The most amazing mussels, pasta and bread! They seemed low on staff but the service did not lack, our waitress was attentive and the atmosphere was great even for a rainy evening. Definitely recommend eating at this delicious restaurant.

the service was pretty bad. they dropped off the food and never came back. had to get up and go find someone to pay. the carbonara was a but bland. the chicken parm was good

Everything was perfect! We chose to sit inside and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations for our meal. We both chose pasta…ravioli with white cream sauce and tagliatelle with Sunday sauce. Enjoyed an aperitif to complete the meal. Our next trip back to NY we will be coming back again!!

Came in just at opening time for brunch. Pasta was good, servings were huge and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Waitstaff was nice and accommodating despite not being fully prepared for service. Would go back for dinner.

Had dinner here last night, so disappointed….poor servers were ran off their feet doing everything, no host or manager on site the entire time…
We needed several things but went without as everyone was too busy to ask.
How can you run a busy restaurant with no one at the front door or no manager?
Outdoor street dining table was small for 3 big men ranging from 5'10 to 6'4
Enjoyed the food and drinks, service staff was very nice and came over constantly to make sure are drinks are refreshed. Very good experience
Such a nice gem in Little Italy! Food was great, portions were big! I loved the vibe! Will definitely be back
Thanks for the lovely review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We hope to host you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
If you are looking for homemade pasta….look no further. Aunt Jakes is the place. I have gone 2 weeks in a row and not one complaint. Food is fresh and savory….what more could you ask for.

I took some of the Father’s in my family out for a pre Father’s Day dinner.
Everyone loved their meals and drinks.
I choose to do the bespoke cocktail it was the best cocktail I have had in a long time the ingredients were blended perfectly. I choose vodka with pineapple garnish, pressed apple juice and clover honey.
Our waiter was patience as a few ppl kept changing or adding to their custom pasta dishes.
I will be back very soon
Thank you so much for the five star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our bespoke cocktails and the ability to pair your own pasta shape with sauce makes dining with us fun as the possibilities are endless! We hope to host you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
I had very high expectations for this restaurant but not in an over-hyped up kind of way. Unfortunately, my carbonara was incredibly bland (and I never say that). The portions were huge, which was great, but flavorless. We sat outside which could have affected the level of service in terms of frequency and attentiveness, but there was something off about our waitress -- we felt like we were bothering her for very simple requests like water after not having a refill in 30 minutes. Annoying and disappointing experience.
our dinner was delectible but made all the mor delightful by our server Mathew -- amazing! i just wish the chairs were more accommodating/comfortable for thos of us of ample sizing.
Amester, Thanks for the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our super star staff members go out of the way to ensure each guest feels right at home. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's

Great outdoor set up so separate all the tables and give a private dinner. Food was delicious and service was also great!

We found this place on Yelp. The food was amazing but our server Jessica or Jessy was not very attentive and overall put a stain on our first time there. I recommend making sure you do not get her as a server. I cant stress how great the food was at Aunt Jakes, every dish we ordered was so good. If you are in Little Italy, please try this place.
Pascal, Thank you for taking the time to review Aunt Jake's Little Italy. Our delicious food keeps all of our customers returning to our 3 venues! I believe the server you had that evening was just starting training, so we appreciate in advance your patience with our new staff. All the best, Aunt Jake's
Pasta was delicious especially carbonara with squid ink noodles. Staff was really nice!
EsterC, Thanks for the 4 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our mouthwatering carbonara pairs perfectly with just about any pasta shape. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and look forward to seeing you in the future. Best, Aunt Jake's
We sat outside (at our own request), but ended up wishing we had been inside. (Smoke from passersby, sidewalk traffic in general)
DarcyM, Thanks for taking the time to review Aunt Jake's Little Italy. We are sorry that your outdoor experience was not up to your standards, but unfortunately we have no control over cigarette smoke from foot traffic. Aside from your disappointment with the smoke and traffic, we more importantly hope you enjoyed the food and service. Thanks, Aunt Jake's
Service was slow
We appreciate your five star review of Aunt Jake's despite the slower service. We truly hope you enjoyed your food and that your next experience with us will be superb. Looking forward to hosting you soon! Best, Aunt Jake's
The service and atmosphere were really nice. The dessert was the highlight of my experience. I had the doughnuts with salted caramel sauce. OMG! The doughnuts were warm and fresh. It went so well with the salted caramel sauce. The fried calamari and broken meatballs were underseasoned and I remember it tasted more flavorful when I last visited about 4 years ago.
Flora, Thank you so much for your review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! The doughnuts are out of this world and should be enjoyed after every meal. We are sorry if the calamari and meatballs were underseasoned but glad you enjoyed the rest of your experience. Best, Aunt Jake's
Best food!! Absolutely love this place. Highly recommend
KaitlynR., Thanks for reviewing Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Our food, ambiance, and service keep our customers coming back. We can't wait to host you at any of our locations again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's

