So many fun places to eat in the Little Italy section of Cleveland, it is difficult to single out one. But I will - Presti's at 12101 Mayfield Rd., Cleveland , OH 44106. Bakery, with Italian specialties for breakfast, lunch and dinner till 8-9 PM. There are finer and more expensive places to eat - please note that Presti's has... More

Gusto and Maxi's (fun, be sure to stop in if only for a beverage and app ) and Etna (great basic Italian food and family-oriented) are a little less formal and less expensive, the atmosphere (very Italian at Gusto) is great as is the food at all three. Valerio's (don't miss the prosciutto/cheese app and/or the chicken livers [and I... More

This was a great place to go. There are numerous restaurants and an exceptional bakery to finish off your evening with coffee and dessert. There are so many items in the bakery it was hard to choose.

For an anniversary celebration, hubby and I spent the day at the Cleveland Art Museum and made reservations for dinner in Little Italy. Wow, what a great day/evening well spent. Based on restaurant reviews, I think more than one visit is required to find "your" place. There are plenty to chose from and range in size, formality, and authenticity. We... More

Little Italy is a small strip in Cleveland. Well worth the trip to have a meal here. Eat at Mia Bella and have dessert at Corba. There is valet parking in the evenings over the weekend we were there.($5).

Visiting Cleveland this week, and was lucky to arrive in the same week as the Feast of the Assumption at Holy Rosary Church in Little Italy. I had not been to the Feast since 1970. A street carnival with Italian food - sausage sandwich, catavelli with meatball, pizza, etc. You buy tickets to purchase the food and drinks, rather than... More

One of the best "Little Italy" cities in the states. An abundance of great restaurants with great Italian food. Try "Angelo's Nido Italia" for great dishes and a real Italian experience. Sit outside and enjoy the street and foot traffic passing you by! Many great art shops and unique specialty shops. If it fits your schedule, visit during the "Feast... More

One of the better "Little Italy's" in the U.S. The food is authentic southern Italian. Don't miss Mama Santa's pizza (cheap and good) or Presti's doughnuts. Things have gotten somewhat up scale since I used to hang around here in the 1970's so you may see a fee Ferrari's and Lambo's driving around.
