This used to be much bigger but China town took a lot over. Basically one street with a multitude or restaurants. We like Grotta Azzura. Always good food. These restaurants are competitive so you can get great Italian for a great price usually with 2 choices for your entree. Not much to do but we come to eat!

I love Little Italy. The sounds, the coffee, the food...so good. But it's so sad that it is so much smaller than it used to be. The San Gennaro feast keeps it alive. Go before it shrinks any more.

I'm sorry to say that Little Italy isn't once what it was in size, but the quality of food is still there. Definitely a place to visit, shop for pasta, hero's, and eat. Especially Ferrara Bakery on Grand St. Not the knockoff that stole the name, Bella Ferrara on Mulberry. We almost made that mistake. You have to go to... More

Little Italy is actually quite a small section of Lower Manhattan. It has a lot of restaurants, which I am sure are delightful. We happened to visit during the Feast of San Gennaro. The celebration we saw was complete with the carrying of a saint statue down the streets with appropriate music. There were crowds of people and vendors adding... More

This place was packed during the feast of San Gennaro with Italian food as far as the eye could see! I've been to many street celebrations but I've never seen anything like this. It was just massive and on a whole other level. Everything I ate was delicious and tasted like mamma's home cooking. My husband and I enjoyed it... More

Although it is a relatively small area of such big city, Little Italy is a very attractive region in which many tourists come to feel the scent of the past rugged times. The times when the first italian immigrants had come in America, their new promised land. Surely the space they lived in, in these first years was much larger,... More

Little Italy lives up to it's name! It is quite small..basically one street in the midst of Chinatown. If you are planning to visit Chinatown, then this could be a quick addition, otherwise I wouldn't worry about going there. We had excellent Italian food near Times Square so I am sure that if it is simply the food, you can... More
