ANOTHER ONE GONE DOWNHILL

IT SMELLS FUNNY INSIDE - LIKE THE WALLS ARE WATER-LOGGED. THE LAST TIME I ATE THERE, I KEPT HEARING SOME SORT OF CHIRPING IN THE WALL - PROBABLY RATS.\r \r THE FOOD USED TO BE BETTER...PRICES HAVE GONE UP.\r \r SERVICE IS MEDIOCRE

Boisterous Fun with Good Eats

Go with a group, eat family style and be prepared for a loud night of fun with very good food at a very reasonable price. We ate here for the first time as a party of 8 on the Saturday evening after Christmas. For $34 pp we had a very good five course meal. Various musicians would wander in off the street to serenade the diners. Some were good, others were not. Some people enjoy this, others find it annoying. F... view more

It's Italian

My friends and I accidently stumbled upon Little Italy randomly on our last night in NYC. It was a friggin street party! We all fell in love.\r \r So we decided to stop into La Mela and have some dinner. The experience was AWESOME! We all sat outside and two of us ordered a glass of wine. Instead of bringing two glasses our waiter brought the bottle and said to enjoy and if we didn't drink it all he wouldn't charge... view more

It is what it is

La Mela is pretty typical of what I like to call a ""red sauce joint"". Is it romantic ? no. Is it the best food you ever had ? I hope not. Look, the thing about this place...Its not really trying to be any of those things. From the flourescent lighting to the vinyl tablecloths to the giant bottle of screw top house wine left on your table - ""you pay for what you drink"", you know what you are getting into here; g... view more

CREDIT CARD FRAUDS

ALL,\r PLEASE BE NOTED THAT THIS PLACE HAS BEEN LATELY CAUGHT FOR CREDIT CARD FRAUD. A FEW OF US VISITED THIS PLACE DUE TO ITS GOOD ONLINE REVIEWS. THE FOOD WAS SUB-PAR. THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE AS WE WERE FORCED TO ORDER WHAT THE WAITER WANTED US TO ORDER. THE WAITER WAS VERY RUDE AND LOUD AND WAS SPITTING WHEN TALKING. HOWEVER THE WORST CAME WHEN WE HAD PAID AND LEFT. WE WERE 5 COUPLES SO WE SPLIT THE BILL 5 WAYS ... view more

HORRIBLE. Stay away!!

This restaurant was the absolute WORST restaurant I have ever been to in my life. I was visiting NYC for the first time and decided to eat in a nice little restaurant in Little Italy. And boy, did I make the wrong choice. Right as we sat down, my friends and I noticed that the grated cheese in the shaker on our table had completely hardened and looked months old. Then the bread came and not only was it cold but hard ... view more

Great Italian Food!

I never write reviews but I felt the need to let everyone in on one of the best kept secrets in NYC, and that's La Mela on Mulberry Street in Little Italy! It's not the fanciest place in the world but if you're looking for a traditional and festive atmosphere with spectacular food, La Mela is your place. Do yourself a favor and don't even look at the menu. Just let the wait staff do their thing and bring you out the... view more

Great food, lots of fun

Im from Houston Texas and was visiting New York. We wanted to have lunch in Little Italy and found this place. The food was great, I really like it and have never had such good italian food. The wait staff have a little attitude but its expected, makes you think you are with the Sopranos haha, I liked it. I got to practice my italian and they were really nice. This is a great place and I will be coming back.
