Just don't...

If you like Ragu out of a jar, then this is the place for you. However, we were tired and hungry and just wanted a decent meal that wasn't fast food. This was slow, fast food with an extra side of a rude waiter.

I don't usually write a bad review unless I think others should be warned about something... so CHECK YOUR BILL BEFORE LEAVING A TIP. When the bill came, the 20% tip was included in the total. Because they were putting away the tables on the street, we rushed to go and added a tip to the total (which already included... More

This is an overpriced tourist trap. We tried two different pizzas and they were at best average. We had caprese for starter and it was bland. Will not visit again.

Travelled to Little Italy in my second night in NYC and found this little gem on Mulberry Street. Service from the start was excellent, the staff couldn't do more for us. I ordered the calamari for starter which was very good but the Strozzapetti Gambiri I had for main was magnificent. Food prices very reasonable also. Thoroughly recommend.

After wandering along Mulberry Street taking in the sights, we were met by a wise guy out the front declaring this 80 year old restaurant was John Gotti's favourite. Sounded plausible...and we were hungry...and how could we go wrong in an Italian Restaurant in Little Italy, NYC...right?! Should have checked Trip Advisor first.... After being seated we were left alone,... More

Service in this restaurant is poor. There's a guy at the door getting everyone in but after that, you are practically ignored. The food is okay but there are many much better restaurants in Little Italy.

If you do not have good service or quality, there is no reason to be in business. We made the mistake of ignoring all of the bad reviews in Yelp and paid for it. A group of us (six) were seated promptly to an outdoor table (which no other restaurants in the area could do due to being so busy... More

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.
