The service was great. The ravioli with a butter sauce and walnuts was amazing. They split our salad and our entree's for us on separate plates without even hesitating. The atmosphere is what you would expect for a NYC Little Italy experience. Loved it, would definitely go back.

We were walking through Little Italy and stumbled upon Pellegrino's and it was a very good choice. They welcomed us with open arms for lunch and the food and service were excellent. Well worth the trip if you're in the area or have to travel to the area.

My family and I used to go to Il Palazzo in Little Italy each time we were in New York. Last year, we learned that Il Palazzo had closed. We searched for a replacement restaurant in Little Italy. We decided to try Pellegrino's. The menu looked great. It turns out that Pellegrino's is actually owned by the same people who... More

This is my most favorite restaurant in Little Italy. Hands down! The place is very cozy and at Christmas almost magical. The food is fabulous and portions generous. Eveyone there is so friendly and helpful. I have never had a dish that I didn't like. This time stuffed artichoke was the special appetizer, I was embarrased to say that I... More

Good Italian food, good ambiance, and good service need not be expensive, even in Little Italy, NYC. Except for the Zagat sign outside with the rating, the kerbside view is quiet and nondescript but inside, the restaurant is deep, crowded, and vast. Our group of six ordered five different entrees and all of those were well-cooked and satisfying. Service is... More

Over the years we have spent many summers in NYC . Tried many Restaurants. Pellegrino's without a doubt is on our favorite list. We have never been disappointed - always left with smiles and full tummies. The meals are scrumptious and a great value. I recommend to try to have a reservation even if calling the same day. Have eaten... More

If you are down in Little Italy, this is probably the best choice. The food was good; the cocktail menu was limited. The service was very good, as well.

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.
