My pasta was under- cooked and the clams were tough- difficult to chew. We always eat here when in NYC, but we will dine elsewhere upon our return.

Real old school Italian. Had old school stuffed gnocchi which was wonderful. Bigger place than it looks. 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
