We arrived at 8PM on a Sunday night very hungry. Business was very slow but the hostess was very friendly and seated us right away. Because of medical issues my wife and daughter asked if they could have a childs' menu item. The hostess was very obliging and offered to add a salad. They ordered lasagna and chicken alfredo. I...

I travel all over Texas as a nurse and decided to stop in and try Little Italy because of the reviews. I'm so glad I did! Incredible food...the bread and olive oil are delicious. Staff are a little distant, but I was there to eat, not chit chat! :) I asked for a customized pasta plate and it was perfectly... More

A surprise treat in Abilene. The best veal dishes in town. Has a quiet, romantic atmosphere; especially on Friday and Saturday evenings when Dan Mitchell is playing guitar! Give the Veal Murphy a try for a great meal.

My fiance got the baked pasta sampler, he LOVED the baked ziti. It came with manicotti and lasagna as well. I had the chicken picatta. The bread rolls are absolutely wonderful. The lemon butter sauce on the chicken picatta and spaghetti was wonderful! The only down parts was that my chicken tasted like old chicken so I didn't end up... More

This place is great!!! From the homemade bread and seasoned oil to the amazing pasta dishes, I have to get my fix at least once per week. They will mix and match any pasta/sauce combination. Everything is fresh and homemade. I get the spaghetti and meat balls with the spicy Diablo sauce, it is fantastic. The only problem is, now... More

We order for Little Italy using the Arrowhead service. We ordered from Little Italy because we have enjoyed their dining in food and service in the past. Arrowhead provided us with easy ordering and prompt deliver (35 minutes). However, we were disappointed in the meals delivered. We ordered cheese sticks that were under cooked. The Chicken Parmigiana and Eggplant Parmigiana... More

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
