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 The waiters were awesome! Sammy, Luis, and Augustine were so friendly! I was immediately comfortable and we ended up staying for 3 hours. The food was good too. I ordered the lasagna and was very content. They have an excellent lunch deal and an incredible ladies night as well. Oct 4, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by The servers were really nice and the food was great, but it seemed like the servers were understaffed that day for lunch. The restaurant was pretty full, so we had to flag down the servers whenever we wanted something. They were prompt and polite with our requests, but they rarely came to the table to see how we were doing. Maybe that's the normal style for lunch service in that area. Jul 7, 2014
