Recently, I combined visit and pleasure in the Big Apple and was amazed and excited to learn my brother would also visit. It was his birthday! My brother made reservations at Onieal's, a tucked-out-of-the-way spot in Chelsea, or maybe Soho (I am so unfamiliar with this part of town, gravitating to Broadway and Central Park). Was I ever glad we'd... More

Very nice inside, good ambience. The drinks were nice but liquors are pricey which we discovered when we got our bill (to be expected in NYC). The restaurant is also nice but small so would recommend booking on busier days (weekend etc). The food was nice but limited option for vegetarians which is a little disappointing. The service was fast... More

Had no idea of where to go for dinner and get away from crowded Midtown restaurants. Place was cozy and beautifully decorated and we were seated in a comfortable table right by the window. We were a party of 5 with various tastes and needs. Menu was varied and responded to all of our tastes. Service was sharp and subtle.... More

We stayed at NobleDen a few blocks away and stopped for dinner one evening. The food was very good and reasonable, for NYC prices. Very cozy front dining room (but small - make a reservation) and a bar area renowned for mimosas and other cocktails. There is dark woodwork and warm classic decor - well-suited for cold weather when you... More

Good branzino al cartoccio (tasty And well cooked) And beatiful location just next to Little Italy. Even though some of our group got to the restaurant later than the time of reservation, they were patient and did not give away our table..very Nice from them..restaurant sincerely recommended

We went here as a big group with a last minute reservation. Even with the 'real' they gave us in drinks, they were rather expensive. The food was good, we had a lot of appetizers between us. Music was really good at night, though other dinners were probably annoyed by the volume!

We stopped in for a drink expecting a causal pub. This place is a little more upscale. Waitresses dressed in short black dresses, I'd call it more business casual, If that's what your looking for. Service was slow, we went to the bar and ordered our own drinks. They average about $14 for a mixed drink. If you are looking... More

Had fancied giving Onieals a try and have to admit it added to the intrigue as it was the bar that was used as "Scout" (the bar owned by Steve and Aiden in SATC). We were staying just 5 mins away and had had a lovely dinner in little Italy just around the corner when we decided to give it... More

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.
