October 10, 2014 - Before going to Severance Hall for a concert, our group of four walked from the Glidden House Inn to Cleveland's Little Italy; a 15 minute walk. There are many find Italian restaurants, pastry houses and drinking establishments at Little Italy. My wife and I had visited Little Italy a couple of years ago. Tonight, we chose... More

i was there on a weekday with freinds from out of town, 9 in all and we were seated inside at 1pm. The restraurant was pretty empty and we were seated quickly. The waitress took our orders while the busboy poured the water, the waitress was in a hurry and we had to call her back to order salad which... More

Went there for a family dinner and was disappointed in our meal. The pizza was extremely oily and not a margarita pizza! It came with giant pieces of tomatoes with a glob of dripping cheese. The crust was very thick. The Linguine with mussels came as spaghetti. The mussels were average with not a lot of flavor. The kids pasta... More

My son's wedding rehearsal dinner was held in this restaurant and we had a large party of 32 guests. The solarium was the perfect size and the atmosphere was cozy. We had a wonderful wait staff that served our guests perfectly. They allowed us as much social time as needed and brought our food in an orderly and efficient manner.... More

We have always had delightful meals here, until this time. The clams were plump and juicy, but the broth was awful. It tasted like they had taken the wine, the butter and raw garlic and just poured them separately over the clams, rather than sauteing them in it. We both had the chicken picata. The chicken was unevenly flattened with... More

Originally we had made plans to eat at Mama's Santas but when we got there it was closed. We signed up on the waiting list for a fancy restaurant next door but the waiting time it was at least an hour. We kept our options open and look around for plan C. That's how we ended up here. They had... More

A nice place to spend a lazy summer evening, outdoors on the patio. We ate here on a moderately busy night but it seemed as if the food took a while to arrive. We had bread to munch on, and the time passed pleasantly enough, but I'd hate to have to wait for food on a really busy night. Salad... More

We arrived at the restaurant with high expectations, but without a reservation on a Thursday evening. Several tables were available and seating was not a problem. We found the service good, and received a nice portion of Italian bread, butter and a tasty Bruschetta sauce within in a couple of minutes of being seated. We split a House Salad which... More

We were very satisfied with this restaurant! Great calamari and the pasta dishes were fantastic! large quantities and great pizza. The margarita pizza was something I will definitely be back for. You are 100 percent better than anything we ever tried in Little Italy N.Y.

If you want BIG portions of MEDIOCRE food - this is the place for you. The meatballs have more filler than meat and not much flavor. My "specialty of the house", eggplant parmesan, was served room temperature and needed to be sent back to heat up. It was big enough to feed three people - seriously - and just not... More
