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

Took a stroll through Chinatown and up through Little Italy on our way back up to Upper Manhattan. Really enjoyed the buildings and the feel of it down here. No crowds but neat views and you'll pass more little neighborhoods along the way north. Would definitely go again even though they didn't have any famous "sights".

There's actually very little left of "little Italy" in NYC, maybe two or three blocks. The only present day remnant worth going to commemorating the mark that Italian immigrants left on NYC is the San Gennaro Feast, held in September. When the Feast is held, the entire area turns into one huge carnival, with lots of vendors that sell everything... More

we went for some shopping in Chinatown and then we find the Little Italy at the next road. Full of Italian restaurants to sit, relax and eat.

This place had a bit more character than Chinatown . It was nice to look at some of the shops which sells bespoke glassware. Food is good too and a lot of variety.

Little Italy has become just a street in Chinatown. It feels like a place that is still trying to be authentic, but not pulling it off. You can find much better food, and much nicer people in many other Italian restaurants across the city.

We went on Friday night for dinner. Yes it was touristy but we had to go. We ate at Café Napoli where they had the rare gluten free pasta. Maybe just maybe you can feel like you are n Italy because most people are eating outside and eating pasta. It is on mulberry street right next to Chinatown. Yes t... More
