The place is nice inside but we were sorted outside because was busy. Pasta al pesto was ok but lasagne where awful with a lot of ricotta inside (definitely not an Italian ricetta). The service was too slow as we waited 40 minutes to get the first plate.

Every bite was sensational-able! I loved every bite. I enjoyed the beet salad, fried mozzarella and artichoke pizza! The house wine was spot on and a great wine for the price. I will always come back when I'm in little Italy! The service was amazing too!

We have been dining at this same spot for years and have brought many people to this restaurant and it never disappoints! The service is always great! Vodka sauce is to die for. Calamari prepared perfect. Lots of competition in the city for dining, this needs to be on you list. Side note. Left my phone and case with money... More

Coming back from Lower Manhattan decided to stop for lunch at Pellegrino's in Little Italy. Atmosphere is warm and inviting. Service was more than adequate. We started with their mussels in white wine sauce. Both of us agreed they may have been the best we have ever eaten, so plump and juicy. Not over cooked. While it was not on... More

Horrible sour marinara, tasteless pasta, old (yesterday's or even older) side bread. For 30 usd minimum. Would not recommend to anyone. Probably, would not recommend little Italy places to anyone. Have not been able to find a single decent one throughout the years.

We wanted to eat an authentic Italian meal in Little Italy. We stopped here on a busy Sunday night without reservations and they were gracious enough to seat us. Food was delicious, staff was excellent, very friendly. Highly Recommend.

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.
