Always fun to sit on the sidewalk in Little Italy and watch and listen as the world goes buy! Lunella's makes it that much more fun. Excellent service, try the cold antipasto, the delicious osso bucco, shrimp limone, shrimp Mediterranean small portion though. Relaxing, good food reasonable pricing, good kid friendly service, charming owner. Wine list is standard and priced... More

This place was excellent in every way. Great outdoor seating and location right on Mulberry. The street is blocked off on the weekend so you can walk through the downtown little italy and stop right in. Staff were super friendly. Food was AMAZING. I got the fettucine rosanna. Perfect. Ate around 7:30 with minimal wait just to get the outdoor... More

We started off be being hurried into the restaurant by an very encouraging waiter. He touted the authenticity of the restaurant and the quality of the food. "No pizza". He exclaimed, which was fine. We sat at a quaint table outside on the street and waited, and waited, and waited. Twenty minutes later we got water and menus. Should have... More

I went with my family. The food and service was very good. They have an outstanding Spaghetti Carbonara. The fried calamari sauce was also outstanding.

The food was delicious. I had chicken with artichokes and my fiancé had ravioli. It was real Italian and not too touristy.

Face it - you are in Little Italy amongst dozens of options. There is definitely a get them in and get them out mentality and little in the way of differentiation. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that several of the restaurants are owned by the same folks. I knew this going in and wasn't disappointed. The food was... More

Tried this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. So glad I did. The waiter was very nice to us. We needed to charge our cell phones and he went as far as getting a table ready next to an outlet for us. The food was devine. I tried the Gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. Best gnocchi I have ever had...

We would have gone to a number of places, however this place looked like it had nice atmosphere and a variety of dishs at reasonable prices. We went to be seated and the waiters divided up a larger table set and made a spot for... More
