The shrimp francese with broccoli rabe was to die for. We topped it off with a nice bottle of Malbec. The music induced a wonderful romantic ambience.

The Spag Bol was absolutely to die for and the pizzas are probably the best I tasted on my visit to NYC. A really nice and casual spot, perfect after a busy day of sight seeing in NYC! Staff were lovely and helpful also !

Came here during our Xmas trip to NYC. Waitress was attentive despite being only waitress for the restaurant. Food was delicious and we saw our pizza being made in front of us. Was probably our favourite meal of the trip.

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

Il Piccolo Bufalo is a Trattoria with a modern spacious exposed-brick walled indoor dining room and inviting outdoor cafe with a comfortable relaxed atmosphere.
It features a diverse menu of traditional neapolitan cuisine and pizzas prepared in an open brick oven. The dishes are both modern and authentic, featuring most of the delectable favorites such as stuffed artichoke, spaghetti & meatballs, sunday gravy...... and other recipes the grandparents of the owner brought with them from Naples when they settled on Mulberry Street after emigrating from Naples in the early 20th century.
