Serving San Antonio for over 30 years
The Visocaro family is originally from Palermo, the capital of the Italian island of Sicily. They began introducing the flavors of the traditional Italian dishes in New York city with a modest pizzeria, “Paola’s Pizza Restaurant.” After 12 years of tiring cold and snowy weather, they decided to move to the much warmer city, San Antonio, Texas. In April 1983, Little Italy Restaurant & Pizzeria opened its doors with authentic New York style Italian cuisine.

  • “A rare gem. Fresh, home-made Italian food. Awesome bread. Great pizza and calzone. Typical Italian dinners and the not-so-typical seafood and deli. Good wine selection, separate bar. A staple in the neighborhood. Good for families and for dates. Unique. You'll want to brag to your friends about the new great little restaurant you found...that has been going strong for 30 years or so.”
