Went with the family on a recent stay in NYC. The food was fantastic! Service was great. Server was knowledgeable and very accommodating. Reasonably priced and kid friendly. Originally we were going to Pellegrinos (next door) but they had some plumbing issues, so we were encouraged by the management to go here (I think they have the same owner).

I went here on the recommendation of a friend, and I was so glad that I did! A host greeted my party immediately when we walked in, and he led us to a table right away. The restaurant was packed and very lively. The staff were attentive, and offered wine suggestions for meal pairings. I had the veal parmigiana, and... More

Set in Little Italy this lively restaurant was a pleasure to go to. The food was excellent; freshly made, very tasty and plentiful. The service was quick, friendly and entertaining. The only negative was if you were aiming for a quiet romantic dinner for two, then this would not be a good choice. It is quite crowded and you can... More

Great Lunch, nice people and cold beer, really what more could you ask for. The food was delicious. The staff were wonderful, friendly and the service was excellent. Finish that off with a couple of cold italian brewskies and a chat. This is a great place for a nice Italian lunch. Definitely go back. Prices very reasonable.

I have eaten here several times over the years. It consistently has great food and service. It has a small dining room with the tables closely situated. The servers are Italian gentleman. They are helpful, attentive and charming. The three of us each ordered different pasta dishes. They were all delicious. The portions are very generous. This was my niece's... More

Wanting to eat a meal in Little Italy on our recent vacation, we hopped off at the Gray Line bus stop for Chinatown and made our way to Paesano. It was a fun walk past the vendors of Chinatown and onto Mulberry Street. Paesano is cozy and quaint with good service and good food. It's not super fancy, but it's... More

After a morning walking thru New York, we were ready for a hearty meal. We had seen reviews on this place and checked the menu board out front and decided this was worth a try. We couldn't have been more pleased. We had the ravioli and lasagna and were both extremely happy with out meals. The service was outstanding without... More

In January 2017, my friends (business contact and his wife) from China met me near Little Italy for lunch. It was pouring rain and windy. My original restaurant choices were not open for lunch. By chance a "hawker" for lack of better word invited us to try Paesano. I looked at the menu and it seemed reasonable so we went... More

We read amazing reviews so perhaps we built this place up in our minds. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms as an app and they seemed premade/frozen My husband ordered the manicotti and said it was just like the mushrooms. I ordered the shrimp fra diavoli and it was very good. Getting seated was a bit chaotic but service was excellent.

Thank Jessica E
Management response:

It's disappointing that you weren't impressed with some of your dishes, Jessica. Although we prepare each dish fresh, it's a shame the mushrooms and manicotti gave you any reason to think otherwise. At the least, we're glad the Shrimp Fra Diavolo was delicious, and we hope you make it back soon for another try. All the best, The Team at... 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.
