This is a gem in the middle of Little Italy. Authentic Italian food with great service. Food was excellent and the wine was good. I did make reservations and it was crowded.

we had very good pastas here, arrabiata, carbonara, tortellini. the pinot grigio was below standard, poor quality. some the waiters were a bit grumpy and did not show a lot of interest. a 10% tax plus a close to 20% service charge we put on the bill. overcharhed to my opinion.

We wandered in for a late lunch and had a delicious meal with excellent service. The staff was very friendly, and the Lasagna al Forno was amazing! Our son had the Penne all Arrabiata. It was spicy, as advertised, and he loved it. My husband and daughter both had the Spaghetti Bolognese. My husband commented that he thought it was... More

Loved everything about this restaurant. The decorations, the Christmas music playing, our table next to the window. Our food was delicious. The bread, the salad, my spaghetti with shrimp and vodka sauce, and my husbands lasagna. Can't say enough good things. Staff was very helpful and looked like they were all helping each other. Only place to eat in Little... More

We were lucky to get a patio table on a busy, beautiful night so that was a large part of the experience. The food was OK, my husband had Lasagna which he thought was good and I had 2 appetizers calamari, which I think were frozen and a stuffed artichoke that was heavy with bread but not much flavor. The... More

My husband and I ate here last Friday night and both ordered one of the specials. The food was delicious and plentiful. I would have given a full 5 stars but my gnocchi was luke warm and definitely not hot.

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

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood 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.
