Back in the early 1900's Littly Italy comprised dozens of blocks, with over 10,000 Italians living in the neighborhood. Sadly today, it spans only a few blocks along Mulberry Street. The restaurants and shops that are still there are authentic Italian and worth visiting. Last year I took a walking tour through greatnytours.com, which was very interesting and informative, filled... More

not exactly a little Italy. Rather just a really small area with Italian restaurants. Food was good, service not so much.

Walked from battery point through China town to little Italy. Stopped for food here which was great, eat outside so you can watch the world go by. Looks a lot like the Chinese are trying to over run little Italy so it might not be there for much longer!

It is so sad to see this neighborhood has lost both its authenticity and surface area. It now just seems an average and unattractive and very small replica of the original that I first saw in 1996 !

It is probably true that today Little Italy has lost part of its original charm, made of 100% Italian habits and tastes but it is still worth a visit if you want to try to travel through Italians' first steps in NY and/or you stay in abstinence of pasta.

Such ammount of italian restaurants in one place is not possible find anywhere else. You can choose according to the price and dishes in the menu where do you want to dinner. As well, there are some ice-cream corners for people, like me who adore ice-cream.:)

Not a big area. Worth visiting and having lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants. I would not put this as a must see of New York City.

Nice place to Visit while traveling to lower Manhattan. Let's face it, you go here for the authentic food which it didn't disappoint. Loved the food, but also love the area. Neat shops and decor along with many places to eat make this part of NYC a must visit for food lovers.

Little Italy is undoubtedly one of my favorite places in NYC. Fascinating that an old big neighborhood has been shrinking to only one street at the heart of bigger and bigger Chinatown has succeed to keep an incredible authenticity. Mulberry Street is an absolute delight! The restaurants, the shops, the paintings on the walls, the lovely decorations... I'll return one... More

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.
