Firstly, this restaurant has by far the best curb appeal than any other restaurant on Mulberry St. Beautiful open doors give the restaurant a great summery vibe. Perfect for families and couples new to the city and looking for an amazing lunch or dinner of authentic Italian food. Their sauce is the best I've ever had and recommend that everyone... More

Pizza was good but the salad was a little heavy on the balsamic, and the service was a little lacking. Took a while from them convincing us to eat there to them actually serving us with even a glass of water. Never did get our 2nd drinks we ordered as they forgot. That saying the food was good, not cheap... More

Great food, Great service, a bit pricey but a great last nite in NYC dinner. So many restaurants to choose from in Little Italy, but glad this was the one we chose. Excellent food.

I love visiting this restaurant every time I visit NYC! I'm Italian, so I'm pretty critical with regards to food but this place reminds me of my mother's delicious cooking back home. This place has a lovely atmosphere that harbors a traditional vibe. Waiters are attentive and knowledgeable of the cuisine. The owner is very hands on and accommodating. She... More

The food was ok. Our server took our order and never came back. Our busboy was attentive to refilling drinks, getting a side of sauce. I had to go in search of our waiter for our bill. He kept going by us, but never looked at us. Maybe because I'm a woman with my 18 year old niece he thought... More

I ordered the Chicken Scarpariello, which translates into Shoemaker's Chicken, and it was absolutely delicious. It went nicely with a bottle of Chianti. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The Accodian player played "That's Amore" which induced a festive ambience. This is a beautiful restaurant which lived up to its name. (Casa Bellla means Beautiful House in Italian.) My solo...

6 of us drove into Little Italy for dinner. We were hawked to check out the menu at Casa Bella. They were busy and the place next door only had a few people there, so logical choice right? Menu looked good and a table right on the street was getting up so we sat down. Service was constantly attentive, and... More

Great location, right on the corner, we had a attentive waiter and our food was delicious! I had home made gnocchi and it was heavenly! Will definitely come here again.

I'm 100% Brooklyn Italian-American and rarely eat at Italian restaurants...nothing like home cooking. So, I was skeptical when friends suggested a get-together there on a Friday evening. Then I read the Yelp reviews, which were mixed, to say the least. Well, forget the Yelp reviews. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The eggplant parm was fresh and tasty. The inside... More

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood Profile
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 for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
