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

The apps and pizza were great, very good selection of wine as one would expect from a Little Italy.... More

Its not a long stretch of Mayfield Road but its all about being or eating Italian in Little Italy. There are a dozen excellent and very good restaurants and some galleries too. Its very close to Case Western Univeristy, The Cleveland CLinic, the Art Museum - you get the drift. Especially nice in the spring and summer for people watching.... More

Unfortunately Little Italy has been curtailed by the expansion of Case Western and University Hospital. Most of the people leaving there have moved to the suburbs over the last thirty years. What is left is essentially four blocks with a few shops, bakeries and restaurants (mostly mediocre, none excellent). By contrast a few blocks away the University Circle with the... More

Not enough shops, too many restaurants. Would like to have seen a shop to do a wine tasting and select a nice bottle of wine. there were only wine bars or wine in coolers in little markets
