As a Mediterranean person, I had to make the "pilgrimage" to Little Italy while in NYC. I initially had planned to go to the number one Little Italy recommendation from TA, but when it was fully booked out (due to being a tiny place), I picked Caffe Napoli based on the fact that it was one of the busiest places...

Greta food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. A really popular restaurant, but food is excellent, and service couldn't be faulted. Pasta was fresh and perfect and house wine tasty well priced. Cannoli not the best I've had, but not bad.

I came to the restaurant with my family on Christmas eve and I've loved the place. They have a lunch menu with great prices and the chicken parmigiana was amazing!!! My parents ordered the lasagna and my brother the marinara pasta and they were pretty awesome too!!! Very cozy place with fair price and delicious food!

This place has top notch food. When you are walking by and need somewhere to eat this should be your place. The service was good and the food was delicious. This is a must eat.

Rave reviews all the way around. I had coffee. There were a few teas and a few glasses of wine. Ticket was $50. Great price for excellent... More

Food was distinctly average but worst of all was the service, awful service, never asked if we wanted a drink, never checked if meal was ok, never asked if we required more drinks, never asked if we would like dessert, wrong bill, no one...

My husband and I wanted to try something different and we were in the area and what not better than authentic Italian food. Do not waste your time! The place is super crowded and the service is horrible. We ordered the insalata caprese....you could have made this at home....literally! Next we ordered a Margherita pizza. that was the only thing... 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.
