Owner description: Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

The ambiance, the restaurants, sitting around and watching the
world go by, is such a special treat.

After a bus tour we walked back to this area as it’s history was so interesting. The places to eat are varied but all good from French bakeries to trad Italian restaurants. Make an effort to visit Nicks on Broadway for brunch... locals hang out there and you will see why, it’s a little further out but worth the walk. Italian piazza was a little gem of a place and as usual in this city everyone was so friendly and helpful.

If you like Italian food it's ok. The sidewalks have a lot of trip hazards so be careful. There is a lot of Italian food restaurants. We didn't eat at any of them. There is a lot of trash on the streets and sidewalks so that kinda blew.

This is not a great area for just walking around. Yes, there are quite a few restaurants right along this street, but have something picked out and know where you are going to park. The area where the restaurants are is not a big area, so if you were hoping to walk around and go shopping after dinner, this isn’t the right place. Also, parking is really tough. Most restaurants do not have their own lot, its all street parking.

We wandered around after having lunch and found a few interesting food stores-quality Italian groceries sometimes hard to find--and lovely bakeries. The area is mixed as far as cleanliness and maintenance--some obvious almost derelict stores-but the ones in business , for the most part, are well-cared -for. A nice little interlude to see. Some free parking but mostly metered.
