Took in Little Italy as part of a walking tour - saw some great buildings and sampled some fantastic sweet pastries at Ferrara! The 'gangland' history is there to be explored - thank goodness it's now a relatively safe place to frequent!

I enjoyed the people. Their personalities are entertaining. There are many restaurants an many of them had people out front sharing their specials. There were several places to shop that my wife enjoyed. Hard to decide with many good options. I do recommend Cannoli King.

After eating on Mulberry St, I wandered down the street and came upon this store. It is quite large and had many unique gifts and ornaments. There are tons of ornaments with all different themes. I bought a new baby First Christmas for my great nephew and it was personalized for free. There are various other items for sale. Also... More

We went during San Generro festival in September 2014. Mulberry street was fun and packed. There was definitely a festival that was under-control and in good spirits. Around 11pm the drinks start to get going and the crowd turned a bit ugly. There were a lot of tension in the streets and even the area where the kid's ride are... More

Just a street of restaurants. Not a must exactly, although I'd advise you to visit if you are thinking of enjoying an Italian meal, since the restaurants are of the finest in town.

Although Little Italy has shrunk down to only a few blocks, it's still a define go to place. Great indoor/ outdoor restaurants. I love the street vendors still selling Gelato and Cannoli . Yum!

We really enjoyed Little Italy. Being a first time traveller to NYC, I cannot comment on the size of it but I can say there were several great restaurants to choose from. Walking through Chinatown to get there was not a good experience. These two areas are right next to each other.

Having toured Italy we thought a visit to Little Italy might bring back some memories. Alas no!!! Ok I know New York is not Italy but so much more could be done here. The restaurants looked tired, the shops too. This could be so much more. Disappointing!!!

Very nice atmosphere particularly at night. Felt glad to get to it after Chinatown. Most restaurants very good but a little bit to pushy with customers on the pavements. Recommend having a ''Conolli'' cake at the Italian bakery at the start of the are after leaving Chinatown.

I remember it being bigger from years ago. I enjoyed my food here and my waiter just came from Italy and didn't speak much English. I enjoyed the hospitality. But I missed Italy! I thought there might be shops with clothes and wares from Italy, but from what I could see it was more restaurants, bakeries and souvenir shops more... More
