Only okay

I've been to little Italy many times before and this restaurant was the most disappointing. It is OKAY. The pizza is very good but the service is lacking and the wine list is very underwhelming. That being said the patio is great and right in the heart of this awesome district.

Loved this resturant in Little Italy. The waiters were so nice. Try the manicotti the couple next to my table could not stop raving about it and it looked really good. The Caesar salad was fresh and good for a hot summer day and dine on the patio so you can people watch.

Awesome spot! Incredible service, good price point. Ask for Nino, he is the best! The pastas with red sauce are excellent. So is the seafood. Whatever you do, try the turamisu, it is out of this world good. I recently came back from Italy and this place encompasses the food experience there with true Italian cooking, made with love and...

This Italian restaurant has great turamisu, the service is outstanding and the staff is very friendly and the prices are good for if you are on a budget. The spaghetti pescatore is amaaaaazing and they gave a lot of great fresh seafood dishes. The Alfredo sauce is nice and has a creamy texture- perfect for any NY winter day!!!!

The place is not bad and the food depends on what you order. Do not order pizza!!! Frozen base, small and not nice. Pasta is ok. As soon as one of the persons eating finishes they take the plate away, something that I hate!! When you all finish they rush you to go. They take everything from the table and... More

I had heard so much about this restaurant and because I LOVE Italian foods, I decided to give it a try. The atmosphere was a pleasant one and I was very fortunate to have a very courteous waiter. I was in the mood for seafood so we opted for the Aragosta Alla Pescatore with the white sauce. The flavors of... More

The food was very good although the waiter didn't want to spend much time telling us about it. He was a little snippy and acted like he was too good for us! Other than that, we had a great time. It is a little pricey for the amount you get. The atmosphere was great - felt very authentic Italian!

Firstly, this restaurant has by far the best curb appeal than any other restaurant on Mulberry St. Beautiful open doors give the restaurant a great summery vibe. Perfect for families and couples new to the city and looking for an amazing lunch or dinner of authentic Italian food. Their sauce is the best I've ever had and recommend that everyone... 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.
