My Favorite Restaurants in Little Italy

  1. 01

    Gelso & Grand

    Italian Restaurant in Little Italy
    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    The Gelso & Grand is a successful mix of a restaurant (with excellent pizza), a bar and a small outdoor area. It is not only super stylishly furnished, but also has typically Italian good espresso. The audience is colourful: from families with children to couples and business espresso guests.

    La Mela

    Italian Restaurant in Little Italy
    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    A good address if you want to go out for dinner in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. The food comes from the hands of a real Italian family. The mussels are highly recommended.

  3. 03

    Da Nico

    Italian Restaurant in Little Italy
    Add to myNY added

    Especially in summer Da Nico is a popular restaurant because of the many outdoor seating possibilities. The backyard is very romantically designed and invites you to linger. The service is exceptionally friendly and the food is fabulous.
