Pasta was OK

A little disappointed in this place. I traveled to little Italy because I assumed their pasta would be the best. This place was mediocre. Everyone in the restaurant spoke Italian though, so the experience felt authentic. Best part of the meal was the caprese salad.

There are several restaurants on Mulberry Street and so there's plenty of competition. Casa Bella has an employee on the street to lure people in with the promise of a good time. Don't be fooled. We ate on a mid-week evening and the restaurant was quiet. The food was ok but nothing remarkable. We were served by several staff and... More

My favorite Italian restaurant ever. The veal sorrentino is delicious. I also recommend having a martini. Can't wait to go back again.

I tried the lasagna followed by tiara masu. Both were as good, if not better, than any that I had while visiting Italy. Wait staff is friendly and willing to make suggestions. Highly recommend stopping here if you are in Little Italy.

Very tasty food, adequate service from snooty waiters. We were here for a late night dinner, but we wanted something light, with not a lot of alcohol. They sniffed when I ordered only a salad for dinner. Then protested when we ordered just a half bottle of wine for the two of us. Sigh. However the flambeed veal with a... More

I had an amazing lunch in 'Little Italy' in NYC. Freshly made in-house pasta for all their dishes. Fantastic selection of wines. The patio is amazing for people watching as it is located right where 'Little Italy' and 'China Town' transition. They have their regular menu as well as a lunch special that includes your of entree, main, and desert.... More

This is one of our favorite al fresco dining experiences in Little Italy. Its got a comfortable family feel with excellent food. We come back over and over again. Their veal chop is amazing.

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.
