Little Italy is a continental restaurant, specialising in Italian and Portuguese fare. It was established in 1992 and is based in Glenanda, South Johannesburg. It was founded by a tight knit Italian family with the vision of providing authentic Italian food in a warm and relaxed environment. At Little Italy, from the moment you set foot on the premises until the moment you leave, they strive to make you feel as if you never left home.


The menu at Little Italy is extensive with over 50 delectable dishes to choose from. Traditional Portuguese dishes include Alheira (crispy fried sausage with fried egg), Portuguese steak, espatada, Portuguese sardines, piri piri chicken, prego rolls and much more. On the Italian front, there is a wide variety of traditional and designer pastas and pizzas with that much loved home cooked Italian feel. There is also a wide selection of meat dishes on offer, including lamb shank and eisbein, salads, seafood and combo surf n turf meals. Whatever you are in the mood for, Little Italy can provide it.


Little Italy prides itself on being affordable in difficult financial times, and they have priced their menu in a way that it is affordable for most patrons, without taking anything away from the quality and /or quantity. The décor is old school Italian restaurant, with saloon style booths and visible pizza ovens.

There is a dedicated kid’s play area complete with toys and activities to keep the little ones amused. Little Italy also provides a function area for large and small groups and can seat up to 300 guests.
