I had a large event to attend and wanted some quiet time to unwind in Little Italy. I was craving eggplant parmigiana or pizza and, lo and behold, the two specials offered on the menu were those two items. I stepped inside to this welcoming...establishment, ordered a beer, a meal and then finished it off with an espresso and a cannoli. Definitely one of the highlights of my most recent NYC journey. Great service. The nonstop Frank Sinatra soundtrack was the perfect company.More

We saw a video of Kevin heart rating this pizza place and decided to visit it during our four days in the city. My bf ordered a magarita pizza and I got a seafood linguine. Pizza was good, but extremely cheesy. Haa much cheesier than...any other pizzas we had. I love the seafood linguine, clams and prawns are so huge and fresh, and the linguine was actually really tasty. A little bit too salty but overall I really enjoyed it. The service in there was really good too.More

My son and I stopped at the Il Piccolo Bufalo for dinner one evening. We found the service quite pleasing and eager to serve without being hovered over. The food was outstanding and the portions were large enough to fill us to where no dessert...was needed. I would love to return to this restaurant with my wife in the near future.More

We enjoyed an early dinner with glasses of Chianti, which were generously poured and which we appreciated! We dined on chicken parmsesan and gnocci. The food was tasty. This is a charming little restaurant with a street view. We sat inside that day because it...was a little chilly. The statuary in the windows is interesting!More

We stopped at this place on Saturday during the San Genarro Feast on Mulberry st. After spending so many hours on the street we just wanted to find a place where we could sit down and have a drink. This was the perfect place. We...sat at a high top table and had several beers and wines. The ambiance was great and the staff was quick to take care of us and constantly checked in on us and kept the beers coming. We liked it and it fit our needs for this particular day. We did not dine at the restaurant so I cannot comment on this side of the restaurant.More

We found Il Piccolo Bufalo in NYC’s Little Italy area. We walked several blocks looking at the menus of all the restaurants in the area and decided to try Il Piccolo Bufalo as the had been Zagat rated and the host at the front was...much more polite and not overly aggressive like the other restaurants. The weather had cooled off a bit that day and they had seating outdoors and also offered an early bird special that was still available for us. For our food order, our party of 3 started off with the Caesar salad to share. For entrees, we ordered the Chicken Marsala, the Spaghetti Carbonara and the Chicken Francese which was offered as a special ($14.95 instead of the menu priced $17.95). Our servers were both polite and efficient. We were severed a short time later and e food was very good. We would go here again.More

This is the first restaurant that I selected based on TripAdvisor that I thought was really bad. It had such good ratings and ended up so poor. My husband and I went for an early dinner. The restaurant was just switching over from lunch to...dinner. My husband asked the difference, and we were told the dinner portions are bigger, so the price is a little higher. My husband ordered the lasagna, his favorite. I had the eggplant parm, a special. Service was very slow, even though the restaurant was only about half full. Our food took a long time to arrive. When it came, I tried my meal and the eggplant parm was covered in sauce and cheese, but it tasted burnt . I looked under the sauce and cheese and the breading was black. My face must haves said it all, and the waitress asked if everything was alright. I told her the food tasted burnt, and in fact was burnt. She offered to send it back and get me something else or another of the same. I asked for a non-burnt eggplant parm. As I waited, my husband tried his lasagna. First, it was the smallest piece of lasagna we had ever seen. It was about 2" by 2". No kidding. It was baland and not very good. It was a very small portion for lunch, about 4 bites, and this was the dinner portion. So I got my eggplant parm a second time, and it was good. It was also a small portion. When we finished, the bill was presented. It listed my husband's lasagna, at the dinner price, and two eggplant parms, at the dinner price. We had to call the waitress over. At that point, we had only seen her to order-after sitting about 15 minutes, and when the first food was delivered and I had to send back the eggplant. Now she brought the check. She never checked on my meal after it was brought out again. We asked what the third meal was and she apologized and removed it. We left the restaurant still hungry and about $50 lighter than when we entered. I would not recommend this place at all. Crappy wait staff, extremely small portions, and not well prepared food.More

It could be but that is also the description for dozens of restaurants in Little Italy. Try this one - it's very good!
