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

Mama Santa's is the very best pizza you may ever eat & people watching at a side walk cafe on a warm summer night is one of the best things to do in Clevland!

Cleveland's Little Italy is as good as any major city. There are heaps of restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops here to be enjoyed. It's just East of the University Circle so as soon as you leave a museum there you can head over here to eat. I tries about five different places here for food and coffee and they were... More
