One of the best Osso Buco I ever tasted, and I am very often i Italy. The gnocci made in restaurant was heaven. Very nice place that of course cost.

We ate here on one of our outings in this part of the city, and I wish we would have picked another place. The lunch specials were a bit pricey compared to the other cafes along Mulberry, but it was rainy and we sat down anyway to get out of the weather. We waited for them to take our order,... More

Decided to go outside and eat on Mulberry street with my co-workers. Picked Caffe Napoli as nice outside seating an open air feel that reminded me of Rome. we all enjoyed our meals ( cavatelli and pizza were excellent ) and a they served a nice house Montepulciano. Perfect day and meal.

Our first night in Little Italy, we stopped here because the menu was interesting. We requested an interior table as it was very cool that night. The waiter who took our order could have smiled at least once. We requested flat water and were given a bottle of mineral water instead. The Calimar Fritti was pretty good as an entree.... More

My family and I stopped here for lunch in Little Italy on 29 of July. it was around 13:30. Everyone ordered pasta except I ordered the salad from the daily specials. It was a salad with cabbage, walnuts and blue cheese. Half an hour after the meal I started feeling sick. At the beginning it was just nausea and abdominal... More

We stopped only for an espresso, which wasn't good at all. We spent 15$ for 4 espressos. I do not recommend it.

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.
