Stayed in Abilene overnight, tried Little Italy because it had great reviews - was not dissappointed. Very nice waitstaff, no line, great food. The rolls & olive oil were wonderful, as was the chicken parm & fettuccine. The outside of the place is nothing fancy in an old shopping center but it was really a great meal & the price... More

I was looking for a local Italian restaurant that was close to home, served great food, had a friendly and welcoming feel, had great service and was family friendly. Now that is a tall order and I hoped that I might find a location that met at least half of my expectations. Then I was introduced to Little Italy. All... More

Went for a weekday lunch. Waited for a table for 12 minutes. Several of the wait staff made eye contact with us, but no one spoke to us. The restaurant didn't seem to be very busy, so not sure why there wasn't a hostess to seat us. By the time we were seated, we had seen at least 3 other... More

Great Italian food at a fair price. Cozy private booths or open dining. Food is prepared fresh daily and you can tell by the taste. This is no fast food joint. So if you are looking for a nice place to take your date for a quite evening and enjoy great food and a large selection of wines. Make it... More

Visiting from Wyoming and I turned to the locals for a great recommendation and they did not fail me! Went on a Sunday night and it was slow but service was not; tasty ravioli with Alfredo sauce came out swiftly and piping hot. Won't complain but will return!

I love this place! I've never had a bad experience here. They have all the regular Italian dishes, I particularly like their Alfredo sauce. The portions are large and the best part is the fresh hot bread and olive oil, which they'll bring in unlimited quantities! It's really nice for lunch and a great place for dinner. Friday's and Saturday's... More

We found this place on the Trip Advisor app. The food was excellent. My wife had the chicken Parmesan and rated it excellent. I had the shrimp Diablo and also found it excellent. The food was flavored very good without being too rich. The service was good but not great. It took a little bit to be waited on, so... More

This was recommended by the hotel. It was cool and nice and the waitress. Kaja, was wonderful. However, the food was just passable. It was large portions, but very greasy.

My family and I visited this restaurant for dinner when we were passing through Abilene. We were not impressed. Like the title of my review states, the service was good but the food was average at best. Also, the atmosphere was was rather bad. It was dark, outdated and not very inviting. If we ever find ourselves in Abilene again... More

My wife and I went there last night (6/9/16). Immediately seated near Dan so we could listen to his beautiful guitar. Our server was perfect so I thought we were in for a treat. I ordered the veal parmesan and my wife ordered the mixed seafood pasta. We had calamari as an appetizer. My wife's seafood was cooked well but... More
