Little Italy Restaurant celebrates its 25th anniversary this week! Owners Cathy and Franco Nocera started their business in Nassawadox in what was then a sub shop with a couple of tables and a few chairs. Franco and Cathy started serving pizza in addition to sandwiches and the menu expanded from there.
Menu additions weren’t the only changes that were made. More seating was added as the restaurant moved into an adjoining building and the Sinatra Room was added increasing Little Italy’s seating capacity and the capability to hold larger group banquets and events.
Today, Franco and Cathy’s Little Italy Restaurant continues to serve southern Italian cooking and some local favorites as well to the Eastern Shore. Whether it’s a dinner for two or a group of 150 Little Italy has become a destination for residents and tourists alike.
