The majority of Italian immigrants came to Ohio in the late 19th and early 20th century. Cleveland's Little Italy brought together these families that shared a common bond as they started a life in a new, exciting country.As the years passed and the community immigrated into the rest of the community, one thing in the neighborhood has never changed is the food. The best Italian and Italian American cuisine can still be found in the area, in restaurants all within walking distance of each other. Our Little Italy Food Tour will explore the Cleveland Italian culture that has existed for generations; its people, its philosophies, and most importantly its food. We will enjoy specialized dishes from a variety of restaurants; some long standing, some new to the area, while we take time to appreciate the contributions of Cleveland's rich Italian culture.
Your Food Tour may include the following:
• Cheese fcured meats from a local italian market

Our dishes may evolve faster than our website, as we work to give you the best Little Italy Food Tour possible!
