With only a few spare hours, we decided to take a ride to Little Italy based on the reviews and our location. It's a quaint 'little' area you can walk through; gives you a taste of Italian culture. Many restaurants, few boutiques, and Presti's bakery is a must-stop! Great place with delicious pastry, Italian favorites, bread, and a seating area... More

I love to walk the sidewalks of Little Italy and eat in one of the small cafes there. I have been disappointed though the last two times we visited, that none of the little shops are open before lunch time. Most don't open until 12:30, so we weren't able to see them. Even the bakery wasn't open. The food is... More

Was a nice afternoon. Walked and stopped at one of the wonderful bakeries. Also stopped for a little lunch.

It's not a big area, but the food is great! I'm currently eating my way through Little Italy! Stay around for dessert and espresso! Not seconds from the RTA. Parking fills up fast but the pay lots are reasonable.

I love coming to Cleveland just to return to Little Italy. I have been to a couple of Italian restaurants, but my favorite is Trattoria Roman Garden. Service is always great, and the bread and bruschetta before dinner is so fresh. Try a pizza! Wonderful area of Cleveland for gelato, Italian pastries and espresso.

We've visited many Italian neighborhoods in the United States. This was one of the nicer neighborhoods. We first visited on a Saturday night and it was raining. We were still very intrigued with the place so we returned Sunday night. Restaurants were open and people were out enjoying the area. The local shops were not. open

Quaint and charming area for many Italian restaurants. Many to choose from. Not too many things were open because it was Labor Day.

Just a wonderful experience. Spent a few Sunday mornings in the after Mass and it's always a pleasant time. Pop into a few galleries, smell the breads baking, enjoy some great food. Just a nice little nook to check out!

There is a reason USA Today regarded Cleveland's Little Italy one of the most definitive of its kind west of New York. Be sure to explore the whole six-block area, as there may be much the lazy tourist may miss. A cursory search on the web site reveals MORE than TWO DOZEN eateries, bakeries and delis (and a few bars)... More
