“Best food in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

If your looking for good food at a very good price in NYC this is the place. I rate this a 5 star. I go each time I'm in New York and have never had a bad dinner, this is a family owned and run restaurant , you will feel like you have just steeped back in time with all the old paintings , very cool place . So go and enjoy the best food in the city.

“heaven for your tongue in little italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

we went here this week and was met at the door by the owner. he asked us what foods we liked and we said everything. he told us to put down the menus and he would take care of us. he then brought out dish after dish of the best, the most succulent, the most devinely flavorful shrimp, crab, stuffed pasta, ravioli, and vegetables we have ever had in an italian restaurant. the wines were equally superb. this place was worth our whole trip to new york

“Great parking and customer service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Little Italy is a great place to visit and enjoy the many restaurants. We come every year and enjoy the family owned cozy place. The parking is right next door but not free ($12) get parking card stamped. So this is great not worrying about parking on the street or far away from the restaurant. The owners were very accommodating when they first placed us in the back room with a noisy group. We were immediately switched to a quieter front location.

A nice selection of Italian food the wine, homemade ravioli and desserts were very good. The service was top notch! I loved the time we were leaving to close the place down and the owner and workers finally sit down to eat together at the end of the night! Arrivadella!

“Classic New York Italian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

I visited this Restuarant as a part of a tour I was taking in the area. As you enter the Restuarant you feel liking you are stepping back in time. The Restuarant has a cosy atmosphere and is very Italian. There is a Bar on one side and dining on the other. After struggling to select something from their extensive menu I ended up taking the waiter's recommendation on one of the daily specials. The meal was simply excellent.
