Little Italy Restaurant

Eh, its just ok. I had lunch here today with 5 other coworkers. The food was good but nothing amazing. And the service was terrible. It took a while for our server to greet the table...the place was not busy at the time. We ordered our meals with our drinks on his initial visit since we had plenty of time to look at the menu while waiting. The food took a long time to come out and the server couldn't remember what anyone had and "auctioned" out our food. And some of the orders were incorrect. It was difficult to get water refills. Then when paying it was an extended wait for the payments to be completed. All in all, I likely won't return even though the food wasn't bad.

Good burger, good price. I had lunch here today and got the Jalapeno Cheeseburger w/ Bacon. The burger is good, but the 1/3 lb. patty was pretty thin. If you like a thicker patty, you may want to get a bigger burger. The fries are good and homemade.

Very good! I went here for lunch today and my entire group enjoyed their dishes. I had the 1/2 Fried Shrimp Po'Boy and fries. The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked and it was VERY filling. The fries are frozen crinkle cut variety and a little soggy so I would probably wouldn't order them again. But everything else was GREAT! The service was good and the food came out quick. I will be back! Oh and the menu changes daily, so what's online is what the have every weekday. But there are several other dishes that change daily that are not on the website.

I have been to this legendary San Antonio restaurant several times in the past and I don't ever remember being this disappointed. I've always felt the food was good, but not fantastic. But normally the staff and atmosphere increase the pleasure of the dining experience.
Today it was TERRIBLE! The only thing that was good about my experience is that the food came out fast. 3 of us had the Grande Taco Salad during lunch. The beef taco meat was cold, the shell was cold and hard and my friend had SEVERAL pieces of gristle in her meat. Extremely unappetizing...It was awful! Another friend had the chicken quesadilla and it was VERY GREASY and she found 2 chicken bones when eating it. After telling the waiter (who was not great to begin with) about the gristle he replied "You should have told me sooner." My friend had just bit into the nasty meat 1/2 through her meal. Then after being told about the chicken bones, he didn't say a word. The waiter never apologized, and only the salad was removed from our bill. It was an awful dining experience and we will not be returning to this restaurant.

Great food! I visited Ray's today for lunch and it was great! The pizza was so good...thin but not crunchy, huge slices, just enough cheese, ample toppings and a yummy slightly sweet sauce. I also tried the stromboli which is huge and delicious...packed full of goodies! The only thing I didn't like about the place is that it was hard to hear the order numbers being called out for pick up.

Yummy messy sandwiches. The bread is very good, but soft so it gets pretty soggy by the end. The warm sandwiches had lots of my favorite...CHEESE! The service is not impressive at all. The cashier was borderline rude. Since I work nearby, I would go again for a sandwich.

Mostly good. The food is mostly good and the service was great! The menu is slightly confusing and somethings are overpriced. I had the mahi with crab butter sauce...very tasty! My husband had the shrimp feast...also very good, but the stuffed shrimp was just ok. The thing NOT to order is the appetizer of crab tostadas. They were tostitos scoops chips filled with lump crab meat and a sauce (good sauce) on the side. It was just weird and was not something you want to pay for.

It was just ok. I had the lunch special of 2 slices + side salad. Salad and pizza were good, but not great. The crust on pizza was thin but not crunchy...I liked that, but it needed more cheese and sauce. I also took an order of Chicken Picatta to go. It was not what I expected. It was a super thin pan seared chicken cutlet with capers on top...no butter sauce or anything. It came with slightly overcooked spaghetti noodles and a little marinara sauce. I wouldn't suggest this menu item. The service was good. The place is very tiny and very hot. There is seating outside, but it was 100+ degrees so we didn't choose to sit outdoors.
