A party of 11 of us booked in for my birthday after seeing good reviews. We had no idea where to go for food since we are tourists. Got off on the wrong foot at first as was half an hour late but I did ring ahead to appologise as I was stuck in traffic due to president arriving. I... More

If you love Italian food and great atmosphere. go to Pellegrino's on Mulberry Street in Little Italy. Great service with an unhurried approach to dining. A place where you can relax and enjoy the food and "old world" neighborhood.

Very nice people and service. They have a fairly good wine list and it is reasonably priced. The artichoke special was very good but all the rest of the food terrible. The sea bass special could have been excellent but pairing it with an eggplant, peppers, olives and tomatoes just overwhelmed the fish. The veal was over cooked. The pastas... More

I was at Pellegrinos a number of years ago and was very pleased. Therefore I went back this time, but I regret it terribly. I had the frutti di mare, and the way I remember it, it was very tasty with olive oil, garlic, chili and parsley. Now it was drenched in tomato sauce and completely without finesse. The seafood...

Have been to Pellegrino's several times, and consistently receive excellent service and great food! The lobster ravioli special this past visit was excellent!

Showed up about 7:30 pm on a Saturday night and got seated inside without a reservation (there was only one other empty table inside). Service was great! We ordered two pasta dishes - one with a vodka sauce and one with a cream sauce/asparagus/pancetta. Both were "better than average" pasta dishes - we were quite pleased. Nice bread service (though...

I was very disappointed with the very basic meal that I ordered. I could have went to my local pizzeria & had the same quality meal. Not worth the $50 parking... Shrimp was salty, sauce had way too much better. There are many better options in Little Italy.

Good service. Pillowy soft gnocchi. Mussels and clams tasted strange and were dry and chewy. Wife's chicken dish was not impressive with an eh sauce. Desserts were very good. Espresso served in a coffee cup? We've had stellar italian in New Haven ct. Also a Little italy(Tre Scalini) Over all, not impressed.

Randomly selected this restaurant after reading reviews for a bunch of restaurants in Little Italy and we were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly and received attentive service through the whole meal. Of course, it may have helped that it was pouring down rain and mid week so the crowd was light. Enjoyed the variety in the menu and was... More

Much more varied and better quality menu than is found at most Little Itsly restaurants. The service is also more attentive and professional than at other restaurants in the area. We had an excellent meal.
