We've visited this restaurant 2 times and we've been just 5 days in NYC! Food was great, we tried few pastas and all of them were great. House wine was also very good. All in all you can't make a mistake with good Itanian food!

Stopped here today after being approached by a nice Italian young man who was telling passers-by about the place. I was craving some cannoli and a cappuccino. The cannoli was so fresh and crispy and the cream was so delicious. The server was very nice...More

Have you ever been moved to tears in a movie or book; because the completion of the scene is so powerful, overwhelming, emotional!?! That is how the food at this authentic Italian restaurant made me feel! Never in my 52 years have I been so...More

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
