It's been years since Italians were actually the majority in New York's Little Italy -- the neighborhood is nearly 90% Asian now -- but the one thing that keeps the Italian presence strong in this part of town is the food. The best Italian restaurants in New York are of course in Little Italy. Some family-run eateries have been operating in Little Italy for over a century. These are the backbone of the neighborhood, and a must-have New York dining experience. Most of Little Italy's restaurants are together on Mulberry Street. The annual Feast of San Gennaro takes over Mulberry Street for 11 days each September. The festival is a jubilant celebration of Italian heritage with parades, music, and food -- including a cannoli-eating competition! Over one million visitors flock to Little Italy to participate each year.

Di Palo's authentic Italian market is an important stop for foodies in Little Italy. You'll have to take a number and wait a little while, but the fourth-generation family-run deli's fresh cheeses and meats are worth the wait. Savvy shoppers time their visit for 1pm, when the daily porchetta emerges hot from the oven -- it may be the best pork in Manhattan, and it's a treat to get it straight out of the oven. Though Italians are far from the majority in Little Italy, Italian roots are strong here, especially in the cuisine. Lombardi's is America's first pizzeria. Alleva Dairy claims to be the country's oldest Italian cheese shop. Ferrara Bakery & Cafe purports to be America's first espresso bar. All these firsts are still going strong Little Italy. Browse the multitude of Italian eateries in our New York restaurants pages. Search Little Italy by price and ratings, and read reviews. Bon appetit!
