What a great disappointment. The food was crap and I felt like I was truly ripped off. A number of locals told me that the small restaurants moved to the Bronx. I did manage to have a great italian meal in Chelsea....

To really see this neighborhood come alive, come during the San Gennero Festival in September and see the giant statues carried around the neighborhood. This is as close to Southern Italy as you can get in New York City.

Right next to Chinatown. The store and restaurant owners are very friendly and proud to share their heritage. Can't wait to go back and spend more time.

A nice place to be in especially since we visited during the San Gennaro feast so the place was more lively. Good Italian food and the Christmas Shop in little Italy has everything you ask for, for your Christmas tree.

If want many Italian restaurant choices, go to Little Italy. The smell of garlic and the many Italian aromas is wonderful. Also fantastic Italian desserts. It was hard to pick where to eat and which dessert to settle on. Also, good souvenir shops.
