Right, if you want space and polish this is not the place for you. If you don't mind dining in what feels like someone's lounge with hustle and bustle and noisy intimacy then book now. Amazing, authentic food, great wine at a price that doesn't break the bank. We loved it but honestly it is very small so be prepared... More

Our party of nine family members were easily accommodated with reservations at this Sicilian favorite after visiting the nearby WTC. After a little wait we were treated to an excellent and affordable feast of 4 types of bruschetta, mussels, fried mozzarella and yummy pasta dishes; especially recommended are the ravioli with wild boar ragu and mezzaluna ravioli with porcini filling,...

We've been scouring the local area for three days and this is by FAR the best and friendliest place. Gorgeous food (bruschetta, lasagne and egg plant rolls plus delightful Tiramisu). Lovely service!!!

The name means "Tiny", if you want big space, Simply don't choose this. Despite the plase's dimensions it was a very good experience. Both lunch and dinner, because we came twice. I suggest orecchiette bufala and pomodoro, very nice taste. The particular thing is that you can eat from very nice pots. Very nice and fast waitresses, the Chef Federico... More

One of two very close small Sicilian restaurants with similar menu, same name and owners in Soho. Lunch at the Spring location followed the dinner at Prince with a party of 6. Due to the size of the party we got to sample a lot of the starters, pastas, dessert and wine. It is busy, bustling, intimate and the food... More

Its very small and loud...but very cosy and the food is amazing. The service is outstanding and you feel like you are in Italy. If you wanna have a romantic dinner it's probably not the right place but if you just wanna have fun with good food then go there. The daily recommendations are all very good. The Pasta is... More

I have to say..the pasta options all looked great. There's a lot of seafood but I chose the Green Taglietelle in a wild boar ragu with fresh herb aroma topped with black truffle shavings. My stomach is grumbling just remembering it. It's a tiny restaurant so we decided to take it to go. Not sure about the service as we... More

the Spring St location was full on a Sunday night so the staff sent us to their Prince location a block away. we were off with a good start with the appetizers, a fennel salad with orange and a caprese. the pasta had rich sauces but the seafood papardelle did not taste fresh. I did not touch the mussels but... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
