What a lovely tranquil place. It was very relaxing to walk down the street. The cafe's were nice and had lots of things to try. A retreat from the hustle and bustle of Times Square.

Was really excited to visit Little Italy on our tour and eat some great food. Unfortunately we didn't get to eat here as we ate in Chinatown...... which almost overtook Little Italy. There were only a couple streets that were Italian in flavor. The rest were overtaken by Chinatown. Would like to have seen this place in its heyday. But... More

There is no Little Italy anymore, it's in China town. If you look for Italian shops in New York go to Bronx , those are real.

This seems to be a very small area in New York City. I didn't really find anything there to see. It's not that there was anything bad there, I just didn't see a reason to go there. I'd skip it and see something else.

Chinatown has taken over little Italy but they still have a few great places to go. Be aware of the non authentic restaurants run my the Asians. Lombardis still as good as always and Ferraras still the best Italian bakery.

the walk down Mulberry St, made my eyes get wider and wider as I saw all the wonderful Italian restaurants that were there for you to try. We went twice, unfortunately we only had 6 days in NYC. Make the effort to do the walk, but also make the choice to stop and sample some of the wonderful Italian food.... More

I have to disclaim the fact that I am Italian, so Little Italy might mean more to me than the average tourist. That said, a lot of people don't know that this is where you can get great prices for very good Italian food. The competition is stiff, restaurants abound, so they have to keep prices very, very reasonable. It's... More
