We were on holiday in NY last year, and couldn't not go to the different subarbs, Little Italy is exactly that, full of Italian shops and restaurants, very authentic and it gave the sense that you were in Italy without having to actually go to Italy. I loved how proud the Italians were of there little place in New York... More

It's good to see this part of NY, to see what is deemed as Little Italy. Not necessarily the place to get the best Italian, but interesting to know the history behind the district more than anything else. Come by, cruise through the streets and continue to see other things this great city has to offer.

We stopped by there on our recent trip to NYC. The roads were closed to traffic and we just strolled around looking in the souvenir shops, ate at a restaurant and enjoyed seeing all the art work with the Little Italy Street Art(LISA) Project. Parking may be difficult, but we found something over by Chinatown.

We visited Little Italy this past trip and have never made it over to this part of the city. It is not far from China Town which is incredibly dirty and seemingly unsafe. This is a place that was fun to walk and I could spend many days enjoying the food and atmosphere. This area is kid friendly without.

I enjoyed my walk through Little Italy...if in New York one should definitely take a couple hours to experience the crowded streets, curb side restaurants, open markets and wholesale stores.

This is a fun stop when visiting NY. The area is lined with Italian restaurants and people eating under the umbrellas. You can still hear a few people speaking in Italian. There is an Italian Museum and you must stop in one of the Italian grocery deli stores to pick up some salami. Lots of restaurant choices and the area... More

visited Little Italy on our last night in New York city. The street was blocked off to traffic around 6pm and the tables are moved out on to the sidewalk. The atmosphere was fantastic, its a great neighbourhood. The restaurant we chose Sophia's served fantastic pasta, wine and service.

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.
