Visited this restaurant with friends. All the dishes we ordered were delicious and the service was great. Definitely recommend it. Portion size was huge. Good value for money

Having never been to Little Italy before, I was very happy that we chose this restaurant for my first time. I had the lobster ravioli. Even though it wasn't as warm as I had anticipated, it was still delicious. As was the bottle of wine...More

So many choices in Little Italy but this is a standout. Cozy atmosphere, good service and most of all superior food. We lived in Italy for 3 years and love insalata di mare- marinated seafood salad- and theirs is delicious and authentic. Pasta was excellent...More

I’d been waiting a year to come back and try their gnocchi which was just as amazing as last time. The only problem was, the atmosphere just wasn’t the same. The music was ordinary and after what was average/basic service, charged $35 for a bottle...More

We’ve been here twice now and both times we’ve shared 3 different dishes. Each one has been delicious! The restaurant itself is cosy and warm, with an Italian feel except they weren’t playing Italian music which would’ve topped it off. I haven’t been to other...More

Normal restaurant. Food is ok like in many italian restaurants. There is no pizza. Only pasta but many different types. Many other restaurants in little italy are probably better

After being basically bombarded walking down Mulberry street dealing with people trying to get you into their restaurant, we finally decided on Lunella only because the prices weren't as high as the other places. And the guy outside wasn't quite as annoying either. Despite the...More

Took a chance because we were hungry and they didn't do that aggressive crap to talk you into coming inside like some of these places have adopted. The wait staff was great. No rushing, like in Italy. Before ordering the two small plates and wine,...More

Me and my friends had the same problem with the waiter, when we asked him about the 18% tip, he got mad and was very disrespectful the way he talked to us. Menu says 18% service charge will be added if parties of 6 or...More

There are a number of warning signs the expert, OR casual, diner should look out for when looking for a restaurant off the street. No reviews and no other major indicators but you are driven by your hunger and the need to sit down after...More

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
