A true Little Italy landmark, The Dip, as the locals know it, has been a family-owned business for 42 years!
"The Dip" has a menu specializing in Italian fare and offers take out and catering. Only at the Dip can patrons try their talents in creating their own "Three 'P's": Pizza, Pasta and Pannio. In addition, "The Dip" was voted best place to have a Sicilian Canoli in the City.
Great patio in the summer and definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in the city. I've been coming here for a few years and it was one of the first places I took my girlfriend for a date.
The antipasto and chicken parmigiana are two of my favorites and the parmigiana is the daily special on Wednesdays!
This is a great spot to take clients or meet up with a friend for lunch, great food and great service.
I went with a couple of friends to Cafe Diplomatic for drinks last week and it was a good time. We ended up ordering a pizza at this Italian hotspot and it was very good. If your on college street stop I recommend you stop into cafe diplomatico
You can come for the coffee, but it's not the main draw. Instead, crowds flock to this traditional cafe for the big patio and often for the beer on tap. It's a great hangout to watch the parade of passersby in Little Italy.

The food, however, is secondary: The pizzas are basic, sandwiches merely satisfying, and pastas are often poor. The Dip, as it's known, attracts long... more

I had the Salmon burger, and it was okay. I could have had a better frozen burger. Service is pretty good. They don't accept debit.
Trashy place that reaks of sewer and rotten food at the patio. Slow service.
This is a hit and miss place. good thing the hits out pace the misses. It's inexpensive decent food. the patio is very big and very popular in the summer. When it gets busy, and it does in the summer, service gets bad. it will take forever to get your food and it will all come at once when it eventually comes.
i come here regularly because of the decent inexpensive food. it's worth the trip... more
You'd think that a place that has seen the likes of Sophia Loren darken its doorway, would be intimidatingly overdone. Not this unpretentious Little Italy hot spot! That lack of pretension is reflected in the crowd it attracts, from gawking tourists to long-time locals. They come for the great atmosphere, the cheap beer, the summertime alfresco seating, the perfect cappuccino and the downscale... more
