I love Little Italy. Can't get enough fresh pastas and brick oven pizzas! Don't forget the Gelatos! Outdoor seating during spring and summer is so much fun

After visiting Chinatown we walked through Little Italy. The place was very fun to visit and the atmosphere was very cosy. Our tour-guide told us that as time changed in Little Italy broke borders with Chinatown and while citizens fro LI moving out of centre people from Chinatown expanding in LI.

Little Italy is a much smaller version of itself nowadays since the bordering Chinatown has spread and taken over much of the area. There's still cute Italian restaurants, but not much else. The North End in Boston is much better and feels me authentic than the Little Italy here. If you're in Chinatown, swing through, but I wouldn't recommend a special trip just to come here. It's like only one block now.

Little Italy once extended from Houston Street down to Lower Manhattan. It's now barely three full blocks along Mulberry Street. Sure it's a little cheesy, but you can still find really good Italian food. Don't miss the Feast of San Gennaro, a festival in late September.

While visiting New York last November 2014 I explored Chinatown and walked to Little Italy, because it was right next to it.

I think Little Italy is very charming and a great place. Especially end of November where the Christmas season begins and you walk around on this cold day seeing all the decorations and lights you just want to go to a local cafe and warm yourself up with some tea or so.

Little Italy is a nice place to go for people visiting NYC, not sure about the summer season but in winter definitely very cozy and nice.

Little Italy is sitting in Manhattan Chinatown, it is literally packed with a bunch of Italian restaurant and a lot of outdoor table for guess. It is also a little bit clean then the nearby area.

Great place to enjoy lunch or a gelato while strolling around looking at all the street art. The Little Italy Street Art project (LISA) keeps great street artists contributing masterpieces such as Tristan Eaton who has both the first mural and the Audrey Hepburn piece down the street.
