My preference is for the calamari at Giovanni's over Little Joey's. For caesar salad, my preference is Isabella's. Although Isabellas is not Italian per se, it is mediterranean and has a variety of Greek, Italian, Spanish tapas, etc.

I always liked Augustines. Unfortunately it is gone. Dominic's had very weak marinara sauce and tough sausages. Never went back.

The concensus among us Italians is the Naples Resturant in Leesburg.

We've never tried Naples yet will have to do that! Augustine's was the absolute worst food I have ever had, we even gave it a second and third chance and each time it was horrible. Prego out of a jar was better. We have never had a bad dinner at Dominics and have eaten there many times. Their garlic bread twists are to die for. Svc. has been slow a couple of times but I think like many restaurants in the Villages turnover of help sometimes leaves them shorthanded. Giovannis is pretty good, Little Joey's is good value nice place but Phil's in Belleview (suddenly gone) was wonderful!!!!

Thought Dominics was very average food while the price seemed anything but average, i.e. high for the quality of food. I have only been there once though.

I like the little pizzas at Katie Belles. Anyone else like those? They seem reasonably priced too.
