On a recent trip to Cleveland, my wife and I visited the Historic Little Italy, which is located within walking distance to Case Western Reserve University. It was a great experience. We dined al fresco along the sidewalk on the side of a restaurant. Dinner was a little pricy, so I guess you could say that it had an authentic... More

There are very few shops worth stopping in, sadly. The restaurants have all become rather pretentious...with the same menu's they had 20 years ago which included salad back then. Today everything is ala cart including the meatballs in your spaghetti. Shameful. Maxi's gave us 4 ravioli for 20 something dollars. For the money, I would recommend Etna. The chef is... More

I hadn't been to Historic Little Italy in many years. it has changed drastically. the prices are outrageous. the place we stopped at had nothing at all that we would eat. and can you imagine getting spaghetti with no meatball and for $18. it was really pouring down rain, so we didn't want to walk up and down the streets....

There are many bars, restaurants, shops in Little Italy. We had a great dinner on the main road. It was a nice safe area to walk around.

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

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.
