After being basically bombarded walking down Mulberry street dealing with people trying to get you into their restaurant, we finally decided on Lunella only because the prices weren't as high as the other places. And the guy outside wasn't quite as annoying either. Despite the...More

Took a chance because we were hungry and they didn't do that aggressive crap to talk you into coming inside like some of these places have adopted. The wait staff was great. No rushing, like in Italy. Before ordering the two small plates and wine,...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
