Little Italy was one place I saw on every gangster film I watched só could not avoid going there during our first trip to NYC. I had heard that the area was shrinking but did not expect it to be so small - just basically 1 street full of restaurants and a few corner shops and delicatessens. Still glad I... More

I've been coming to Little Italy since middle school. I have fond memories of the Italian restaurant and bakeries taking up a nice portion of the area.

For those unfortunate enough to not have lived or visited Italy, this is a must see in NYC. Having lived in Naples Italy for 3 years, I value to quality of some of the places! Beware in all NYC they add the tip (18-20%) to the bill...don't double tip!

Fancy finding Little Italy adjacent to Chinatown. So visitors get 2 sites for the price of a cab ride. Here you find many Italian rest and dessert shops.

It has been a great experience. I went looking for the oldest Italian rest in the EEUU. Very tasty food and very smart waiters, plus, I felt like everybody was being tender with me.

Very Italian, loads of restaurants hidden away in a small corner of New York. Well worth a visit, just to chill out and relax, let the world go by. Had original Italian food which was very enjoyable

Little Italy has so much to offer... souvenier shopping with vendors that arent' harrassing you like in Chinatown, amazing bakeries and tons of places to eat. It's totally worth spending part of your day here.

This neighbourhood is famous for it's eateries. Little Italy has loads of Italian restaurants and many of them still keep to 'traditional' recipes and meals. If you like Italian food, head on down to Little Italy to get your groove on. Recommended!
