Dined here with a larger group - 8 on Thursday night. A place will automatically win points in my book if they accommodate a large group with no reservations, late night. We walked in around 10pm and were greeted with nothing but warmth. I think it helped that most of the people in our party spoke French! I loved the... More

A party of 6 dropped in for breakfast and it was the best breakfast we had in NYC. The waitress was friendly and the food was very good. A must eat if you're in the area

Back at last....3 years ago that I had the best eggs Benedict ever at Fiat cafe. Not the usual tourist trap joint but a true genuine gem. Don't forget to bring $ because it's a "cash only" place.

We were only in New York for 3 days, and wanted every meal to be as good as possible. We were staying near Little Italy and looking for a place for breakfast. We were fortunate enough to stumble upon the Fiat Cafe, and it was incredible. The restaurant itself is very small and cozy, with a Fiat-centric decor. They have... More

Been here several times and today was another winner! Breakfast served until 4pm, so delicious - great flavors, fresh ingredients and people that care about the experience you have at their Cafe. You will be NOT disappointed at this little gem on Mott at Spring.

Food here is phenomenal! Panini's are like nowhere else! Don't search no more for a place to eat just go to Fiat cafe seriously! They have brunch menu, lunch menu. Food here is simple but seriously delicious for reasonable prices. To be honest I was kind of hesitant when I saw that no one working in the place is Italian... More

My party of four, including a 3 year old, went to this little place next to Lombardis Pizza when we discovered a long, Friday night line for Lombardis. Hostess could not have been more accommodating, seating us immediately. Prices were very reasonable for New York, and while not Michelin star worthy, our veal parmesan and lasagna were quite satisfying. I... More

Super cosy and appealing Italian restaurant. Interior very rustic, pasta servings ample and delicate and the overall service super. Went there for dinner, but am sure that they do an equally excellent job both morning and midday. Nice place!

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
