Loving that Little Italy


Cleveland is amazing for the amount of neighborhoods that were or are still enclaves of a group of people from a specific location.  We are a city of immigrants, built with the smells and sights each culture brings.  Little Italy is located adjacent to University Circle area, and adjacent to University Hospitals, and the Case Western Reserve University Campus.  And the food, and culture of Italy is alive and well on Mayfield Road, and the surroundings of Murray Hill neighborhood.  Opera music at La Dolche Vita, and tomatos ripening on a vintage cast iron plant stand in front of another restaurant, the wonderful bakery and food of Presti’s Bakery, the smell of Pizza baking at Mama Santos, or the sound of diners enjoying their dinner au fresco in front of Maxis… these are the wonders of Little Italy.

And we are so very delighted to return to the Little Italy Art Fest 2016, this year located in the lot adjacent to the Mayfield Theatre.
