While a walk in Little Italy I heard about this place as having good pizza so I said I'll give it a shot. The inside looks more like a cafeteria, not like an Italian restaurant. However, I have asked for a Margherita Pizza but I...More

One of the best pizzas that I’ve had. Fairly basic interior more cafe than restaurant. Top marks. Great coffee.

Can't vouch for authenticity, but it was delicious. Staff was very friendly, and aside from a couple to-go orders, we had the whole place to ourselves for about an hour.

The chicken fettuccine alfredo was probably the best I’ve ever tasted. The pizza was fantastic, too. The crust was perfect. The people were very friendly and spent time getting to know us. We loved it.

Great place for my family to get out of the cold. Pasta was excellent! Noodles were perfectly cooked. Pizza was pretty good too. Reasonable prices and no annoying guy out front of this place trying to drag you in. Calzone was a little skimpy on...More

The shrimp francese with broccoli rabe was to die for. We topped it off with a nice bottle of Malbec. The music induced a wonderful romantic ambience.

The Spag Bol was absolutely to die for and the pizzas are probably the best I tasted on my visit to NYC. A really nice and casual spot, perfect after a busy day of sight seeing in NYC! Staff were lovely and helpful also !

This is a nice place to enjoy great Italian pizza! We tried the classic pizza and 2 pasta dishes, 50$ all. Ambience is not that nice but food is decent and with good portions . I would go again for pizza!

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

Il Piccolo Bufalo is a Trattoria with a modern spacious exposed-brick walled indoor dining room and inviting outdoor cafe with a comfortable relaxed atmosphere.
It features a diverse menu of traditional neapolitan cuisine and pizzas prepared in an open brick oven. The dishes are both modern and authentic, featuring most of the delectable favorites such as stuffed artichoke, spaghetti & meatballs, sunday gravy...... and other recipes the grandparents of the owner brought with them from Naples when they settled on Mulberry Street after emigrating from Naples in the early 20th century.
