What Makes Us

So Good

Whether you meet us at our family-friendly restaurant or we cater for your next event or party, you’ll notice the difference immediately with our rich, flavorful Italian food made from scratch.

Dining In

We're a Local Favorite

Whether you’re coming from Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Land O’ Lakes, or anywhere in the New Tampa area, our guests cannot stop raving about the quality and experience at Little Italy’s Family Restaurant & Catering.  We’ve been honored to be placed in the top restaurants in our area, and blessed to be talked about so enthusiastically on Yelp, Facebook, etc.

Cozy & Intimate

We’re a small, local “Mom-and-Pop’s” restaurant style.  No fancy gimmicks, just a warm, family atmosphere just like if you were at our Grandma’s house.  We’d love to get to know you and talk with you! Stop on by and become part of the family!

Lunch & Dinner Options

Whether you need something on-the-go for your lunch break or taking your date out for scrumptious, authentic Italian food, our menu items are sure to please! From our famous Meatball Subs, our monster Calzones, our perfect Sicilian Pizza, or our divine Shrimp Scampi, you’ll leave happy–we guarantee it!


Experience Little Italy

Our recipes literally come from generations of authentic Italian cooks who would love making delicious meals for their families.  When you taste Grandma’s secret recipes, you’ll finally understand why we had to share this gift with others.  We pour our hearts into the food that you enjoy, from our hand-rolled meatballs to our heavenly lasagna.

Five-Star Service

When you have Little Italy’s cater for your big event, we pull out all the stops to bring quality, top-notch service so that you can feel at ease and simply enjoy yourself (and the food!).  We have a full staff ready to set up tables, food, etc. as well as serve your guests.

It was our third date when we sat down by the fountain in Federal Hill on Providence (referred to as “Little Italy’s”). Frank Sinatra was serenading us as Carl took my (Jessica) hand and danced with me. It was right then and there that we fell in love. After moving to Florida and getting married, our love and passion in making our Italian Family Recipes for our friends grew stronger. So we opened up our first food truck and called it “Little Italy’s Meatballs. Through enormous success and love for our product, we officially opened up our store in Lutz, Florida where you will find Little Italy’s Family Restaurant & Catering, waiting to serve you my Grandmother’s famous meatballs and “gravy” (Sauce).
