I was so excited to go to little Italy in the Bronx, but I was not impressed when I finally got there. I much prefer little Italy in Boston, and also Toronto and Montreal. I am sure it was great back in the day, but it’s no longer what I would expect. If you’re looking for really nice bakeries and restaurants in New York, try Brooklyn in the Carroll Gardens area.

Great old place to visit and help keep it going. Please help keep these long time food and gift shops going. Visit the old Little Italy feeling and keep old things alive and historic. Mom N Pop shops are friendly, kind and full of history. You don't need to be Italian to see and explore Little Italy and this beautiful market.
God Bless America and God Bless Little Italy.

Some of the best Italian food you can get! My favorite, ravioli. However, it does not stop there. Desserts along the strip are amazingly good too!
Parking is a problem, as always, but go further down the streets to find it or use a parking garage. Just be patient, it's worth it..

Had a really great time. Some of the best pizza I've had since living in NY. Had pizza with truffles which was a first. Very nice community and friendly residents. The B12 or 22 bus stop is within walking distance. Can't wait till next year.

I've been to LIttle Italy in Manhatten many times. Recently I ended up in the Bronx. Wow. Now that's Italian. The variety of fresh meats, the aged meats, the cheese, the pasta, the olives......... even cigar rollers. It blew me away. And the food...... Can't wait to go back.

Forget Manhattan. The last US census showed ZERO Italians living in that zip code. Arthur Avenue in the Bronx in New York's real Little Italy. It not be so twenty years from now, but take advantage of it now. Too many great restaurants to list. You pretty much cannot go wrong with any of them. Grocery shopping is a steal. Prices are half of other parts of New York and the quality and selection are wonderful.

For many visitors to New York City, their only foray into The Bronx will be to visit Bronx Zoo or the nearby New York Botanical Gardens, to go to a game at The Yankee Stadium. It’s previous reputation as an area for gang activities and poverty stricken neighbourhoods has shifted considerable In recent years, and the borough has witnessed significant development. Still, visitors are wary, and very reticent to step away from these three main attractions and to explore a bit further afield.

One area of The Bronx which should be visited is Little Italy which stretches along Arthur Avenue in the Belmont district of The Bronx. An authentic Italian culture thrives here, and creates a truly vibrant community within the wider area of The Bronx, and it deserves a visit. Little Italy sustains a thriving business district that includes excellent restaurants, high-quality artisanal food shops, and specialty stores carrying handmade local and imported items that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Charming old-world ambiance emanates from the generations of Italian families who continue to give the area a welcoming small-town character that is unique for an urban setting.

Just wander the stretch between E Fordham Road and E 183rd Street. There are some great coffee shops serving excellent coffee (unlike many other parts of New York City), some decent bakeries for your ciabatta and focaccia , and numerous restaurants for a bite to eat. You’ll find some really good fish and meat markets, as well as a number go delicatessens for your olives, preserved meats and cheeses. Explore some of the side streets Arthur Avenue and you you’ll discover other things, such as the lovely Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.

As with visiting any new area, you need to use the same "street smart" mentality and common sense you would use where you come from.

I really enjoyed seeing and experiencing this vibrant neighbourhood; I found it more authentic than the ‘Little Italy’ neighbourhood in Manhattan.

Food, food, food! Delicious..Authentic Italian. We go very often. All prices - nice sit-down restaurants, pizza, delis,, coffee (expresso and cappuccino) and pastries, clam bars, a large market with a beer hall. Specialty food stores for cheese,(Casa de Mozzarella, Calandras) fresh pasta, produce, all Italian ingredients,(Teitels) bread, Italian cooking utensils and appliances. We actually met a couple visiting from Italy who loved it. Reasonable prices. Near the Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Garden (great places to visit) and we often combine them with Arthur Ave. Check the hours. Some stores may be closed Sunday and Monday. See the diversity of NYC. Fun and festive.

Authentic Italian food all within walking distance to Botanical Garden. Each restaurant is better than the next. Loved trying the coffee houses and dining alfresco. Worth a visit. I felt like I was in Italy yet so close to home. Excellent food.
