This is our favorite dinner restaurant in Tupper Lake. As the name implies, it features Italian cuisine and also provides good take-out pizza. I usually do a seafood (shrimp, mussels, scallops) in marinara sauce. They do not take credit cards but have an ATM in the restaurant.

The pizza crust is so thin and decadent you can eat a whole pie! The owner Ted is so charming and handsome and caters to his staff and customers like a guitarist tuning his guitar. He really doesn't miss a beat! The restaurant runs like a well oiled machine, the atmosphere is electric. Some of my best conversations have been... More

Excellent menu with many choices. Large portions, friendly service, great prices. The decor is slightly dated, but the restaurant is clean. Staff is very pleasant.

This place is a staple of Tupper Lake for lots of good reasons. The food is reliably good, the service warm and efficient. Since adding a bar a few years ago, it's a great place to meet new friends. I often order a slight variation of what's on the menu, and it never rattles the chef. He's a pro!

Food is excellent. The atmosphere is great and it is nicely decorated. The staff is friendly and cheerful. The only downside is, they do not take credit cards, but they do have an ATM available. If you are with a group and desire separate checks, it is not a problem. I have been there when it has been busy and... More

We dine in and order take-out from Little Italy quite often. we had dinner there on Friday - everyone ordered the fish dinner. The entire dinner was excellent. The salad, rolls, green beans, homemade French Fries and the fish were all excellent. They also have craft beer from the Raquette River Brewery - outstanding. I always highly recommend Little Italy.

My family of 7 was in Tupper lake for Columbus Day weekend. We visited this restaurant based on trip advisor. Very busy place. Had to wait for a table. Seemed a little unorganized. We ordered an extra large pizza which was very good. Also ordered garlic knots and chicken wings. The food was good. They do not accept credit/debit cards... More

We stopped in for a late dinner after driving three hours on a sunday afternoon. Most places were closed. Even though they had a bear of a day with so much business (Sunday on Columbus day weekend) they were warm and inviting at 9PM. They were out of a few things (like garlic knots, which we were SO looking forward... More
