Established in the late 19th century, Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood retains a historic and cultural charm that allows visitors to experience the authentic lifestyle of the community.

Located just east of downtown Cleveland and minutes from University Circle, Little Italy’s quaint, walkable neighborhood is home to cafes, restaurants, shops, and art galleries that allow visitors to experience its historical charm.

In the late 19th century, Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood was established by the many Italian immigrants who settled in the area that is now Mayfield and Murray Hill Roads.

Today, visitors can experience the cultural essence that has been kept alive through historic art and architecture, joined by cafes, bakeries, trattorias, boutique shops, and annual events attracting people from around the area and across the country.
