Three of us had the chicken parm, which was one of the least expensive on the street, and it was absolutely amazing. Yes its just chicken parm, but it really was addicting. Every detail was perfect. Fresh fresh fresh ingredients.

We happened across this restaurant by accident and what a find. The staff were lovely and the food was amazing I had cheese ravioli and my mum had lasagne. If we can find it again we are definitely going back. Our waiter was fantastic I'm really sorry though I never got his name

Amazing service. Clean. And great food. Not to mention they have gluten free pasta. A visit from the Italian owner made this a great experience. Thank you Lunella! One of little Italy's finest.

Little Italy has many food choices. My wife and 10 year old visited on an ideal summer night. The adults had salads all three of us had pasta dishes. Our daughter rated her fettuccine alfredo a 10. Mom and dad's dishes, a gnocchi in cheese sauce and pasta with vegetables, were a 8.5. The adult dishes were good and properly... More

Absolutely delicious, authentic Italian Restaurant. Outside seating, great wine in addition to the food. Less expensive than some of the restaurants in Little Italy! The owner Lunella is there making customers feel welcome. I'd go back tomorrow if I could, but Florida is a bit far for that. Walking distance from many hotels...

Me and my family ate lunch at this resturant. It was defenently not a good experience. The lasagne looked like it was cooked in the microwave, the waiter was rude and smelled of alcohol. This place has bad overpriced food and a horrible staff. Don't go here.

My daughter and I each had the Fettucine Alfredo. We both liked it a lot. The oil and bread were alright. We still had a piece of bread left that we might have eaten but then the waiter took the oil off our table and gave it to another table. After lingering for some time, I had to finally ask... More

Very attentive service. Willing to clean table right away for us. My husband had the veal and I had the lasagna. Very delicious but did leave still hungry.

We stopped by and was greeted and sat on the sidewalk. The appetizer was wonderful and the lunch was one of the best meals that we had. I would recommend this to anyone. Reasonable price and the food was fresh and great. See Lunella while you are there, she was very nice person.

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.
