It's really worth stopping by little Italy. It's charming, affordable shops and street vendors on the way in as well. Even if it's just for a cannoli, stop by.

I was able to stumble upon little Italy on a day trip to NYC, and this would be a reason I return. The family owned eateries it's difficult to pick one, therefore try a little something from all of them.

All Italians please stay away. This is a tourist trap!!! The restaurants are average and you can smell the fish from Chinatown. Save your money and go to a show on Broadway.

For every Italian, italian food lover or simply an NYC explorer, this is a very nice place to spend around 1 hour of your afternoon. It is an Italian neighbourhood filled with italian restaurants, shops and bakeries. The decoration here is very nice and appealing, however i was very surprised that it was so small. Also i noticed that in... More

Little Italy is very little and not a whole lot on offer apart from souvenir stores and restaurants trying to lure you in. I did walk into a good Deli but apart from that nothing there excited me too much.

You do not see the old gangsters, but a lot of nice restaurants and small shops. We visit Restaurant Bueno Notti, almost on the corner to the Canel str. Top service, top food and nice and clean. Walking throug Little Italie you can Find small shops and make a good buy

Mostly just gift shops and sidewalk restaurants, touting for business. Had a mediocre lunch of homemade ravioli with a bottle of water costing 9 dollars (everywhere else a glass of water comes free as standard) and a glass of wine for 14 dollars! A sixty dollars bill for a small portion of food and drinks. Wasn't even a high class... 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.
