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.

  • What cute was visiting Little Italy! Were celebrating the week of San Gennaro and was a true feast. In Mulberry St.habia a fair, where there were benches where is selling Italian dishes. Beautiful! We had lunch at Ciao restaurant, all delicious and we ate the canoli of Ferrara that were delicious. Totally recommended!

  • Neighborhood where you breathe and live to Italy. The Fort of the neighbourhood are the Italian restaurants, with a lot of pizza and other dishes. Is against the Chinatown and worth making the two districts the same day, because they are relatively small. I ended up going through a street fair that takes place on Mondays, a great place to eat.
