The best meatballs we had in Manhattan !

We came in twice during our shoet stay in Soho, once for lunch and the other for dinner, simply because the kids wanted more of the great meatballs. But more than that, the open look to the streets of the east village makes this place feel vibrant, the service is quick and very friendly, and above... read more

Worth a visit if you want to do the same and also for the food witch is great. Probably seen other write it but the fries with... More

We enjoyed meeting here with the ladies for lunch. Each of us chose a different salad and they were all very large and very tasty. If you are in the neighborhood definitely stop by.

Good venue, opened out to the street in downtown New York. Great ambience and friendly service. However, beers and wine both warm for a summers day. Had various interesting starters including cheese burger spring rolls and a tuna tartar (very fresh), this was followed by a lack lustre over priced chicken sandwich and over salted chips. There was simply no... More

Had a nice romantic meal here with my boyfriend. It's in a great location in Soho and had a great atmosphere. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful in recommending their favourite dishes. I went for the salmon & quinoa which was very good and my boyfriend had the chicken Parmesan with tomatoes which was a good size for him!... More

We had a great dinner here. Loved the side-walk care feel (even though we ate inside because it was a little breezy outside). We ordered the Lobster Mac and the Margarita Mac and they were both delicious. Very attentive service, nice atmosphere.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
