Easy area to walk around and people watch. Some great restaurant choices in the the area as well. Art galleries are tucked in here and there. There is always live music to hear as well. Check the calendar for the farmers market.

There was barely anything to do or see. Did not feel like an Italian neighborhood and was very small. I expected so much more and when we arrived in the neighborhood I just said that's it? I see so many glowing reviews about little Italy...More
