Little Italy, New York City

(2.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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.
