Our server never asked us if we wanted anything to drink, so all we had was water. The food was delicious, but again, our server never asked if we wanted more bread... we never had the opportunity to ask because our server only came to take our order , deliver food, and give our Check. Overall, it was enjoyable, but poor service. More

The food was AMAZING. I got their chicken sorrentina and my husband got their lamb special, which was quite sizable and delicious. All the waiters spoke broken English, so you know it's authentic. I would highly recommend based on our fabulous experience. More

Discover Little Italy

While New Yorkers usually don’t frequent Little Italy, there are old country gems that aren’t overpriced or overrun with tourists. Head to the outskirts of the neighborhood to find the best in Italian eats of all varieties—classic brick oven pizza, clam houses, mom-and-pop shops slinging chicken farm, and more. From buzzing bistros where Obama and Lenny Kravitz are VIPs to casual delis making timeless hero sandwiches, there’s a lot to taste in these historic blocks. Just remember to save room for a cannoli or other dessert of la dolce vita.
