I use to visit Little Italy in the 70's and 80's. It appears to be getting smaller and the atmosphere has changed. Located next to Chinatown, there appeared to be more Chinese then Italians. The food defiantly changed for the worse. Very disappointed in the change.

Seems like there is not many Italians around what's called Little Italy Anyway, it's a very vivid neighborhood. Safe to walk, at least during the day Nothing exciting that we could notice

Sadly Little Italy is slowly disappearing. The encroachment of. Chinese establishments is sad. What businesses that do survive and are still open are top picks. Love Angelo's for the best Lobster pasta and great Minestrone! Great meal deals and always the best in food, service and ambience!

Nice walk down the blocks to experience good food and great cannolis! Whether eating dinner, grabbing a snack or going for a stroll, it's a nice diversion and the LIttle Italy sign lights up at night for a great souvenir photo

Not a bad place in the whole neighborhood to eat! Toughest decision is deciding where! Wonderful atmosphere and good walking! Enjoy and not to be missed on a visit to the Big Apple!

Nice little neighborhood to take a walk, with plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants. In front of every restaurant there is a person who will try to get you in the restaurant, in a way that can be annoying after the 10th time. Otherwise it was nice to spend a little bit of time there.

So worth a stroll through this historic neighborhood. A few restaurants trying to go way over the top in their fake authenticity but the real ones are very evident if you stroll around and read the reviews. Must see.

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.
