The pasta is great, no pizza available, large glasses of nice wine for $7, very limited selection of beer. Recommended for a cheap meal before heading off to the bars.

We have been here 3 times over the past 15 years and love coming back to it. It's like going home. We were able to sit in the courtyard each time and enjoy the beautiful weather NYC offers.

I am totally unimpressed with this place. The mozzarella en carozza (sp) was like a sandwich (a thin one) and there wasn't much to it. The chicken parm special is more of a joke. It was hammered so thin we were wondering where the chicken was. Is that because it was the special and it was cheap? I don't know.... More

We have been to Little Italy many times and on this trip ate at Buona Notte. Chicken Marsala was wonderful. My husband had lasagna both were delicious! Check it out!

Little Italy is a must when visiting New york. The restaurants on mulberry street all try to get you to come in and eat. Thus restaurant was excellent. I had the chicken lemon and asked for capers--probably the best I've had. The white sangria was amazing but expensive! The gnocchi was great and the kids had fettuccine alfredo. The portion... More

Ate lunch here after our tour of Little Italy. What a find! We enjoyed outside seating and delicious food. The minestrone soup, gnocchi, and house chianti were tasty. Fun location to people watch while you eat.

The food was ok. The service was ok. Nothing special about this place. Lunch was a bit overpriced and there are no free refills. I was disappointed as I was looking for a Little Italy in Little Italy.

we had spaghetti and 2 glasses of 'homemade sangria' after having seen the prices on a streetside billboard. Once inside, the prices in the menu were a few dollars higher than on that billboard. the food was good, and so was the sangria. but when the bill came, there was an extra amount of over 9 dollars, plus of course...

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.
