    Best Italian Restaurant In Little Italy! :-)

    We went in to N.Y. for the Feast of San Gennero! La Mela had the finest Seafood Appetizers The Pasta was cooked perfect the portions were plentiful!! Our waiter went out of his way to make sure it was an enjoyable dining experience!! I would say while in N.Y. enjoy La Mela!!

    Little Italy at its best

    Just came back from a trip to Italy. La Mela is just as good. Food is great Service is wonderful. Ask for Camille. Typical NY Italian. Not pricy for NY. Great atmosphere with truly Italian settings. Its not a fast food restaurant so sit and relax and enjoy one plate after another. If you are from Texas, this is not a ketchup and noodles restaurant. Real Italian food prepared at its best

    Excellent dining experience

    We visited La Mela on our trip to NY. This little restaurant was great! The food was delicious, prices reasonable and the service was excellent! We can't wait to go back!

    For little Italy, it isn't bad!

    I'm not exactly sure what the complaints are about in other reviews. First, welcome to New York -- it is expensive (in case you didn't notice.) Secondly, welcome to Little Italy, a place mainly for tourists! That aside -- when I find myself in Little Italy I do head to Le Mela. Its friendly and the food is good. Sure, I can make my own pasta and sauce at home (I live in Midtown), but, if I'm downtown and in the mood for Italian, Le Mela is my choice. Granted this is not the best Italian restaurant, but, certainly not the worst and certainly does not deserve the negative reviews written. (Perhaps those writing the negative reviews are accustomed to Egg Noodles and Ketchup that is passed off as spaghetti and tomato sauce in their hometowns. And, have no idea about "real" Italian food.) So ignore the negative and give Le Mela a try if you are in Little Italy. You'll like it - really!

    great real Italian food

    the food is excellent -real home cooking, I am not a tourist and eat in La Mela atleast once a week--- ask for broccli rabe or escarole, tossed salad or the fish-this is what grandma makes !!

    I had the spaghetti and meatballs, which were $14 or $15 and very overpriced for the quality. The spaghetti sauce was almost flavourless and the meatballs weren't much better. My friends' meals were similarly priced and similarly mediocre; this place seems to me to be a catering to tourists.
