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.

Cozy dining and tasty Italian cuisine.

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!

Good times

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.

Talk about location! This is one of the best patios in Little Italy for kicking back and watching the parade go by. The scene varies from Italian grandmothers to community families and plenty of dressed-up visitors (especially on weekend nights). 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

Celebrating its 40th year as primo patio destination, "The Dip," as its affectionately known, still dishes out affordable, filling pizzas, pastas and paninis. Summertime is ripe for a heaping pitcher of sangria or comparing your knock off D&G shades on street side patio. Soccer posters and collages of snapshots adorn the back walls inside to an otherwise simple interior. There is no other place... more

This place's exterior will catch your eye and make you feel like they have the most authentic Italian dishes ever made. Not too mention their Patio that seems to fill up during the summer. However, low and behold people do not be fooled! I came here and will never ever ever in my life return. Me and my sister both ordered two panzerottis and what came on a plate was a Panzerotti gushing in half... more

Although the taste was okay but something is wrong with this... 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
