Restaurant Review

Little Italy is one of the top Italian restaurants in Wildwood.


The restaurant is family owned and operated by Chef Giovanni Sansone and wife Sandy.


The interior is set up with small Italian piazzas or market places where diners can visit different markets i.e., a bakery, a fish market, etc.


The decor is attractive with a stoned floor and painted stores on the walls, However, the noise level tends to be high.


They offer a menu with a large variety of items with huge portions, using fresh ingredients. Their bread is baked daily on the premises. Home made pastas Seafood is locally caught.


They welcome large groups and families with children. They have a kids menu with a large selection.


The service is attentive and friendly.


They have seasonal hours; Open daily from the 3rd week in May to the 3rd week in September. Open on weekends in the Spring and Fall. They are closed from the 3rd week in October to the 1st weekend in April.
