Plan early on coming to Little Italy, parking could be an issue. But so well worth it! Yes, on a weekend it was a bit busy, but we knew that and so the others enjoying the ambiance of this location just like us were no surprise. So many delightful windows to look in and see what is inside. The many... More

I think it was worth the trip to see. It is very great experience. Don't expect high end and lot of stuff. Restaurant were all very casual style. Hard to find parking. Food was okay but not awesome in any way. Must try but the move on. Enjoy.

So overrated. All the restaurants are outdated menus with rude service. In 1970 or so this MIGHT have been a good food area. Corbos and Presti's are the only decent places now. So many better areas to visit in Cleveland. Do not waste time here.

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
