very quaint and nostalgic section of Cleveland

I love to just park my car and walk around the blocks of this part of town. I usually will purchase something to go. I've had good and bad experiences at some of the eateries.

My husband and I have been to Italy and Little Italy in NYC. We were not expecting anything big, but we had heard good things about this one. We ate at a top rated restaurant, walked around a bit and then had a gelato. We were not impressed. It felt too Americanized and not as authentic as we had hoped.

We did a walk-through of Little Italy on a late morning last week as part of exploring the University Circle area. It was warm and our walk was pretty much confined to the Mayfield Road corridor. We found this particular Little Italy to be a bit too tourist trappy for our tastes, but that's just one couple's opinion. We had... More

Very comfortable-like going back to an old hometown. Walking is a must, from small shops to restaurants. Places I have visited: Mama Santo's- good food and lower prices, Eatna- really good food a little more pricey but still a good value. Michelangelo's- awesome food but you will pay for it and it is worth every penny. A good mix of... More

Don't miss this charming area while in Cleveland! Authentic old-school family run restaurants and bakeries line the main street. We enjoyed hand-made pasta at Mama Santa's Pizzeria. Truly amazing food! Corbo's Bakery was our next stop for Italian cookies and cannoli. We saw the bocce ball courts, but no action - maybe next time. We can't wait to go again.

Very nice neighborhood. Proximity to train. Though expensive, there are variety of Italian restaurants to pick and choose your dinner. It is difficult to find parking, You need to go for valet parking or you need to drop the car near the train station. The park gives you a nice outlook of the university buildings. You can also go around... More

I walked around here and this part of town seemed so lively and fun. I even walked by a Italian restaurant and it was blaring the Godfather music it cracked me up. There was nice churches to go into and check out. There are great bakeries here as well. Definitly worth your time.
