It looks tiny and unassuming but its not!

After a failed attempt to get a table at Lombardi's (queue around the block) I headed to the next block to find somewhere to eat and to get out of the rain. The fresh pasta and pesto and a glass of wine accompanied by a basket of the clearly home made bread was just what the doctor ordered for... read more

Loved the polenta with poached eggs but the service was really poor. If you are not hung up on service go for it, you won't be disappointed.

A great place to nurse a bottle of red wine with some good pasta! Party of 3 on a Sunday night seated straight away. Good, attentive service although only accepting cash for some reason. We all enjoyed! Would go again!

Went for brunch, Sunday morning, and ordered an omelet and poached eggs in polenta. I have to say that the omelet was lovely, served with a tasty salad and fried potatoes. The poached eggs were perfect served with mushroom and tomatoes in a bowl of polenta and tasted superb. Really enjoyed and would order again. The service on the other... More

Visited recently with some family who were visiting. Service was pretty poor - my coffee spilt all over the saucer as the waiter put it down and he didn't apologise or bother to clean it up. The cappuccino was truly terrible too. Everything we ordered was fine but not great, and for what we paid, not good value for money.

Stumbled upon this restaurant. Good italian food. Fresh. Our waiter was a socializer right in front of us when we asked for the check- but he did bring our food out rather quickly. We would recommend this place to couples- don't bring children here.

Had lunch here with a friend. What a great find! It is a little cafe- cute decor, great service. All the food coming out looked good. The sardine panini was wonderful. My friends salad with tuna was delicious. Good prices, great food.

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
