Little Italy has that old NY feel. It's like going back in time. Too bad it's gotten so small. The street is filled with back to back mediocre Italian restaurants. It's become a tourist area. Being a local I no longer enjoy going to Little Italy.

Little Italy was much smaller than Chinatown which it borders in downtown New York. They have lots of nice restaurants and the atmosphere was clean and nice. Not much more than restaurants though.

We spent hours walking around and shopping in the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, and LIttle Italy provided a very nice change of pace - very laid back, Old World charm, the food smelled great, friendly people. Stopped at a restaurant, was seated at an outside table, and enjoyed a nice appetizer of fresh mozza wrapped in proscuitto and a couple glasses of Italian wines for a reasonable price. Sampled more fresh cheeses at a corner cheese shop and bought some unusual noodles for home. It's a small area but I think that adds to the charm. I read lots of reviews saying it wasn't worth it. I disagree wholeheartedly. If you are nearby, make the effort to stop by for awhile.

My girlfriends and I ate dinner, shopped, sampled Italian desserts, and drank some red wine in the neighborhood. Highly recommended! Fun atmosphere.

We were surprised by how small Little Italy was. It is pretty much dominated by Chinatown all around it, but we found it to have plenty of charm. We stopped at one of the restaurants for coffee. Worth visiting and trying out some of the food, but you have to look for it around Mulberry Street. A hidden gem that's worth a visit.
