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!

My partner and I were strolling through Little Italy and decided to pop in. We were greeted with a brief history of the place by the guy at the entrance who advised us it is family run. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant, ensuring we had everything we needed and also offering water. My meal of gnocchi with gorgonzola and... More

From the moment you arrive it's an experience. The restaurant is everything you would expect from an Italian restaurant the wait staff is very attentive to your needs. The pasta is made fresh and melts in your mouth.The desserts were also very good. The prices are in line with the other restaurants on the street.I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

We had an enjoyable dinner. My husband and I enjoyed the food but the servings were on the smaller size. We started by sharing a Caesar salad- $9- not really big enough to share. I had the chicken Marsala - it came with some vegetables and a few roasted potatoes. It was very tasty but again the serving was on... More

On a recent trip to New York we came across Lunella's whilst wondering through Little Italy. After a quick chat with a very friendly waiter we decided to have lunch, the staff were so friendly even offering to make things that were not on the menu, nothing was to much trouble. During our meal we got chatting to the owner... More

stopped off here for a meal one day whilst wandering through little italy. We found it by chance as we were looking for a resturant that had tables free. This one happened to have one so we ate here. The staff were all very friendly, attentive and good at their jobs. The food was excellent, cannot fault it at all.... More

We had out of town guests and wanted to eat in Little Italy. Frequently, I have found the restaurants there disappointing, presumably because they are more for tourists than anyone else. Lunella was a pleasant surprise. We had a pasta, a veal, and a rabbit dish and all were excellent. The caprese salad had very fresh and tasty tomato even... More
