The only time we go to Historic Little Italy is for the "Feast of Assumption" Catholic Holiday which is 4days. You can buy Italian street food or eat in one of the Authentic Italian Restaurants. You can wander into the shops and bars and restaurants. During this festival, the streets are crowded with pedestrians. There are amusement rides near the... More

A crowded place of restaurants, bakeries and apartments. They hold a nice festival every year filled with overpriced street food, but great for people watching. Some of the restaurants are super tasty, like Washington Place Bistro.

The atmosphere, the history--it brings me back to growing up days. My family and I came here all the time. The favorites are Mama Santa's for pizza. Great food and service and cheap pizza (cheap in price, not quality). Trattoria has great tiramisu and if you're craving gelato, head to Anthony's.

Almost all the big cities have a neighborhood they call little Italy but this one is for real. My grandmother used to take me there over 60 years ago and they will still catch conversations among the locals in Italian. I recommend two places most of all. Presti's bakery for some great bread (Try the Eppi bread for sure) and... More

You can walk to and visit several different galleries. Pizza, pasta, traditional Italian or eclectic Italian. My favorite is Guarino's, the oldest operating restaurant in "the neighborhood". Corbos or Presti's for dessert? Hmmm try something at each place.

We have been here before, and parking is always difficult, at best. But the last time was several days after a very heavy snow. The streets were a total disaster, had not even be touched, parking was next to impossible even after driving around in circles for 30 minutes. Potholes everywhere, so be careful where you drive. When we did... More

The first time I came to Cleveland, I wanted to check out its Little Italy. Being of Italian descent myself, I was very impressed with the authenticity of this small town. The feast of the assumption, held annually in August, is a perfect time to visit the area and dine on samples from all neighboring restaurants. Or just take a... More

Step onto the sidewalks and smell Italy. Food is great, people are great. A day visit trip for couples or family.

This area always has something going on. Festival's, art walks, street fairs. Great shopping, food and culture. Don't mis Trattoria on the hill and Presti's bakery.

Little Italy, situated on Mayfield Rd and East 120 / 125th, is a flourishing and important part of Cleveland's history. There are many storefront style restaurants, bakeries and boutique shops all within about six city blocks. Situated very close to Case Western University and several hotels, the part of town is very walkable. This destination should be on everyone's list... More
