Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Little Italy in the Bronx on Arthur Avenue has a great collection of Italian restaurants & bakeries; the kind of neighborhood that once existed on Manhattan. Note that parking is always a problem in this crowded neighborhood, the 15-20 minute walk from the nearby Fordum Avenue train station may save you time & aggravation over circling looking for a parking space.

For many visitors to New York City, their only foray into The Bronx will be to visit Bronx Zoo or the nearby New York Botanical Gardens, to go to a game at The Yankee Stadium. It’s previous reputation as an area for gang activities and poverty stricken neighbourhoods has shifted considerable In recent years, and the borough has witnessed significant development. Still, visitors are wary, and very reticent to step away from these three main attractions and to explore a bit further afield.

One area of The Bronx which should be visited is Little Italy which stretches along Arthur Avenue in the Belmont district of The Bronx. An authentic Italian culture thrives here, and creates a truly vibrant community within the wider area of The Bronx, and it deserves a visit. Little Italy sustains a thriving business district that includes excellent restaurants, high-quality artisanal food shops, and specialty stores carrying handmade local and imported items that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Charming old-world ambiance emanates from the generations of Italian families who continue to give the area a welcoming small-town character that is unique for an urban setting.

Just wander the stretch between E Fordham Road and E 183rd Street. There are some great coffee shops serving excellent coffee (unlike many other parts of New York City), some decent bakeries for your ciabatta and focaccia , and numerous restaurants for a bite to eat. You’ll find some really good fish and meat markets, as well as a number go delicatessens for your olives, preserved meats and cheeses. Explore some of the side streets Arthur Avenue and you you’ll discover other things, such as the lovely Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.

As with visiting any new area, you need to use the same "street smart" mentality and common sense you would use where you come from.

I really enjoyed seeing and experiencing this vibrant neighbourhood; I found it more authentic than the ‘Little Italy’ neighbourhood in Manhattan.

Little Italy in the Bronx is a great place to stop before a game at the Stadium or when you are visiting the Zoo or Botanical Garden. They have great restaurants from white linen establishments to counter service. The food is mostly classic Italian American with the focus on southern Italy. Lots of little shops. Characters galore sitting are sitting at the sidewalk cafes. Parking is easy. You are likely to find on the street parking and you can pay at a pay station. Check it out.

Bring your appetite and your shopping list. Get a meal or coffee and a cannoli. Take your time and stroll around the neighborhood and imagine you could actually get to Europe.

I was so excited to go to little Italy in the Bronx, but I was not impressed when I finally got there. I much prefer little Italy in Boston, and also Toronto and Montreal. I am sure it was great back in the day, but it’s no longer what I would expect. If you’re looking for really nice bakeries and restaurants in New York, try Brooklyn in the Carroll Gardens area.

What a wonderful place to get a "taste of Italy." From Pastries to Pasta one can find it all. I enjoy the area for the feel of the Italian descendants. There are restaurants and businesses that are family run for generations. One can find quality imported products in every store. The area is fun for all. It gets packed with College Students from the local University and people come from all areas to visit. The food is worth the trip! Visiting Arther Avenue for the Ferraagosto Festival is on my bucket list. The area is already so lively, I am looking forward to seeing how much more festive it can be. All the places are walking distance from one another. I recommend a stroll through and then pick out a place for Lunch or Dinner, then find a place for an expresso and Gelato then find places to stack up food to bring home. Pick out great bread, mozzarella, prosciutto, imported olive oil or even a cigar. One will enjoy a day in Little Italy of the Bronx.

Arthur Avenue is the Little Italy in the Bronx. The area has the best Italian dining, restaurants, pastry shops, pork stores, grocers, coffee shops and pizzerias. During Covid they have outdoor dining that is comfortable. We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday afternoon and evening here after Christmas
