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. Today, this sentiment still stands. That is why La Mela Ristorante is a well known staple of Mulberry Street in New York’s Little Italy.
La Mela has an a la carte menu as well as several options of the family style dining menus that made us famous for delicious and plentiful food. Our complete menu is available every night until 2am, with the exception of Fridays and Saturdays, when it’s available until 3am. La Mela welcomes large party events which can be accommodated in any of our four party rooms. We can accommodate groups of anywhere from 5 to 400 people.
At La Mela our customers are family, and that is why we display our family photos on our large plasma TV screens seen throughout the restaurant. Another unique aspect of the dining experience at La Mela is that our walls are papered with photographs of our customers over the years, including celebrities from Bill Murray to Frank Sinatra. Come on down and maybe you will be the next person who gets their photo on our famous walls or on our TV displays!
