They say Rome wasn't built in a day, and the same can be said for Little Italy, one of New York City's most quaint, romantic, and historic neighborhoods where legends like Robert Deniro and Frank Sinatra spent most of their famous youth. Founded in 1908 by the Davino family, Grotta Azzurra was named for the blue grotto on the Isle of Capri and designed to evoke the beauty of one of the worlds most famous caves in the world, intensified. Enrico Caruso feasted here after performances, and Sinatra called it his one and only favorite Italian restaurant, making it the site of many a Rat Pack evening. Shuttered for six years, Grotta Azzurra has now been stunningly renovated and rebirthed by a descendant renaissance for dining in Little Italy with multitalented chef Frank Castellana recreating the finest in Italian cuisine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by friendly service, beautiful place, looks of menu items to choose from, beware they do add a 20 percent tip to each bill which was fine with me. Buy I did see other tables complain. Food was excellent very fresh and delish. Jan 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by A great Little Italy dining experience. We chose the prix fixe lunch special and were very happy with our selections. Everything was delicious. I would visit this restaurant next time we are in New York. The only thing I don't like is how they add the tip to the bill. I would rather choose my own tip to add. Jan 5, 2015
