When La Mela Ristorante first opened twenty five years ago, its primary focus was to offer high quality affordable Italian cuisine in addition to a unique cultural dining experience.

    The Italian in Little Italy
    Lydias (227 reviews)

    Okay, it is a bit cheesy but the food, service, and location are wonderful! They have a little courtyard in the back, they have a lot of patio seating for people watching and they have what looks like two or three indoor areas. The food is like eating at your grandmother's, lots of really good food. There is course after course till you are stuffed and then there is the dessert! The staff is so friendly, they make you feel at home whether it is your first time or your twentieth.
