What a tourist trap. I'm sure the restaurants vary in quality but the one we chose was awful. We should have known by the relatively open seating. I think our pizza came from the freezer and the noodles from a box. Save yourself the agony and go eat at Eatily instead - place was packed and the pizza we had... More

Little Italy is always fun. In this particular trip, we were in a bit of a hurry, but we managed to find a good table at a nice restaurant and enjoyed the walk and the throngs of visitors that flock to the area.

This area is located between SoHo and Chinatown. Here you can find all kind of Italian shops and restaurants. Very alive at evenings and nights. I felt that the prices were a bit overpriced.

We had a great time walking through Little Italy on Mulberry Street. Gelato from a street vendor was a hit with my son as was the purchase of a Ferrari watch and soccer shirt. I picked up a trendy scarf for cheap and a NYC t-shirt. I recommend seeing it. I loved the flowers hanging over the street!

We spent several hours walking around China Town and it was time for a little refreshment. We found a nice little table on the street in Little Italy and had a few beers and people watched. Perfect way to end the day!

Great atmosphere! It was so close to my hotel, but I've only found out on the last day! Had dinner there. It was ok.

Little Italy is such a quaint area and the food is always fantastic, however, China Town is right next door and they are taking over our Little Italy. On a trip in June in between the restaurants, all the little vendors are from China Town. It's a shame to loose the history that was once there and made it such... More

We had a great meal at LA Mela, but there isn't much to do here. China Town is the next street over, there is more to see or shop at. We were told it use to be bigger but local government keeps taking away from the area.

One could feel the energy of this NYC neighborhood! Shopping was interesting and much less expensive than Times Square and the Fashion district. All sorts of restaurants and little shops, operated by families who had owned them for generations, proudly displayed their ethnic goods. We dined at a local eatery, but I think any of them would have been fabulous.... More

Great service, great food, beautiful patio. Sad that the area is shrinking with non-Italian businesses taking over.
