Cha Cha's in Bocca al Lupo
Posted by Mario Manzini on 03/19/2015
I've eaten in Cha Cha's restaurant hundreds of times over the years and have always had a great meal there. The food is real Italian. I should know because I'm Italian and owned my own Italian restaurant some years ago. Cha Cha is the owner and makes you feel at home. Great personality and his food is authentic. I highly recommend it. When I am back in NYC, I always head straight for Mullbery Street to eat at Cha Cha's and take my companions with me who always love the food and atmosphere. Make sure you catch Cha Cha in the many movies that he has had parts in like GoodFellows and many more! Mario Manzini "Guinness World Champion Escapologist"

My friend and I went because they have a coupon on restaurant.com. Even paying only $3 for the $25 seems like a rip off. The waitress was clueless to say the least. They have a limited food menu and when we asked for chicken wings she had to consult the menu to check whether or not they offered them. At least that was amusing the food was not. We had the chicken wings, caprese salad and eggplant parmesan, all of this was edible... hardly. If you don't have any expectations maybe this is the place to go but I don't recommend it.

Not only did the food take an hour and a half to come out, there was only one waitress working and she was completely unpleasant. I ordered a caprese salad. I received a plate, one side with hard tomato slices and the other with tasteless mozzarella cheese topped with DRIED basil. This place is an insult to Italian food!

You won't find any homemade meals here. Everything is broken and seems as if the owner has just let the whole restaurant go. The silverware is always dirty and when I was their they were playing french music and then country.

This place is one of the jewels of Mulberry Street sticking to the tradition of a family friendly place. The tuna dish was fabulous!

I ate at Cha Cha's today and not only was the food good, the service was excellent . I've been in 10 or more of the restaurants in Little Italy and some are fair priced with average food, but many are too dirty to describe. I also stay away from the more "famous" ones as their prices are sky high and the quality does not equal it. It was over 90 degrees today. I sat on the back patio under a canopy and had a delightful time, so I definitely don't agree with some of the reviews here.
