We stopped in here after a visit to the WTC Museum & Memorial. I picked this spot because they had lunch specials! My long time (10+ years) favorite Italian joint on Mulberry has been Lunella Ristorante, but on this trip I wanted to spread my...More

We came for lunch after looking for a place to eat in Little Italy. Service was attentive and helpful. Restaurant was spacious and clean. Food was good but uninspiring.

This has been my fourth time eating here and the food is always delicious! I would definitely make a reservation for the “garden room” when planning your visit. It is the best dining atmosphere in Little Italy! If you have to wait a few mins...More

I really like this restaurant. The Service was great! Drinks were so good! I had the Spaghettini puttanesca, it was very good. My mom had Mussels Fra Diavolo, the sauce was so good! I would definitely go back again!

It was raining and we were soaked and the kind staff gave us some towels. Great 1st impression. We sat in the sunroom type area and it was beautiful and relaxing. The food was great. Again very nice staff.

We thought the food was rather plain. More importantly, we mentioned one of us had gluten and garlic issues, and was told everything was made fresh and could be made to order. Unfortunately, waiter didn't get that message. All sauces already had garlic in it....More

My buddy and I went there for the San gennaros feast and it was pretty warm out that day, but they had tables under a cover which made it manageable. The service was good and the food was average. Overall nothing spectacular.

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
