We were coaxed in by the friendly guy at the door. He was Charming and friendly, so we said we’d give them a go. Friendly owners, but the waiters were poor and little English. The Antipasti had luncheon meat! At an Italian restaurant!?! The wine...More

We were actually coaxed in by the host to eat here when we were walking by. We just wanted pizza...something low key, but decided to eat here anyway. Service was excellent and the pizza was good.

Great pasta and service. The bread was ok. Only complaint is there is only one bathroom stall for the whole restaurant.

Food was very nice but after much persuasion from Waiter my partner opted for seafood special - he neglected to tell us that it was 60 dollars & while it was nice, it certainly wasn't worth that. Service was slow & waiter was indifferent. Would...More

I went to Little Italy with some friends for dinner on the closing night of the San Gerrano festival. The food came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The place is easy to notice, has outdoor seating and reasonable prices. We were seated almost immediately...More

We ate at Sofia's during the San Gennaro festival. The wait wasn't too long to sit outside, but once we sat down service was slow. Food selection is good and food was decent. Maitre D outside was a bit annoying yelling to people on the...More

We ate at this lovely restaurant, after some gentle coaxing from the owner out on the pavement and we are really glad we did. We were wondering through Little Italy and were looking for somewhere to have dinner and there is a huge choice available....More

Stepped in here unplanned... "Home made, home made" "Don't like it, don't pay" Utter nonsense to pull you in. Starter comes, clearly from a box out of the freezer with a tomato sauce with chopped garlic..... no amount of garlic (enough to sink a ship)...More

The place was packed due to the festival. We could have chosen a dozen or more Italian restaurants but we liked what we saw on the menu and dove in. Our food was excellent including the calamari appetizer. Good service.

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
