Little Italy, New York City

An urban village that attracts thousands of visitors every year, Little Italy is known for its restaurants. The authentic food served at these eateries is a centerpiece of many cultural events in the neighborhood. If you talk to the locals, you'll find that many of the restaurants are built on places that involved the New York mafia from the early 20th century. Wander down the narrow streets and find a small storefront joint to enjoy a meal. See Little Italy and all New York City has to offer by arranging your trip with our New York City trip planner .

  • Very small, due to the expansion of Chinatown, only a few restaurants not very well rated by TripAdvisor, and some stores, with the same thing that are all over the city.

  • Disappointing compared to Chinatown. There may be good places here, but on the street you hardly feel like Italy or Italy in the USA. There are hardly any shops, everything seems to be geared towards gastronomy. If you are only in the city for a short time, you can safely skip this area.
