We had a small baby shower here for about 10 people. The staff was excellent. The took pictures for us and let us stay as long as we wanted. The Lasagna was wonderful and so was the Cannelloni as well. The appetizer of stuffed olives was great also and I do not like olives! I would love to go back... More

We heard so much about Little Italy that we decided to go there after a university tour. We looked at the menu a decided this was the place for us. What a mistake. After ordering it took a half hour for the server to come back and tell me that the entree I ordered would not be like it was... More

This restaurant serves great Italian food in a traditional and authentic old Italian home. The restaurant celebrates its 100th anniversary next year. This is a special place. Lasagna from an old family restaurant is awesome and the portions are generous. We come to this restaurant each time we visit Cleveland.

Atmosphere is very European- Italian. Cozy, warm and inviting. The aroma is tantalizing. We visited in winter but there is a beautiful patio in the back.

Whenever we go into Cleveland, we make it a point to visit this restaurant. It has wonderful atmosphere and ot truly has a family feel to it. The owner goes around and talks with everyone. Excellent food. Highly recommended.

While the place has a long history, my lasagna was unevenly cooked and tasted fairly basic. Service was ok. There weren't many other places open in Little Italy on the Saturday afternoon I was there. I'm not saying I wouldn't go back, but if I'm in the area again, I'd probably check out some of the nearby restaurants first.

On a day trip to Cleveland we decided to have lunch in Little Italy. We randomly picked this restaurant because there were lots of cars in the parking lot, which usually indicates it's a good place to eat. There were 2 sizeable groups seated. One was definitely a birthday party. So the room was rather noisy. We were seated up... More

This restaurant has been around a long time and still is always very good and consistent. Prices are very reasonable and the servings are plentiful. I would recommend the lasagna but the veal and other pasta entrees are winners as well. Great place to go before events at University Circle like the orchestra, etrc.

We went for lunch on a Sunday. There were only a couple of tables when we arrived, but the restaurant filled up by the time we left. Our food was delicious - the gluten free pasta was great. The house salad was a bit over priced for being a side salad. The dining room reminded me of my Italian grandmother's... More
