We stayed directly across the street at The Ludlow Hotel and stopped in for a drink before a show on Broadway. The cocktails and apps were so good that we went back the next day for brunch. That is saying something considering the insane amount of place there are to eat on the lower east side. The owners (husband and... More

After a not so amazing meal in Little Italy, we were hesitant to try another Italian meal. However, it was our last night in NYC and right beside our hotel. The reviews on TripAdvisor are true. The food here was stellar!! The staff welcomed us in immediately and we just had a good feeling. I had the dish and finished... More

Great food - pasta, risotto and meat dishes were all excellent - even managed to squeeze in pudding. The welcome from the owner was very warm and friendly and the service attentive.

We chose this place because it looked good but they also took plastic where a lot of other Italian restaurants in the village only took cash. We were promptly sat and knew immediately we were in the best place. When the server in an Italian restaurant is from Italy you feel the love. We shared appetizers, each had a meal... More

A group of 7 decided to grab dinner on a Saturday night and all the places we were thinking were booked so I looked on Open table and found this place and decided to book it and I could not be happier I did. A few of us arrived and saw that the owner was a Chopped Champion which immediately... More

Met up with friends for an impromptu dinner here and was impressed with the owner's approachability and friendliness. Great wine recommendation paired with what very well may be the best lamb shank I've had. It was cooked to perfection. Appetizers were tasty and creative, and the desserts were spot on but lacked some of the sophistication I might have expected.... More

Great homemade pasta. Great service. The food tastes like your sitting in a restaurant in Italy. If you have to wait for a table, it's worth it. There's not many great Italian restaurants in NYC, but this is one of them!! It's so worth it. P.s. get the special dessert!!

We enjoyed a fantastic Sunday dinner at this cozy restaurant, with warm and friendly (but unobtrusive) service from the owner. We didn't have a reservation, but there was no trouble getting a great table. Meals were delicious. The pasta were cooked perfectly, and the steak was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Wine selection was fantastic, too, with the owner knowing his cellar inside... More

After arriving late at the Ludlow hotel, we crossed the street and visited this place. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. We got our pasta vongole and a glass of red wine. It would be a five star if it wasn't for the volume, it was almost impossible to talk to each other.

We randomly went into this restaurant because it was next door to our hotel and I am so glad we did! The food was great and the people who work there instantly became our new friends. The owner was great and sat with us and had drinks and shared stories and the bartender really knows how to make people feel... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
