good italian gnocchi

Had a delicious gnocchi with a glass of red. Could choose your own sauce but I went for the gorgenzola. I didnt regret that. Friendly staff. I spesifically liked that they didnt try to pull me in to their restaurant.... Would come back.

Loved it! Nine of us went here on a Saturday night for a birthday celebration. We had made reservations ahead and were promptly seated in the back , in a private function room. Service was attentive, food was AWESOME. Portions are perfect, not huge pounds of pasta but are certainly not small. Ordered everything from lobster ravioli , Chicken Sorentino,... More

The food was great, the people were very nice, and the service was excellent! We are in NYC a few more days, and we are definitely coming back to Lunella's!

Went again and another and had another good meal. Owner was there and tends to be overbearing to the customers, but we will go back.

The fine Italian restaurants in Little Italy, NYC, are wall to wall. You probably can't go wrong with any of them. This one just happens to be our favorite. The motif, the music, the old world waiter....and the food. Everything home made, the gnocchi, the pasta, the meatballs, the bread. We ate and drank everything in site and the bill... More

We allowed ourselves to be guided in here by a member of staff as we sauntered past. It was very cold, we were very tired and we were hungry so we didn't take much persuading to sit somewhere warm and eat. The food was beautiful, the staff could not have been nicer and the restaurant is lovely. However, it is... More

Nice atmosphere and good food. After subtile hints from our waiter we added a great coldplatter to share and with it a faboluos red italian White. And at the end a courtesy grappa for The road.

Last month my husband and I choose this restaurant for dinner out of all of the other restaurants in Little Italy and we weren't disappointed. Friendly staff, clean facility, and wonderful food. My husband had the Spaghetti Carbanarra and I had the Lobster Ravioli, both wonderfully, delicious choices. The food portions were perfect, not too much, though just enough. We... More

We were there with the entire family (6 of us). The restaurant has great people, ambiance and the food was great. The only negative was the portion size was a little small. If you leave an Italian restaurant you should not be still a little bit hungry. We ordered apps, salads and main course. I would go back again!

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.
