Not sure why this is considered an "attraction". This town is deserted with nothing but closed business. It is essentially the"hood". We came through several times because we were visiting family but I honestly didn't see anything worth stopping for. In fact, if you find your way on this street, do yourself a favor, lock your doors, do a u-turn... More

Only a few restaurants tells you that this is a area called Little Italy. It compete with chinese shops etc. Don't expect a romantic area like a lot of Piazzas in Rome. Its long time since Vito Corleone or look alike could be found in this area

Pine ave. is called "Little Italy" because it used to be surrounded by an Italian community. It has since turned into slum. There are some places on pine that are worth a trip: Micheal's restaurant, the Como restaurant, Dicamillo's bakery and Latina's. It is not somewhere you want to bring your family and walk around. Visit these gems and that's... More

if you go down here you should see that you made a bad decision it is the fact that it is just what people apparently call "The Hood" it is very depressing to see what it has come to.

Some businesses/civic leaders named a stretch of Pine Ave from Hyde Park Blvd to 19th St Little Italy because of a handful of Italian restaurants and businesses. It doesn't remind anyone of Italy in any form or fashion. Not many Italians live in the area anymore...but if ylu venture there look for Lahacienda (Italian) and the Como restaurants. Both are...

Honestly I spotted the name first and thought it was a Mexican restaurant but decided to look them up on Trip Advisor to see what the reviews were then found out it was Italian food. Anyway, the food was great I thought and so did my whole table of 6! Cheese Ravioli, Mushroom Ravioli, Linguini with Clam Sauce, Meatballs, Sausage...... More

As other reviewers have stated this is a disappointment. Not like I was expecting Marlon Brando to be sitting at a corner table or Al Pacino in the men's room. No, I never got that far, there was nothing worth getting out of the safe automobile to see. Perhaps, if I had a local as a guide I might feel... More

Unfortunately, Little Italy has been over ran with crime, poverty, and you see a lot of poverty and what we'd call in other cities, obvious prostitutes and dealers on corners. I wouldn't recommend a family trip through this part of town!

The best meal we had at Niagara Falls was at Michael's restaurant, they have excellent pasta and desserts, really worth the trip to Little Italy. The best Italian restaurant, staff was friendly and helpful, food excellent. We look forward to returning in the future.
