Little Italy has been significantly reduced in size from its heyday in the first half of the 20th century and nowadays comprises a few bustling blocks below Houston, bordered by Crosby, Bowery and Canal Street. Packed with Italian cuisine and armed with a lively atmosphere, this is where you go to have a proper Sunday supper or take your date for some late night tiramisu. A new generation of restaurateurs and retailers have moved into the former social clubs and mafia hangouts, making the neighborhood both trendy and historic. In summertime the restaurant tables take to the streets and the Feast of San Gennaro in September draws over a million visitors each year.
