Below average. I came here for...

Below average. I came here for lunch with a group of 6. The service was slow.

We were seated in an area that was previously reserved so we had to move after taking our orders. The server didn't remember who ordered what and some of the orders were wrong.

Everybody in the group said the food tasted fine. The lunch prices are reasonable.

I probably will not go back.

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.




you guys are racists. never going back!

I went in 03-09-13 to take my parents to dinner. The snotty hostess and old man that worked there were rude and made me and my family feel unwelcome. After we arrived, she told me that the wait time for a party of 3 would be 45 minutes, three minutes later a WHITE family of FOUR came in and she told them 'it will be a 30 minute wait'. i tried to overlook this. as i kept waiting, larger parties kept coming in(white people) and they would be seated first despite the fact that my family and i had arrived before them. the old man(i guess manager or owner) was handing out water to people(again white people) waiting but didn't offer any to my family. the snotty hostess would give me a dirty look every now and then & snap 'can i help you?'. Finally i said 'f--k this,i am not letting these racists take my money,i can tell we are not welcome' and we left. it's a shame.

this isn't 'slander' by any means, this was an awful and unfortunate experience. if people are allowed to post postive reviews on this page,then people should be allowed to post the negative as well. your lack of concern really cannot 'fix this problem' at this point.

Delightful dining experience

I am new to San Antonio, and I was thrilled to be introduced to Little Italy. The restaurant's interior reminds me of a cute little Italian restaurant I used to go to when I was growing up in Chicago. We were warmly greeted at the door, and led to a cozy booth for two. The service was excellent, and the pizza was absolutely delicious. Being able to carry on a conversation at dinner is very important to me, and the ambiance is just right. I have nothing but good things to say about this charming Italian restaurant, and will be a regular from now on.



Worst Service Ever

Worst restaurant experience in my entire life. We were seated immediately, and ignored for 20 minutes while the 3 other tables in the entire place were waited on. I do not recommend this place to anyone. Over priced, terrible service, run down location, and overall unclean place. We left after being ignored and nobody said a word. It was as if we were invisible. This place came highly recommended by friends here in the city, but, we were disappopinted and encourage others not to waste your time or money in such a poorly run establishment. I'm sure the owner will get on and call me names, but, as the owner, I'd want someone to advise on the terrible service. This is the first and only time I've ever rated any restaurant, and I hope someone will read this and correct the problems, since Little Italy is supposed to be the best Italian food in San Antonio.

Cheapened Down

My husband & I really thought they ""cheapened down"" their product(s). The fried calimari appetizer we ordered used to be fresh fried calimari. Now it seems like they buy a pre-made bag of frozen battered calamari in bulk from Sysco & fry it up. And the marinera sauce that came w/ the calimari was like chunky ketchup & tabasco sauce. The margherita pizza was the only good thing. And even that didn't have fresh garlic on it like I had ordered. It was jarred diced-up garlic. Probably won't go back. They didn't even offer me a drink while I waited for my order (that should have been done because I ordered ahead of time for pick-up). They wanted to charge me $2.95 for an iced-tea!

solid A-

We've been 3 times in the last 3 months. The food was great all 3 times, it tasted home made or at least prepared fresh. The salads, soups and bread were decent also...especially the chicken and vegetable soup! The servic was a bit inconsistent, you do have to track down the waiters sometimes...weekdays are not as much fun, weekends seem better or at least we felt the service was more attentive. Other than that, great place to take visitors from out of town, great food and a homey feel from the management/ownership.



Love, love, love Little Italy!...

Love, love, love Little Italy! Great, affordably priced restuarant with extremely attentive waitstaff and superb food to boot. What's not to love?

great Italian restaurant!

We have been to Little Italy approximately 6 times since finding it 6 months ago. We love their food---and prices are fair. One of our favorite restaurants in San Antonio!
We have taken several family members to Little Italy when they have visited and all have been impressed.

This Paesan Gets 2 Thumbs UP!!!

Pizza...Pizza ...Pizza! If you are looking for a true ITALIAN PIZZA, then this is the place for you!
I have been eating their pizza since I was's been 30 years now and its still just as great!
I remember as a child, waiting for our table on a clear Friday night....chilly weather........New York accents....paesan's all around....and that tastey hot thin slice of pizza that you would get while waiting for your table. The blend of cheeses, the hommade sauce and thin crispy crust was to die for. I have not found anything like this one since being in New York.
I give this Paesan 2 thumbs up!!!
