So.... Pellegrino's has a sign outside proudly touting it's Zagat rating of a 24 for food and 24 for service. That's a pretty darn good rating. Being a native New Yorker and having been to Little Italy, many. many times; the restaurants usually disappoint and are nothing more than hyped up over priced tourist traps. Pellegrino's is interesting. To get... More

We have been to Little Italy many times and weren't sure where we wanted to eat. We decided to stop into Pellegrino's and we are so glad we did. From the time we entered we were treated as expected guests, not customers. Our host was charming as were the wait staff. The food was everything we could want. Fresh pasta,... More

Happened upon this restaurant while walking through Little Italy. We were a group of 6 and they seated us right away. The service was attentive but no too much..the food was excellent, very flavorful. We had chicken, seafood, and pasta dishes as well as dessert and coffee and we enjoyed everything thoroughly. The only reason I am giving it a... More

My family ate at Pellegrio's this part weekend and had a great time. My son claimed it was the best pasta and vodka sauce he had ever had. I don't think he was to far off. All of our dinners; veal, ravioli and chicken rise to the same level. Food service was fast and friendly. Call ahead as you would... More

We walked around Little Italy and decided on Pellegrino's due to their marketing as the #1 ZAGAT rated restaurant in Little Italy. I was reticent initially as the atmosphere inside was I thought a "jam them in and take their money kind of feeling". I quickly got over that feeling and looked forward to enjoying an anniversary meal with my... More

LOVED this restaurant. The Rigatoni alla Vodka (spicy vodka cream sauce with sausage, prosciutto and mushrooms) was amazing! Would eat that dish every day. The service was fantastic. My husband and I were actually not that hungry because we had eaten so much recently (Milk Bar Soho) and had plans change, so we were heading back to our hotel for... More

Go here every Year in December.

Being from Melbourne and having the Italian food mecca of Lygon St we made Little Italy a must visit so that we could compare the Big Apple with our home town. We had a bit of a stroll and after reading reviews on here we decided to stop at Pellegrino's for lunch. After 3 courses of modern and traditional Italian... More

My husband and I ate at Pellegrino's after seeing the Rockettes Christmas Show last weekend. The staff and the food are incredibly authentic, everything we ordered was amazing. They brought warm bread to start, and we ordered a caesar salad to split as a starter. For our meals, I ordered a pasta with mushroom sauce and my husband ordered pasta... More
