Little Italy - photo Bob Perkoski
Mention Little Italy to a Clevelander and you are likely to be regaled with stories of Neapolitan-style pizza, veal parm and creamy gelato. That's expected as this historic neighborhood has been home to Italian immigrants for generations. But dig a little deeper 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 art galleries and studios. Nearly two dozen galleries can be found along the charming brick lanes, with the highest concentration taking up residence in a converted brick schoolhouse. 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.
