Great place in a classic little Italy street. We had lasagna, gnocchi alla Gorgonzola (soft real potato gnocchi), and spaghetti carbonara.

Such a great little place. Great atmosphere, lovely staff, really nice to talk to. And the food was unreal! We walked in for some lunch and we're so surprised at how nice the food was. Highly recommended! Would definitely go back again.

Had a late lunch/early dinner with friends and we were very happy with our choice of Lunella. The service was a little slow but the food was great. Caesar salad dressing was excellent. I chose the Rigatoni alla Vodka with pieces of fresh salmon --...More

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
