If you are looking for great food in a quiet setting, this is the place. The menu is simple but has an excellent selection of food and everything is tasty. I’ve visited countless times and I’m always satisfied!

We looked for a nice Italian restaurant visiting the Burlington, NC area with family, and our expectations were exceeded! The food was delicious, from the generous portions of fresh-baked bread and fresh salads to the absolutely delicious main courses, which everyone enjoyed. The lobster ravioli...More

The food was served hot, and good. The service was prompt and the price was good. The salad was cold, the pizza was hot. We enjoyed our experience and will return.

Oh My Gosh! My son has been making pizza for 26 years so he knows pizza! (he doesn't work here) The pizza is amazing! We will be back to try other dishes on one of our Tuesday father/son get-togethers.

Not being familiar with the area, stumbled upon this family run restaurant. Service was very friendly. Typical Italian restaurant offerings-good pizza and salads. Veal entree was a bit tough. Really enjoyed the bread dipped in oil--very yummy. When bill arrived, there were no prices-the waitress...More

Fast & delicious for eat-in or take-out. When no time to cook, this Italian frequently visits Gino & family at Little Italy! Never disappointed and great value!

The decor is not special- more diner than fine dining. However, the food is authentic and fantastic! The best spaghetti carbonara outside of Italy! Homemade bread to die for!

We have been here many times, both for dine-in and take out. The service is friendly and prompt. Simply the best pizza in Burlington. The owners are from Italy and they know what they are doing. Dinner entrees are likewise excellent.

Restaurant DescriptionWelcome to Little Italy Pizza & Italian Restaurant. Located conveniently off of I-40 in University Commons Shopping Center, this family friendly restaurant is your place for authentic Italian cuisine.Head Chef/Owner Gino Carannante and his wife Lisa's passion for good food inspired the opening of Little Italy Pizza & Italian Restaurant in Burlington in 2007. In his home country of Italy, the art of cooking is a tradition. In fact, Gino's first cooking lessons were times spent as a kid observing his mother while she busily prepared food in the kitchen for the family. It was the same philosophy and long standing appreciation for technique and flavor that he puts into each dish they serve.We are very well known for the superior quality of our pizza, calzones and strombolis. We also serve a variety of subs and Philly cheese steaks. But, our customers also love our homemade lasagna, chicken parmesan and fettuccini Alfredo.At Little Italy, we make sure that each customer feels at home, just like family! This sense of family is what distinguishes us from other business in our area. Our restaurant is one of the few family owned and operated Italian restaurants in Burlington, not to mention by a true Italian chef.
