Casabella Ristorante, Little Italy, NYC

Sun - Thurs 12am - 12pm
Fri & Sat 12pm - 1am

What we ordered:
Fresh home-made mozzarella with tomatoes & basil
Italian Toast with chopped tomato and basil
Baby squid in sweet & sour sauce, balsamic vinegar, raisins & pignoli nuts
with Chicken -$18.50 with Shrimp -$21.50
Wide home-made noodles tossed with fillet of tomatoes & three wild mushrooms

Breakdown: AMAZING!! I wish I had more words in my vocabulary to describe our meal. The best, must order items of what we experienced were the LASAGNA & THE PAPARDELLE ALLA FUNGHETTI. Everything else was good, but these two were TO DIE FOR!!! Ah, my mouth waters just thinking about it. The pasta in both are fresh and melt in your mouth like butter. The red sauce at Casabella must be the specialty, you can taste the years this recipe has been passed from generation to generation. The atmosphere in Little Italy is always perfect, but my favorite is when it starts to get chilly. Most places have a fire place, cozy feel, amazing wine, and a great view to watch the snow fall. If you're in the area, don't forget to try to Sangria at Casabella, delish!!


  1. I tried pretty much everything at the table as well & It was all so delicious! You can tell that everything including the pasta is made from scratch! And I could really use some of that Sangria right now! Yum!

  2. DId they have grilled Calamri on the menu?