VictorM, Thank you for your lovely review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We would like to consider ourselves a neighborhood gem, and hope you would agree with that. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
Food is good, but Sunday service was really slow. 40 mins of a wait before our food arrived.
Kate, Thank you for taking the time to review Aunt Jake's Little Italy. We apologize for any poor service. The restaurant industry as a whole has been greatly impacted and now suffers a labor shortage which in turns effects our business. That is no excuse for a disappointing experience though. You should have been informed of any delays that day. Our sincere apologies and we hope you choose to dine with us again in the future. Best, Aunt Jake's
Been there for dinner and brunch. It's our favorite pasta place, and everything else we've had there has been great.
Brunch was really good also. The lemon ricotta pancakes are delicious and great to share for 3-4 people as an appetizer.
JRS1, Thank you for the 4 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We are thrilled you enjoy brunch and dinner, and look forward to hosting you again in the future. Best, Aunt Jake's
Service was terrible - our waiter only checked on us once and it was after we were almost done with our meal. The chicken parm was very good, but it didn’t even come with pasta - that was an extra $6! The shrimp scampi lacked flavor. If I were back in the area, I wouldn’t return.
Place is nice but the food is very bland. Wouldn’t go back. There are much better Italian restaurants in the city
I've been to Aunt Jake's in Little Italy several times and it never disappoints. The staff is always welcoming, attentive and makes diners feel at home. The food was excellent as always and Aunt Jake's is becoming one of my favorite places. It's perfect for groups or even a date night. They have something for everyone. Parking is a bit rough due to the location but if you're on public transportation, it's located near multiple subway lines. Great place.
Food was good portion and very delicious!
The host was incredibly rude. I had to ditch my reservation and go to another restaurant.
Awesome food, great service, yummy cocktails. Young crowd but felt totally at home
DanielleD, Thanks for the review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We try to make each guest feel like they are at home, and there's no easier way to do that than by providing great food, drinks, and wonderful customer service. We hope to see you again soon! Best, Aunt Jake's
The handmade pastas are incredible. Highly recommend the Lamb Ragu and the Sweet Potato Gnochhi.
therea1jrod, Thanks for the 5 star review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! Be sure to enjoy the Lamb Ragu again before it's removed for our Spring menu! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
Aunt Jake's is a consistently solid option for Italian cuisine. Their pasta and sauce selection is amazing across the board - one could not get tired of the possible combinations! Their short rib is also extremely tasty. I would recommend sticking with entrees, as they are generally a better value than the appetizers. Oh, and the Aunt Jake's cocktail is fuego.
Fayze, Thank you for the review of Aunt Jake's Little Italy! We appreciate the feedback and look forward to hosting you again soon. Best, Aunt Jake's
The wait staff barely came to our table and even though the restaurant was empty they were rushing us out towards the end. The food was great but the experience was subpar
Favorite brunch place!
