I don't get out there often enough when I visit New York City, but LITTLE ITALY is always a great place to dine and reminisce about wonderful time spent in Italy.
Mulberry St. is the main strip with all the shops and restaurants..........truly reminds you of that little cobblestone street you dined at in Florence.....or Positano!
I don't have a particular favorite restaurant in this area, although there are quite a few "infamous" ones here that would be frequented by the local mobster clans. (so I've been told).
I just go there and base my choice on how good-looking the waiters are! Bellissimo!!!!
The Little Italy in NYC was a disappointed for me. It was too touristy. You basically have a few blocks of expensive Italian restaurants. Sorry folks, I love Italian food, but not when it's this touristy. I'd skip it and head to the livier China town next street.
Centered around Mulberry Street from Spring Street to Canal Street in Manhattan, Little Italy is packed with New York's best Italian restaurants and cafes offering great food at reasonable prices. Walking down the narrow streets you're tempted by the sights, sounds and smells of Italian cuisine and culture coming from the restaurants surrounding you at every step. Oh, this Spaghetti Carbonara was so good... yummy :-))
Walking beside the narrow, cobblestoned streets beneath the fire escapes of turn-of-the-century tenements, you're tempted by the sights, sounds and smells of Italian cuisine and culture emanating from the restaurants surrounding you at every step.
GO VISITING LITTLE ITALY, CHINATOWN and take a look everywhere the subway can bring you just hanging around. The best for me is visiting some parts of the city were there is still an heart. SOmetimes skyscreapers are so cold.
For visitors who enjoy eating, the restaurants in Little Italy offer reasonably priced food in quiet and friendly surroundings.
Go to the corner of Spring and Mulberry on a Saturday
and watch Olivia, from the SPRING LOUNGE.
Olivia, an inhabitant of Little Italy.
When she gets a break from her day job(bldg. maintenance) she has a drink and directs traffic.
And you get a perfect view from the Spring Lounge.
One of the suburbs of NYC is Little Italy. You will find good restaurants up here. And it is nice to walk around in this busy suburb.
Little Italy was one place I saw on every ganster film I saw, but like other things in movies, is smaller than you think, now is in the middle of Chinatown and has a few restaurants on it.
Walk around , explore the shops, visit the bakeries and coffee shops. May not be what it ounce was but its still the part of New York I love the most.
After dining at midnight, and before heading out for our last night of "club-hopping"....it's always helpful to top the delicious dinner off with a cup o' java.
Little Italy is getting more and more little??? I think Chinatown is eating Little Italy.
Have pasta with red wine in a restaurant and enjoy this colorful neighborhood
Little Italy isnt a Misnomer it Is a Little (very,very,very little) Italy blessfully free of hordes of street vendors and home to a few cute little resturants.
Delicious aromas of pasta and garlic fill the street as you wander past restaurant upon restaurant featuring Italian food. Give in to temptation and have a bite to eat.
