Tomiño - Taberna Gallega
Tomiño - Taberna Gallega
(232)
$$$$
Spanish | Little Italy, Manhattan

Best Spanish food I've ever had outside of Spain (I've traveled there quite a bit). Stylish, modern, comfortable dining room. If full, will get loud due to hard surfaces, but there's no intrusive music and tables are relatively well spaced by NYC standards. Wide-ranging, reasonably priced Spain-centric wine list; lots of good options by the glass as well. Nice variety of vermouths, sherries and orujos too. Five tapas shared by two made for a filling meal. High quality across the board, but the grilled wild mushroom casserole was extraordinary in terms of balance of flavors and textures and overall complexity. Mango ice cream was the best I've ever tasted, and the torrija de bica is a delight you probably won't find anywhere else. More

Piacere
Piacere

$$$$
Italian | Little Italy, Manhattan

The ambiance at Piacere is second to none if you are looking for a casual, warm, wood-burning pizza restaurant with a gracious staff and, above all, a delightfully quiet and pleasant place to have dinner. Wood walls, beautiful wood tables are neither too close nor too far, and the lighting is low but not dim. The pleasant wine list is competitively priced, and the sound of Italian was heard from those behind the bar. The two dishes we tried were also pleasant, and I would return there without hesitation if I were looking for Italian food or pizza 'downtown.' More

Loved the atmosphere as it felt as if we were dining at a restaurant in Rome. The food was delicious. My friends had the branzino with risotto and I had the Neopolitan lemon chicken prepared with eggplant and prosciutto - mouth-watering. The pistachio gelato was divine. All in all, a great dining experience. Would definitely return. 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.
