was delicious. The alfredo has a great creamy sauce and the staff was helpful.

Two female friends and I went in and were seated within 5 minutes. The restaurant was busy but not swamped. Our very friendly server, Richard, took our drink order and told us the specials for the day. He brought our drinks and didn't bring bread. After a while, the owner brought our bread, apologizing because we didn't have any yet.... More

Our friends have been telling us about Little Italy for months, so tonight we got a party bus and made the trip from Fresno (about 45 miles). We started with bruschetta that was very generous in size and toppings. We tried the meat sauce, and the meat balls, with the excellent loaf of artisan bread that came immediately. We all... More

This was a great experience. I love Italian food and there are not a lot of choices in Visalia. The experience lived up to the hype. The food was good and the atmosphere was great.

We had a party for my niece. Seventeen adults and children. The service and food were both below par. The price was high for the level of both we received. This is an established place, but someone wasn't paying attention to what is necessary. We won't be returning.

Italian restaurants are usually the same however Little Italy is a step above the normal pasta mill. They make a great martini and my wife had a Venetian lemonade that she absolutely loved. The frutti de mare was spectacular and my wife really enjoyed her chicken. I highly recommend their Italian wedding soup.

This was the best Italian restaurant I've been to in a long time and my whole family agreed! I had a rosé cannoli which was spectacular. My mother had spaghetti, thinking it would be average and she was completely wrong. She said it was by far the best spaghetti she's ever eaten! This place is clean and well worth the... More

Little Italy is a nice restaurant that does what it should, serve Italian food in a sit-down dining experience. Nothing really exceptional, though our service was good. The place to go when it must be Italian when visiting Visalia.
