Living in the Chicagoland area, we have access to many great Italian restaurants and having been to Little Italy in NYC multiple times I have to say that this little spot in Cleveland, Ohio was one of the very best Italian restaurants we have ever experienced! The food was authentic and outstanding. The olives were fresh, the pasta and sauces just the right texture and flavor and the Veal Scallopini was the best I have ever tasted! This restaurant allowed us to bring in our own wine, even though they have a robust list and the service was excellent. Finally, while small, the ambiance of this restaurant was quaint and lovely. The only warning - which has nothing to do with the restaurant itself, is that you will want to drive here because it's nearly impossible to get a cab to take you back into the city after 9:00 pm. We waited over an hour until our hotel finally insisted 2 cabs travel out to retrieve us. This is not the fault of this wonderful restaurant, just something to consider to ensure a great experience all around. This restaurant is worth figuring out how to get there and back. It is simply fabulous. I am still craving that meal!
