“true to its roots”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

One of the most interesting ethnic areas in Cleveland, with many Italian shops and homes but also some great little art galleries and studios among them.

“Oh I loved this top.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

This was for me, the most enjoyable part of our visit to the Cleveland area.

Little Italy stops are something I do whenever I'm in an area that has one.

The food, the bakeries here are some of the best of any little Italy I've visited.

If not for the fact we walked here from our hotel, and the fact my wife said, "honey you simply can't eat all of this, before it goes bad", I would have purchased a bunch more.

“A memorable dinner at Etna's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Although we enjoy going to several restaurants in the Little Italy, we especially like Etna's. We were just there to celebrate someone's retirement. The food is incredible and the service is very friendly, attentive and professional. This is a must-do restaurant!

“Experience Italy in the Heart of Cleveland.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

From it's roots as an Italian Immigrant neighborhood to today's where the flavors and ambiance of Italy can be seen and inhaled as you past the Cream of Cleveland's Italian Restaurants, Bakery's and shops. We have never had anything less then a great Meal. Our favorite, although they are all close, restaurant is Guarino's. Veal Parmesan is outstanding. Service is excellent. The Decor is unique. The Bar has an excellent stock. Reservations are recommended. In the Summer leave time to stroll the area.
