The heart of this well-known Italian neighborhood is Mulberry Street. Years ago, the vast majority of people who lived here were Italian, but expansion of Chinatown and Italian migration to the suburbs has changed the make-up of the neighborhood. Still, cafes, restaurants and bakeries line the street. Take a walk and smell the fresh baked bread, garlic and sauces. Stop for a glass of wine or tiramisu at a sidewalk cafe, or gorge on the salamis hanging from store windows.
These cute sidewalk restaurants can pack a punch when the bill comes. We had six glasses of coke and were billed $17 for them. The food was good, and when ordering a special, it's at a reasonable price.
I'm not a cheap person, but I know I could have bought three cases of coke for that price.
it is supposed to be little Italy correct????? Well I must of missed them because I saw everything but Italians.
On top of this I went to a HORRIBLE cafe(cafe palermo) the workers were not of Italian descent and no Italian speaking service was offered.
I liked that little Italy had a alot of stuff sort of like a mall to buy.I bought a scare when I was there that you can put in your hair or wear it around your waist or around your neck and my friend bought her boyfriend a sword.We are planning a trip back to New York Soon and we are going back to Little Italy
Every year we visit Little Italy's La Mela. It has grown over the years (somewhat to my dismay). But for family-style, loud ass Italians...this is the place. It's a prix fixe menu - you walk in and they are slamming down the bottles of wine (refuse whatever you don't want like peligrino, b/c they can be pushy) and then the antipasta, cheeses, the pasta, the meat - the veal - mama mia! What a place! Skip dessert there and walk up the next block to the FAMOUS Ferrara. Since 1892 you cannot go wrong here.
After fighting our way through a dirty and packed Chinatown, Little Italy was a breath of fresh air. The streets were clean and lined with small trees, The resturants were great, and the street vendors were easy to deal with, not pushy or forcefull at all. Overall it reminded me of a block party where evryone knew each other. I would love to go back and spend more time there.
Would recommend Little Italy to anyone that enjoys good food and nice shopping. While my husband and I were there, the streets were blocked off for the Memorial Day Celebration, so we could walk with ease and no fear of the wild taxi drivers. The Cafe's and Resturants had opened up their side doors and extended their business onto the street, for outdoor dining. It was nice to sit and have a nice meal while people watching.
i liked it because the food was good everywhere i`ve ever been down there and the people are very friendly
its wasnt too expensive because i didnt break any glasses and drink 4 sodas but great places to bring dates over in little italy
