Mention Little Italy to a Clevelander and you are likely to be regaled with stories of Neapolitan-style pizza, veal parmesan and creamy gelato. That's expected as this historic neighborhood has been home to Italian immigrants for generations – and, well, we all have to eat!
But dig a little deeper, past the cheese and meatballs, and you'll discover a lively borough where students, artists, families and visitors peaceably coexist. Second only to the restaurants in popularity are the area's eclectic art galleries and studios. Nearly two dozen art galleries can be found along the charming brick lanes, with the highest concentration taking up residence in a converted brick schoolhouse. Artwalks are a frequent and favored form of weekend entertainment.
Close to University Circle and its medical, cultural and educational institutions, Little Italy is a natural choice for students and staffers of those institutions to live, eat and play. Visit nearby Lake View Cemetery, a 300-acre cemetery that doubles as the neighborhood's Central Park, and you'll discover all the trappings of a residential community. Dog parks, picnics and casual strolls are all common sights at this 140-year-old gem.
