This was our first visit. First it's bound by so many Chinese shops it feels to be losing its character. Honestly it Lacked and authentic feel to us. It honestly just felt like a touristy place no longer an actual Italian community. We went to a couple different restaurants and both just felt bland and more like and assembly line... More

One of our go-to's every trip into the city. We usually stay in the bar and have a couple of cocktails. We always end up meeting nice people and having a great time. The staff is friendly, and the food is good. It's not like most of little Italy, where they herd you in and out like cattle.

What can one say about Little Italy....fabulous resturants, quaint part of NYC. And to be there for the feast of San Generio ( even though it is a bit crowed) it is worth the visit. The foods are mouth watering!

The quarter Little Italy is located between Canal St and Kenmare St and not far away from the Broadway. Plenty of Chinese shops, markets and restaurants are located in the neighborhood. The crossing is fluent and appears strange to me. Little Italy itself attempts to be authentic Italian. To me authenticity is not given. Dishes are very expensive.

Great location! We knew we wanted to eat pizza of course but there are so many places to chose from that it is quite difficult! So we decided to share the love! We stopped at 3 places! Haha! First stop we shared a pasta and drinks. We walked a little and then decided to share another pasta and drinks. Last... More

I have strolled through Little Italy several times on trips to New York and if you are looking for some cannolli or a place to hear "fu-getta-bout-it" this is the place. Lots of neighborhood regulars mixed with tourists. Great destination for a meal and some wine.

I enjoyed the afternoon I spent here. There are a lot of great restaurants, markets and stores to experience. There is also a lot of interesting history in this neighborhood. John Gotti's former social club, the Ravenite, is on Mulberry street (now called Cydwq shoes).

Loved the outdoor cafes that line both sides of Mulberry Street -- however the day I was there was too cold to dine al fresco. We dined at Sofia's -- and was not disappointed.

It's nice to stroll in the streets of Little Italy a visit a different country inside of manhattan. This is a good place to get some Italian style pizza, although I like the New York style better.

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.
