There is still an area left of once was a larger area called Little Italy. there are several restaurants to choose from. Ferrara's for dessert is an old stand by. The main strip now it feels like a tourist trap. The old restaurants don't hawk there wares on the sidewalk, they just serve good food seek them out..

We visited the area with a local and really enjoyed walking through the neighborhood. Very vibrant and exactly what we expected. We stopped at several places trying to decide which Italian cafe to eat at and our friend said we should just pick any place as they are all good. I would not go so far as to say that,... More

The menu's are different and the taste varies widely. I love... More

Go explore this area of NYC for wonderful food and a terrific Italian experience. We went specifically to go to a restaurant, but it is also worth going to explore, people watch, and take in the sights, sounds and smells.

We went on a walking tour of Little Italy and it was very good and quite interesting. We had food on it also which was yummy. I would have liked to return and go to a restuarant but didn't have time.

Simply a collection of mediocre and overpriced psuedo "authentic" Italian eateries with rushed and often rude service and hit or miss food. Many better Italian restaurants around the 5 boros.
