In the busy city of NY, this area was nice and calm. With many restaurants and some clothing stores it was unique to smell real Italian food in the air. Menu's are lined up all along the sidewalks making it difficult to decide. Give this area a vist.

We took advantage of the free guided tour included with the New York Pass. Booked it a couple of months before our visit and it also included Soho and Chinatown. Little Italy was by far the most interesting part to me. As a fan of Mafia movies and true crime stories I was in my element. Our guide talked about... More

There is little left of Italy. Some few restaurants which might be considered a tourist trap are still there. If you are around anyway you can have a short walk, but I would not make the effort to go here for Little Italy itself.

The Little Italy neighborhood is fairly small, and you might combine it with the rest of the 5 Boroughs (well whats left from them anyway), and at least with the China Town. Roaming the streets you cant help but revert back to all of the Hollywood movies featuring this neighborhood, and its fascinating and often tragic and violent history. You... More

The Italian-feel is very obvious once one stepped into this district of NYC. Even though some part of it overlaps with the Chinatown, it is not hard to distinguish it from the Chinese atmosphere of the area.

Just some Italian restaurants, some shops and tourists really. If you are looking for Italian specialties it might be easier to find them here and the standard of the restaurants looked quite good, but anything you can find here you can find in other places in New York. I suggest that you visit it st the same time as Chinatown... More

So different and fun from anyplace we'd seen. Nice to be able to experience all these nice areas of NYC while we were there. We stopped and had lunch at one of the little restaurants with outside seating. Awesome time.

Staying in Little Italy

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
