We waited 1 hour to be served because waiter forgot to put in our order. 20% gratuity automatically put in the bill so no way of compensating 1 hour wait. Food quality mediocre for the price. Avoid at all costs, tourist trap.

The food was simply excellent! I went with my wife and teenage boys. We had veal sorrento, chicken parmigiana, fettuccine alfredo with shrimp, and chicken frances. Everyone raved about their meal. Entrees were between $21 and $25 each. Certainly more than Albany, but that’s to...More

This place sold themselves as "the only 4-star restaurant in Little Italy". Loud and crowded. Small portions of bland food. Designed to empty your wallet and have you appreciate your Olive Garden when you get home. Stay away.

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
