I absolutely LOVED this place. I was looking for a great little Italy experience from good wine, to great Brick Oven pizza. The host was very accommodating giving us great help selecting a wine, and the service was super fast. The ambiance was perfect and made the experience so enjoyable. I will definitely come back and have already referred some friends. More

Italian | Little Italy, Manhattan

Not your father's Little Italy restaurant. Not the red sauce centric restaurant like so many restaurants in the area are. The downstairs has a hip vibe to it. Our server was cool and friendly but totally a professional. The GM paid attention to us and chatted, telling us about the food and ingredients. The food was delicious. The restaurant itself has a downstairs and an upstairs (we ate downstairs.) It got busy while we were there. They did run out of certain options on the menu but the recommendations as substitutes were great. I will come here again, no doubt. More

Discover Little Italy

While New Yorkers usually don’t frequent Little Italy, there are old country gems that aren’t overpriced or overrun with tourists. Head to the outskirts of the neighborhood to find the best in Italian eats of all varieties—classic brick oven pizza, clam houses, mom-and-pop shops slinging chicken farm, and more. From buzzing bistros where Obama and Lenny Kravitz are VIPs to casual delis making timeless hero sandwiches, there’s a lot to taste in these historic blocks. Just remember to save room for a cannoli or other dessert of la dolce vita.
