When i visit NYC, Little Italy is a must. To be immersed in the Itallian culture is delightful. If you visit China town, Little italy starts on Mulberry street and angles down for several blocks. Our favorite restaurant is on the corner called Bella. The food is to die for. Authetic Itallian dishes. Always friendly and entertaining.

My sister and I visited Little Italy on May 17, 2015. It is right beside Chinatown. We had the best cappuccino there at a little sidewalk restaurant. We had our cappuccino with a dessert and watched the people walk by. There is an amazing Christmas Store in Little Italy, best I have ever seen. Prices are good too. There are... More

We had the nicest Italian food here - nicer than Italy! There are so many lovely restaurants and cafes that all seem like they're worth a try. A very interesting area. If you are interested in Italian American history then do not miss this opportunity to see how its cultural is thriving in the city. Definitely try the food as... More

Its much smaller than "ChinaTown" But there were nice little shops and good places to go eat. I would recommend to anyone visiting New York to come to this place.

Take a walk around Little Italy to get a feeling Italia in the New York way. Great place to relax for a glass of wine or some pizza/pasta. Located right next to China Town.

Little Italy is one of the nicest neighbourhoods in NYC. We walked through here on the way down to the Brooklyn Bridge and loved every minute of it. The amazing graffiti art, deliciously smelling pizza and general atmosphere was just amazing. I can imagine this being a very vibrant and enjoyable place to live. Enjoyed this much more than Chinatown... More

We enjoyed walking through Little Italy after fleeing here from Chinatown. There were some great looking delis and bakeries everywhere, cute little restaurants and shops. No one was bothering you on the streets, you were allowed to just walk down the street and have a look around. I could spot so many pizza places it was insane, I couldn't make... More

Little Italy is the coolest part of this island. I want to live here but since I can't, my favorite time to go is durring the Feast of Gennaro. I've been to The Feast of Gennaro twice and I love it. However, this is not a rain or shine feastival. It rained the second time I went, it was still... More

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
