A visit to Little Italy, one of Cleveland’s most enduring neighborhood enclaves, will stay with you forever.
This historic section of Mayfield Road harkens the early 19thcentury when the pace was a little slower, business was done with a handshake, and everybody knew everybody else.
Little Italy is also contemporary – a home for artists and artisans of ceramic, glass, fabric and paper, hip salons and coffee-roasters. Wafting through the air are sweet and savory scents of the finest Italian cuisine, grab and go cafe food, and of course plenty of pastries and sweets.
Little Italy welcomes you to sit amongst locals at the biggest community table in the city, hosting events that bring thousands of people to the neighborhood. Come and experience The Feast of the Assumption, Taste of Little Italy, the Columbus Day Parade, the annual Bocce Tournament and incredible Alfresco Summer Nights where patio dining is like no other, and you just might hear an impromptu opera!
Learn more about Little Italy, with a stop in the Visitors Center, on the corner of Mayfield Rd. and Random.
