Our Little Italy Food Tasting Tour was a great way to experience an historic part of NYC. Our guide Vincent kept our group of 11 entertained and well fed as we walked many of the streets along Mulberry Street. We enjoyed sponge cake, two kinds of cannoli, gnocchi, cheeses, proscuitto, and, of course, NY-style pizza. Along the way, Vincent used authentic local accent to tell us stories of gangsters and historic places where cheeses and pasta have been made for years, along with historic churches and stores and restaurants that we recognized from well-known films and TV shows. He dropped many famous names and left us so full that we cancelled our dinner reservations. We highly recommend it.

My husband is Italian and wanted to visit little Italy on our trip to New York City. It was just before a festival so there was a lot of decorations around. We ate a delicious pizza and calzone lunch at Lombard’s Pizzeria and walked around a bit. It was very enjoyable.

The place we stopped in Soho was very small, but pizza was good. The accommodations were a bit dirty looking, else I would have rated it higher. Typical NYC pizza. Always love pizza!

Every shop and restaurant along the street is great! The food is authentic and amazing! The shops have pride in their heritage! The streets are vibrant and cultural! I would say that this is as close to Italy as you get in America. I highly recommend a visit. You won’t regret it!

I love love love Little Italy in NYC. It’s, perhaps, my favorite community in NYC. I enjoy the restaurants, the small stores, the atmosphere on the streets and the decorations in the stores and street lights.

It’s a family friendly safe area which harkens back to traditional times.

Go enjoy

I used to love going to Little Italy, but I seriously doubt I'll be back. Most restaurants have a troll standing out front literally harassing you to go inside the restaurant. I was accosted by one restaurant and just kept saying no thank you so the nasty man called me a prostitute. I just kept on moving. The shops are all cheap and tacky souvenir shops. Most restaurants are not graded an A so if you don't see an A, keep moving. The only places I can recommend are the Cigar Bar, awesome bartender, staff and very clean. I could also recommend Vincents Clam Bar. Otherwise I would steer clear of this cesspool of degenerates.

We started in little Italy greeted by restaurants. Every step of the way we could choose a quinine of Italy. Shop after shop we found fun kitschy New York memorabilia. The food experience is worth making the trip. Tons of food and a few bakeries. Be sure to have cash on hand as some places requires cash and you may miss out on something authentic and delicious.

Little Italy was on my to do list to get a taste of authentic New York. We walked from the financial district and passed impressive architecture on the way. Little Italy was quaint and okay to walk around. We decided to stop by one of the restaurants and ate inside. I had pasta and my wife had ceaser salad and asked for chicken with it. It wasn't until we ordered I saw that a 20 per cent gratuity would be added. Although the food was okay I felt at 92 dollars for a salad pasta and two drinks was a bit much. Compared to other parts of the city it was twice as expensive. We walked on and my wife spotted a rat running into the bags of rubbish left beside an eating area. Between that and the meal kind of spoiled the experience. I realse things are more expensive but feel I was ripped off. Long story short visit walk around eat elsewhere.

Little Italy is turning into a non-Italian souvenir shop street. It's still a unique stroll. The restaurant we went to was very average.

If you are in the area definitely stop and get a meal. The food is amazing and won't disappoint. There are a lot of outdoor options as well.
