The Feast of San Gennaro, the annual Italian street festival in NYC, kicked off its 11-day run last Friday, and just hearing about it is making us hungry!

Each year, San Gennaro takes over the streets of Little Italy to celebrate the culture, music, and most importantly, food of Italy! There are vendors hawking Italian classics, like sausage and pepper sandwiches, the nieghborhood’s tiny cafes and restaurants are packed, and a few especially ambitious eaters even participate in a cannoli-eating contest.

If you can’t make it to this year’s festival – or if you just don’t feel like fighting the crowds – you can still get your Italian food fix. We’ve rounded up some of the Italian restaurants located in Little Italy on Delivery.com. Check out there menus, place an order and have your very own San Gennaro celebration at home.
