Ciao, purse!

A crook snatched a handbag from a woman at an Italian restaurant on Fifth Avenue on Oct. 31.

The 18-year-old victim told cops that she had hung her black purse on a chair inside Trattoria Mangia near Sterling Place at 9 pm, then walked away for half an hour. That was enough time for the jerk to steal the bag — and the smartphone and prescription medication inside.

Where: 119 Fifth Ave.
